How to make Easy Chocolate Peppermint Fudge Brownie Mix Cookies

Chocolate recipes have always been tough for me. I never quite know which kind of chocolate or what to add to make them extra chocolatey good. So this brownie mix recipe is perfect! Start off with the basics and dress it up with peppermint to create a mouth-watering holiday cookie!

I love making cake mix cookies, but wasn’t sure if brownie mix cookies were a thing or where to start. So I dug around and found some good inspiration from this brownie mix cookie recipe and then adapted for the result I wanted. I’m so happy with the results I got and my kids ate them right up! Win Win!


  • Fudge Brownie Box mix – Pick your favorite! I used Betty Crocker
  • 4-5 Tbs Flour (I’m at high altitude, so sometimes more flour works best)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tbs Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Tsp Peppermint Extract
  • Chocolate Fudge frosting + peppermint extract to taste
    (about 1-2 Tsp per full can)
  • Peppermint candies – crushed


You can adjust the peppermint in this recipe to your own taste preferences. When we mixed it all together, it tasted like a scrumptious chocolate mint candy!

  • Mix all the ingredients together until blended. It will look similar to regular brownie mix.
  • Spoon out single cookie servings onto a cookie sheet, spacing about 2″ apart.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 6-8 minutes. You don’t want to over bake as the cookies will harden as they cool. For a nice, soft, moist brownie-like texture, less baking is better.
  • Let the cookies cool to the touch and then add the frosting with the back of a spoon to get the nice swirl look.
  • Top with crushed peppermint candies.

Tip: Store these cookies in an airtight container. The cookies will soften into amazingly chewy brownie bites. You’re not going to want to share, so make 2 batches!

When these cookies are baked just right, they should look like a similar texture to traditional brownies when you break them in half. Don’t you want a bite now?

Tip: I have found that adding the frosting with a spoon is an easier way to get that fun whipped swirl look. Just load up the back of the spoon with frosting and then spread on the cookie in a swirl motion, lifting the spoon up in the center of the cookie.
