Brownie Cookies



Have you ever had an intense craving for some seriously sweet chocolate? I did this past week, and in my search found this recipe on thechurchcook.blogspot.com. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for!


These cookies have the soft and chewy texture of a brownie, but in a convenient cookie form.


They are quite easy to make, and after the first bite you will be absolutely blown away! Consider yourself warned.


I made about 3 dozen, but I think mine were a little large (not that I am complaining!).  The original post can be found here.


Make these now!


Brownie Cookies

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (unsalted)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl then set aside
  2. In a double boiler (I use a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water), melt the 2 cups of chocolate chips with the butter
  3. After they are completely melted, remove the bowl from the pot of water, and set aside for a few minutes to set
  4. Beat together the eggs and vanilla until bubbly
  5. Add the sugar to the egg/vanilla mixture, and mix thoroughly
  6. Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg/vanilla/sugar mixture, and again mix thoroughly
  7. Add the flour mixture, and mix until the batter is just coming together
  8. Fold in the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips
  9. Set the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge for 30 - 45 minutes to allow it to chill 
  10. While the dough is chilling in the fridge, preheat the oven to 350 F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper
  11. Roll the dough into small balls (about 1 to 1 1/2 tsps each) and place on the parchment paper (Note: the cookies will spread and flatten out, so leave about 2 inches between each cookie dough all)
  12. Bake for 8 - 12 minutes, or until the edges just start to firm up and the tops begin to crack
  13. Let cool, and enjoy with an ice cold glass of milk!
