  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  1. I’m following the scratch recipe verbatim but with diet Dr Pepper. It was super foamy initially (from the sugar and aspartame, I guess). We’ll see how they bake up.
    I think my pan is only 8×8… but I’m excited for results and will follow up. 🙂

  2. Made these for my sons birthday (Dr Pepper is and has always been his favorite drink), but made them with special dark cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips along with some chopped pecans. They were the absolute best and easiest brownies we’ve ever had. I would leave the nuts out from now on but what was so good about them was when we had one with van ice creM and a drizzle of chocolate syrup, the flavor was not so icky sweet as regular brownies. It was wonderful!!

  3. Please discard the review I wrote. I was looking at one recipie and wrote about yours. Tahnk you and I am very sorry for the mix up.

  4. 5 stars
    Oh my! Made these and they were gone the next day. So from the start I messed up the recipie. I melted two sticks of butter. I don’t know where I got that from. So I did not add the 3 Tablespoons of oil. Then I used dark chocloate cocoa powder. I didn’t even notice that until the nest day! The dash of cinnamon is what distacted me. It just adds wonderful flavor. Mu husband even commented on the flavor. Will make again!

  5. I made the Dr Pepper brownies, but they didn’t look anything like yours. The consistency looked different too.  The recipe only has the Dr Pepper for liquid? Just to confirm it called for 2/3 cup of cocoa? It was very spongee (if that is a word)
    Just curious if I did something wrong?

  6. If you’re using the boxed brownie mix; you don’t have to add anything but the Dr Pepper and the chocolate chips. This would be a lower calorie recipe and you can actually use any flavor of soda pop you want it like orange crush cherry for instants. Use a diet soda for less calories.  Ie diet cherry dip raspberry soda

      Pam… when you use the box mix did you change how much Dr Pepper you put in
