Ingredients You'll Need

  • Oil: 1/2 cup of a light, neutral oil like vegetable or canola to keep the cookies moist.

  • Chocolate Chunks: 1 cup, either pre-packaged or from a chopped chocolate bar or chocolate chips.

  • Water: 2 tablespoons, to adjust the batter consistency if needed.


Now, you're all set to follow the step-by-step process to create these irresistible Air Fryer Brownie Mix Cookies, a true chocolate lover's dream come true.



How to Make Air Fryer Brownie Mix Cookies

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a bowl, combine all the ingredients - brownie mix, eggs, oil, chocolate chunks, and a touch of water. You can use a spoon, hand mixer, or stand mixer for this step.

  2. Adjust Consistency: The dough should be firm enough to roll into small balls. If it's too thick, you can gradually add a tablespoon of water at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

  3. Form Cookies: Roll the dough into small balls or use a cookie scoop to create uniform-sized cookies. Place them on a parchment-lined air fryer basket. Keep in mind that you may need to work in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.

  4. Air Fry: Set your air fryer to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and air fry the cookies for 4-6 minutes. You'll want them to be firm on the sides and slightly soft in the middle but not gooey. For firmer cookies, you can extend the cooking time by 2-3 minutes.

  5. Cool and Enjoy: Let the cookies cool for about 3-4 minutes in the air fryer basket, and then transfer them to a cooling rack. Repeat the process until you've baked all the cookies.



Oven Option


If you don't have an air fryer, don't worry! You can still make these delightful cookies in the oven. Here's how:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Prepare Dough: Follow the same steps for combining the ingredients and adjusting the consistency as mentioned above.

  3. Bake: Roll the dough into balls, place them on a parchment-lined baking tray, and bake in the preheated oven for 8-9 minutes, or until they start to crack on top. As with the air fryer method, ensure the cookies are firm on the sides and slightly chewy in the middle.

  4. Cool and Enjoy: Allow the cookies to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.



Pro Tips for Perfect Cookies

  • Different brownie mixes can yield slightly different results, so feel free to experiment.

  • If the dough is too wet, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it reaches the right consistency.

  • Conversely, if the dough is too dry, add a tablespoon of water at a time to achieve the desired consistency.

  • To ensure even cooking, use parchment paper or a silicone mat in your air fryer basket.



Delicious Variations


Get creative with your Air Fryer Brownie Mix Cookies by trying out these variations:

  • Add Nuts: Stir in your favorite nuts, ranging from a quarter cup to half a cup, for an added crunch.

  • Swap Chocolate: Replace the chocolate chunks with your favorite candy pieces, candy-coated chocolates, peanut butter chips, or other delightful surprises.

  • Experiment with Mixes: There's a wide variety of brownie mixes available, so don't hesitate to try different ones to discover your favorite.

  • Pair with Ice Cream: Use these brownie mix cookies to create delicious ice cream sandwiches or serve them alongside a scoop of your favorite ice cream.



Prep and Storage

  • Prep Ahead: You can prepare the cookie dough and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours before baking in the air fryer or oven.

  • Storage: Store your baked cookies in an airtight container on the counter, and they'll stay fresh for up to a week.

  • Freeze: If you have leftover cookies or want to save some for later, wrap them in plastic wrap and seal them in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. You can also freeze the unbaked cookie dough. Simply scoop the dough onto a tray, freeze until firm, and then transfer the frozen dough balls to a freezer bag. When you're ready to bake, follow the same cooking instructions, adding an extra minute or two to the cooking time.
