Pastry Chef Reviews Boxed Brownie Mix

published on July 2, 2020

– I think I'm actually the
clear winner here because,

who gets to just sit around eating

brownies all day?

Hey everyone, my name is Breana,

and I'm a pastry chef in LA,

I've worked at places, from Bottega Louie

and Jon and Vinny's

And I also own my own catering company,

called Sugar and Spice, baked by Bre

And today, I am here to review

box brownie mix,

to see how it stands up

(upbeat music)

When I eat a brownie,

I want it to have that nice,

crackly, crumbly top,

fudgy in the middle,

melts in your mouth

And I'm gonna use the M word,

it has to be moist

I'm going to start with Annie's

Based on the box, I had
very low expectations

Because, the one on the
box did not look like this

So I'm pleasantly surprised


Give you the nice gooey texture

I can see the little tiny chocolate chips

that they have in here

It doesn't really give
me that fudgy taste

Someone only used half the amount

of sugar they should've used,

and a quarter of the coco

Next up, Mr Doughboy himself, Pillsbury

It has that nice little crackle on top,

we've even got some weird
little bubbles that happened

This piece has exactly what I want,

that nice fudgy center

Nice cakey bottom

This has more cocoa flavor,

not quite a ton, but just enough

It's kind of cakey

Mr Doughboy kinda did his thing

I'm really loving that
I have this crackly top

Doughboy, you're doing good

I'm ready to move on to

my best friend in my head,

Ms Betty Crocker

I don't have that fudgy
center that I would like

I do see a little bit of goo, the good goo

in the middle

And it's clearly gooey
enough to fall apart

It looks very cakey,

more cakey than fudgy

(upbeat piano plays)

Maybe not?

That's got a great bite

I get some cocoa flavor,

but not too overpowering

But it's also not super cakey,

Ms Betty deceives me with these looks

I like it

I get the crust, I get the moistness,

it's not super fudgy

Ms Betty put her foot in this one,

this is a good one here

I'd buy it

Is Duncan Hines a person?

Regardless, whoever is
responsible for this,

I just wanna,

you did good

It had the perfect crackly topping

It may not be good for
your skin, but it's good

in a brownie to see ashy
cracks and crumbles

Then the inside is and moisturized,

this clearly had a lot of lotion

I hate to say it, but it's perfect

The dark chocolate here,

it gives me that slap,
that punch in the face

that I want

It's really well balanced

These are the perfect fudgy texture

On to the next one

We have Ghirardelli

It was the self proclaimed
premium brownie mix

I hope that they deliver

On appearance alone, it looks amazing

It's dark chocolate,

so I know I'm gonna get
that chocolate flavor

I'm still chewing, so that's a great sign

It's fudgy, it's gooey

I love that they had those huge

chocolate chips in here

I get that crackly top

And, although it fell apart
into a million pieces,

it's delicious

It's smooth, although
it's super chewy because

of how fudgy it is

It kind of is silky on the tongue

at the same time,

kind of like a cheesecake

I'm happy with it

After more brownies than

I care to divulge and tell you I ate,

I'm finally ready to pick a winner

And Duncan Hines

takes the brownie cake on this one

It was everything I wanted,

it had the moistness,

it had the flavor,

it had the crackly, crunchiness on top

It is the supreme premium brownie mix

I think it should take that title

If you don't wanna use box mix

and make them from scratch,

I highly suggest finding a recipe where

you melt your chocolate,

with your butter,

and then also add in
some instant espresso

It'll really heighten that cocoa flavor

and just give you a nice little punch

I'm going to go make a brownie blanket,

and take a nice long nap

(upbeat music)
