With that crinkly top, ultra fudgy center, triple dose of chocolate and chewy bite, you won't find a more decadent brownie cookie. These luscious brownie cookies are perfectly soft and rich with a jolt of chocolate that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Simply put, these are the best fudgy brownie cookies.



1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons salted butter, diced
5 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract or paste
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a small bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, cinnamon, baking powder and salt until well combined.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chopped chocolate and butter. Microwave in 15-second intervals and stir. Continue this process until the chocolate melts and smooths out.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, white sugar, dark brown sugar and vanilla extract on medium speed until frothy, about four minutes. Fold in the melted chocolate. Stir in the flour mixture just until combined, and then stir in the chocolate chips. At this point, it will look like brownie batter rather than cookie dough. Don't panic.
  4. Place the bowl in the freezer until the batter can be scooped into solid cookie dough balls, about an hour and a half.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop the solid brownie cookie dough into balls about the size of golf balls onto a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Bake for nine minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a couple minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
