How to make Cookies from Brownie Mix
Double Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix Cookies are going to rock your world with how easy they are. So grab the ingredients and a few kitchen supplies like measuring cups and spoons. A large bowl, baking sheets and whatever else you think you might need.
There is no need for a stand mixer or even a hand mixer with this simple recipe. Let's get started, shall we?
In a large mixing bowl add boxed brownie mix and flour and mix together so you can no longer see the white of the flour in the brownie mix.
Create a well in the center and add large egg, vegetable oil and water. Using a spoon begin to mix egg gradually adding in the brownie mix and continue stirring until all the brownie mix is combined with the wet ingredients.
Then stir chocolate chips into the brownie batter cookie dough. I prefer using Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips but try using White Chocolate chips, or even Peanut butter Chips for fun.
Pretty simple right? Well, it's meant to be that easy. In fact, this is a great recipe to get the kids involved to help.
Cookie Sheet Baking
Using spoons or a small cookie scoop carefully scoop cookie dough onto an ungreased baking cookie pan. You can also line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner for easy clean up if you prefer.
Place cookie dough at least 2 inches apart on baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven.
Baking tip for you, do NOT over bake these cookies. The tops will have a thin cracked edge layer where you can still see dark brownie under neath. Keep in mind the cookies continue to cook on a hot cookie sheet even after they have been removed from the oven. Trust me here.
When in doubt, try baking just one or two cookies first to test the baking time before baking an entire pan. It's worth it.
Allow hot cookies to cool for a minute or two on pan before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
Storage and Freezing
After cookies have fully cooled. Store cookies in an airtight container or ZipLoc Bag for up to a week. Cookies are best enjoyed within 2-3 days.
Freeze Cookies for up to 3 months when properly stored. Place parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking.
Brownie Lovers will enjoy this sweet treat and delicious dessert. The cookies are chewy with a soft fudgy brownies center when properly baked. Make sure to see the Recipe Card below for all the directions and measurements.
Baking. Do not over bake. Brownie Mix Cookies will become hard when over baked. Cookies are done with top has a thin cracked layer on top.
Mix-ins. The recipe calls for Chocolate Chips but try substituting M&M's candies, Nuts, or even mini marshmallows for fun.
Cookie Size. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto baking sheet using a cookie scoop. Uniform cookie dough will bake more evenly.
Brownie Mix. Use a quality brand Brownie Mix. Ghirardelli Brownie Mix makes the best brownie cookies. Betty Crocker and Duncan Heinz also makes a good cookie too.
Brownies vs Cookies
In a world where you can be anything why not turn a brownie mix into a cookie? With a little bit of effort these cookies are the best brownie mix cookies you can make. The chewy edges are a favorite and make for a quick dessert.
No need to make a pan of brownies or even dirty a square pan. Just topped these cookies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce for an individual dessert. They are fantastic hot out of the oven served this way too.
