Fudgy Brownie Cookies

And on the 7th day God invented fudgy brownie cookies. Or something like that. But seriously… these fudgy brownie cookies are out of this world good. Picture the *exact* dense, fudgy texture of a a homemade brownie, but in perfect cookie form. I know, I know, it sounds too good to be true, but these chocolate cookies seriously do taste just like your favorite brownie.

If you’re a chocolate lover you simply have to make these fudgy chocolate cookies. You’re going to love them so much.

Ingredients for Fudgy Brownie Cookies

These simple brownie cookies call for all the same ingredients you’d need to make homemade brownies with a few exceptions. You’ll need a little more dry ingredients and a little less wet, but you’ll get the exact same fudgy brownie texture.

  • Cocoa Powder: Of course all chocolate desserts need cocoa powder. We love Rodelle’s cocoa powder, but any high quality, dutch processed cocoa powder will work well!
  • Chocolate: In addition to the cocoa powder you’ll need squares of baking chocolate. Make sure you’re using a bittersweet or dark chocolate unsweetened chocolate as milk chocolate will be too sweet for these brownies.
  • Flour: All purpose flour will keep these chocolate cookies soft! We’ve also had success using Bob’s Redmill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour if you’re looking to make them gfree.
  • Salt: Salt is a key ingredient in sweet treats. It will take your desserts from good to great. You’ll need salt in the brownie batter, but we also love to top these fudgy chocolate cookies with a sprinkle of sea salt for a ~gourmet~ cookie.
  • Butter: You’ll need melted butter to keep these brownie cookies super soft and decadent.
  • Sugar: We used a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar to give you a chewy and perfectly sweet cookie.
  • Espresso Powder: We always use espresso powder in our chocolate treats to enhance the chocolate flavor. You won’t taste the coffee at all–just deep, rich chocolate!
  • Eggs: Make sure your eggs are room temperature to prevent them from splitting the warm chocolate.

Tips for the best brownie cookies

To ensure that every bite of these brownie cookies is as fudgy, chocolatey, and perfect as it should be, follow the recipe to a T and take our advice. We’ve made these fugdy chocolate cookies more than a few times. You can trust us 🙂

  • Work quickly: To ensure your cookies get that glossy, crackly top signature brownie finish, it’s best to pop the brownie cookies in the oven as soon a you make the dough. In my book, this is preferable because there’s NO CHILL TIME. In other words, you can get cookies in your belly in 20 minutes from start to finish.
  • Use high quality chocolate: You’ll need a combination of cocoa powder and real chocolate to make these fudgy chocolate cookies. As with all chocolate desserts, we recommend you use high quality cocoa. For cocoa powder we love Rodelle. For chocolate, we love to bake with Ghiradelli, Guittard, Lindt, or another high quality brand.
  • Don’t forget the espresso powder: Espresso powder will enhance and deepen the chocolate flavor. So don’t worry about your cookies tasting like coffee. The only thing you’ll taste is scrumptious chocolate.
  • Do NOT over bake them: There are few things worse than over baked cookies. Make sure to take the brownies out as soon as they crackle when they are still raw and gooey in the middle. The cookies will continue to cook as the cool and you’ll be left with perfectly gooey middles.

How to store chocolate brownie cookies

Just like brownies, these chocolate cookies will stay moist, fudgy and tender for days. It’s best to store them in an airtight container or a plastic bag to preserve their flavor and texture as long as possible. The other great news? These chocolate brownie cookies freeze super well. Seal them in an airtight freezer bag for up to 3 months for delicious brownie cookies whenever you want.

  • Method: oven
  • Cuisine: american

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter and finely chopped chocolate. Microwave in 15 second increments, stirring well between each until the chocolate is completely smooth and melted. Do not overheat the chocolate as this can burn it. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer fit with the whisk attachment, combine the eggs and sugars. Beat on high speed until light and pale yellow in color, about 3 minutes.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the chocolate and butter mixture, mixing until completely homogenous. Stop the mixer.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and espresso powder. Mix until combined. The dough will be soft.
  6. To get the distinct glossy tops, do not let the dough sit! As soon as the dough is mixed, use a standard size cookie scoop to scoop out the cookies onto the prepared cookie sheets, dropped about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies have crackled and are set on the edges, but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool before eating!

  1. They tasted pretty good but definitely not as pillowy as the photos. I followed the recipe to a “T”. I also made sure to have a high heap of raw dough and not a flatter lump because I knew they would spread. Will try again!

  2. I would like to make these today, but I don’t have espresso powder. Can I leave it out, or do I need to wait till I can get to a store?

  3. Hi Sarah, I noticed that the Google Ad on the right sidebar on the desktop is blacking some part of the comment section. Hence, I can’t read the reviews entirely. As I didn’t want to blind type, I also needed to write this comment somewhere else and pasted it here. I’m not sure if anyone else is having the same issue, but I thought I would let you know just in case.

    P.S. I’m very excited to find your website. Can’t wait to try out the cookie recipes especially!

  4. Hi!
    The first time I did this recipe I got an incredible amazing crackly tops and very creamy inside, just delicious.
    But the next two times I could not get those crackly tops 🙁
    It was just the best, I love them the first time, best cookies ever!!
    I follow the recipe as its Witten, step by stephen but still don’t get it anymore, whyyyy?
    Help me please
    Thanks in advance

    • Hi David! I’m happy to hear these turned out well for you for the first time! I’ve found that if you handle the dough too much it tends to lose it’s glossy finish and crackly top because there is sooo much chocolate in the cookies. I recommend working quickly and using a cookie scoops so you don’t have to touch the dough at all!
