Welcome to your weekend recipe! This is a super fun and easy one for you – or, maybe, hand it over to the kids? By the looks of my grocery store shelves almost a month ago, people stocked up on brownie mix! There were only a couple left on the shelves! I personally have at least 3 boxes right now. I usually keep one on hand during normal times. There is something really comforting about a brownie made from a mix, don’t you think?

Did you know that you can make cookies out of a mix? You probably do, but this was big news when I learned this from a student several years ago. She did this for her demonstration speech – they had to teach a skill all in Spanish and demonstrate it on video or live in class. Lots of kids did cooking demos and the students were not hating it when they got to eat the final product in class!

Here is what you need:

Brownie Mix – simply follow the package directions but it will call for the following items:


vegetable oil


1/4 cup flour

Simply add 1/4 cup flour and then drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes – watch because your oven might be hotter than mine.

The result seen at top is a chewy delicious cookie! You could make ice cream sandwiches out of these, too!

Happy Easter tomorrow!

  1. Great idea! I will definitely try it! No, I’ve never heard of it!
    I hope your Easter is fine! We had MIL here all day yesterday, we spent most of the day outside but had dinner inside. That’s not what the government recommended, but it felt right for us.
    My daughters made a very American Easter cake; first time we did butter cream – what a mess it was to do the dishes! This goo was all over the place…! The cake was good, but Swedes normally use whipped cream for cakes, and I prefer that…
    Happy Easter!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you had a nice day. I messed up my frosting badly. Whipped cream for cakes is done here sometimes and much lighter. Are you back at school today?
