This recipe for Chewy Brownie Cookies was sent to me by Caz, one of my viewers. It is so very easy to make. Not only easy though, it doesn’t take much time either. Really you just combine the various ingredients into a thick batter. Then scoop the batter onto a baking tray and bake the cookies.

Nothing difficult about that at all. But the ease doesn’t mean they aren’t great cookies. The flavour is awesome and the cookies have a moist and chewy texture like brownies.

Ingredients

The ingredients list isn’t too long either.

Dark Chocolate – I used dark chocolate with 72% cocoa solids but you can use anything greater than about 50% really.

Sugar – I use light brown sugar and caster sugar, making a total of 250g(1 1/4 cups). But I am sure using just caster sugar in the same amount will be fine.

Flour – Plain flour, or all purpose flour is best.

Eggs – The recipe calls for two large eggs(XL in USA) for a total of 120g of eggs out of the shell. So if you only have medium(large in the USA) you can use two of them and add a little extra to make up the amount.

Unsalted butter – you can use salted instead and just leave out the salt that is specified in the recipe.

Cocoa Powder – this adds an extra depth to the chocolate flavour.

Salt – just a little to draw out the other flavours.

Chocolate chips – these are optional and can be whatever type you like.

Process for Chewy Brownie Cookies

With such a simple list of ingredients it is no surprise that the process is easy too.

Melt the butter and chocolate together into a lovely smooth mixture.

Whisk the eggs with the sugar until they are pale and thick.

Gradually whisk the melted mixture into the the eggs and sugar to combine them,

Mix the flour, salt and sifted cocoa powder together. Then add that into the batter and gently whisk to combine.

Stir in the chocolate chips. Then scoop the batter, in the amounts you want, onto a line baking tray. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, in a preheated oven, at 180C/160C Fan/350F. Allow them to cool on the trays for about ten minutes, to firm up. Then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

My Cookies

I used about 70g of batter for each of my cookies. That was enough batter for about 14 cookies. I left a decent gap between each one to allow some spreading. Then put them in the oven to bake.

After 12 minutes they were cracked on the top and looked nicely baked. So I took them out of the oven and let them cool a little before transferring to wire rack.

The cookies were lovely and moist and chewy, when I had a taste. The richness of the chocolate, with a slight gooiness in the centre was just perfect. These are great as a little treat to accompany my afternoon tea.
