But Can You Make Cookies From A Boxed Brownie Mix?

You can, and this post will teach you how to do that. It’s easy to make cookies with a boxed brownie mix. It makes the recipe so much easier, and it’s delicious! The recipe features a crunchy outside with a fudgy center, and as much as we love Betty Crocker, she can’t compete with these. 😉

And believe me, everyone will be begging for more of the rich cookies.

You will only need one bowl for the chocolate chip cookie brownies, which makes this one easy recipe. And they are gooey, chocolatey, and oh-so-delish! Did I mention they are super duper easy to make? It doesn’t take much time, and you end up with the best brownie mix cookies.

Adding Variety to Cookies

  • One of the great things about this cookie recipe is that you can really change them up by switching out chocolate chips and adding white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or even butterscotch.
  • Why not add a bit of caramel candy to the mix and make it a chewy and mouthwatering dessert?
  • You can even sprinkle some sea salt on top to give it that sweet and salty flavor combination.
  • Or pull them out of the oven, slide a few in a bowl, and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert.

Chocolate chip cookie brownies are the bomb, and we crave them around here on a regular basis. Everyone here at the house loves the cookies because you are getting the chewy brownie with a crunchy outer cookie all rolled into one treat.

We’re pretty big chocaholics around here, especially me and my youngest, so these will absolutely hit the spot if that’s what you’re craving. The best part is that you can make the recipe in one bowl, roll it out, and bake it in less than half an hour.

Start by adding the brownie mix to a large bowl. I used a grocery store brownie mix. You can use your favorite boxed brownie mix for the recipe. I bought an 18-ounce brownie mix, and that was plenty.

Secondly, add the eggs and the vegetable oil to the bowl with the brownie mix.

Thirdly, add the flour and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix everything together until well blended. I used a hand mixer, but you can also use a stand mixer.

Finally, add the chocolate chips to the bowl and mix well. The cookie brownie batter will be very thick at this point. You can mix it by hand or with a hand mixer. If you decide to use a hand mixer, just be aware that it might chop up some of the chocolate chips. It won’t hurt anything, but you’ll have some smaller pieces.

As long as I have chocolate in my mouth, I am not too worried about the size of the chips–yum!

Roll the batter into balls about 1-1/2″ thick and space the cookies about two inches apart on the cookie sheet. If you want to scoop the cookies, you can use a medium cookie scoop.

On a side note, if you are a major chocoholic you can also press a few extra chocolate chips into the top of the cookies.

Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes. If they seem like they are not quite done baking, add an extra minute or two to the baking time. You can use a little bit of butter or non-stick spray to keep the cookies from sticking to the pan. Or, use some parchment paper on top of the baking sheet and place the cookies right on top.

Once the cookies bake, let them cool for at least 10 minutes; otherwise, they will fall apart. Then, you can transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

The recipe turns out crinkly crispy edges and a chocolatey chewy center that are out of this world.

How Do You Store The Cookies?

You can store the cookies in an airtight container and keep them at room temperature. You can also refrigerate them if you’d like to. I have a Tupperware container that I use to store cookies, but you can also use a Ziplock or a container with plastic wrap over it.

Where Can I Buy Brownie Mix?

You can buy brownie mix at the grocery store. It’s usually on the aisle with baking goods.

These were the best goods I've ever baked. Thank you! Baked them for 5 extra minutes on the lower rack because I love crispy edges.

Going to try these. Pillsbury used to sell in the cookie section a Brownie choice that you were supposed to put in a pan and cook like normal brownies. I would instead slice them and bake as cookies. It was really great because I could make just a few at a time and they were so good. I think they quit making that choice as I recently searched on their site since could not find in the stores any longer I am all for anything simple and look forward to trying this recipe.
