  • 1 box brownie mix (not prepared)
  • 1 egg
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup milk

French Silk Layer

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (cubed)
  • 8 ounce Cool Whip


  • 8 ounce Cool Whip
  • chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 11x7-inch (2 quart) glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, egg, melted butter, and milk, stirring until smooth. Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake at 350F for 25-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • Remove the brownies from the oven and cool completely to room temperature.

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar and mix until combined.

  • In a small microwave safe bowl, heat the semi-sweet chocolate and unsalted butter in 30 second intervals until melted, stirring well between each cooking interval.

  • Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture to the cream cheese mixture and stir until well combined. Gently fold in the Cool Whip.

  • Spread the French silk layer over the cooled brownies, then spread on the remaining 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip.

  • If desired, sprinkle chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips over the French Silk Brownies. Slice and serve.
