About The Recipe

It’s finally here! Our favorite cookie recipe to date.. It’s genuinely SO. GOOD. Plus, it’s the perfect easy bake for whenever you’re craving a bite of chocolate. We spent days perfecting this recipe and I promise you’ll love it.

Honestly, I’m just so excited to finally share this recipe with all of you!

This idea started a few weeks ago when we shared our ultimate fudge-y brownie. They were just SO good that we couldn’t leave it there. My mom and I have been kicking around another cookie recipe.

It feels like FOREVER since we last shared a traditional cookie recipe and we’ve been trying to think of something new. They’re always a fun challenge! And, while these cookies are SUPER simple to make, they gave us quite a bit of trouble when developing the recipe.

We wanted very specific results. Crinkly top (a must-have for any brownie) and a fudge-y center! It seemed like a simple task when we started, but it took DAYS for us to finally get the results we were after.

The secret? Scooping and baking the cookies immediately after making the dough! You honestly cannot let these cookies sit and firm up before baking. You gotta move quickly to achieve that gorgeous shiny crinkly top. Though, I will admit, I thoroughly enjoyed testing this recipe.

We have had SO many brownie cookies in and out of our oven and it’s been the best. Not only has the kitchen smelled amazing, but every single one has tasted delicious.

But, if I’m being honest, this iteration is the best! The cookies are not only double chocolate (which means extra chocolate-y!), but every bite really tastes like your favorite brownie. So. GOOD.

How To Make Brownie Cookies

Step 1: Combine dry ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.

Step 2: Melt chocolate and butter

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and chocolate. Melt over low heat, stirring continuously, until smooth. Set aside.

Step 3: Make the batter

Combine the eggs, sugars, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low for about 30 seconds to combine. Increase the speed to high and beat for 10 minutes.

Stir in the chocolate mixture.

Add flour mixture and mix only to combine.

Step 4: Scoop and bake

Immediately drop by scoopfuls onto prepared pans and place in oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until done.

What’s The Best Chocolate To Use

For this recipe, you will need dutch process cocoa powder! When it comes to the actual chocolate, we highly recommend using a high quality bittersweet chocolate (like Ghirardelli!). It will melt better and give you a better texture in your cookie.

Mix-In Ideas

Is it really a brownie if you don’t add a few mix-ins? Here are a few of our favorites to toss into the batter before baking!

  • Chopped Nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans)
  • Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
