Between Little Debbie and Hostess, I’m not sure which snacks I ate more of growing up. While I was a big fan of the Little Debbie Nutty Bars and Snack Cakes and the Hostess Cupcakes and Ding Dongs, the Cosmic Brownies from Little Debbie seems to be a favorite in my house right now.

The soft, chewy brownie topped with fudgy frosting and colorful candy pieces finds its way into my kids’ lunch boxes more often than I like to admit.

Now, you know our obsession with Crumbl Cookies, right? Well, they introduced a delicious Galaxy Brownie Cookie which is a twist on the favorite Little Debbie snack a while back. As soon as I saw the giant, fudgy brownie cookie topped with a chocolate ganache and sprinkled with chocolate candies, I was in heaven.

With Crumbl’s rotating cookie menu, they don’t offer the Cosmic Brownie Cookie every week. Boooo.

So, we make our own. Yep, today I’m sharing with you how to make your own delicious Cosmic Brownie Cookies that are probably better than Crumbl’s version. You be the judge.

WHAT ARE CRUMBL COOKIES?

Crumbl is a rather new cookie bakery that was started by two cousins in Logan, Utah in 2017. Cousins, Sawyer Hemsley and Jason McGowan set out to create the world’s best chocolate chip cookie. After some trial and error, testing ingredients and baking methods, Sawyer, Jason and their family opened up the first Crumbl store in Utah when Sawyer was still attending Utah State University.

Crumbl’s delicious cookies wouldn’t be complete without their iconic pink packaging! Crumbl’s boxes were designed to perfectly fit each Crumbl cookie side-by-side, whether in a 4-pack, 6-pack, or 12-pack box. The “4-pack” pink box — the brand’s most popular and notable — was developed in 2018, shortly after Crumbl sold its very first cookie.

Since opening its doors in 2017, Crumbl Cookies has expanded to over 200 bakeries in 32 states nationwide, making it the fastest-growing cookie company in the nation.

7. Divide cookie dough into 12 equal sized cookie dough “blobs” and place them on your prepared baking sheet. NOTE: The dough will look more like brownie batter than cookie dough. THAT IS PERFECT! Put 6 cookies per baking sheet. (This recipe makes BIG cookies, so if you’d like smaller cookies, divide dough into 18 cookies.)

Absolutely. If you make the recipe as is, just divide the dough into 18 cookies. That will give you a more manageable sized cookie.

Depending on the location, prices can be $4 per cookie, $13 for a Crumbl box of four and $33 for a party box of a dozen
