Let’s talk about siblings… how many do you have? I have a younger brother, Matthew (well, Matt) 🙂 While we didn’t exactly get along growing up (okay let’s face it, I picked on him lol), now that we’re both adults, we get along great! Love you little bro! We share a lot together, a love for music and movies, as well as having a serious movie-quote arsenal. There are certain movies that I swear we can quote the whole thing, word for word 🙂 In fact, I think it’s almost time for another movie marathon day!
We both like to eat… um, a lot. One thing I learned a long time ago was not to split a dessert with him… you’ll get about 2 bites before he’s inhaled the whole thing 😉 So I decided to make a dessert all for him. Well, not really all for him… but it makes enough that there will be plenty to go around. No fighting necessary! He works hard, and is always there to help out everyone, so he deserves a treat!
Instead of just making regular brownies… I added a secret ingredient. Not really a secret anymore since I’m sharing it, but it’s one you may not have expected. Coca-Cola. Yep, the drink 🙂
How much do you all love the personalized Coke bottles? They’re awesome!
Making these brownies is not challenging at all, in fact, it starts with a boxed brownie mix.
Just add your box of fudge brownie mix to your mixer bowl, then add in vegetable oil, egg, coca cola, and buttermilk. Mix with the paddle attachment to combine thoroughly, but don’t over mix.
Pour batter into a greased 9×13″ baking pan and bake for about 25 minutes, or until set and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely.
What sundae is complete without a fantastic sauce? I chose to make a coca-cola chocolate sauce to really bring that coke flavor home 🙂 I followed the formula from my Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey’s Chocolate Drizzle, and swapped out the ingredients a little.
Combine all your ingredients except chocolate chips, whisk, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.
Now let’s build those amazing brownie sundaes! Start with a thick, fudgy brownie on the bottom, topped with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, drizzle it all liberally with the coca cola chocolate sauce and finish it with a cherry (or two)!
These are brownie sundaes that you definitely will want to have again!

- 1 box of fudge brownie mix I used Duncan Hines
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup coca cola
- cup scant 1/2 buttermilk
- Coca Cola Chocolate Sauce:
- 1/2 cup coca cola
- cup ¼ cocoa powder
- cup ¼ light corn syrup
- cup ⅓ semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking pan and set aside.
To the bowl of a stand mixer, add the brownie mix, vegetable oil, egg, coca cola and buttermilk. Using the paddle attachment, beat until thoroughly combined.
Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Cool brownies on a cooling rack, in the pan, completely.
Coca Cola Chocolate Sauce:
Combine coca cola, cocoa powder and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, whisk and bring to a slight boil. Once it boils, reduce heat and simmer on low for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.
** Can also be done using a hand mixer, or even by hand with a whisk.
** Serve brownies by themselves, drizzled with chocolate sauce, or combined with ice cream to make a sundae.
