Fudgy Brownie Cookies

Oh my heavens, Fudgy Brownie Cookies are awesome. They are so fudgy and chocolaty you won’t want to stop eating them. Seriously. They taste like brownies but in cookie form. They’re triple-dosed with chocolate. I used Ghirardelli chocolate, Hershey’s cocoa, and Hershey’s Toll House chocolate chunks. Did I say they’re chocolaty? Yes, they have a really strong chocolate flavor.

I’ve made these amazing cookies three times in the past two weeks. The first time I made them for company. I asked what kind of dessert they wanted and our guests said “cookies.” Okay, what kind of cookies? Chocolate Cookies. Okay, do you want icing on those cookies? No icing. So I set myself to find what looked like a good Chocolate Cookie recipe and found these. The company we invited over for dinner had a teenage boy who loved the cookies. So when he was taking care of our dogs while we were in Pennsylvania visiting grandchildren (the following week), I made up another batch for him!

Then, when we were in Pennsylvania, my 4-year-old grandson wanted to help. He stirred everything and even put the scoops of cookie dough on the cookie sheet. Actually I was amazed at how well he did. My daughter-in-law says he loves to help in the kitchen. He sure can help a lot better than I ever could at that age. We made one pan of cookies with a large one-quarter cup scoop and another batch with the small 1-2 teaspoon scoop (because that one was easier for him to use). The larger cookies took about two minutes longer to bake.

Without fail everyone loved this cookie. Let me say this about them. You do need to chill the dough or they can become crumbly. (This is according to others who tried the recipe). I made it three times and never had a bit of problem with the recipe. Also, this is not a super-sweet cookie. If you want your cookies sweeter, I recommend using sweet chocolate and adding an additional 1/4 cup sugar to the ingredients. These are so good hot out of the oven.

If you’re looking for a fantastic cookie to make–especially with the holidays coming up, I highly recommend Fudgy Brownie Cookies. Don’t plan on having any leftovers. These cookies go fast!

I used these ingredients.

Melt butter and Ghirardelli chocolate in the microwave-safe dish in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave another 30 seconds and stir again. Microwave another 10-20 seconds until chocolate is melted and stir again. Cool slightly and scrape mixture with a rubber spatula into a large mixing bowl.

Stir sugar into chocolate mixture. Then add cocoa, egg, vanilla, salt and baking soda.

Stir to combine.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chocolate chunks.

Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Chill dough 30 minutes. Bake at 350 about 15-16 minutes for large cookies and 13-15 minutes for smaller ones.
