It’s no surprise the Lone Star State has many beloved foods, but one that has really made its way around the world is Dr Pepper, hailing from Waco, Texas. The soda has even launched a petition to become Texas’ official soft drink.
While Dr Pepper may be the beverage of choice for many who favor soft drinks, it’s also the secret sauce to many amazing recipes. You may have heard of using Dr Pepper in barbecue sauce (and if you’re watching your weight, swapping to the diet version is okay), but have you heard of Dr Pepper brownies? You can use it when baking brownies from scratch or make those box brownies something to remember by swapping out the water for Dr Pepper.
See the full brownie recipe — along with four other fantastic Dr Pepper inspired dishes that celebrate this bit of Texas history — here.
