Master Mix: Brownie Mix

Making a bulk batch of this Master Brownie Mix will not only save you money, it lets you make delicious treats at a moments notice, and control the ingredients over those store bought convenience mixes!

This can be made with regular sugar or a sugar substitute for a sugar free brownie mix. I made mine with Splenda, but you can choose any sweetener that measures the same as sugar for baking. (You could even do half sugar half Splenda for a low sugar /lower calorie brownie if you wanted too!)

Jan's tip:I made only half a batch today, since we are empty nesters and won't be feeding hungry kids anytime soon! So my picture of the mix is half of the recipe you'll be making!

Brownie Mix
Makes about 15 cups of mix

In a large bowl combine all ingredients.
Sir with a wire wisk til well blended.
Store in an airtight container.
Use within 10-12 weeks.

Jan's tip: You can double the brownie recipe for a 9x 13 pan.  Batter will be thick.

My favorite  optional topping for the brownies:

Chocolate Topper
(based on an 8 " square pan)
Sprinkle 1 cup choc. chips onto warm brownies. warm for a minute in oven till melted then spread evenly over brownies. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top if desired.


  1. Hi! Thanks for the Brownie mix recipe. When my 17 yo was in kindergarten we had to bring a food to class that started with his letter of the week. When we got "B" we made Belly Bustin' Brownies. Just make some brownies and mix chocolate chips into the mix. Then during the last 5 minutes sprinkle the top with mini marshmallows and more chocolate chips on top of that. The kids loved them. Now that the boys are much older they still ask me for Triple B's when they come over.

  2. This is Fantastic.
    Was thinking, I store my extra cake mixes in the freezer (I buy when they are on sale and stock up) So why couldn't a person store this mix in the freezer as well.
    I just bring out a dry cake mix from the freezer like the night before so that it gets to room temperature before mixing up my cake
    Thank you
