I’m all about making cookies.  They are one of my favorite things to bake because within a half hour you get to taste what you’ve made.

I’ve been trying to clean out my cabinets so I had several cake and brownie mixes pulled out.  I saw a recipe for brownie batter cookies are thought they looked great.

I love easy recipes that start with a mix.  As long as you doctor it up a bit they can taste amazing.  Plus, since this is a brownie batter cookie using a brownie mix is the perfect way to get that classic brownie flavor.


  • brownie mix
  • flour
  • eggs
  • butter
  • espresso powder or instant coffee
  • chocolate chips

To Make the Cookies:  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine the brownie mix, flour, eggs, melted butter, and espresso powder.  Mix until just combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Divide the dough into 9 equal portions and place them on the cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-11 minutes and remove from oven.  Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Making these cookies was really easy.  It only took about 10 minutes to gather the ingredients and mix them all together.

While I made large cookies which are traditional of Crumbl Cookie you could definitely make about twice as many regular sized cookies.  Just cook them for about 2 minutes shorter than the recipe states.

I also like that chocolate chips are added to these cookies.  It makes them have more of a cookie rather than a brownie feel.

Can I use a chocolate cake mix instead?

Yes!  You can actually use a chocolate cake mix and it’ll taste very similar.  I’ve used both the brownie mix and chocolate cake mix and they both turned out fabulous.

Can I add in anything to the batter?

You can use a variety of add ins to the batter. A half cup of chopped nuts tastes great in these cookies.   You can also add:

  • a half cup of different chocolate or flavored chips
  • a half cup of dried cranberries or cherries
  • a quarter cup of peanut butter or Nutella
  • a few tablespoons of caramel sauce

How do you store the cookies?

Keep them in an air tight container at room temperature for 4 days.  You can keep them in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Can you freeze Brownie Mix Cookies?

Yes you can!   After baking let cool completely.   Wrap in plastic wrap then stick in a freezer bag.  They will stay fresh for up to 3 months.

Watch the cookies while they bake.  You want to pull them out when they just set but aren’t wiggly in the middle.  They will continue cooking on the baking sheet after you pull them out.

Once out I sprinkled mine with half sea salt and half espresso salt.  You don’t have to sprinkle with salt at all but I like the hint of savory with all that sweetness.

More Brownie Recipes:

These cookies are amazing.   It’s like biting into a fudgy, brownie that’s in the shape of a cookie.  It’s rich and sweet but not overly so.  The salt really helps to cut the extra sweetness.

Brownie batter cookies are great when served along with a big glass of milk.   If you are looking for a hot beverage they go well with hot coffee.
