Brownie Cookies

OMG. These did NOT need to sit in the fridge for 2 hours. They are aMAYzing. Make them. Soon.

Fudgey Brownie Cookies

You will need:
  • 1 package fudge/dark chocolate brownie mix
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick butter, melted, cooled
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks (I used chocolate chips)
  1. Whisk together flour, brownie mix and brown sugar.
  2. Using a heavy spoon (I used the paddle attachment on my Kitchen Aid), stir in eggs one at a time. Followed by butter and 2 tablespoons water. If the batter appears like there is too much flour add 1 more tablespoon of water. Batter will be very thick.
  3. Fold in chocolate chunks
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours (I skipped this step and just put the bowl in the fridge while the oven preheated)
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Grease a cookie sheet (don't skip this step!)
  7. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on the cookie sheet, you want pretty thick cookies here to get the brownie feel, about 3 inches apart. Press down slightly. Don’t flatten completely.(I rolled mine into balls and didn't press down and they turned out perfect) Bake for 8 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, allow to cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely - PSHAW! Eat immediately because the gooey centers are the best part.
Full disclosure - recipe found on

Thankfully for my current healthy lifestyle project, these are almost all going to a friend who recently had a baby - Hi Sarah! People who are getting no sleep and breastfeeding earn extra calories in the form of chocolate brownie cookies.
