Chocolate Brownie Cookies

When you can’t decide between making brownies or cookies, these chocolate brownie cookies are the answer. These cookies are rich, chocolatey, with a shiny crackly brownie exterior. They will satisfy your chocolate cravings.

I have been baking a lot of cookies this month. One of the cookies I made recently were these chocolate brownie cookies, which are a wonderful cross between a brownie and a cookie.

The first time I made these cookies was after my husband attempted to make me dessert for the first (and only) time. He used a boxed brownie mix but tried to bake them as cookies. To this day I don’t know where he went wrong, but the brownie cookies turned out sour!

But I guess I have him to thank because it was those “cookies” that got me curious about making my own brownie cookies. But, I promise you, this from-scratch version is all about chocolate with no sour surprises!

I love how these brownie cookies bake up with a shiny, crackly exterior just like brownies. The interior is soft, rich, and chocolatey.


  • Bittersweet chocolate
  • Unsalted butter
  • Eggs
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Chocolate chips

How to Make Brownie Cookies

  • The chocolate and butter are first melted over the stove.
  • Mix together the eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder.
  • Add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine well. Slowly add the dry ingredients, folding them into the batter. Once all of the flour is incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets. I found it was easiest to sort of pour the dough onto the pans so that it made flat circles since the cookie dough is thin and runny.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes at 350°F or until they are firm on the outside. Leave to cool completely on the baking sheets.

When you can't choose between a cookie or a brownie, make these chocolate brownie cookies that combine the best of both desserts.


  • 16 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer on the stove. Place a glass mixing bowl (one large enough that it won't fall fit completely into the saucepan) over the saucepan. Add in chopped chocolate and butter. Stir until everything is melted and smooth. Remove chocolate from heat to let it cool slightly.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
  • Add the melted chocolate mixture (make sure it is no longer so hot that it will cook the eggs) to the egg mixture and stir with a spatula until well combined. Fold in 1/3 of the flour. Repeat until all flour is completely incorporated.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets. (The dough will be liquid-like so be careful to pour the dough so that it will be spread into a flat circle. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are firm on the outside. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets before removing.

  1. I just made these today! I messed up on melting my chocolate so my dough was very thick and sticky… I was worried they wouldn’t turn out but they were great! Very flaky on top, very soft in the middle. Perfect Brownie Cookie Hybrid!

    Thank you for sharing so many wonderful recipes!
