Let’s Do This: Super Easy Brownie Mix Cookies
Heat oven to 350 degrees. **Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.** Trust me on this.
- Brownie Mix (regular 9X9 size…if you use the FAMILY size, **see adjustments below**)
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup water or coffee (cooled) **The coffee amplifies the chocolate flavor – you can’t even detect it after the cookies are baked.
**ADJUSTMENTS for 9X13:
- 1/3 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water or coffee
Put everything in a bowl, and mix up the batter. It might be a bit thin – no worries. If you would like a THICKER cookie, just add a little less water / coffee.
Add some personalization with chips, nuts, or candies:
- Salted Caramel Chips (a serious favorite in our kitchen)
- White Chocolate Chips
- Pecan pieces
- Marshmallows (Smores Brownie Cookies?? Yes, please.)
- Peanut Butter Chips
- Chocolate Chips
- Reeses Pieces
- You get it…..just find a flavor that you love
Drop the dough onto the *parchment-lined* cookie sheet. I like to use my melon baller gadget, but you find what works for you. Bake the cookies for ABOUT 12-15 minutes. Check them out while they’re baking, and after the surface of the cookies gets shiny and begins to crack, you’re getting close. You know how it is…..you don’t want to overbake brownie cookies. They need to be soft, yet BAKED. I find that 12 – 15 minutes is a good range.
Let them cool for 5 – 10 minutes on the cookie sheet before moving them to a cooling rack.
That’s it. So ridiculously easy and so amazingly yummy. You will want to have these ingredients on hand at ALL times in the event that you need a quick treat. They are a huge hit for tailgating, birthdays, picnics, bake sale – you name it. Brownie Mix Cookies will quickly become a family favorite. They’ll be YOUR favorite because they mix up in about 5 minutes and SO crazy easy to make.
