Chocolate Brownie Cookies are loaded with chocolatey goodness that's hard to resist and the best part is you most likely have most of the ingredients in your pantry. To make chocolate brownie cookies, you'll need flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 12 ounces of baking chocolate bars. Chocolate baking bars can be found in the baking aisle next to the chocolate chips.

With all the rain we've been getting here in upstate NY this week, it's been the perfect opportunity to bake. There's nothing quite like cozying up on a gloomy day with freshly baked chocolate brownie cookies and a Lifetime movie.

Sometimes, the simplest things like baking cookies bring the most relaxation. As the oven warmed up, it took away the damp chill from the rain outside, while the comforting scent of chocolate brownie cookies baking filled the house with coziness.

Chill The Batter In The Freezer

Similar to the fudgiest brownies, these cookies use minimal flour, resulting in a stickier dough. To make handling easier, follow the instructions to freeze the dough in a shallow container until firm before shaping it into cookies. If the dough gets too soft, simply return it to the freezer until it firms up again before continuing.

Why does chocolate brownie cookie batter have to chill?

This chocolate brownie cookie dough is the consistency of thick brownie batter. Chilling the dough firms it up making it a breeze to scoop onto the cookie sheet.

Tips for Success
  • Don't overmix the dough once you've added the dry ingredients, as this can result in tough cookies.

  • For extra fudgy cookies, slightly underbake them and cool them completely on the baking sheet before transferring them.

  • Feel free to customize the recipe by adding nuts, dried fruit, or a sprinkle of sea salt on top before baking.

12oz of baking chocolate, broken into chunks

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

4 large eggs, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 (12-ounce) bag of semisweet chocolate chips

How to make chocolate brownie cookies

Step 1 - In a microwave-safe bowl melt the chopped chocolate bars and butter together. Stir every 40 seconds until smooth Allow the mixture to cool slightly before using.

Step 2 - In a separate large bowl, use a handheld electric mixer to beat the eggs and sugar at medium speed until they become thick and pale, which typically takes about 5 minutes. Then, beat in the vanilla and salt.

Step 3 - Fold the melted chocolate into the mixture using a rubber spatula, then gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.

Step 4 - Transfer the batter into a shallow baking dish, cover it and place it in the freezer until it becomes well chilled and firm, typically around 40 minutes to an hour.

Step 5 - Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place 2 tablespoon scoops of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, ensuring they are about 2 inches apart.

Step 6 - Bake for 10 minutes until the cookies are dry around the edges and cracked on top. (Oven temperatures vary) Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before serving.
