How To Make Dr Pepper Baked Beans
Step 1. Set the oven to 350 degrees. Add all the ingredients into a large bowl and combine until fully incorporated.
Step 2. Add the mixture into a large oven-safe skillet or in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Place into the oven for 2 hours depending on how you like your beans. If you want thick and stickier beans, keep them in for longer than 2 hours. If you like them saucier, keep them in for 1 1/2 hours or more until you reach your desired beans.
Step 3. Take them out of the oven and serve right away with any dinner or eat them by themselves..
