How Do I Make Strawberry Brownies with Cake Mix?

Since these quick and easy brownies are made with just four ingredients, they can be prepared with just a few minutes of hands-on work. Just follow these four easy steps to make your own strawberry brownies right now:

Step One: Prepare the Pudding

Start by mixing the instant pudding and milk together in a large bowl. Mix the two ingredients together until all the pudding is dissolved and the mixture has begun to thicken.

Step Two: Add the Strawberry Cake Mix

Pour the cake mix into the bowl with the pudding. Do not follow the instructions on the back of the cake mix! Simply add they dry mix to the pudding and stir until the dry ingredients are fully mixed into the pudding.

Step Three: Mix in the Chocolate Chips

While chocolate chips are optional, they do add a ton of flavor to the brownies. If you plan on mixing the white chocolate into your treats, add them to the bowl and lightly stir to mix them into the batter.

Step Four: Bake the Brownies

Grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, then spread the batter evenly across the pan. Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, until the edges are just beginning to brown and start to pull away from the pan. Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing and serving.

How Do You Store Strawberry Brownies?

After allowing your brownies to cool completely, it’s time to enjoy eating them! But if you can’t finish the whole pan, you may be wondering what to do with the leftovers. Start by covering the pan with plastic wrap or transferring the leftover bars to an airtight container. After that, the brownies can be stored at room temperature for up to four days.

Strawberry Brownie Recipe Ideas

Once you see how easy these four ingredient brownies are to prepare, you’re going to want to make them over and over again! And with these simple recipe ideas, you’ll have plenty of variations to try every time you bake them.

  • Top with icing. White chocolate chips are a delicious addition to these strawberry brownies. But if you want to change things up, try spreading some icing over the top of your cooled brownies instead. You can use white icing or strawberry icing to add even more flavor to your treats.
  • Mix in some fresh strawberries. Take the flavor of your brownies up a notch with the help of fresh strawberries. Dice the strawberries into small pieces and mix them into the batter. Or top your brownies with strawberry slices to decorate the top of your treats.
  • Use vanilla pudding. If you can’t find strawberry flavored pudding at your grocery store, try using vanilla instant pudding instead. While the strawberry flavor won’t be as intense, the cake mix will allow you to give your treats the flavor of strawberry without the need for strawberry pudding, too.
  • Add some dark chocolate. Turn your treats into chocolate covered strawberry brownies with the help of dark chocolate chips. Replace the white chocolate chips with dark chocolate to add a unique flavor to your treats.
  • Decorate with sprinkles. Add some more color to your pink treats with the help of some sprinkles. After the brownies are finished baking, top the brownies with sprinkles to add some rainbow colors to your cute strawberry treats.
