Recipe Ingredients

  • Brownie box mix: Any brand of an 18 – 18.3 ounce boxed brownie mix works for this easy brownie mix cookies recipe! You will only need the dry brownie mix and not the ingredients listed on the back of the box.
  • Flour: Just a small amount of all-purpose flour is needed to obtain a thick cookie dough consistency instead of a thin brownie batter consistency.
  • Vegetable oil: You can also use melted butter to add fat and moisture, although vegetable oil is my preference as that results in more of a brownie texture.
  • Eggs: Two eggs act as a binder and help the brownie cookies achieve their cake-like cookie texture.
  • Chocolate chips: Regular sized chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips both work! If your brownie mix has chocolate chips, omit the added chocolate chips but reserve some for the tops.

How to Make

Prepare batter: In a large bowl, stir the brownie mix, flour, oil, and eggs until combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Bake: Using a large cookie scoop, scoop brownie cookie dough balls onto a prepared cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Top with additional chocolate chips and bake at 365°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still slightly doughy.

Cool: Let cool a couple minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cooling your brownie cookie completely will help the bottom of the cookie set.

Ingredients 

  • 1 (18-ounce) box brownie mix
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ vegetable oil , or melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup chocolate chips , plus more for tops

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 365°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir the brownie mix, flour, oil, and eggs until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. The consistency should be slightly thicker than a typical brownie batter.

  • Using a large cookie scoop or spoon, scoop the dough onto the baking sheet. Top with additional chocolate chips, if desired. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies are set.
  • Let cool a couple minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

Variations: 
  • M&M: Mix in 1/2 cup M&M’s and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  • Nuts: You could also add in 1/2 cup chopped nuts.
Storage: Store brownie mix cookies in a covered container up to 3 days.
