Why you will love this Recipe

There are so many reasons to love this brownie mix cookie recipe. The first being the convenience of using a box mix. That means you only need 5 ingredients to make these brownie cookies.

The second is that they are so darn amazing and they turn out great every single time. You can count on the fact that you are going to have super rich and fudgy cookies every time.

Ingredients Needed

  • Boxed Brownie Mix: I always use Betty Crocker because I love everything they make but you can try this with another mix if you have it on hand.
  • Eggs: adding richness and helping to bind all of the ingredients together.
  • All Purpose Flour: Added to help give the cookies a bit more structure.
  • Vegetable Oil: For moisture and a light texture.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: The combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips with the fudgy mix is the perfect mix.

Recipe Variations

There are so many ways that you can make this recipe just a bit different. Here are some of my favorite ways:

  • Add chopped nuts- walnuts, pecans or almonds would all be great additions to the cookie dough.
  • Make these Brownie Cookies into a sandwich cookie- fill with frosting or better yet…ice cream!
  • Dip in chocolate- if you are a chocolate lover {like myself}, melt additional chocolate and dip part of the cookie in it.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar- a sprinkling of powdered sugar can take any cookie over the top.

How to Make Brownie Cookies from a Mix

1. Combine the brownie mix, eggs, flour and vegetable oil in a medium bowl and mix using a hand held mixer {or by hand} until you have a thick dough.

2. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips and stir into the dough by hand. This ensures that the chocolate chips stay in one piece and don’t get broken up by the beaters of the mixer.

Steps 1 and 2 of making brownie mix cookies. 1, combine cookie dough ingredients. 2, add chocolate chips.

3. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop mounds of dough onto a silicone mat {or parchment} lined baking sheet.

4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are set.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t over bake the cookies. It can be a bit tricky using a boxed mix because if you over bake the cookies they can become super hard quickly. The key is to not over bake them. Remove them from the oven once the edges have set. The middle may still look underdone but that is totally alright.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet. The residual heat from the baking sheet will continue to slightly bake the cookies. This allows them to set up perfectly and be the brownie texture we all know and love.
  • Store in an airtight container. To keep these cookies soft for days, keep them in an airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe FAQs

How do I store the cookies?

The best way to store brownie cookies is in a good airtight container at room temperature {or in the refrigerator} for up to 4 days. They will stay soft as long as they are in a good container.

Can I freeze brownie mix cookies?

You can freeze these cookies for up to 3 months. My favorite way is to place the cookies in a box and put layers of paper towels between the cookies. Wrap the entire box with a double wrap of plastic wrap and freeze. You could also place them in a freezer bag.

What is the difference between a brownie and brownie cookie?

You will find that a brownie is thinner than a cookie dough. That is so you can bake brownies in a baking pan {with sides}. A cookie is baked on a cookie sheet and holds its shape.
