How Much Brownie Mix Will I Need?

My Brownie Mix Cookies require an entire standard-sized box of brownie mix – which is usually around 18 oz. in-size. This yields to about 3 cups of brownie mix.

Can I Add More Ingredients to These Cookies?

Yes! The best part about these cookies is that you can add the flavors/toppings to make them your own! We went simple and only added some chocolate chips, but feel free to add some nuts, dried fruit, shredded coconut etc.

In terms of ingredients, be sure to stick with the standard butter and egg as indicated in the recipe below. However, the fillers/toppings are up to you! Let your imagination (and taste buds!) go wild!

What Brand Brownie Mix Should I Use?

You may use any brownie mix that your heart desires! Just be sure to stick around the 18 oz. boxes as the measurements of this particular recipe requires that size. Some boxes are more, some are less – but standard is around the 18 oz. mark.

Some of our favorite brownie mix brands include Betty Crocker and Ghiradelli.
