I have never met a Brownie I didn’t like. Whether cakey, chewy, marbled, full of nuts or not, a Brownie is always a great sweet treat option.
I’m not sure whether I can honestly say these brownie cookies surpass the allure of a big Brownie square calling out to be consumed but since these cookies bake up faster they deserve an additonal ‘brownie’ point in my sweetenuf opinion.
I added in some Godiva milk chocolate caramels I had on hand but pretty much anything from nuts to chopped dark chocolate or even a few peanut butter cups would enhance these soft and fudgey cookies.
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment.
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup of your favourite add-ins, white chocolate, nuts, peanut butter cups, etc.
In microwave safe bowl melt butter and chocolate on low and stir until smooth. Add in sugar, salt and vanilla and stir. Add in eggs one at a time ad mix until well combined.
Add in flour and baking powder and mix until combined. Then fold in add-ins.
Drop cookies by tablespoon or scoop onto prepared sheet.
Bake 8 minutes. Cookies will be puffed and barely set. Remove from oven and let cool. Makes approximately 12-15 cookies.
