Rich and fudgy brownie cookies with peppermint bark in every bite.

We’ve officially reached our last recipe before Christmas! So I thought we’d better make it a good one…
We’re alllllllll about the cookies in my family. And one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes is for brownie mix cookies. They are so fudgy and rich and just like eating a perfectly portioned out brownie for one. Basically AH-MAZING.
I’m bringing my favorite cookie into the Christmas realm by adding huge chunks of peppermint bark and my much beloved Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Bits (see this post). 
You are going to LOVE this recipe. Simple to make, fun and festive, and absolutely INSANELY delicious.

Peppermint Bark Brownie Cookies

Rich, fudgy brownie cookies with peppermint bark in every bite!
prep time: cook time: total time:


  • 18.25 ounce box brownie mix (JUST the dry mix)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Bits
  • 1 cup peppermint bark pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat all the ingredients (except the peppermint bark) into a smooth dough.
  3. Scoop two tablespoons of dough at a time into mounds on an ungreased cookie sheet (see below for a step-by-step photo tutorial on my scooping method), keep dough about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 9 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and give cookie sheet a light tap on the top of the oven or counter top to release some air from the cookies (which creates those nice crackly tops). Press pieces of peppermint bark into the tops of each cookie.
  6. Let cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
