If you’ve been following Call Me PMc for a while, you know that I have a series that I test and review Pound Cakes. I’ve also have a collection of Cobblers. However, cobblers vary so much, it’s really difficult to compare them. Therefore, I test, eat and share those recipes. This year I started testing and comparing brownie recipes.

Coincidently, Cosmic Brownies are my oldest sons’ very favorite snack. I needed to prove to myself him that I could make a brownie just as good. Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies Recipe are just as good. They are phenomenal. The base has both melted chocolate and cocoa. It’s rich and dense. They’re not cakey, but they’re also not chewy like some brownies are. They’re just a nice dense, creamy texture.

Of course, Cosmic Brownies wouldn’t be Cosmic Brownies without the thin layer for chocolate frosting and candy-coated chips, now would they? I found candy-coated chips at Amazon and Walmart.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Chocolate Frosting


  • Spray a 15x10x1 inch jelly-roll pan with non-stick spray. (If you don't have this size pan, you can use a 9x13 inch pan, but it will cook longer, 26 to 29 minutes.)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Melt 1 cup butter and semisweet chocolate. I like to melt it in the microwave. Microwave at 30-second intervals stirring in between each time until mixture is smooth.
  • Allow to cool slightly.
  • Whisk sugar, flour, cocoa, eggs, vanilla, and salt together.
  • Add sugar mixture to chocolate mixture and whisk until combined.
  • Pour batter into pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 22 to 25 minutes.
  • While brownies are baking, make the Chocolate Frosting. < click for recipe
  • Drizzle warm brownies with Chocolate Frosting and sprinkle evenly with candy-coated chips.

  1. These are fantastic! My husband and father-in-law both commented they taste exactly like the brownies from a former bakery in Indianapolis they loved. Thanks for sharing the great recipes (I am including the frosting in my review!). 🙂

      1. I can’t find, nor click on “Recipe for Chocolate Frosting is here”. It’s not highlighted and I really want to try making these, but they wouldn’t be the same without the frosting. Could you please either post the actual frosting recipe in your reply, or email it to me? Thanks!

  2. I want to make this recipe but it won’t let me pull up the recipe for the chocolate frosting. Could you please post it? Thank you!

    1. Hey Heather, sorry about that. I don’t know why it won’t let me add that link in the recipe, but I added it in the post just above.
