Brownie Cookies – Quick & Easy

Rate this recipe

This Quick & Easy recipe for Brownie Cookies is based on one seen by Anna Olson. The recipe is straightforward and results in a delightful cookie. The centre boasts the soft texture of a brownie, while the exterior mirrors the slightly crisp texture found on the top of a brownie.

I’ve made slight adaptations, including the addition of a combination of chocolate chips and toffee pieces. But the recipe is versatile enough to include other ingredients such as chopped nuts or dried fruits. After all the Christmas baking, this recipe offers a nice change in terms of ease and flavour.

Brownie Cookies


The process is simple and easy. Begin by melting chocolate with butter. Then, mix sugar, eggs, and vanilla together. Incorporate the melted chocolate and combine. Add flour and cocoa powder with a pinch of salt and raising agent to complete the batter. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips or other preferred ingredients. As the oven heats up, divide the batter into 24 equal portions on baking trays. Bake for approximately 10 minutes and allow the cookies to cool. It’s as simple as that.

My cookies baked well in 10 minutes. However they were soft to the touch, so they needed to cool on the trays to firm up before transferring them to a wire rack. The taste was rich and chocolatey, and the texture matched the earlier description—soft and chewy with a slight crisp exterior. These cookies are a delightful treat to enjoy with tea, coffee, or milk. But, of course, you can serve them as you wish.
