How to Make Brownie Cookies.

These scratch cookies are just as easy to make as my homemade Red Velvet Brownies, and you won’t even miss the convenience of the box version. You can easily whip up these chewy chocolate brownie cookies in about 25 minutes, total.

Preheat the oven to 350. Melt the chocolates and set aside. Combine baking soda, flour, and salt and set aside. Mix the eggs, and vanilla at medium speed. Gradually add flour mixture until well combined, followed by the chocolate and finally the pecans. Spoon 2 tablespoons of dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets, spaced 1 inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes..

What can I say, I really do prefer my no mix recipe to both the Betty Crocker brownie cookies AND the Ghirardelli brownie cookies.

Can You Make Brownie Cookies Ahead of Time?

Chocolate chip brownie cookies (yes, they go by many names), are great for any cookie worthy occasion. Not exactly sure when you’re going to serve them…. No problem here. You can whip this dough up and refrigerate it days before you set out to bake it with no loss in flavor. Remember to cover the batter tightly. You may be tempted to eat all the batter, but remember…raw eggs! And, you can freeze it for months. That said, don’t let that dough sit too long!

How Do You Freeze Brownie Cookies?

You can freeze my brownie chocolate chip cookies uncooked for 6 – 12 months in a freezer safe container. When you are ready to bake them, you can do so by thawing the batter and baking them when thawed completely. If you’ve portioned them out before freezing, you can pop them right on a cookie tray and into a preheated oven!

You can also freeze brownie cookies after they’re made, but you probably won’t have that many leftovers. Simply place them into a freezer safe bag and take them out when you’re ready to enjoy. Microwaving them until gooey makes for a delightful little snack!
