|Chewy cookies with the standard crinkly brownie top|
But I decided to change it up a bit and see what else you can make with a box of brownie mix, so here's a recipe that uses the mix to make cookies.

I originally started with a different recipe but the mixture was so dry I couldn't stir it, possibly because we were using different size boxes of brownie mix. I referenced this recipe and I ended up the adding 2 tablespoons of water they called for, and it worked perfectly.
Ingredientsmakes approximately 45 cookies using a medium cookie scoop
- 1 box brownie mix - I used the Betty Crocker dark chocolate fudge brownie mix, 13x9 size (19.9 oz)
- 2T water
- 1/4 c oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 c chips - I used white chocolate chips since I had the remnants of a bag in my baking container in the pantry, but you could add regular chocolate chips, mint chips, caramel chips, nuts, etc.

DirectionsPreheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Using a medium cookie scoop, place plops of batter (yes, plops is an official baking term) pretty far apart on the lined cookie sheet because the batter spreads quite a bit.

VerdictChewy brownie edges -- as a cookie.
This is the perfect cookie if you like the chewy brownie edges. I'm more of a middle-of-the-pan gal who prefers her brownies all soft, so these aren't my favorite cookie. Nothing wrong with them at all, I just want a different texture.
Sonny D liked the one we shared after they came out of the oven, but he didn't get any more since I took the rest to work to treat my coworkers.
