These are excellent. I have made them 4 times and had success 3 times. DO NOT USE A GLASS PAN. They did not cook through all the way and were very bad. I used a metal 9X11 pan the next 3 times and they turned out perfect. Very moist and chocolately.

This didn't work for me at all, it was very hard to get out of the pan and very sugar gritty and greasy. The only thing I can think of is maybe the chocolate cake mix is supposed to be prepared according to the box with the eggs and milk? If so the recipe should have stated that, it just says add the cake mix????? I might try it again and will add to my review. Seems everyone else likes them so there must be something to it.

OMG!! I have made these about 1000 times. Actually am making them again tonight. This is absolutely excellent and my hubbys friends and coworkers ask for these all the time. All I have to say is DO AS INSTRUCTED! (Although I do have to say I put more batter on the bottom of the pan than top, seems to work out better)Do not make the cake mix (as on the back of the box) Do exactly as the instructions say to do in THIS recipe and it will turn out perfectly!! The only thing I would change is: if your husband KNOWS you are making these: HIDE THEM!!

These brownies are AMAZING. I've made them 5 times since I discovered the recipe here and they just get better. Once I was forced to use caramel syrup and it was just as good, as well as a nice time saver. I always use Devil's Food and milk chocolate chips, it's important to put the remainder of the batter in the fridge while the first layer cooks--it's much easier to work w/ when it's cooler.

I accidentally made this recipe with sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated milk and they were fabulous - the only way my husband will eat them.

I normally avoid recipes with packaged cake mixes, but you will NEVER know that one was used in this recipe. These were the best brownies I've ever made. I wondered if I was missing a liquid ingredient while mixing the batter, but the directions are correct. The batter is very thick and hard to stir, but that the way it is supposed to be. We had so many Christmas treats at work this year, but this was the most popular. The brownies are gooey. Don't cut them until they have completely cooled. I made them at night and cut them the next morning. If I had to describe these brownies in one word, it would be "decadent."

I had issues also!:( It exploded in the oven. Is the cake mix suppose to be mixed up like the directions on the back of the cake mix box...or no?

These were delicious. Make sure u stir your batter long enough for it to become totally "wet" to avoid grainy brownies that some have complained about. These will probably be the best brownies you ever taste, espeically if you like Turtle.
