Dr Pepper Brownies

As I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions, The Nerd is a *HUGE* fan of Dr Pepper.
And, I’ll admit, I like it, too.
So when I found this recipe for brownies made with the Nectar of the Gods, I *knew* this was something I needed to try.
These brownies are moist and chewy. The icing is divine.
You may need to pop them in the freezer or refrigerator for a bit to harden them up. Otherwise, they just fall apart when you cut them.
At least mine did.
And I was certainly ok with that. They were super-yummy.

Brownie Ingredients:
1 c butter
1 c Dr Pepper
2 c flour
2 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp cocoa
1/2 c buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat the butter and Dr Pepper until melted. Don’t boil it.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the buttermilk, baking soda and vanilla.
Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry mixture.
And stir together.
Add the Dr Pepper mixture and mix well.
Bake in a greased 18 x 12 inch baking dish for 25-30 minutes.
Don’t they look yummy?
But I think they need a little something else…
Icing Ingredients:
1/2 c butter
6 tbsp Dr Pepper
3 tbsp cocoa
1 lb powdered sugar
Bring the butter, Dr Pepper and cocoa to a boil.
Mix in the powdered sugar.
Pour over the cooled brownies and cut into squares to serve.
A splash of Dr Pepper makes these brownies moist and chewy. A dash of cinnamon makes them tasty and not-too-rich. Yum!

    Oh my word these look DELICIOUS!! I HAVE to try them! ^_^ Thank you so much for sharing. :)

    {PS} I tried the lasagna roll-ups! YUM-O!!!! I think they're going to be a new regular at our house.

  3. I MUST make these! Thank you for sharing.

    Since Hubby is obsessed with Dr. Pepper, but we're not allowing ourselves to drink sodas anymore, I think these would be a great treat!!! They look fantastic!

  5. Looks delicious!

    I wish we had Dr. Pepper in my country :(

    I'm not crazy about Dr. Pepper because of its medicinal taste, but these brownies look amazing. Maybe I could these out with Coke. YUM! Thank you!

  8. NikiTheo says:

    OMG, I want your whisk, where did you get that?!?!
    And I heart Cherry Dr. Pepper, I think I must try this…

  9. derweezy88 says:

    I wonder what sodas would and would not work for this. I may experiment with these!

  10. Jennifer says:

    Do you use cake flour or all purpose flour?

  11. Jennifer – I used All-purpose flour. :)

  12. did you have a problem with them not cooking right? Mine look like all the butter just cooked right out of the top

  13. made these just now. the cinnamon helps nix the stronger flavors in the brownies. mine came out uber dar in the batter, and the brownie mix rose a lot in baking. there was a ton of batter, so i used a 9×13 pan instead. the smell is delicious. next time ill dust the tops with a cinnamon and nutmeg mixture.
    serve with some egg nog and you have a perfect holiday treat.
    im thinking that you could add any small spice to turn this recipe from a fall to a christmas to a spring to a summer recipe.

  14. I’m sorry but this is NOT a brownie recipe. This is a cake recipe. I baked it in the size pan stated in the recipe (18″x 12″) for 20 minutes and it was about 1/2 an inch thick and slightly burnt tasting. I am a pretty experienced baker and I did think this looked suspiciously like a Texas Sheet Cake recipe (particularly considering the size of the pan, hello?) but I gave it the benefit of the doubt and went ahead and made it anyway. I am sorry I did. Might be okay (baked in a smaller pan) if cake is what you want but if you’re expecting brownies prepare to be disappointed.
