Brownie Cookies Recipe

These chewy and fudgy brownie cookies combine the best of desserts worlds making one delicious “brookie” filled with loads of chocolate chips AND flavor!

Brownie Cookies

What is a Brookie?

A “brookie” is a mix of a brownie bar and a cookie all in one, and I can tell you right now that they are amazing! Sometimes that sweet tooth hits and you can’t quite decide if you want a brownie or a cookie. You don’t have to decide when you can make both in one delicious, chewy cookie.

These brownie cookies are soft and chewy like a brownie but also have a crispy outside like a cookie. The outside of the cookie has a crackly finish like a brownie too! They are super yummy and if you have never tried a brookie, you need to! Read on for the recipe and more info on making brownie cookies.

Brownie Mix Cookies

The recipe we have provided below is more of a homemade version. But you can easily make these with a brownie mix if you’d rather do that. Especially if you already have a brownie mix in your pantry. Here’s what you need for that version:

  • 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.


How Do you Make Brownie Cookies from scratch?

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.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. 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. Add the dry ingredients – flour, salt, and cocoa – and mix. Then add in the remaining chocolate chips.

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.

How to store brownie cookies? Store in an airtight container until ready to eat these delicious treats.

Can I make a turtles version? You can make these brownie cookies in a couple different variations. Add caramel bits and chopped pecans to make them “turtle brownie cookies”.

Can I use different kinds of chocolate chips? Of course – this version is a chocolate brookie, but you can change out the chips to add different flavors. We love to use butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and/or peanut butter chips! And if you love Oreos, you should try adding in crush Oreo cookies to the batter to make them “Oreo brownie cookies”. Both so delicious!!

  1. There isn’t ever enough chocolate to be had. I love the idea of getting a brownie style cookie. Though I’m not sure I’d be able to eat just one.

  2. 5 stars
    Cookies and brownies all in one? What a fun Idea… and you make me even happier with all the chocolate! This will be so fun to make with my niece this weekend… Thanks!

  3. Hi! Can you make the dough BEFOREHAND and refrigerate it for a couple of days? Thinking about making them for a Christmas cookie exchange!
