How can I add pizazz to my brownie recipe?

I like to make brownies out of the box -- like the Betty Crocker Brand that you add oil, water, and eggs to. But I also want to change it up a bit for a new twist. Does anyone know of any add-ins that taste great with brownies?

For example, adding vanilla or cinnamon to the recipe?

I really appreciate the help!How can I add pizazz to my brownie recipe?
Really any topping it's up to you.

I live for caramel so I love putting that on.

Maybe sprinkles or adding vanilla.

Frosting or something really it's up to you.

Hope they come out great :)

Hope I helped

I always add nuts to my brownies. You can vary the kinds of nuts you use for different flavors - same with adding things like chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, even some shredded coconut. A little coffee in the recipe in place of some of the water would add another dimension to the flavor.

One thing I do with my boxed cake mixes is take a box of Cook %26amp; Serve pudding that matches with the flavor of the boxed cake mix - for instance, chocolate cake and chocolate cook and serve pudding or even coconut cream cook %26amp; serve pudding with the chocolate cake. It MUST be Cook %26amp; Serve - not instant. Anyway, you make the pudding by the package directions, and as soon as it's boiling and thickened, you pour it into your dry cake mix (in your case the dry brownie mix) and stir well. Pour into a sprayed cake pan - you don't add the eggs, oil, OR water - just the pudding. Once it's in the pan, sprinkle with 1/2 c mini chocolate morsels (the normal sized don't melt in time) and 1/2 cup chopped nuts. The mini morsels melt and become the frosting over the mix - it makes a very moist and nice cake - would do the same for your brownies. Definitely not cake-like.

I've even had brownies with dollops of cream cheese in them - very good!

Adding vanilla won't really do anything, but you can intensify the flavor by adding some instant coffee to the batter! You can also add chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch or whatever chips - or nuts.... Or you can beat a package of softened cream cheese, with an egg and a little vanilla and marble it through the uncooked batter ..... top with frosting or glaze afterwards ..... top the HOT brownies with miniature marshmellows and swirl them over the top as they melt. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the marshmellows
Add vanilla. You can also experiment with cinnamon but adding that and almonds. You should also try chocolate chunks too or a splash of baileys irish cream in the batter.

You know those sheets of caramel they sell for caramel apples? Get those.

Pour half of the batter and then line up the sheets on top and pour the other half in. Yummm :) it's so good!
Add a couple teaspoons of instant coffee, some of those small (mini) chocolate chips and then bake. When they come out and cool, then drizzle them with melted white chocolate. They're yummy.
Add a tablespoon or 2 of prepared coffee and a handful of toasted coconut.
Add peppermint flavoring to the mix and after baking top with Andes Candies.MMM!! My family loves them this way.
Use a flavored hot cocoa mix. I have some butterfinger stuff. just add it in, should be ok. one single package.
some peanut butter is awesome
