Brownie Cookies

Brownie Cookies from Whatcha Makin' Now?

Oh hi! I'm back and my little break was just what I needed to get organized. What better way to get back at it then with Brownie Cookies. Yes, Brownie Cookies. They are thick, fudgy and I just love the cracking on the top.

The consistency is much like a brownie or cake, not a cookie. I think next time I make them I'll add in chocolate chips just for another little punch of chocolate. You could even add nuts if you're one of those weirdos that like nuts in your brownies. Just kidding, mostly.

These would be a perfect treat for Valentine's Day. Wrap them up with a fun little note and your loved ones will feel the love.

Brownie Cookies

16 ounces dark chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter
4 eggs
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookies sheets with baking mats and set aside.

Melt chocolate by microwaving at 50% power for 30-45 second bursts, stirring between each burst, until melted and smooth. Set aside.

In a small bowl, melt the butter - about 30 seconds on high. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar and eggs with a fork. Add in the melted chocolate, melted butter, flour, baking powder, and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips if using.

Using a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) drop dough onto prepared cookies sheets. Only bake 6 per pan at a time.

Bake at 350 degrees for 14-15 minutes. Be careful not to over bake or cookies can be dry.

Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 15-18 large cookies.
