Brownie Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

We were invited to dinner with friends at their home and I wasn't about to go without cookies, because, well, cookies. Even though I made another bar dessert, I knew cookies would be expected. And since chocolate and peanut butter is always a win, of course I went with those. But not just any combo, a fudgy, brownie-like cookie dotted with peanut butter chips. And would it really get any easier than starting with a boxed brownie mix? Sometimes when you get invited somewhere at the last minute, you have to cut corners. And no one will fault you for that when the result is this delicious. Let's just say I'm glad these were easy to make because I certainly didn't eat enough of them while at dinner and most of the leftovers went to our friends.

Poking around for a quick and easy cookie to make, I found this brownie mix cookie recipe from Jen's Favorite Cookies. Jen used white chocolate chips, which I'm sure great, but I knew peanut butter chips were the way to go for this crowd, and I doubled up adding a full cup to the mix. The mix is simple and just one bowl. Seriously, this doesn't get any easier. Need last minute cookies for Santa (or just for your own belly)? Here you go!

Brownie Peanut Butter Chip Cookies


2 eggs
6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons water
18 ounce box brownie mix
1/2 cup flour
1 cup peanut butter chips

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil and water until combined.

Stir in brownie mix and flour until moistened and a thick batter forms.

Fold in peanut butter chips.

Using a medium cookie scoop, drop dough onto parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes until set. Turn baking sheet 180 degrees halfway through. If using more than one sheet at a time, rotate positions in the oven for more even baking.

Remove from oven and cool on pans for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Happy Baking,
The Cookie Princess
