Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Chocolate Brownie Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, chocolate gooiness on the inside. Just like a brownie.

I am here to admit that I have a serious addiction. I feel it is best to face my addiction, confront it and accept the fact that I have this weakness. My addiction? Yes, it’s chocolate. That and tortilla chips, but I will address that one another day! A couple weeks ago my husband asked me to bake some special cookies for a thank-you gift. I love using these opportunities to try something new, you know bake the sweet stuff and give it away. I decided to browse through the many Blog feeds I subscribe to and that is when I found this baby from Brown-Eyed Baker calling my name, so sweetly and so softly, “Laura! Laura! You must bake me! Laura? Are you listening to me????”

How could I say no to the Chocolate Brownie Cookies? I mean, the name says it all, right?

I rummaged through the pantry and found the ten bags of chocolate chips I had stocked up on during the holidays. Come on, the Christmas sales were selling everything for $1.88/bag or less! I had to stock up for special occasions like this!

I used my dark chocolate chips to melt for the batter, but I thought it would nice to use white-chocolate chips to stir in and add some contrast. I know, I know, white chocolate doesn’t have cocoa and I shouldn’t technically be addicted to it, but alas, I love white chocolate. Maybe they should have called it something else?

The batter is not as stiff as a normal cookie batter. I gave my special baking prayer as I scooped up heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet. You know the prayer, “Please work, please work! You better turn out [email protected]! A lot of chocolate went into this!!!!”

This recipe is super easy. The hardest part was letting them cool off in the pan. I love brownies and cookies warm and right out of the oven.

And do they taste like brownies? ABSOLUTELY! You have the outside flakey crust of a brownie, and a moist chocolatey brownie center. Knowing I had to share this with all of you, I returned to Brown-Eyed Baker, followed the many links and referrals for this recipe and found it’s proud creator, Fanny from Foodbeam. Since she’s blogging and baking in England her measurements were in grams, and since I didn’t have the patience to convert it all myself, I used Brown-Eyed Baker’s handy measurements.

So, fellow chocolate addicts, hold your head high and bake up these wonderful nutella cookies. Now I wish I didn’t give all of these away…

    I followed the recipe exactly like it says but my battery was way too thin no way it was gonna scoop out just a runny mess I finally just poured the batter in a 8×8 baking dish and made brownies instead very delicious though

    • Hi Tony! The batter is more on the liquid side, not a traditional cookie batter. I looked at the other website where I found the recipe and some commenters said they refrigerated the dough for an hour or two and then scooped and baked the cookies. But, if you look at my picture of he cookie dough on the baking sheet, the batter is not thick or solid. Glad to know that the same batter is great as a brownie!
