Brownie Cookies Recipe

Hey there, fellow foodies! Ready to embark on a culinary adventure that combines two of the most beloved treats in the universe? That’s right, today we’re diving into the world of Brownie Cookies. Picture this: rich, fudgy brownies meets the irresistible allure of freshly baked cookies. Are you drooling yet? Well, get ready, because we’re about to take your taste buds on a wild ride!

What are Brownie Cookies?

Let’s break it down for those who might be new to this mind-blowing creation. Brownie cookies are essentially the offspring of a passionate affair between brownies and cookies. They inherit the best qualities of both parents – the dense, chewy texture of a brownie, combined with the portable, snackable convenience of a cookie. It’s a match made in dessert heaven, if you ask me!


Now, let’s gather our ammunition for this epic baking endeavor. You’ll need:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces of chocolate (I prefer Ghirardelli’s melting wafers.)


Step 1: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until completely combined. Roll into roughly 24 1-inch-diameter balls. Set aside.
Step 3: In a large bowl, mix together the brownie mix, butter, cream cheese, and egg.
Step 4: Using a cookie scoop, scoop the batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Smooth the edges if necessary to form a round cookie.
Step 5: Bake the cookies for 15 – 20 minutes.
Step 6: After baking, immediately press one of the prepared peanut butter balls into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Step 7: Once the cookies are cool, melt your chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl). Spoon melted chocolate over the top of each cookie. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.

Step 8: Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for – it’s time to indulge! Sink your teeth into these divine creations and let the rich, chocolatey goodness envelop your senses. With each bite, you’ll experience a symphony of flavors that will transport you to dessert nirvana. Trust me, resistance is futile!

Step 9: Feeling adventurous? Why not try experimenting with different variations of this recipe? You could add a handful of chopped nuts for extra crunch, or perhaps sprinkle some sea salt on top for a tantalizing sweet-and-salty twist. The possibilities are endless, so don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen!

Step 10: As you savor each delectable morsel of these brownie cookies, take a moment to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. Whether you’re enjoying them with a steaming cup of coffee on a lazy Sunday morning or sharing them with friends at a backyard barbecue, these little treats have a way of bringing joy to any occasion.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Variations: Experiment with different add-ins like chopped nuts or dried fruit for a personalized touch.
  • Texture: For an extra chewy texture, slightly underbake the cookies and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Presentation: Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top or drizzle with additional melted chocolate for a professional-looking finish.


In conclusion, Brownie Cookies are a true testament to the magic that can happen when two beloved desserts come together in perfect harmony. With their irresistible blend of flavors and textures, they’re sure to become a staple in your baking repertoire. So why wait? Grab your apron, preheat that oven, and let’s get baking!
