Betty Crocker GF Brownies

Betty Crocker brownies

A crispy, chewy edge awaits you after a few minutes of mixing and a half hour of baking.  The new Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix actually surprised me.

I love my brownie recipe, and was pretty biased going in to this tasting.  I am happy to report that Betty surprised me.

As you can see from the picture (the top right corner is where the focus was, apparently), the brownies met the appearance factor with a nice crinkly top.

This brownie falls right in the middle of the cakey/fudgey spectrum.  You cannot label it either way, which is about where I like mine (in the middle to slightly fudgey).  Unlike the cookies (but like the yellow cake), there was no gritty texture at all.

I don’t know if you can get a sugar high, but you can definitely get a chocolate fix from these brownies.  They do not taste really sweet, but powerfully chocolatey (which I really liked), almost like a dark chocolate.  My little brother, Corey, said they had a “cocoa flavor, not a milk chocolate flavor.”

Corey also said “they taste like regular brownies.”  And isn’t that what we want?

Way to go, Betty Crocker!

    It’s good to know there are some good mixes out there! I’m glad Betty pulled though on this one. This sounds like my sort of brownie – I like ’em chocolaty. Thanks for the review!

    I tried these a few weeks back, and they certainly did pass the brownie test. Good and chewy on the edges, my favorite part!

    My wife makes these when I’m lucky. You described them right with the cakey/fudgey combination.
