Ingredients for brownie cookies

  • Chocolate Chips: This recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Unsalted Butter: I always use unsalted butter when I bake. It allows me to control the salt content in recipes.
  • Eggs: Eggs act as a binder and holds the shape when baking cookies. It also gives the cookies moisture.
  • Sugar: This recipe uses a combinations of white granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Vanilla: I love to use pure vanilla when baking, but vanilla extract works well.
  • Baking Powder: Will give these brownie cookies a cakey texture.
  • Salt: By using salt, it will bring out the sweet flavor of the chocolate.
  • Flour: All purpose flour is used in this recipe.
  • Cocoa Powder: I use unsweetened cocoa powder in these brownie cookies. I don’t recommend using Dutch processed cocoa powder.

How to make soft brownie cookies

  • Place 12 oz. chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Stir in melted butter mix until fully combined and creamy. Set melted chocolate aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl add eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Beat on high with a hand mixer or a stand mixer for 5 minutes until the batter becomes thick and creamy. *Do not skip mixing the batter for 5 minutes. Your cookies will turn out thin and they won’t have that beautiful shiny exterior*
  • Reduce mixer speed to low, pour melted chocolate mixture into the batter and beat until combined.
  • Add cocoa powder and all-purpose flour, stir until just combined.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and chopped pecans (optional).
  • Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  • Once dough has had enough time to chill, preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scoop about 1.5 Tbsp. of dough and roll into balls.
  • Place cookie dough balls on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes, or (oven temps can vary, so you may need to add extra time) until the middle looks soft and a little underdone, and the edges are set.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving. Enjoy!

Tips for making the best brownie cookies

  • Chilling the dough in the fridge is a must! When you chill the dough it prevents the cookies from spreading and becoming flat. The longer you can chill cookie dough, the better.
  • I always use parchment paper when I bake cookies. This also prevents the cookies from spreading while baking.
  • Spending the extra time mixing the batter is very important. Take the 5 minutes to mix the egg and sugar mixture until it becomes thick and creamy. Doing this will result in the perfect texture cookie.
  • I do not recommend using Dutch processed cocoa powder. Unsweetened cocoa powder is the best for this brownie cookie.
