Brownie Cookies from box Ingredients
- Box brownie mix – I use Ghirardelli double chocolate mix and have also used Pillsbury brownie mix. I would recommend not using Betty Crocker for this recipe since it doesn’t contain baking soda and could cause the cookies to flatten.
- Vegetable or canola oil – Either of these work well. You can also use coconut oil.
- Eggs – Two eggs are needed for this recipe.
- All-purpose flour – Just a little flour is needed for these cookies.
Brownie Cookies from Mix Variations
These chocolate crackle brownie cookies are perfect to mix in other ingredients. I recommend adding in 1/2-3/4 cup of the ingredient you choose. Here are a few suggestions:
- Chocolate chips or chunks
- Peanut butter chips
- Toffee bits
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Chopped nuts
- Sprinkle the top with sea salt

Brownie Mix Cookies Recipe Tips
- There are several brands of brownie mix on the grocery shelves and each is a little different in size. I have made this with Ghriardelli and Pillsbury.
- Betty Crocker mix doesn’t contain baking soda so it might make the cookies flat. If you decide to use this brand, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to help keep them from flattening.
- Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- For uniform sized cookies, try using a cookie scoop.
- Don’t over bake these cookies. Once they cool they will be perfect on the inside. 8-9 minutes seems to be the perfect cook time.
How to store Brownie Mix Cookies
Store: Place the chocolate cookies in an airtight container and leave out at room temperature. They will last about 5 days.
Freeze: They can be frozen. Let them completely cool and then place in freezer safe bag, making sure to remove any excess air. Freeze up to 3 months. Let thaw in the refrigerator.
Brownie Mix Cookies FAQs
The big difference between the two mixes is that a cake mix contains more leavener. This helps the cake to rise. A brownie mix does not contain much leavener and they typically contain more sugar in the mix.

Great cookies! Fudgy and goey! Only think is they turn out a lot flatter than the picture, so I would recommend refrigerating the dough before hand if you don’t want them to spread out as much. The dough is also very sticky so I recommend using spoons to drop the dough, or refrigerating might help the stickiness.Also, for me it made closer to 20 than 36, but I made them a little bigger. Adding chocolate chips or other add ins make it taste even better! Great cookies!
Hi. Do you think these cookies could be used to make Brookies?
I have never tried but I think that it would work 🙂
These are great I added white and milk chocolate chips black walnuts and pecans,so yummy
These were so delicious! I made them using a Krusteaz brand double chocolate brownie mix. I also substituted 1/8 C. Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour for the 1/8 C. all purpose flour. When I took a sheet of cookies out of the oven, I pressed 3 mint flavored m&m’s on the top of each cookie. Yum!
I made these today for a party. I split the dough in half to make two different kinds. One I put in peanut butter chips, yummy! And the second I added mini chocolate chips and a little bit of coffee flavor. (I put this dough in the refrigerator to chill while I baked the other then) I rolled it in granulated sugar before I baked them. They look and smell amazing!
Can I just add baking soda to the Betty Crocker mix?
So good for ice cream sandwiches used mint chocolate chip ice cream ! They were delicious!
They didn’t have the lighter brown part, but they came out perfectly chewy with crisp edges. Thank you for this recipe!
These came out perfect. They were gone shortly after I put them out. Should have made a double batch.
These cookies are delicious!! I’ve made them so many times and they were amazing every time! The only thing I would say would that they do get flat and I have tried cooling the dough to see if that would help keep the shape a little better and it didn’t. I still make them all of the time though!!
What size boxed brownies do you use? The regular size or the mix that makes 9×13.
I only had the Betty Crocker on hand but I did add the baking soda and they still went flat.
However they tasted great and my son loved how big they got…so it was still a win.
I saw to add flour not baking soda perhaps that is why they went flat? Just trying my first attempt today but used flour.
Cookies came out flat for me, but delicious. I used Ghirardelli mix. Next time I will add 3 to 4 tsp baking powder to the mix along with the extra flour. “Baking soda spreads cookies and baking powder puffs them up.” I Googled for that information.
I substituted Coconut oil for the Veg oil these are absolutely delicious!! Thank You for posting the recipe !
What size brownie mix do you use?
I’m wondering if you have any suggestions for adjusting this recipe for high altitude?
I Debbie, I live in a high altitude area, 3000 feet, and this recipe works well as written. You could possibly increase your oven temperature by 25 degrees, just make sure to check on them so they don’t burn.
