  • Sounds yummy! question about the boxed brownie mix — if it calls for the addition of an egg, do you do that in addition to the egg the recipe calls for?

  • I just made these. To answer Suzy’s question, you don’t go by what the brownie directions are – go by these directions so only 1 egg. When sized to make 2 dozen cookies, mine took 15 minutes to be done. I only cooked the first batch 12 minutes and they’re a bit under-done perhaps but still yummy (especially warm) and am sure will be eaten with delight – LOL. I did preheat the oven and I have a thermometer in there so am quite sure the temperature was indeed 350. To get 2 dozen cookies, roll the dough into balls a little bigger than a ping-pong ball. Oh – and I didn’t have the caramel pieces so I used Heath English Toffee bits. These are great cookies and it doesn’t get any easier.

  • There is no way this recipe is correct. My “dough” was not even a dough, there was not nearly enough liquid in this recipe to even form an actual dough, the mix was so dry that nothing actually stuck together (by this I mean the pecans, caramel bits and chocolate chips were all loose) . I knew something didn’t seem right but followed the recipe regardless. Regardless, the cookies didn’t flatten whatsoever like they are supposed to (after 10 minutes in the oven they were still the exact same shape that they were when I put them in.) Had to throw the whole batch away. I checked that my brownie mix was not expired and that I had definitely followed the recipe correctly and I had. This recipe is a FAIL

    • So sorry they didn’t turn out for you. The dough is thick but held together nicely. My family still talks about how good they were. Next time I make them I’ll bake them the recommended time but let them sit on the pan once out of the oven for 3 minutes to continue baking.

    • Not all brownie mixes will be the same so you might need a bit more oil and/or water. Just add a tiny bit of each until consistency is correct.

  • I haven’t tried these yet, I intend to after my next grocery trip, but wanted to say thank you for the recipe. I’ve been looking for one since I got addicted to some cookies I found in the deli section at Kroger. Private Selection gourmet cookies “Turtle Brownie”…the white choc macadamia ones are amazing too but the turtle ones are just wow. They’re $5 a box tho, and there’s only 5 cookies. I was going to make them at home this week but wanted to check Pinterest first, it’s nice to have an actual recipe for first attempts!

  • I made these today and I had to substitute salted caramel chips for the caramel bits. Do you think thats ok? They look so big in the cookie, i guess I should have chopped them up. Havent tried them yet but I had to flatten them with a spatula when I took them out of the oven. They were very bulky looking.

  • I finally made these cookies. The dough is very stiff. I did us a cookie scoop, which worked well. After struggling To get the cookies off the first two pans, after baling 15 minutes, I used parchment paper. Much easier! The cookie didn’t stick and they stayed together instead of breaking apart.

  • I just saw this recipe on here today, went out and purchased the ingredients. I read some of the reviews, and saw where someone said the mixture was not right, so I added a little more oil and water and got the right consistency! They turned out Great, my daughter and will be making these cookies for her Senior picnic at school!!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  • Can you please indicate which brand of brownie mix specifically you are using and what size (weight listed on box)? Please and thank you

    • Hi Crystal, the original author of the recipe isn’t available, but I’d use the Pillsbury Family Size Brownie Mix (19.5 ounces). Hope that helps!
