If you love baking chocolate desserts, then brownies must be some of your favorites, especially the ones prepared according to a Betty Crocker recipe.

How to Make a Double Batch of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies?
Usually, when you make brownies from scratch, doubling the batch would be quite complicated since you need to calculate the ingredients carefully. However, with boxed mixtures this can be quite an easy task, you just have to follow the instructions precisely. When it comes to baking Betty Crocker Fudge brownies it is even easier since they come out with clear instructions that are easy to follow.
Therefore, the first thing you need to provide is two packages of Betty Crocker brownie mix. However, make sure that the mixtures are of the same kind since it is not recommended to mix two different types, although they come from the same brand. After that, you will need to ensure that you have utensils big enough that will fit two brownie mixtures.
If your utensils are not suitable, you will not be able to work properly, meaning that you may just ruin all of your ingredients without any result. To make this possible, you should either find a pan that will have room for two mixtures, or you could use two regular pans that you usually use for making the brownie batter. Once you make sure that you have everything ready, you might proceed to read and follow the instructions given on the box of the brownie mixture.
Nonetheless, if you want to make sure that your brownies will be really fudgy, you might want to use some additional ingredients that will improve the taste and look of your sweet baked goods. This does not mean that you will alternate the recipe, but you will add a little bit more of the already given ingredients, so your brownies will turn out quite fudgy, as you expect.
Below, I have provided some tips that will help you obtain the wanted fudginess in your Betty Crocker brownies.
Aim For A Better Cohesion
Cohesion is everything when it comes to obtaining fudgy brownies. In order to achieve cohesive batter for your brownies, you should add more eggs than recommended on the package. Therefore, when the recipe calls for two eggs, you should opt for two more, so you will add richness to your brownies without making them greasy.
Improve The Taste
You may notice that although the Betty Crocker mixture is quite good, i.e. results in delicious brownies, you will need something that will enhance the flavors of your brownies. To make sure that you achieve the richness of the brownies you desire, you should add melted bittersweet chocolate. Additional chocolate in the mixture will enhance the chocolate flavor, and the batter will become creamier.
Add Oil Along With Water
Usually, Betty Crocker recipes require oil or water; however, you should opt for both in order to achieve a better quality of the batter. Oil is responsible for the end result, i.e. for obtaining the fudginess in the brownies.
Once you add these additional ingredients, you may proceed to follow the rest of the instructions as given in the recipe. These tips are proven to work, so you will never regret trying some or all of them.

Make sure that you follow the instructions, and you will be one step from getting your perfect snack.
The thing with Betty Crocker cookie brownies is that you will have to do everything in the same way as you do with regular brownies, but you will have to bake the brownies in two separate pans or put the mixture in the larger pan.
Usually, when you bake one mixture, you use an 8-inch square pan. If you opt for a double batch, you should use a 9-inch by 13-inch rectangular pan. Baking time is a little bit longer, about 40 minutes.
You can add more eggs and oil for reaching the wanted richness and improvement of the flavors. You will also need some flour because we are talking about a firmer structure of baked goods. In addition, you might use a little bit of vanilla extract, to obtain the ultimate taste of your cookies.
In order to get a clearer idea of how the process should look like, I have listed the steps below.
- Add the brownie mixtures into a large bowl, or two regular brownie bowls.
- Add eggs and oil to the mixture. If you want the ultimate richness of the batter, you can add a little bit of water as well.
- Add flour and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix everything together until you get the perfect blend and texture to work with.

The process is simple and easy, and they should be ready in around half an hour. However, make sure that you monitor your cookies all the time while they are being baked since you do not want to burn them.
