More About This Recipe
  • Because these peanut butter brownie cookies get a jumpstart from brownie mix, the dough will be much wetter and stickier than typical cookie dough. The easiest way to drop the cookie dough in even, rounded tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheet will be with a small cookie or ice cream scoop. Don’t have one of these handy? Grab two spoons and scoop the dough with one, and gently scrap the dough off of the spoon with the other onto the cookie sheet. We love brownies turned into cookies. Want to turn brownies into pies? Or add fun flavor twists like mint or salted caramel? all of these recipes, plus more.
