How to Make Chocolate Brownie Cookies From Scratch
To make a batch of these amazing chocolate cookies, you’ll need to gather the following ingredients. Details, including specific measurements, can be found at the bottom of the page on the recipe card.
butter (gotta love butter!)
chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
First, be sure to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, salt and the baking soda, set aside.
Add the butter and the chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl. Heat until melted, 30 to 60 seconds. Stir in the sugar, eggs and the vanilla until blended.
Stir in the remaining dry ingredients just until combined.
Scoop rounded tablespoons of chocolate cookie batter onto the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake your luscious brownie cookies for 12 minutes.
How to Store Homemade Cookies
These chocolate brownie cookies are nice and chewy. To keep them that way, you’ll want to follow my storage tips.
First, be sure to let the cookies cool to room temperature before storing them.
After that, transfer the cookies to a gallon-size plastic storage bag. To keep the chewy brownie cookies soft, I like to put a slice of bread in the bag with the cookies.
The moisture from the bread some humidity inside the bag that helps keep the moisture locked inside your chocolate brownie cookies.
It’s a tip that I learned from my mom!
I hope you love these wonderful cookies as much as my family has!
