Delicious Chocolate Brownie Cookies Recipe

These Chocolate Brownie Cookies were just a little experiment really but they were so delicious, I knew I had to post them.

The moist, chewy, chocolatey, fudgy cookies are studded with not only milk chocolate chunks but also glorious chunks of gooey chocolate brownie. Yes...gooey chocolate brownie!

The brownie chunks create intensely chocolatey, moist cakey pockets of yum. I have honestly never had a more chocolatey cookie.

If you are baking brownies under-baked brownie will work best for these cookies, the gooey-er the better. You can freeze the under-baked brownie before cubing it, this way the cubes will retain their shape when folded into the mixture but still be gooey, moist and amazing once baked.



Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Makes 45

625g plain flour
75g cocoa powder
25g milk powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
450g unsalted butter, room temperature
250g caster sugar
250g light brown sugar
75ml liquid glucose
5 medium eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
100g milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
100g milk chocolate, grated
300g  under-baked chocolate brownie, cubed

Preheat the oven to 170C.

Line 3 cookie sheets with baking paper and set aside.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, milk powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside.

In the bowl of a free standing mixer or using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the liquid glucose and beat for a further minute.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating the mixture until each one is fully incorporated before adding the next.

Add the vanilla extract and beat until incorporated.

Fold in the flour mixture, followed by the chocolate chunks and grated chocolate.  Very gently fold in the chocolate brownie cubes.

Roll the dough into balls and place on the prepared cookie sheets. Refrigerate for 15 minutes before baking.

Bake the cookies for 10-15.

Allow the cookies to cool on their sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!

They look divine. Gotta ask though - what is Under-cooked Chocolate Brownie...???? Sorry just a little confused.

Tracey,

You must have had a brownie! Brownies are squares or slabs of very gooey, dense chocolate cake? They often have added nuts of chunks of fudge. For these cookies I recommend under-baking brownies so they are extra gooey and the brownie chunks don't dry out and become over baked when baked in the cookie. Hope that helps!

I can almost taste these. Anything that tastes remotely like a brownie gets my attention. What a wonderful recipe.
