Is there anything better than biting into a rich and fudgy brownie? Not much in my book! Over the years I’ve learned that not all brownie recipes are created equally.

I love this brownie recipe without cocoa powder, and ever since I created it, I’ve been on the hunt for another variation that’s even more chocolatey.

I’ve found it with these condensed milk brownies!

When I tell you they’re dense and rich, it’s no joke. They are so decadent — I love what the addition of condensed milk does for the texture and thickness of the batter.

  • Instructions on how to prep, mix, and bake your condensed milk brownie batter so that you get ooey-gooey results every time.

STEP FIVE: Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the center is set and not jiggly, and the top is no longer glossy. Allow your brownies to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

Can You Use Condensed Milk In Baking?

Absolutely! Adding condensed milk to baked goods will make the final results gooey, thick, dense, and moist. It will also add a nice color.

I personally lean toward Eagle brand for condensed milk brownies. It’s a brand I trust and love.

One thing to note with this recipe is that leftovers (if you have them!) are best kept in an airtight container in the fridge. This dessert will keep for 4-5 days when chilled!

How Do You Make Moist Brownies?

The secret to supremely moist brownies is in the ingredients that you use! That’s why I love adding condensed milk to the batter.

You’ll get moist and dense results every time, especially when compared to recipes that use water instead. 

What To Add To Brownies To Make Them Better?

Start with using condensed milk instead of water. The extra chocolate chips in this recipe also make them even more flavorful!

The vanilla and brown sugar also add so much. I also know some bakers that add a touch of coffee to the mix.

It’s not listed in my recipe, as I find that my condensed milk brownies are delicious without it, but it’s worth a try!

What Makes Better Brownies, Butter or Oil?

I definitely recommend using butter instead of oil for this recipe. I find that it works perfectly with my Eagle brand condensed milk brownies! 

It tastes better and also complements the chocolate and condensed milk flavors wonderfully.

You may opt for oil if you want the outside and edges to be crunchy instead of having fudgy results.

It’s all about taste and texture preferences, but I do recommend sticking with butter for my recipe.

My condensed milk brownies are dense, fudgy, and oh-so chocolatey. Crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside, thanks to the thick milk!

4 thoughts on “Condensed Milk Brownies”

  1. Is it necessary to include the 1/4 cup brown sugar called for in the recipe? Condensed milk is already very sweet ad it is. Thank you.


    • Hi,
      Most likely your batter was overmixed slightly, which caused air into the batter and gave it the souffle like texture you are referring to.
