Brownie Mix Cookies


These Brownie Mix Cookies are made with brownie mix, instant chocolate pudding, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They’re moist, fudgy, and oh-so-chocolate-y!

Ingredients

  • Brownie Mix – a pre-made mix of flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Using brownie mix as a base for cookies gives so much delicious chocolate flavor and keeps them super quick and easy!
  • Instant Chocolate Pudding – not only does pudding mix add chocolate flavor but it also helps the cookies hold their shape and makes them super light and soft.
  • Unsalted Butter – adds moisture and flavor depth.
  • Eggs – helps bind the ingredients together so the cookies can hold their shape.
  • Semisweet Chocolate Chips – gives the cookies a bit of creamy texture.
  • Powdered Sugar – optional, but highly recommended for extra sweetness and color contrast.

How to make

I love how easy these cookies are to make. Just 10 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to bake!

  1. Place brownie mix, instant pudding, melted butter, and eggs into a large bowl then beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Use a large cookie scoop to portion the dough into 22 cookie dough balls onto 3 baking sheets lined with silicone baking mats.
  3. Optional: place powdered sugar into a medium sized bowl and roll each cookie dough ball until fully coated.
  4. Bake the cookies at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes then cool, serve, and enjoy!

Why is there pudding mix in cookies?

Instant pudding mix is made up of a pre-gelatinized starch which helps the cookies hold their shape and makes them ultra soft.

It also adds sweetness and extra chocolate flavor to the cookies!

Variations

  • Use other mix-ins. Swap some of the chocolate chips out for crushed walnuts, marshmallows, toffee bits, etc. You’ll need one cup total mix-ins.
  • Add espresso. Mix in some espresso powder to enhance the chocolate flavor.
  • Make them peanut butter chocolate. Swirl in some peanut butter or use peanut butter chips.
  • Frost them. Let the cookies cool then top them off with some homemade frosting.
  • Make ice cream sandwiches. Smush your favorite ice cream between two cooled brownie cookies for a delicious two-in-one dessert.
