  • 1 18.3-ounce box brownie mix*
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup water or coffee
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine the brownie mix, egg, and water or coffee in a medium bowl. Stir with a rubber spatula until well combined. Mixture will be thick.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips. Shape the mixture into balls of about 2 tablespoons of dough and arrange 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies look set on top and around the edges. Cool on the baking sheets for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. (A thin metal spatula is really helpful to remove them from the baking sheets intact.)
  5. Uneaten cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes

*I used Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix

Optional mix-ins

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (the salt cuts through the sweet of the mix a little bit)
  • Feel free to substitute nuts or other baking chips for the chocolate chips
