What goes into this Recipe

Ingredients needed to make condensed milk bronies.
  • Fudge Brownie Mix: I prefer the Betty Crocker mix but any brand will work. If you have a homemade brownies recipe that you love you could also try adding a can of Eagle Brand milk to it.
  • Brewed Coffee: Added to help enhance the flavor of the chocolate. It is also added to this Mini Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: This is the magical key ingredient and helps to give the brownies an out of this world flavor and fudge like texture.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: The semi-sweet chips help to add more taste and texture to the perfect brownie recipe. White Chocolate Chips, dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips would also be wonderful. You could even add 2 different chips for triple chocolate brownies.
  • Flaky Sea Salt: It is optional but I highly recommend it. The sweet and salty combination is amazing. If you don’t have flaky sea salt go ahead and use kosher salt.

Add-In ideas

Cookies- Add a layer of store bought cookies like Oreos, shortbread, Chips Ahoy, Teddy Grahams or Nutter Butter cookies {see this Nutter Butter Brownie recipe}.

Candy- Coarsely chop your favorite candy and add to the top of the batter before baking. Snickers bars, Kit Kat, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Twix, M&M’s and Peppermint patties would all be a wonderful addition.

Frosting- Top with chocolate, vanilla, cream cheese or funfetti frosting.

Freeze Dried Fruit- Using freeze dried fruits like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and bananas would all be great and not add moisture. These Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies are a great example.

How to make Condensed Milk Brownies

1. Combine the brownie mix, condensed milk, eggs, coffee, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl.

2. Mix the ingredients by hand or with an electric mixer until you have a super thick batter.

Steps 1 and 2 of making condensed milk brownies. 1, combine the ingredients. 2, mix the ingredients.

3. Pour the chocolate mixture into a 9×9 inch pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and lined with parchment paper.

4. Bake brownies in a 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes.  The best way to tell that they are done baking is to insert a toothpick in the center of the brownies and remove from the oven when it is covered with moist crumbs.  You can also tell because they will have a crackly top. I love to sprinkle the top with flaky sea salt right when I pull them from the oven but that is optional. Allow them to cool before cutting into squares.

Expert Tips

  • Whisk the brownie mix before adding the wet ingredients. This simple step will ensure that there are fewer lumps in the batter.
  • Line the baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray. It will help you to easily remove the entire pan of condensed milk brownies in one piece.
  • Add chocolate chips to the top of the fudgy chocolate brownie batter in the pan. Some of the chips will sink to the bottom and some will stay on top and give each bite a bit of a crunch.
  • Turn the brownies once while baking. This will ensure that they are baked evenly.
  • Cut the cooled baked brownies with a plastic knife. A plastic knife is naturally nonstick and will give you nice and clean lines.

Storage and Freezing

Store- Store leftover condensed milk brownies in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Freeze- These fudgy brownies freeze well for up to 3 months as long as they are in an airtight container or in a freezer bag.

Recipe FAQs

How do I serve this easy Condensed Milk Brownies recipe?

While these chocolatey brownies are perfect on their own, they would also be wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Add some chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry for a brownie sundae.

Can I use sweetened condensed milk instead of milk?

Sweetened condensed milk can be substituted for whole milk in some recipes. With the amount of sugar in condensed milk it is not always advised.

In this recipe it helps to give you an extra special fudge brownie taste and texture.

What does sweetened condensed milk do?

It adds a creamy and sweet flavor to whatever you put it in and doesn’t have the excess moisture that you get from regular milk.

Is condensed milk the same as evaporated milk?

While both are shelf stable milk options, the flavor of each milk is very different. Condensed milk is sweet in flavor, while evaporated milk is unsweetened.
