Cooking time :

To ensure your Brownie Mix Cookies are perfectly baked, I recommend the following:

  1. Keep an Eye on Them: Begin checking the cookies around the 7-minute mark. They should be set around the edges but still soft in the middle.
  2. Adjust for Size: If you make larger cookies, they may need a bit more time, while smaller cookies might be ready a bit sooner.
  3. Use Visual Cues: Look for a slightly cracked appearance on the surface of the cookies. This is a good indicator that they are done.
  4. Doneness Test: Insert a toothpick into the center of a cookie. If it comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter), the cookies are done.


  • 1 box Brownie Mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/8 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • Optional: Nuts of your choice


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare Baking Sheet:
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  3. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and all-purpose flour. If you like a nutty texture, you can add chopped nuts at this stage.
  4. Combine Thoroughly:
    • Mix the ingredients well until a thick, cookie-like batter is formed. Ensure that all dry ingredients are fully incorporated.
  5. Scoop onto Baking Sheet:
    • Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop portions of the batter onto the prepared baking sheet. Make sure to leave enough space between each cookie as they will spread while baking.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 9 minutes. Keep an eye on them as baking times may vary depending on your oven and the size of your cookies.
  7. Cooling:
    • Once baked, allow the cookies to set on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. This helps them firm up before transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. Transfer to Cooling Rack:
    • After the initial 5 minutes, carefully transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Once completely cooled, your brownie mix cookies are ready to be enjoyed! They should have a soft and chewy texture, reminiscent of brownies but in a cookie form.

How to store it :

Proper storage is key to maintaining the freshness and flavor of your Brownie Mix Cookies. Here’s how to store them for optimal results:

Short-Term Storage (Up to a Week):

  1. Cool Completely:
    • Allow the cookies to cool completely on the cooling rack after baking.
  2. Air-Tight Container:
    • Transfer the cooled cookies into an airtight container. Make sure the container is clean and dry.
  3. Layering:
    • If stacking the cookies, consider placing a sheet of parchment paper between layers to prevent them from sticking together.
  4. Room Temperature:
    • Store the airtight container at room temperature. The cookies should remain fresh for up to a week.

Long-Term Storage (Beyond a Week):

  1. Cool Completely:
    • Again, ensure the cookies are fully cooled before storing.
  2. Freeze in a Single Layer:
    • Place the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze them until solid. This prevents the cookies from sticking together.
  3. Transfer to Freezer Bag or Container:
    • Once frozen, transfer the cookies to a freezer-safe bag or airtight container. If using a bag, try to remove as much air as possible before sealing.
  4. Label and Date:
    • Label the container or bag with the contents and date for easy identification.
  5. Freeze:
    • Store the cookies in the freezer. They can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.


  1. Room Temperature:
    • To thaw cookies, simply remove them from the freezer and let them come to room temperature in the sealed container or bag.
  2. Reheat (Optional):
    • If desired, you can briefly warm the cookies in a preheated oven for a few minutes to regain that freshly baked taste.
