Everyone in my house loves brownies. They are just so good. The center is soft and gooey while the edges are perfectly crispy.

Probably the only downfall for me is that brownies take so long to cook. Fortunately, you can make this Brownie Cookies recipe in a very short period of time.

Plus, the ingredient list is super easy and only calls for 5 ingredients.

Ingredients for recipe.

How to make brownie cookies:

  • Preheat oven. It should be set to 350 degree.
  • Combine ingredients. Mix together brownie mix, flour, eggs and oil in a large bowl. The batter will be very thick by the time you are done mixing (you may even have to use your hands at the end).
  • Shape dough into balls. Pinch off a small amount of batter and roll into a ball. You can also use a cookie scoop.
  • Coat in powdered sugar. Roll each ball around in powdered sugar, being sure to cover completely.
  • Bake the cookies. Set cookies 2-inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. The baking time may vary so keep an eye on the cookies.
  • Allow to cool. Remove cookies and let cool on a wire rack. They need to sit a few minutes on the baking sheet before you move them or they might crumble.

How to store Brownie mix cookies

Place the cookies inside an airtight container. They will keep at room temperature for up to 1 to 2 weeks. 

My kids go crazy over these cookies so they rarely last that long at our house. Everyone eats these pretty quickly.

Tip: Keep a piece of bread in the container with the cookies to keep them moist while you store them. 

How to freeze cookies

You can freeze the dough or the baked cookies. Either option can be frozen up to 3 months.

  • Freeze the Dough
  • Shape the cookies into balls.
  • Place on a baking sheet and freeze for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Then store the frozen cookie dough balls in a freezer container or bag.
  • Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge when ready to enjoy. You can also bake them frozen but add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
  • Freeze the cookies
  • Allow the baked cookies to cool.
  • Place inside a freezer container with parchment paper in between the layers.
  • When ready to enjoy, allow to thaw in the fridge overnight.

Both of these options will allow you to enjoy cookies any day of the week without much work. We often double the recipe just to have some to freeze.

It makes last minute get togethers or parties so easy with cookies ready to go.

Tips for making Brownie Cookies

  • It is easiest to make the balls if you use a cookie scoop. They will all be uniform and the cookies will bake evenly. It also makes it so quick to make each ball.
  • The cookies will be soft in the middle but continue to cook on the pan once out of the oven. Don’t be tempted to continue baking them or you will overcook the cookies.
  • You can use any brand of brownie mix you prefer. We used Betty Crocker but Duncan Hines or store brand make good options too.
  • The dough can be chilled for 30 minutes in the refrigerator before scooping. This will make the dough more manageable to scoop. It will also prevent it from spreading too thin while baking.

  • Espresso Powder is a tasty add-in. The combination with chocolate is really yummy.
  • Peanut Butter Chips make a fabulous flavor twist. Peanut butter fans will love this. Just toss in handful into the batter.
  • Try different types of brownie mix. Dark Chocolate is delicious.
  • Caramel Chips turn this cookie into a gooey decadent combination. Skip the powdered sugar and sprinkle with sea salt once baked.
  • Butterscotch Chips make another great variety to try. The flavor is amazing.
  • Make ice cream sandwiches with the cookies. Place ice cream in between 2 cookies for a treat everyone will enjoy.
  • Add a ½ cup of chocolate chips to make these even more decadent. You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate or even white chocolate.
  • Top the cookies before baking with more chocolate chips. Simply press a few chocolate chips into each cookie. This will enhance the chocolate flavor for the perfect treat for chocolate fans.
  • Chopped pecans or walnuts taste delicious in this recipe. You can add ½ cup to the batter.
  • Top the cookies with sprinkles for holidays, birthday parties and more. It is an easy way to jazz them up for an extra special touch.
  • Vegetable or Canola Oil can be used in this recipe.
