Show of hands — who's ever brought box-mix brownies to a party and not taken home a completely empty tray at the end of the night? Nobody? That's what we thought — everyone LOVEs brownies, and frankly there's something about the store-bought mixes that are just exactly what you want. They're fudgy (or cakey, if that's your thing!), they're nostalgic, and they're so easy to throw together.

We're not saying you can't bring a tray of brownies to your Christmas celebration, but Christmas is kind of all about the cookies, so we've got another idea that will be just as successful as brownies, but on-theme. (You know how we love a theme here at Food Network.) Brownie Mix Cookies!

You probably have everything you need in your pantry to make this recipe right now. Grab that box of brownie mix you picked up on sale that one time, one stick of butter, one egg and some chocolate chunks (chips work great, too!). Mix and bake. That's truly it. You've won Christmas in just a few minutes!

And because these are incredibly easy, they're the perfect recipe to make while trying out the all-new Food Network Kitchen app. Cook along with culinary producer Vivian Chan in her class on these cookies — you'll get so many cookie tips, hear answers to all your cookie-prep questions, and have a lot of fun (it's a great recipe to make with kids too, so everyone gather 'round the app!). This cookie proves that even the simplest recipes are chock-full of cooking lessons that you probably didn't even know you were learning — and those are the bulding blocks toward becoming confident in the kitchen. Download and sign up for Food Network Kitchen to join us this holiday season and kick-off 2020 with this new, exciting way to approach cooking. And lots more cookies. 😊
