Brownie Cookies

Yay chocolate! I recently discovered that Trader Joe’s sells chocolate for about $5 a pound. How could I resist? With half that chocolate bar, I made those lovely Chocolate Peppermint Crackle Cookies, and with the other half, I made these Better than Brownies Cookies from Oh Sweet Basil. I only had half the pound left, so I made a half batch. I also used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate, since milk chocolate is too creamy for these. While I wouldn’t say these are better than brownies, these cookies are certainly comparable. I love the crackly top on these, and the moist, fudgy insides. Here’s the recipe, halved from the recipe on Oh Sweet Basil.

Brownie Cookies

from Oh Sweet Basil

Makes about 3 dozen cookies


8 oz dark chocolate, chopped

2 tbsp unsalted butter

2 eggs

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat until the mixture is smooth and glossy. Set aside to cool.

While the chocolate is cooling, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Beat together the eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and beat to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined. Drop 2 teaspoon-sized balls of dough on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are crackly and just set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before removing to cool completely. Enjoy!
