Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Cookies

May 8, 2013 by Holly

If you’re anything like me, no amount of chocolate will ever be enough. Sure, I can practice self restraint when it comes to chocolate and desserts. But the question always arises, why? Why should I give up the sweet treat sitting right in front of me? Everything in moderation is okay. Right? And hey, maybe my definition of moderation is a far cry from yours. You say potato, I say patahto. But I digress.

Chocolate is delicious and should always be included in baked goods. I mean, do it in the name of health. They say some amount of dark chocolate is even considered HEALTHY. Amazing. Sometimes I run into the problem that I can’t decide WHAT chocolatey dessert I want. Some days I want brownies, other days I crave cookies and then there are the really hard days that I want both. So what better way to curve that craving than combining these two delicious desserts into one? Enter center stage: the double chocolate brownie batter cookie. It is moist and fudgy like brownies but has a solid cookie base. And oh, it’s filled with dark chocolate chips. YUM. Need I say more? I didn’t think so… let’s get down to business!

Ingredients:

1 box of brownie mix (or you can make your own, but I’m a laze)

1 1/4 cups flour

1/4 cup light brown sugar

2 eggs

1 stick unsalted butter (melted)

Water (as needed)

Dark chocolate chunks

Mix in eggs and then melted butter. Dough will seem dry. Add in 2 tbsp of water to start. Add more water (1 tbsp at a time) as needed.

Mix in dark chocolate chunks until well combined. Try not to eat the dough (it will be HARD). Allow the dough to chill for at least 2 hours. I usually let mine chill overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet & bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow them to cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

DIVE IN.

These may be some of my favorite ‘easy’ cookies to whip together. I would stress the ‘chilling of the dough’ step. It really helps the cookies hold their shape during the baking process. Just make the dough the night before and have a little tasting of the dough to hold you over until you bake them 😉 !

Happy Baking! xoxo
