Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 2 dozen


  • 1 bag brownie mix dry ingredients only
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chunks or chips

  3. Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes.

  4. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. If desired, add sprinkles while cookies are still hot.

One Of The Best Cookie Making Tips You Will Ever Receive: 

In case you missed it in the recipe instructions above, the secret to making chunky, fluffy cookies is all in the scoop!

Instead of scooping out ONE scoop and moving on, scoop out a second mound of dough and place it ON TOP of the first.

It should look like two scoops of ice cream. This will help the cookie stay chunky and pretty! Since you're working with extra dough, be sure to leave at least 2″ around each cookie dough mound.
