How to make brownie cookies
For more of a homemade version (and in case you don’t have a brownie mix handy), try this recipe below. It’s really simple and these cookies turn out so delicious.
PREP. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
WET INGREDIENTS. In a saucepan, melt the butter and 1 cup of chocolate chips over low heat stirring occasionally. Remove from heat when it’s all melted together. Stir the brown sugar into the mixture and let cool slightly. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla.
DRY INGREDIENTS. Add the dry ingredients – flour, salt, and cocoa – and mix. Then add in the remaining chocolate chips.
BAKE. After the batter is all mixed, let it rest for 30 minutes. After it’s rested, drop tablespoons of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
To make brownie cookies with a mix:
- 1 box brownie mix
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips
Begin by adding together the brownie mix, oil, and eggs until well combined.
Then fold in the chocolate chips. Cook at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Cool for 3 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Tips and Variations
- Use high quality chocolate chips
- In step 2 be sure you don’t overheat the butter-chocolate mix. Pull the mixture off the stove as soon as the chocolate has melted and has been stirred into the butter. Heating for too long can cause the chocolate to seize causing it to become grainy and pasty.
- If the dough is too sticky to scoop, just chill it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
You can make these brownie cookies in a couple different variations:
- Add caramel bits and chopped pecans to make them “turtle brownie cookies”.
- Change out the chips to add different flavors. We love to use butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and/or peanut butter chips!
- Add in crushed Oreo cookies to the batter to make them “Oreo brownie cookies”.
Like other cookies you can make the brownie cookie dough ahead of time and STORE it to be baked later. Cover and store the dough in the fridge for 1-2 days.
For longer storage scoop the dough into balls, place them on a pan and FREEZE. Once solid, transfer them to a freezer safe container. They can stay in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw for about 15 minutes before baking
STORE in an airtight container until ready to eat these delicious treats.
We hope you love these brownie mix cookies – they’re definitely a family fav!
