Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 oz (200g) dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa), coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Dry Ingredients

  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Step 2: Melt the Chocolate and Butter

  1. Melt Chocolate and Butter: In a heatproof bowl, combine the chopped dark chocolate and unsalted butter. Melt the mixture over a pot of simmering water (double boiler method) or in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring frequently until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

Step 3: Mix the Wet Ingredients

  1. Beat Eggs and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and light brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add Vanilla: Mix in the vanilla extract.

Step 4: Combine Ingredients

  1. Add Chocolate Mixture: Gradually add the melted chocolate and butter mixture to the egg mixture, beating until well combined.
  2. Add Dry Ingredients: Gently fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Step 5: Chill the Dough

  1. Chill Dough: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes to firm up. This step is crucial for achieving the right texture.

Step 6: Bake the Cookies

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scoop Dough: Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still soft. The cookies will continue to cook slightly as they cool.
  4. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7: Serve

  1. Serve: Enjoy these fudgy brownie cookies with a glass of cold milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Chocolate: Use high-quality dark chocolate for the best flavor. You can also use chocolate chips if you prefer.
  • Chilling the Dough: Chilling the dough helps to solidify the fats and results in a thicker, chewier cookie. Don’t skip this step!
  • Baking Time: Keep a close eye on the cookies while baking. They should be slightly underbaked in the center for a fudgy texture.

Variations

Nutty Brownie Cookies

Fold in 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans into the dough for a nutty twist.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or chunks into the dough for an extra dose of chocolate.

Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Add 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the dough and sprinkle crushed peppermint candies on top before baking for a minty variation.
