Dolly Parton has a line of Duncan Hines cake mixes. Now you can bake Dolly’s favorite cakes, her caramel turtle brownie just got added to the mix. The brownie mix includes salted caramel syrup and real California walnuts. Try cutting salted caramel brownies into fun shapes using cookie cutters.
Following the success of its 2022 launch of Dolly Parton’s cake mixes and frostings, Duncan Hines, a brand of Conagra Brands, Inc., is launching four more baking mixes with beloved GRAMMY Award-winning artist, noted philanthropist and global superstar Dolly Parton as part of the brand’s multiyear partnership with the star, brokered by Dolly’s global licensing partner IMG. The new products include a cornbread mix, biscuit mix and two brownie mixes inspired by some of Dolly’s favorite family recipes.
“I knew Duncan Hines and I were bringing something special to the baking aisle when we launched our partnership last year, and I’ve been thrilled by the response,” said Dolly Parton. “I’m really excited to launch more baking mixes steeped in my Southern roots, like Cornbread and Biscuits. I think folks are really going to like them and hope they’ll bake up some special memories with family and friends.”

For dessert, I’m assuming you’ll serve one of your new cakes from your collaboration? Is cake your favorite dessert?
Banana pudding is my favorite dessert—real banana pudding in a big bowl. That’s what inspired me to do a banana pudding cake collaboration with Duncan Hines. It’s very good; I think you’ll agree. I’d also serve the other cake in the line, our coconut cake. People in the South like to bake a coconut cake for special occasions because it looks impressive and is delicious. I’d use our buttercream frosting too. I’d serve it with coffee or milk. I love cake and milk.
Fun Fact: In 1995, Parton founded Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which mails free books to kids and encourages literacy. Parton’s ‘Imagination Library’ has mailed 172 million books to kids.
