Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Can I Make Ghirardelli Brownies in a 9×13 Pan? 

Yes! You can, but you will need to make a double batch OR expect thin brownies. Either way works! It’s really best to use a 9×9 pan. 

How Long Do You Bake Ghirardelli Brownies in a 9×13 Pan?

Bake these brownies in a 9×13 pan for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick or cake pick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

How To Make Ghirardelli Brownies Better.

Honestly, these are the best and it is near impossible to make them BETTER!

HOWEVER, if you have a DEEP 9×9 pan, make a double batch in the 9×9 pan. It makes the thickest and most delicious chocolatey brownies you EVER tasted!

Do not forget to add the semi-sweet chocolate chips that are included in the mix!

 We love to occasionally add icing and/or candies to the top! That does make it slightly better!

How Long Do I Bake a 2 Boxes of Ghirardelli Brownies?

Bake a double mix of 2 boxes of Ghirardelli Brownies 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

How Many Eggs Do I Add to Ghirardelli Brownie Mix? 

You will be adding one egg to the mix, unless you are making a double batch or if you are making cookies from the mix. Then it will be more. You can mix the whole thing in a medium bowl unless making a double batch, then use a large bowl.

How To Make Cookies from the Ghirardelli Mix. 

To make cookies, 

  • In a bowl, mix together the mix, 3 Tbsp all purpose flour, 2 eggs, ⅓ Cup vegetable oil and 1 Cup chocolate chips or butterscotch chips. 
  • Spoon out by even spoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. 

How Can I Tell if My Ghirardelli Brownie Mix Recipe is Done? 

The best way is to know that the whole pan has turned into a brownie from the batter you placed in the oven.

Use a toothpick, stick it into the center of the pan and pull it back out. If you see brownie batter sticking to the toothpick anywhere, then you know it isn’t baked all the way through. 

When the toothpick comes out clean, then you’ll know that the whole thing is baked all the way through. 

If My Brownies Aren’t Done, Can I Put Them Back In The Oven? 

Yes, just push the whole pan right back into the oven and wait for another 3-5 minutes and check again. Patience is a virtue! 

Which Is The Best Ghirardelli Brownie Mix?

Our family likes either the double or the triple chocolate mix! There are small pieces of chocolate in the batter that just takes it over the top! 

Can I Make My Ghirardelli Brownies More Cakey? 

Yes! Adding another egg will make the whole batch cakey instead of so chewy. This is true of most recipes. 

How Can I Keep My Brownies From Getting Hard Over Night? 

If your brownies get hard overnight, it is because they dried out in the air. Make sure to cover the pan very well using either plastic wrap or aluminum foil and cover tightly.

Conversely, you can put your brownies in a resealable bag or in gladware/tupperware with a tight fitting lid. 

Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Do I Need To Cover My Brownies with Foil While Cooking? 

No, you do not need to cover your brownies with foil while cooking.

I needed to read this one today.

James 1: 13-14

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
