Brownie Brittle Recipe – from a box mix
When you make brownies, which do you prefer? The edges or the middle? I am all about those edges! While I do enjoy the middle pieces, if given a choice, I will always take the edges first.
I love brownies, but I especially love those crispy, delectable brownie edges. About a year ago, I tried brownie brittle from the store and instantly fell in love. If you haven’t tried it before, it’s a bag full of those excellent brownie edges, incredible, right!?!
Store-bought brownie brittle is expensive, so today I’m sharing my copycat Brownie Brittle Recipe with you that you can make for a fraction of the cost. It’s super easy to make and uses a box mix.
This Brownie Brittle Recipe will give you your brownie edge fix in every single bite!
Who makes Brownie Brittle?
Brownie Brittle was first created by Sheila G. Mains in Florida. She was initially a brownie baker, beginning in 1992. She became so popular in fact that she purchased the phone number 1.800.Brownie. How awesome is that?!
How long does copycat Brownie Brittle last?
Brownie Brittle will remain fresh for up to one week if stored in an airtight container.
What does Brownie Brittle taste like?
Brownie Brittle is the best of both worlds. They are thin like a typical cookie and taste like a brownie. Say what?! It’s true. It’s the best of both worlds for those days when you just can’t decide what you are in the mood for.
Brownie Brillte Ingredients & Kitchen Tools:
- BROWNIE MIX – I recommend Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix (18-ounce package)
- VEGETABLE OIL
- OFFSET SPATULA
- BAKING SHEET
- PARCHMENT PAPER
How to make Brownie Brittle:
1: Prepare the baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2: Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
3: Use a whisk to mix until just combined.
4: Pour the batter onto the prepared baking sheet.
5: Using an offset spatula, spread the batter into a thin layer, as thin as you can get it.
6: Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely and then either break apart with a knife or cut into pieces using a pizza cutter.
- If you want the brittle in uniform pieces like mine, then you need to score the brittle with the pizza cutter as soon as it comes out of the oven. Once it’s cooled, break it apart entirely by cutting it with the pizza cutter.

Are the water/oil/egg amounts the same as the boxdirections? If I use a different mix, can I use the items/amounts from the box?

How long the BROWNIE BRITTLE will last if keep in tight container?
It will last for up to a week in an airtight container.
Great flavor, but because next time I’ll put it on two sheets so I can get them thinner, and maybe a teeny bit more liquid. More like really thin brownies.
Great recipe! If you use egg whites instead of the whole egg, and spread it very thin, they’re so crispy and perfect!
Hi Kimberlee, how many egg whites did you use for this recipe to get the brittle crispy?
Amazing how little you need to make this delicious brittle. It certainly looks incredibly inviting!
Made this recipe with the kids this week. We had great fun and everyone loved the flavors.
I’m so glad this recipe was a hit!

Have you tried making a copycat recipe for the Gingerbread flavor?
I haven’t, I’ll have to work on that one!.
I like it better than biscotti. I didn’t spray my parchment paper though; it’s not necessary.
