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)!

Author: The Chunky Chef
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking pan and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  4. Cool brownies on a cooling rack, in the pan, completely.
  5. Coca Cola Chocolate Sauce:
  6. 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.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.
Recipe Notes

** 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.

  1. I’m a HUGE fan of Coca-Cola. I LOVE brownies, which happens to be my favorite dessert EVER. Coca-Cola and brownies are a match made in heaven. As soon as I move into my new place (which won’t be until next month), I’m going to make a batch of these brownies. 🙂

  2. I’m going to try it with root beer. Let u know how it turns out.

  3. Congratulations! Your Coca Cola Brownies have been featured at Moore or Less Cooking Food Blog.

  5. Wow this is so cool! I would have never thought to add Coca-Cola in a dessert! So cool! Must try this at home 😀

  6. This is an absolutely gorgeous cake.

  7. Hello beautiful! This looks so amazing. Pinned and tweeted. I hope to see you on Monday at 7pm because we love to party with you! Happy Memorial Day! Lou Lou Girls

  8. What a yummy treat! I’ve never cooked with Coke…I think I may have to start!

  9. YUM! Thank you so much for linking up at Tasty Tuesday! Your recipe has been pinned to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board! Please join us again this week!

  10. Quick and easy AND it’s a brownie? Goodness what a treat! I’ll need to try this one as soon as summer rolls around because my dad’s obsessed with cola and we always have boxes! So until then I will wait in anticipation and just marvel at your gorgeous photos and be envious of you heheh. Happy FF!

    • Thank you so much Cynthia!! Any easy dessert is a win in my book, and brownies… whew… I just love them. Too much. LOL. As soon as I was done taking those photos I sat down and devoured that whole dish 😀 I hope you and your Dad LOVE these!! Happy FF to you too, enjoy your weekend 😀

  11. We are 8 as children and I am the eldest. 😐
    It’s been a year and a half since I stopped drinking Cola (and other soft drinks). Um, I sipped and I mean very little. I loved Coca Cola, too. I haven’t tried cooking/baking with it, though. And this amazes me – very enticing dessert. Thanks for co-hosting, Amanda. Happy FF.

    • Thank you Jhuls!! Ohhhh wow, 8… what a big family 😀 You know, I stopped drinking it for the most part as well… I realized about a year ago that I was drinking wayyyyy more pop than I was water, and once I stopped, I felt so much better! I still crave my coke though, so I indulge once in a while 🙂 It was such a fun recipe to create and of course, eat 😉 Happy FF to you as well!!

  12. What a great recipe! So beautiful, and I’m glad you get along so well with your brother. My relationship with my sister is one of my favorite things I have going. In other news, when I search for my name on the Coca Cola Website, it always replies: “Looks like your name isn’t in stores. On the upside, you must have a really unique name.” Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    • Thank you so much Kaila!! Glad to hear you and your sister have a great relationship 🙂 Family is just awesome! Lol, I guess there’s pluses and minuses to unique names! Enjoy your weekend as well 🙂

  13. I have a number of recipes using soft drinks but not a brownie one! Thanks Amanda and Happy Fiesta Friday #69 🙂

  14. Where is the link to your Coca Cola sauce? This sounds delicious!

  15. This looks absolutely amazing! Yum!! Thanks for sharing! Pinning for later. Stopping over from Thursday Favorite Things 🙂

  16. This looks delectable! I can’t wait to try this at home. Soda and brownies… Win/win!

  17. Coca cola brownies are such a popular Southern dessert! They are one of my favs!

  23. This is so great! I’m not a big Coke drinker, but I LOVE cooking with it 😀 That chocolate sauce has my name all over it! Definitely sharing this!

    • Ahhh thank you Dini!! I used to be a BIG coke drinker, and now I mainly cook with it, and I do crave it on occasion. Oh that sauce, *might* have been drizzled over some other things… it’s too good to not eat 😉
