  1. Preheat your oven to 350 °F (175 °C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a medium saucepan, gently melt the butter and chopped semi-sweet chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Pour the slightly cooled chocolate mixture into the sugar and egg mixture and stir until they are well incorporated.
  5. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the chocolate chips or chunks.
  7. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop dollops of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are just set and the tops are crackly but the center is still soft.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, serve your brownie cookies with a glass of milk or a scoop of ice cream for an extra treat.

  • Use high-quality chocolate for melting, as it is the main flavor of your cookies. For more, check out our ‘Best Chocolates’ article.
  • Make sure your eggs are at room temperature for even mixing.
  • Do not overmix the cookie dough. Mix the ingredients until just combined to avoid a cakey texture.
  • Chill the dough. If the dough is too sticky to handle, refrigerate it for 30 minutes before scooping.
  • Use a cookie scoop to ensure all your cookies are the same size and bake evenly.
  • Keep an eye on the oven. Brownie cookies should still be soft when you pull them out of the oven; they will firm up as they cool.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes to set before transferring them to a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container to keep them chewy. They can last up to a week.

Origin of Chocolate Brownie Cookies

The idea for brownie chocolate chip cookies came from a clever baker who decided to blend the rich, fudgy texture of brownies with the classic, beloved chocolate chip cookies. This delightful fusion combines the best elements of both desserts into one delicious bite. The cookie has a crispy brownie outside and a moist, chewy inside with melted chocolate chips, pleasing both brownie and cookie fans.

Often referred to as chocolate brownie cookies, these treats have made a name for themselves in the baking world for their ease of preparation and their crowd-pleasing nature. They're a staple at bake sales, holiday parties, and coffee breaks, where they offer a comforting chocolate fix. This brownie cookie recipe is versatile and can be adjusted to include various add-ins, such as nuts, flavored chips, or a sprinkle of sea salt to balance the sweetness.

Baking the perfect batch of these cookies is an art in simplicity. While the original brownie was purportedly created by a happy accident when a baker forgot to add baking powder to chocolate cake batter, the brownie cookie recipe has been refined over time to achieve the perfect balance of textures. Whether they’re called brownie chocolate chip cookies, chocolate brownie cookies, or simply brownie cookies, this dessert represents the joy of baking and the endless possibilities that come from combining classic flavors in new ways.

What To Serve with Brownie Cookies?

Brownie cookies are a delightful treat on their own, but you can serve them with complementary flavors.

Here are some recipes that you can serve with Brownie Cookies:

How To Store Brownie Cookies?

Storing brownie cookies properly is essential to maintain their moist texture and rich flavor. Here's how to keep them fresh:

At Room Temperature:

  • Cool Completely: Wait until the brownie cookies have cooled entirely after baking. Storing them while they are still warm can lead to condensation and sogginess.
  • Airtight Container: Place the cookies in an airtight container. This keeps out air and moisture that can make the cookies stale.
  • Separate Layers: If stacking cookies, separate layers with parchment paper to prevent them from sticking together.
  • Avoid Sunlight: Store the container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight which can cause the cookies to fade and the chocolate to potentially melt.

In the Refrigerator:

  • Chill in Containers: If the climate is particularly warm or humid, you can refrigerate the cookies in an airtight container.
  • Room Temperature Before Serving: Take them out and let them come to room temperature before serving, as the flavors and texture are best enjoyed when not chilled.


  • Freeze Individually: If you plan to freeze the cookies, place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze until solid.
  • Wrap and Bag: Once solid, wrap each cookie in plastic wrap and then place them in a zip-top freezer bag or airtight container.
  • Thawing: When ready to eat, let them thaw at room temperature or gently warm them in the oven or microwave.
