Toffee Brownies {4-Ingredients}


Have you ever had a brownie craving, but missing ingredients to make them and only cake mix on hand instead of brownie mix?  I think you’re going to love this recipe from Kim.  She uses a cake mix to make some deeply chocolate brownies that are studded with Heath toffee bits!

I love Heath candy bars and I love brownies, so it was only natural that I put the two together! Since I also adore quick and easy recipes, this dessert only requires 4 ingredients.

Toffee Brownie Ingredients EAH

If you are not a fan of toffee, you can easily substitute your favorite candy or chocolate chips. I’ve made these with mini peanut butter cups, Rolo candies, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips! What can I say, they are so easy to whip up, and there are so many possibilities!

Toffee Brownies EAHThey may not be the most photogenic dessert, but disappear quickly every time I make them! Also, this recipe contains no eggs, so it’s great for anyone with an egg allergy or who doesn’t eat eggs, and with so few ingredients it’s a great “first” recipe for kids. My children enjoy getting in the kitchen and baking up goodies, and this is the perfect rainy day activity (with the added bonus of getting my chocolate fix!)

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 1 box of instant chocolate pudding mix 4 serving size
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Heath Toffee Bits or desired candy/chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease/spray a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Whisk together until pudding begins to thicken.
  4. Add dry cake mix. Stir until combined.
  5. Spread batter into prepared baking dish.
  6. Top with toffee bits.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool - melted toffee is HOT!
  9. Cut into squares and serve.

*Note: I have vanilla pudding pictured with the ingredients, and chocolate pudding listed in the recipe. I usually use chocolate pudding, but you can substitute different flavors. You can also add additional chocolate chips or toffee bits to the batter if desired. You really can’t have too much chocolate in my opinion!

  1. These sound soooo good. I have been visiting the Heath toffee pieces every time I grocery shop but haven’t bought them yet. Now I can! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I made this with mini M & Ms (it’s what I had on hand) and I broke chocolate chip cookie dough pieces up & put that on top (I had bought some cookie dough & didn’t get around to making the cookies, and this just sounded like a better idea for cookie dough). Thanks for this recipe!

  3. Do you add eggs and oil to the cake mix?
