Rejoice Chocolate Lovers, my Chocolate Brownie Cookies recipe is here. Make cookies with the best parts of a fudgy brownie and a soft, crispy outside.
What do you get if you cross a Brownie with a Cookie?? This INSANELY good treat!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

You know what’s better than a cookie and more irresistible than a brownie? It’s my Chocolate Brownie Cookies! This cookie recipe is a game changer. Imagine the chocolate fudge center you get from my Best Ever Brownie Recipe and the crispy, soft baked outside you get in my Crazy Cookie Dough merged into one. My Chocolate Brownie Cookies are perfect for all kinds or celebrations and occasions whether you’re doing some holiday baking or looking to give someone a very generous and chocolatey gift.

These Chocolate Brownie Cookies are so simple to make. This recipe is made in one bowl with no mixers or fancy equipment–that’s what I call Bold Baking! The magic of these cookies comes from the combination of white and brown sugar which add lots of depth to the flavor and additional chew from the molasses in the brown sugar. But really what makes these cookies off the charts is one whole cup of good quality cocoa powder as well as chocolate chips. If you’re a chocoholic then these cookies are made for you.

You never have to choose between a brownie and a cookie again, instead give my Chocolate Brownie Cookies a whirl. Be warned they are big, BOLD, rich and delicious!

Rejoice Chocolate Lovers, my Chocolate Brownie Cookies recipe is here. Make cookies with the best parts of a fudgy brownie and a soft, crispy outside.
Author: adapted from YammiesNoshery.com
Servings: 12 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) white sugar
  • 1/2 cup (3oz/90g) brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons (3oz/90g) butter
  • 2 large eggs*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (4oz/120g) cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (3oz/90g) chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Combine the sugars and butter in a microwavable bowl (or in a pot on the stove). Heat until the butter has melted. Remove from heat and beat well with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes. (I tried doing this recipe without an electric mixer and my cookies came out really flat)
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and beat with hand mixer for 2 minutes (this, along with melting the butter and sugar, helps create a crackly crust on top of the cookies).
  • Stir together the cocoa powder and salt and add them to the batter. Beat for another 30 seconds. Lastly fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be soft but refrigerate it for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180oC). When the cookie dough is stiff scoop 12 cookies onto a baking tray lined with parchment. Round the dough in your hands and press to flatten down just a little. Toss a few more chocolate chips on top it you wish.
  • Bake cookies for about 12-13 minutes. When baked they might look 'uncooked' but they are not, they are perfectly fudgy on the inside.
  • Set aside to cool down and enjoy fresh. Store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

* You can always replace the eggs with one of my egg substitutes. Get my Egg Substitutes Chart.

Another yummy winner! I added in some finely chopped walnuts and topped each one with a few rough chopped walnuts – soooo delicious!! I think it is worth pointing out to folks who are finding these aren’t rising to make sure you whip up those eggs really well and chill that dough! The eggs are the only thing in this recipe that will give your cookies some height and shape, so whip ’em good ladies and gents for great results! 🙂

Dear Gemma,
I have tried many of your recipes and have been really pleased. This one though is really soupy. You told someone it might be the flour they are using. I think I missed something, I don’t see flour listed in the ingredients? Am I supposed to use flour and how much?
Thank you

Hello Gemma. I did try the recipe. They were so fudgy that they didn’t even bothered to come out of parchment paper as a proper cookie. Solutions?? 😞

Thank you Gemma yet again for another star recipe. I have uploaded the pic and want to specify here that you make all the recipes super easy- it’s a kids play! These cookies were baked by my 13 year old boy and he is a die hard fan of your recipes. Thank you so much and loads of love to your little one:)

Worst recipe ever tried, followed video & ingredients exactly. The cookies melted together like 2 big pancake. It has NO flour. Crazy. Do not waste your time, ingredients or money on this one.
