Chewy and packed with chocolaty goodness. These cookies will leave a lasting impression in your memory. Simply scrumptious!
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I spent a large amount of my time working on a freelance project focusing on, wait for it, Christmas. That’s right. Our home was filled with sweet treats and with the aroma of the most wonderful time of the year. While I love working on side projects in my spare time, I couldn’t get over how weird it felt. I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on later this year, but for now I’m glad we’re still months away from said holiday and on the verge of a massive PUMPKIN explosion.
Oh, and don’t forget about chocolate, which is perfect no matter what season we find ourselves in.
I don’t know about you, but we are huge football fans around these parts. Now that the regular season is in full swing (finally), I am all about making foods and snacks that can be enjoyed while cheering on our favorite team and Fantasy Football players. And these cookies definitely hit the spot.
Nothing’s better than a lazy Sunday afternoon with cookie in hand. Am I right? No matter what time crunch I’m faced with or who’s coming over, I can always find a way to whip up a batch of cookies. And once in a while I stumble upon a recipe that’s almost too good to be real. It captures my taste buds and I cannot keep from making it over and over again. Which is precisely what these cookies are all about.
I have a feeling that the same goes for Monday afternoons. Chocolate, cookies, Mondays – these three are bound to be best friends. Two wonderful things helping the third to be better. It can’t but work ;).
These cookies look very much like brownies in the shape of cookies. They definitely taste similar to a fudgy and chewy brownie, but slightly different. They’re truly something you have to taste for yourself.
Just a fair warning though, you will be going back until you’ve devoured every last one. They have that magic pull you just can’t resist.
Um, excuse me. I have some cookies to finish.
- 8 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate, chopped
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped into chunks
- 6 ounces milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
- 1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 8 oz dark chocolate and butter, stirring often until completely combined and fully melted. Set aside.
- 2. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- 3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together eggs and brown sugar. Mix in vanilla extract and then add melted chocolate and continue stirring until fully incorporated. Slowly add dry ingredients and stir until combined (the batter will be thin, almost like a brownie batter). Fold in chocolate chunks.
- 4. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Place on the middle rack in your oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until crackly on top. Let cookies rest for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to cooling racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Enjoy!
- Cookies will keep up to one week stored in an airtight container or up to 4 weeks in the freezer.
Oh my word – look at this recipe! But before I get to that – operation Christmas – already? Thank god it’s only me! I want to jump through the screen and EAT these cookies!
So glad I stumbled across your blog, would love for you to stop past ours.

Thank you so much, Anisa. I am so glad you stopped by 😉
I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on for Christmas, Kathi! But I’m glad you’re not sharing that just yet…we have to get into fall first! 🙂 These cookies look delicious! I love that they’re similar to a brownie, yet different. Pinned!
I can’t wait to share, but I agree, I am glad we’re not there yet ;). Thank you so much, Gayle!
The texture of these cookies look insanely good!
These cookies are beautiful! I made them tonight; haven’t tried them yet, as they’re still cooling. Mine came out of the oven much “poofier” — high but narrow. Did you press down on the dough before you put them in the oven?
Hi Sarah! No, I didn’t, but that might help if you want a flatter cookies. Also, slightly tapping your baking sheet on the counter after they’re done baking usually helps!
Your cookies always look out of this world. As soon as I am done with sugar detox I’m baking a batch, haha
These would be perfect to get reintroduced to sugar, ha. Thanks, Kathy!
I totally agree with you – chocolate + cookies + Mondays = as good as it gets for the start of a work week! These cookies look incredible! That crinkly top is right up my alley!
The crinkly top is my favorite part. Thanks, Alyssa!
Oooh these look the best parts of a brownie and a cookie combined – incredible!

So funny that you were working on a freelance Christmas project! Talk about starting the season early! *wink* I bet that really got you in the mood for fall and holiday baking. These cookies look PERFECT! Like brownies in cookie form. I can’t wait to make these!
It sure did. I had so much fun working on it, but I’m glad we’re not quite there yet. I hope you give them a try – they’re so yummy. Thanks, Natalie!
