Brownie Cookie-TuttleKitchen

Chocolate fudgy brownie cookies! Are you obsessed with chocolate? Can you not resist chewy cookies or fudgy brownies? Well, then this is the cookie for you! It has all the best parts of a cookie and a brownie, in one perfect sized treat. Brownie cookies are a little more complicated, but still doable. Just remember, baking is a science, and there are rules. As long as you measure everything out perfectly and follow the directions in order, yes the order matters, you will always win.

My daughter, Ayla loves these cookies, she told me they are her all time favorite Christmas treat! I'm trying to release everyone's faves this year, that way you can all treat yo selves. Fudgy Brownie Cookies do have a few more ingredients, but don't let this sway your decision to make them. The extra work you have to put into these, is 100% worth the effort. Full disclosure, Nick, Ayla and I may have finished these in two days, just us. So get a glass of milk ready, because these are incredibly rich!

I got this recipe from and it turned out perfect, so I haven't adjusted most of the ingredients or directions. These are truly some of the best cookies we've ever had, and I can't think of much that could make them better. Maybe a caramel drizzle over the top? Maybe 🙂

Preheat the oven to 350°, and get a medium sauce pan ready by putting it over a low heat. Add one stick of butter and 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips to the pan. Stir this constantly until both ingredients are completely melted and smooth, then set this aside to cool slightly.

Using a stand mixer preferably, add the eggs, sugars, and vanilla to a large bowl. Beat this until the mixture is smooth, then add baking powder and salt, continue to beat mixture for FIVE minutes. This sounds like a long time, and it is, but this step is important. While this is beating, sift together the flour and cocoa powder in a small bowl and set aside. After your five minutes is up turn mixing speed down to low, get the melted chocolate and butter mixture, and slowly scoop into the mixing bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix for a full minute until all the wet ingredients are well combined.

Slowly add the flour and cocoa mixture, until just combined and remove the mixing bowl from the mixer. With a rubber spatula, fold in whatever add in's you like. I chose the add a cup of chopped walnuts, and half a cup of chocolate chips that I chopped into smaller pieces (because I didn't have mini's) Once everything is evenly distributed, cover this bowl and chill the mixture for at least 30 minutes.

You guys! We are almost done! Take the chilled cookie dough out of the fridge and place heaping tablespoons of dough onto your cookie sheet two inches apart (Tip: I use these Baking Mats to keep my baking sheets looking new). These do spread, so don't put them too close together.

Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. I did leave mine in for 10 minutes and they turned out perfect, but all ovens vary so do keep an eye on them. I know I say that a lot, but it's true. You will know these are done, when the edges are set and look fully cooked and the center will still look slightly underdone. Once they are baked, remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let them sit on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks. Cool completely, because they honestly get better as they sit. I couldn't wait, obviously, so I had one about three minutes out of the oven and it was like eating brownie dough, I was NOT disappointed. Again, these Fudgy Brownie Cookies are so rich and chocolaty, which means they are absolutely perfect for the chocolate lover in your life... Thanks for baking with me again today! Stay tuned for more cookie recipes to come this December. Happy Holidays!
