I love using cake mixes to make different recipes like cake mix brownies, cake mix cookie bars, and cake mix waffles but today I am using a brownie mix to make cookies.

Why you’ll love Cookies from Brownie Mix

  • Can be made fast and only 4 ingredients needed.
  • Fudgy, chewy cookies rich in chocolate flavor.
  • Easy to customize with different add-in ingredients.

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
  • Sprinkles
  • Chopped nuts
  • Sprinkle the top with sea salt

These cookies also make the perfect “sandwich” cookie. Try making a cookiewich using vanilla ice cream and two cookies or even fill with marshmallow fluff.

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

What is the difference between a cake mix and a brownie mix?

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.

Can you freeze these cookies?

Yes, these cookies can be frozen. Let the cookies completely cool and then place in a freezer safe bag or container. Freeze for up to 3 months.

    Excellent recipe, ice them with a mocha icing and these are superb! They are excellent brownie cookies, moist and delicious. Preferred to regular brownies that can be dry.

  2. I have a question about the size of the brownie mix you used. I have seen them in the store ranging from 13.5oz to 18.5 oz. do I have to alter the ingrediants acording to the size of the mix.

    1. The recipe says you can.
      Under Brownie Cookies with Box Ingredients. Vegetable or canola oil – Either of these work well. You can also use coconut oil.

  3. My granddaughter loves these made them for her a lot. My granddaughter in law just asked for recipe her and my great granddaughter love them also

  4. 4 stars
    Used applesauce in place of oil. Runny texture. Added a bit more flour. Same. But, they baked up well and are delicious. Probably my error.
    Certainly a quick way to get yummy cookies!

  5. 5 stars
    These came out amazing! Added about 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Baked for 9 minutes at 350⁰. They did not flatten as some of the posts had mentioned.
    I used the Pillsbury 13×9 family size box and used the amount of oil, eggs, and flour specified in the recipe. Going to try with M&M’s next!
