What’s Needed for This Easy Brownie Mix Cookies Recipe
- Box of brownie mix: This recipe works with your favorite brand of brownie mix, whether it’s the store brand or the fancier Ghirardelli brownie mix.
- Flour: The extra all-purpose flour added to the boxed brownie mix in this recipe gives these cookies more of a cookie texture verses a brownie texture.
- Vegetable oil: Use a light tasting oil like canola oil. It loosens up the batter and makes the cookies nice and moist.
- Eggs: This is what gives delicious cookies structure and helps to make the cookies chewy. You’ll want to use a large egg in this recipe. Extra-large eggs may make these cookies too cakey.
- White Chocolate Chips: The gorgeous white chocolate morsels are what makes these cookies extra special. Not only do they taste amazing, but they also look beautiful in contrast to the dark cookie dough.
How to Make The Best Brownie Mix Cookies
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line sheet pan with parchment paper.
Step 2: In large bowl, mix the brownie mix and flour.
Step 3: Next, mix the eggs and vegetable oil into the dry ingredients until well combined.
It is a very thick dough, so you may have to knead by hand.
Step 4: Stir the white chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
Step 5: Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
Step 6: Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on your oven. If they aren’t quite done, let them bake an extra minute or two and check them again.
Step 7: Let cool for about five minutes on cookie sheet and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
How Do You Store Brownie Mix Cookies?
Store your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They’ll be good for about 5 days…if that last that long!
Can I Freeze Chocolate Brownie Mix Cookies?
You sure can! Just allow them to completely cool, wrap them in plastic wrap and slip them into a freezer safe bag. They’ll stay fresh for about 3-4 months. When ready to thaw, just take out the number of cookies you want and thaw them right on the counter until they’re room temperature.
Tips And Tricks For Making The Very Best Cookies
Even baking: You want to be sure the scoops of dough are the same size. If you have trouble getting them the same size with a spoon, use a small cookie scoop to measure out the dough.
Line the pan: When the sugar in the brownie mix begins to bake, it melts and can cause your cookies to stick. Be sure to line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or use a Silpat mat, even if you’re using non-stick pans.
Allow to cool: Allowing these cookies to cool has to be hardest part of making them! When cookies first come out of the oven they will break apart if you don’t give them time to cool. Place them on a cooling rack so air can circulate and cool them quicker.
Don’t over mix: The reason this recipe calls for you to mix the dough by hand instead of with a hand mixer is because it is really easy to over mix the dough, which causes the cookies to be tough. Mix the dough just until the dry ingredients are mixed well with the wet ingredients.
Warm cookies: Nothing beats fresh cookies while they are still warm. It’s easy to get that same ooey gooey texture even after they cool. Just stick them in the microwave for about 20 seconds and they will taste freshly baked all over again.
Variations of Brownie Cookies
- Brownie Mix: This recipe calls for just a classic brownie mix, but you can use dark chocolate brownie box mix, or you can even use the brownie mix that has walnuts included.
- Chocolate chips: Instead of the white chocolate chips, you can add any flavor of chocolate chips you’d like to this cookie batter. Peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips and peppermint chips all work great with this recipe. For an extra chocolatey flavor, you can even use milk chocolate chips for a double chocolate chip cookie.
- Extra chewy cookies: For a really chewy and gooey cookie, add in caramel candy pieces. Be sure to chop the caramels in a few pieces; you don’t want huge chunks.
- Sweet and salty combo: Sprinkle the top of the cookies with a little bit of sea salt right when you take them out of the oven. You’ll like that tiny bit of saltness with the sweet cookie.
- Ice cream sandwiches: What could possibly be better than brownie cookies? Ice cream brownie cookie sandwiches! Just put a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two cookies and lightly press it down into a bite size width. Place in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up before serving.
