Ways to Dress Up Brownie Mix

Brownie with Pretzels

Sticky Fingers Fudge Brownie Mix is an easy and delicious base to add your favorite flavors for a customized dessert. Utilize any of the following three steps or combinations to unlock unique flavors! 

Step 1: Swaps for the Batter 

Instead of Water

  • Strong Coffee or Espresso 
  • Half & Half 
  • Milk 

Step 2: Fun Mix-Ins 

  • Coffee or Espresso Powder (1-2 Teaspoons) 
  • Nuts such as Peanut, Walnut, Macadamia 
  • Freeze Dried Fruit 
  • Frozen Berries 
  •  Chocolate; Semi-Sweet Chips, Milk, Dark or White 
  • Candy; M&Ms, Reese, Peppermint Patties 
  • Pieces of Cookies 
  • Rice Cereal 
  • Nut Butter 
  • Jam or Jelly 
  • Marshmallow Fluff 
  • Nutella 
  • Salt on Top 
  • Pretzel 
  • Sprinkle 
  • Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Paste (1/2 Teaspoon) 
  • Peppermint or Mint Extract (1/4 Teaspoon)
  • Orange Extract (1/4 Teaspoon)

Tips: Save some mix-ins to add on top of the brownie before baking. 

When adding Mix-Ins, add between 1/4-1/2 cup.

If nut butter is too thick, place in microwave for 10-15 second intervals. This will make it easier to combine with brownie batter.

Step 3: Serving Ideas

  • Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich 
  • Drizzle Caramel or Chocolate Sauce
  • Add Fresh Fruit on Top 
  • Utilize a Cookie Cutter for Fun Shape
