Loaded Holiday Cake Batter Brownies

Variations of the cake batter brownie or blondie have been circling around the interwebs as of late. Have you seen them? They are a brownie or a blondie made from a cake batter base and stuffed with all sorts of goodies. One of my favorite variations is here. Today I decided to put my own twist on the cake batter brownie. And they are delicious!


Let me tell you these things are everything you want in a brownie: gooey, dense, fudgey, and loaded with goodies!


To get in the holiday spirit, I added white chocolate covered pretzels and white chocolate covered Oreos. They dress up these brownies nicely and add a nice crunch. I also love the salty/sweet flavor from the pretzels.


This recipe is easy peasy, and only requires ONE BOWL!

Loaded Holiday Cake Batter Brownies


A box of chocolate cake mix

¼ cup of canola oil

1/3 cup of milk

1 egg, beaten

1 – 1 ½ cups chopped white chocolate covered pretzels

8-10 white chopped chocolate covered Oreos


Preheat oven to 350 and spray and grease or butter an 8×8 inch pan.

Stir cake mix, canola oil, milk, and egg in a large bowl until just combined.

Add your pretzels and Oreos.

Put brownie mixture into your prepared pan and bake for 20-22 minutes.

Allow brownies to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
