Description

Soft and chewy and intensely chocolatey, these cookies are all the goodness of a brownie in cookie form.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 1-½ cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

In a saucepan, or in the microwave, gently melt butter and chocolate chips until the butter is melted and chocolate begins to melt. Remove from heat and stir until all the chocolate has melted completely.

In a separate bowl, beat together the sugar, eggs and vanilla until they’re thoroughly combined. Add the melted chocolate mixture, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour or until manageable.

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Using a tablespoon or mini ice cream scoop, drop cookie dough onto baking sheets, leaving a couple of inches of space in between each cookie.

Bake for 12 minutes.

My husband and I have been on a search for a rich, truely chocolate cookie…and we found the perfect chocolate cookie when we made this recipe.

These are quite possibly the easiest made-from-scratch cookies that your mixing bowl has ever produced!

I’ve never had that problem, the dough is a little trickier to scoop than a typical cookie dough but it should be managable. I’ve never had them stick to parchment though. Did you refrigerate the dough?

do you have any recommendations for how to make the dough more scoopable? i was just about pulling my hair out with these! scoops and spoons gunked up immediately, so i tried rolling balls and that was a whole new level of messy! they also stuck to the parchment paper at the end of baking. i was surprised, and kept re-reading the recipe to make sure i didn’t leave something out!

they TASTE amazing, they just looked nothing like yours and were hard to manipulate. i want to try them again… but not without a strategy!

Just made these and they are better than Central Market’s version. I did put in marshmellows as Peypey suggested, but all they did was make big holes in the cookies and make a gooey mess. I’ll stick to the basic recipe next time. These will become my new go to cookie.

I made these for a Labor Day cookout. They were quick, easy and delicious! The thing I loved the most about them was they were subtlely sweet…not overpowering.

I am making another batch today!

Thanks for a great recipie!

These are amazing! I was looking for a cookie recipe that the cookie its self was chocolate and these were perfect! I added some mint chocolate chips and a couple more semi sweets once the dough was ready for chilling, and they were a huge hit! I will definitely be making these again and again and again!

These are good but not as decadent/chocolatey/dense like a brownie as I was expecting. Making ice cream sandwhiches with them sounds good though!

These were fantastic! Easy to make as well. I found the “dough” quite sticky and the last few balls a little hard to scrape out of the bowl, but SO worth it.
I doubled the recipe, made up some icing and made these into homemade Oreo cookies. A huge hit in my family.

Perfect recipe! I could taste the sea salt which I love. I added walnuts to half the cookies.

Made these tonight… delicious! Thankfully my parents are coming into town tomorrow so I don’t have to eat all of these by myself. I didn’t have any parchment paper, so I just greased my cookie sheets. It would have probably been better to go out and get some parchment paper.
