Make a twist on brownies and turn them into cookies.

Brownie mix cookies are a quick and easy way to make chocolate cookies with a fudgelike consistency. Chocolate chips are added to make these super chocolaty and delicious. These brownie cookies are a fun way to make ice cream sandwiches as well, filling vanilla or chocolate ice cream between two cookies. You can even save extra batches for later.


  • 1 box brownie mix, 19-ounce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the brownie mix, eggs, water, flour and oil to a mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.

Add the chocolate chips and mix them in with the batter.

Scoop spoonfuls of the dough onto a nonstick or greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.


If you want a smaller batch of brownie cookies, use a 10.25-ounce pouch of brownie mix and halve the rest of the ingredients, cooking as directed. For a lighter version of these brownie mix cookies, use applesauce or canned pumpkin instead of the vegetable oil. You can also swap out the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or even butterscotch chips. Toss in chopped pecans if you like nuts, or sprinkle powdered sugar on top just before baking for a sweet aesthetic effect.


Put a slice of bread in the bag or cookie jar used to hold leftover brownie cookies to keep them as soft and fresh as possible. If you want to freeze the cookies for a later date, put them in a freezer-safe box and use freezer paper between each layer. Freezing the cookies loose in a bag will make them freeze together. The cookies will keep for up to 6 months.
