Buddy Valastro's Favorite Ingredients To Amp Up Box Brownie Mix

As easy, convenient, and delicious box brownie mixes are, they can get dull very quickly, but chef Buddy Valastro's has ingredients you could add to jazz up a box of brownie mix.

Valastro's favorites are a mix of frozen fruits, nuts, and chocolate. The Cake Boss recommends using frozen cherries, toasted coconut, and macadamia nuts.

He also suggests a handful of chocolate chips, either milk, white, or dark. Using these ingredients turns box brownies into more refined desserts with deeper flavors.

While Valastro's ingredients upgrade box brownie mixes, you don't have to stop there. There are more ways to boost brownies by playing around with the liquids and fats.
