If there’s one thing I in this world, its brownies! S’mores Brownies, Fudgy Caramel Brownies, Flourless Brownies, you name it! You would think there couldn’t possibly be anymore variations of the humble brownie. Wrong! Introducing Condensed Milk Brownies. Super chewy, fudgy and dense chocolate brownies using condensed milk as the base.
Brownie lovers rejoice!
I discovered this recipe in a Coles recipe magazine and just had to give them a try. The idea of using condensed milk as the base of the liquid and sweetness aspect of these brownies was just too interesting to pass up.
Boy am I glad I tried these.
The brownies themselves are insanely easy to make. A saucepan, a stove top and a 9×13 baking pan is all you need. Melt the butter and condensed milk together. Add in the vanilla and brown sugar. Add in your dry ingredients of coca, flour and baking powder and then bake! Optional add in is the white chocolate chips!
So quick and easy and no eggs or melted chocolate is needed.
The condensed milk and brown sugar give these brownies an amazing chewy texture while the lack of eggs ensure these brownies remain dense and fudgy.
I personally like consuming these from the fridge for add chew and fudge texture.
Because condensed milk is so rich and thick and sticky, we don’t need the melted chocolate for richness. The condensed milk and cocoa carry that just fine.
I hope you like today’s recipe and I truly hope you give these brownies a go. Remember to rate and report back your results in the comments below. I love reading your comments! Also #lightscamerabake on Instagram for a chance to be featured!

This is the perfect brownie recipe. I skipped the white chocolate because I am just not a white chocolate fan, and did powdered sugar. Im going to study this to memory so I don’t ever lose it. Thank you I’ve searched years for the perfect brownie!!!!’
That’s great to hear!
Okay , I’m normally not the type of person to leave a review under recipes, but I had to say: OH! MY! GOD! These are AMAZING. Super chewy and perfectly chocolately. It was a win for the whole family! Definitely would make again 💜💜
Thank you so much for the kind comment!
These brownies were the chewiness and density I was hoping for. I received brownies from Cheryl’s that were nice and dense and I’ve been trying to emulate them since. However, they barely tasted chocolatey to me. Did anyone else experience that? I think I’m going to double the cocoa and lower the flour a bit and see what happens.
There is barely any cocoa in these brownies. Did you calculate wrong or forget melted chocolate?
Hi, no that is the correct amount of cocoa. If you would like a richer brownie you could use a darker blend cocoa powder
At what temperature and time the brownies need to be baked after pre heating?
They need to be baked at 180C (350F) for around 25-30 minutes depending on your oven.
Easy to make and absolutely delicious!
I’m glad you like them 😊
Is the oven 180°C normal or fan assist?? Can’t wait to make these 🤗🥰
Normal so fan assisted would be 160°C. Enjoy!
They are lighter in colour than most brownies I have made. They are now cooking in the counter waiting patiently to be tested!
You’ll love them!
Is the butter unsalted or salted?
Salted. You can use unsalted as long as you add a pinch of salt to the recipe
My brownies sunk in the middle 🙁 what did I do wrong?
I’m sorry that happened. There could be a number of reasons. Did you add the baking powder and did you bake them long enough?
I did 30 mins in the oven but they are quite gooey so maybe could have done with a bit longer. They came out looking great but sadly deflated in the middle! Still taste lovely tho x
That may have been the problem but I’m glad they still taste good!
I only have a single can 400gms of condensed milk. What proportions should i use for this recipe accordingly?
To make the recipe with one tin, halve all the other ingredients and bake in an 8″x8″ baking pan or a 9″x9″ baking pan.
Hmmm I tried using two 8×8 and spreading it out but they are too thin
I love a chewy brownie and cannot wait to make these! Am I reading the temperature right, 180*? Thank you!
Yes that’s right. 180°C or 350°F. Enjoy! 🙂
Delicious and simple! Thanks for posting!
Thank you 🙂
Wow as in 2 cans of 14 oz condensed milk? Is this a very sweet brownie? I will try this in a few days
I know it seems like a lot but they really aren’t too sweet! It’s just really fudgy. You could halve the recipe for a smaller baking pan too
Straight from the oven to the fridge or cool to room temp first?
I would cool to room temperature first or at least 10-15 minutes before transferring to the fridge
No eggs needed! The condensed milk makes these fudgy
I am assuming you mean sweetened condensed milk like Eagle Brand milk since the recipe has no sugar. Regular condensed milk is like Pet milk with no sugar so am I right that it is sweetened condensed milk /
Yes it is sweetened. Thank you for noticing that, I will add that to the recipe. We can only get sweetened condensed milk where I am so I forget to add that word sometimes 🙂
I think the recipe does have sugar, because I read 1/2 cup brown sugar.
