I’m excited to share these easy and yummy Salty Nougat Fudge Brownies with you!! Now the Mr. absolutely loves brownies! Dark chewy fudgy brownies!! I have for you today these amazing brownies that started with a mix!! I usually start with a mix and bump it up a notch and today’s recipe is no exception!!
I used my favorite boxed brownie mix! Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie mix the family size and I baked in a 9″x9″ pan!! Normally I just follow the directions on the back of the package but this time I made a few substitutions simply because I had them on hand and I have to tell you I loved the results!!
Now when you buy buttermilk you have to buy a huge container and seriously you will never use the whole thing and I have yet to find anyone who actually drinks the stuff!! So I decided to replace the water in the mix with my over abundance of buttermilk!! I also swapped out 1/3 cup of oil for 1/3 cup of melted butter!! These small changes made such a difference for me it was amazing!! The brownies were moist and chewy and baked up so nicely!
The addition of chopped peanuts, snickers bars and milk chocolate chips sent these brownies over the top!!
