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! 

 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. 

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. 

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

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

SERIOUSLY? All you do is copy the recipe off the back of the box. Like, people are that stupid they need your instructions?? You're clogging up the internet.

@Wendi Spraker, What a jerk that person is. Thank you for posting! I put the bags of mix in freezer and do cut out the recipe; but I have misplaced the recipe. Thank you for thinking of me. LOL Sandy

Hi "Smarter than you", I'm so glad you left such a sweet comment. It goes right along with the recipe! No, absolutely not, people are not stupid. They are actually very smart. Most people who read this recipe are looking to see what is involved in making this kind of brownie so that they can make their grocery list or decide if the recipe will be something that they want to tackle. From your comment, I am surmising that you already know how to make brownies from a box and so I'm wondering how and why you clicked over to this recipe at all? I'm also wondering why you think that you are smarter than me? I fail to see how I am clogging the internet on a website that I pay for? Perhaps you can enlighten me? Oh wait, that's right, you are gone now and off trolling someone else's content leaving useless comments and clogging up the internet with that. Have a terrific day "Smarter than you".
