Peppermint Brownie Cookies Recipe

We only need a handful of ingredients to make these cookies. And that’s just how I like it. Simple, quick and delicious! So, let’s go ahead and make the brownie cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Pillsbury Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese (1/2 block), room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • M&M™ White Peppermint Candies

First, Preheat the Oven

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Then line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

Second, Mix the Ingredients

Mix the brownie mix, melted (and cooled) butter, softened cream cheese, egg and peppermint extract into a bowl. Then, mix it with a stiff spoon. Make sure to mix until all of the brownie mix powder is well combined.

At first, it wont seem to mix well. But keep going by using a folding a pressing technique—it’ll mix up great!

Third, Prepare the Cookies

Drop batter by the tablespoon full onto a parchment lined baking sheet. You’ll want them to be two inches apart.

Try to make the edges as round as possible so they have a nice round cookie shape. You can use a cookie scoop to assist if you have one! If not, don’t worry too much about it. They’ll come out just fine!

Lastly, Bake the Peppermint Brownie Cookies

Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes.

Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven. Then, immediately place three M&M’s™White Peppermint candies on each. Press them into the cookies slightly.

Allow the cookies to cool down for 2 minutes on the baking sheet. Then move them to a cooling rack.
