Ooey-Gooey Butter Brownies

Oh! Hello, there! I am in love with these Ooey-Gooey Butter Brownies! They are pretty much everything a brownie should be… rich, dense, fudgy and amazing! These brownies are really easy to make and what I like to call “almost homemade” because you use a chocolate cake mix as part of the recipe. Don’t let the cake mix fool you though, you will NEVER know that these weren’t made 100% from scratch!

This recipe is from another Ehow.com video shoot featuring my friend Kendall!
The video for this recipe is posted below! Be sure to check it out!

Ooey-Gooey Butter Brownies


  • 2 sticks of butter used separately (melted)
  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (80z) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 (16 ox) box of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of nuts or chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 if using a glass or dark pan)
  2. Lightly spray a 9X13 inch pan with non-stick spray (I like to use non-stick foil or parchment paper to remove the brownies easier)
  3. In a large bowl: combine cake mix, 1 stick of melted butter, and 1 egg until combined
  4. Press mixture into 9×13 pan and set aside
  5. In another large bowl beat softened cream cheese until smooth
  6. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and cocoa powder
  7. Lower the speed of the mixer and add the powdered sugar, mix until combined
  8. Slowly add in 1 stick of melted butter and vanilla, beat until smooth
  9. Stir in Chocolate Chips (or nuts)
  10. Spread mixture over cake layer
  11. Bake for 30-40 minutes (do not over bake). The center should be a little gooey after baking
  12. Let the brownies cool partially before cutting them into squares
  13. Serve with ice cream while warm? Mmmm……

Bake for 30-40 minutes!  Make sure the top is still “gooey” when you take them out of the oven!
