Why I love this brownie mix cookie recipe
Normally, I like to bake things from scratch. I enjoy the process of baking and so it’s just a natural thing for me. But, not I realize that not everyone has the time to bake things from scratch.
Thankfully, there’s a surprising amount of baking mixes that are dairy free, and there are so many delicious things you can do with a box of brownie (or cake) mix, like these easy brownie cookies and my s’mores brownie cupcakes.
But the best thing about these cookies is the chewy, brownie texture. They’re unbelievably soft and full of rich chocolate flavor. I promise you’re going to love them.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it
Ingredient notes: make sure you buy a baking mix that works for you. If you need a dairy free mix, be sure to read the nutrition label, and contact the company if you’re worried about cross contamination.
How to make Brownie Mix Cookies from a box
Mix the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until the brownie batter is nice and smooth.
Scoop the dough. Using a cookie scoop (if you have one), scoop 2-tablespoon balls of dough about 2 inches apart on cookies sheet.
Bake the cookies. Pop your cookies into the oven for about 10-12 minutes. The cookies won’t seem completely set when you take them out. The tops should look done, but the cookies might be slightly wobbly. That’s ok.
You want them to be “undercooked” for that fudgy brownie texture. They’ll set as they’re cooling.
Cool. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the hot cookie sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack.
