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!

And, 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.

And, the best part is that you can make the recipe in one bowl, roll them out, and bake them in less than half an hour.

Full printable recipe with measurements and instructions listed at the bottom of the post in the recipe card.

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!

Cookies rolled up on a cookie sheet.

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.

This is one of my favorite desserts because it’s so chocolatey and I am quite a little piggy with them.

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.

Brownie Mix Cookies

Yield: 18 cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Brownie mix cookies are a wonderfully rich and decadent fudgy dessert that is easy to whip up and bake in no time. 


  • 1 - 18 ounce box of brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Heat oven to 375-degrees. Grease a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper.
  2. Add the brownie mix to a large bowl.
  3. Next, add the eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and flour and mix well. (It will be very thick dough).
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix.
  5. Roll the cookies in 1-1/2-inch balls and set them two inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before moving them from the pan.
  7. Cool on a cooling rack.


TIP: The batter will be a very thick batter.

If the cookies are still doughy after 10 minutes, bake them for a few more minutes until the outsides look crinkly.

If the batter is not thick, add one tablespoon of flour to the batter and mix. You might need 1-3 tablespoons of flour, but start with one at a time.

I bought the Ghirardelli brownie mix but what I didn't realize was it came with chips and syrup in the box. I am planning on using the chips but I'm not sure what to do with the syrup. The other thing is it says its 19 oz. I don't know if that includes the chips and or syrup. HELP!

Hi Chris,

I think you will be fine with the 19 ounces. It probably does include the weight of the syrup. I would leave out the syrup and just use the mix. You can drizzle the syrup on top after the cookies bake if you'd like to.

I made these today and followed your recipe exactly as written. Only change was,I had mini chocolate chips instead of regular size. These are absolutely fantastic! They taste like little individual chocolate lava cakes. A little crackly on the outside, and ooey gooey on the inside. Such a simple recipe but it's an amazing treat! Not the first time I've tried one of your recipes, and definitely not the last! Delicious!!
