These are the BEST Brownie Mix Cookies with chewy edges and a gooey center! This easy recipe is fun to make for brownie lovers.

Y’all know I’m a lazy baker! Most of my dessert recipes here start with a mix or pre-made pie crust, and I’m totally okay with it!

I consider myself a savory cook, so all of the measuring involved in baking can be a little painful for me.

But I definitely love to EAT desserts, even if making them isn’t my favorite activity!

“These are my go to easy cookie for any holiday… I just change the color of M&M’s.”

Easy Brownie Mix Cookies

This easy brownie cookies recipe starts with boxed brownie mix and simple ingredients! I love them because they have that fudgy brownie texture.

A delicious fudgy center with crispy edges is my idea of the perfect cookie!

Easy Brownie Mix Cookies

When making this brownie mix cookie recipe, you will need:

  1. Fudge Brownie Box Mix: I used Pillsbury brownie mix, but you can use your favorite brand. Betty Crocker brownie mix is fine. I also love to use Ghirardelli Brownie Mix when I have it on hand! You can use gluten-free brownie mix for gluten-free cookies.
  2. All-purpose flour: You will need to add a bit of flour so the dough can hold a normal cookie form. I used unbleached all-purpose flour. You can substitute with a gluten-free all-purpose flour if needed, I like Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 or Cup4Cup.
  3. Eggs
  4. Vegetable Oil: Any neutral tasting oil will work fine in this recipe.
  5. Mini chocolate chips: You can also substitute white chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, dark chocolate chips or peanut butter chips.
  6. Mini M&M candies: These add fun and color to the cookies (and a little crunch), but you can omit them. Or substitute with extra chocolate chips!

What size cookie scoop did you use?

I used a medium-sized scoop equal to about 1.5 tablespoons.

Feel free to use a small cookie scoop or large cookie scoop to make different sized cookies! But please know you’ll need to keep an eye on the bake time if you use a different sized scoop.

Can I freeze these Brownie Mix Cookies?

Yes! Allow the baked cookies to cool completely. Freeze them for 1 hour in a single layer on a baking sheet before placing in a freezer-safe container.

The cookies can be frozen for up to 1 month without loss in quality. Thaw at room temperature before eating.

You can keep a piece of white bread in the container with the cookies to keep them softer, if desired.

These are the BEST Brownie Mix Cookies with chewy edges and a gooey center! This easy recipe is fun to make for brownie lovers.


  • 1 box fudge brownie mix (see notes)
  • ⅓ cup (49 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup (78 mL) vegetable oil
  • ½ cup (85 g) mini chocolate chips plus more for topping (omit if your brownies contain chocolate chips in the mix)
  • ½ cup (110 g) mini M&M’s plus more for topping


  1.  Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2.  Add the dry brownie mix, all-purpose flour, eggs, and oil to a medium bowl. Mix by hand or with a hand mixer until well-combined. The batter will be thick.
  3. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to fold in the mini chocolate chips and mini M&M’s.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, place scoops of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are set but the middle is still fudgy and slightly undercooked. Take care not to over-bake the cookies, I start to check the cookies around 7 minutes. If you bake for too much time, the cookies will be hard as a rock!
  6. Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately place a few extra mini chocolate chips and mini M&M’s on top of the cookie.
  7.  Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet or a wire rack 10-15 minutes before removing to cool completely.  


I used an 18.4 ounce brownie mix from Pillsbury.
