  • Brownie Base:
    • 1 box of your favorite brownie mix
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 large eggs
  • Honey Spice Swirl:
    • 1/4 cup honey (preferably a mild variety)
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


  • 9×13 inch baking dish
  • Mixing bowls (2)
  • Mixing spoon or electric mixer
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Knife or toothpick for swirling
  • Cooling rack (optional)


  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish using cooking spray or butter. You can also line it with parchment paper for easier removal of brownies.
  2. Making the Brownie Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix with 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, 1/4 cup of water, and 2 eggs.
    • Stir the mixture using a spoon or an electric mixer until the ingredients are well combined and the batter is smooth. Avoid overmixing to ensure the brownies stay moist.
  3. Preparing the Honey Spice Mixture:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of allspice.
    • Blend these ingredients until they form a smooth, fragrant mixture.
  4. Assembling the Brownies:
    • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.
    • Drizzle the honey spice mixture over the top of the brownie batter in a random pattern.
    • Using a knife or toothpick, gently swirl the honey mixture into the brownie batter, creating a marbled effect. Be careful not to over-swirl, as this can mix the layers too much.
  5. Baking:
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. The exact time may vary depending on your oven and the specific brownie mix used.
    • Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the brownies. It should come out mostly clean, with a few moist crumbs.
  6. Cooling and Serving:
    • Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. This rest period helps them set and makes cutting easier.
    • After cooling, cut the brownies into your desired size and serve. They can be served warm or at room temperature.
    • For a special treat, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.


  • Variations: Consider adding chopped nuts or a sprinkle of sea salt on top for added texture and flavor.
  • Storage: Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or refrigerate for longer freshness.

Enjoy your delicious Honey Bun Brownies, a perfect blend of rich chocolate and warm spices!
