DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIE COOKIES — Is it a cookie or is it a brownie? This decadent chocolate cookie offers all of the flavors of a dense, chewy brownie. It’s like two desserts in one!
I don’t know about you, but “Do I want a brownie or do I want a cookie?” is a question I ask myself often. And with these Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies, you can have both!
Imagine a rich, dense, dark chocolate brownie, with all of the hand held convenience of a cookie. That’s basically what this decadent chocolate cookie is!
These cookies are so chewy and gooey and delicious! And absolutely perfect served warm with a tall, cold glass of milk on the side.
Other than a really good chocolate chip cookie, this is probably my favorite cookie of all time. Definitely my favorite chocolate cookie of all time.
In fact, I usually double the recipe and keep some in the freezer for whenever a chocolate craving strikes. Which for me, is often.
I like to go all-out on the dark chocolate with this recipe, which means I use Dutch process cocoa powder, and bittersweet chocolate chips.
If you prefer something a little less rich, or just don’t have those ingredients handy, you can definitely use regular, unsweetened cocoa powder along with semi-sweet or even milk chocolate chips.
For a fun twist, I sometimes use white chocolate chips in these cookies too. Or even a combination of white and dark chocolate.
The most important thing to ensure a fabulously chewy cookie is not to overbake them. You’ll want to pull them out of the oven when they are just set around the edges, but still slightly soft in the middle.
Obviously these cookies aren’t going to help much with your New Year’s resolutions, but if you’ve got a craving for either cookies, or brownies, these Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies will hit the spot!
Be sure to save this recipe for Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
