You can easily make these brownie mix cookies ahead of time and store them on the kitchen counter for a few days or freeze them for up to 3 months.

Oh and did I mention they only require one bowl to prepare them? Yes, so clean-up is also a breeze which is a big win in my books.

Variations for Brownie Mix Cookies

  • Change up the chocolate chips by adding peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, mint chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, chocolate chunks, Bailey’s chips or any other kind of baking chips.
  • Dust the cookies with confectioner’s sugar or brush with glaze.
  • Add sour cherries for a tart and chewy texture.
  • Use the cookies to make vanilla ice cream sandwiches like these. Choose your favorite ice cream and place it between two cookies and freeze. Voila! Ice cream sandwich!
  • Dip the cookies in melted chocolate for a chocolate-covered brownie cookie.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use a mild flavored oil like canola or grapeseed to make these brownie mix cookies. Or if you’d like to use coconut oil that would work well too though you may have a slight coconut flavor.
  • Make sure to use a cookie scoop or a large tablespoon so the cookies are all the same size which will ensure they bake at the same pace.
  • If you want to make a gluten-free brownie mix cookies recipe you can buy a gluten-free brownie mix and follow the directions for this recipe. Just read the ingredient list for all the other ingredients to make sure they are also gluten-free.

What kind of chocolate chips go best in these brownie cookies?

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips but any kind of chocolate chips will work; milk, dark, white or even butterscotch are all good options. Dark chocolate is my favorite because it is richer!

No, make sure to follow the directions here to make these cookies.

Can I make these cookies ahead of time?

Yes, these cookies are perfect for making ahead of time. Keep them on the kitchen counter for a few days in an airtight glass or Tupperware container or freeze them in a ziploc bag for up to 3 months.

Does the cookie dough need to be refrigerated before baking?

In this recipe I haven’t included any refrigeration time but if you’d like you can refrigerate the dough which will stop the cookies from spreading as much. Note, I haven’t tried baking them this way so if you do refrigerate them let me know how they turn out.

You can buy brownie mix at the grocery store. It’s usually on the aisle with baking goods.

What is a Brookie?

A brookie is a combination of a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie! Equally as fabulous as these brownie mix cookies, but definitely not the same. Brookies are usually marbled together and served as a square. Sometimes they’re referred to as Brondies.
