Better-than-Brownies Chocolate Cookies

chocolate-cookies-main

The title essentially says it all. Having trouble deciding between making cookies or making brownies? Your problem is now solved – bake these beauties up and you get the best of both worlds. This is yet another installment of cookies I made as a result of the Top 10 list you all helped me create. I have loved trying new cookie recipes each week, and with this being the next to last recipe (next week is ginger cookies!), I’m going to have to come up with another food genre to get input on. Any ideas? Maybe favorite recipes with summer fruits, ice cream flavors, ethnic dish or something like that? Feel free to throw out some suggestions.

Now we must get back to talking about these cookies. They are not for the faint of heart, and if you are only a fair-weather chocolate fan, these will either fully convert you or may be too much for you. Since I am an all-chocolate-all-the-time chocolate fan, it goes without saying that these cookies razzled and dazzled me to the point of wanting to hide them from others. I didn’t really hide them, but I was tempted. Actually, it wouldn’t hurt to stash a few of these in the freezer for when chocolate hunger pangs strike. A quick turn in the microwave and you will be beyond satisfied.

I tried to determine if I really think these cookies are better than brownies. That, of course, required serious research. Research, in this case, would be defined as taste testing. And the result is – I just can’t choose. These cookies are rich, delicious and are like a jolt of espresso for your taste buds. But brownies, oh brownies. In all of their dense, fudgy glory and endless variations… they just can’t be replaced. So, be prepared to make these, love them, and then alternate between them and your favorite brownie when you can’t decide if you want a cookie or brownie.

I’m normally not a cookie dunker, but these were absolutely superb dunked in a glass of cold milk. So pour yourself a tall glass and enjoy! (And then come back and let me know if you think these really are better than brownies!)

Better-Than-Brownies Cookies

Yield: About 24 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

16 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 eggs
1⅓ cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set it over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally, until completely melted and smooth.

3. In the meantime, stir together the eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.

4. In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder.

5. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine well. Slowly add the dry ingredients, folding them into the batter. Once all of the flour is incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips.

6. Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough (a medium cookie scoop's worth) onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are firm on the outside. Like brownies, do not overbake! Leave to cool completely on the baking sheets.

    Made these last night, they were amazing!! The batter was on the thin side, but not runny. Definitely scoop-able. And they came out just like the picture. I didn’t let the batter sit at all. I did beat the eggs with a fork before adding the sugar (it’s a habit, I did it without thinking) and I used bittersweet chocolate chips. Oh and out of laziness I melted the chocolate and the butter in the microwave. I’m not sure why people are having the “wafer thin” issue, I don’t know enough about the science of baking! But mine were perfect.

    To those of you who had runny cookies:

    I have tried this recipe many many times in desperation. They look so good that I just could not give up after several failed attempts!

    The ratios are correct. Do not add extra flour. Simply let the mixture sit for 20 minutes after mixing. It will set!

    I made these this afternoon. Batter was super super runny and spread like mad on the baking tray. So I gave up with that and put the batter in cupcake cases, now I have brownie cupcakes. Nothing’s ever a failure when it comes to chocolate.

    I think however I must have made a mistake with measuring. Or something. British v American measurements are always insanely confusing!

    So, I just came across this and I HAVE to make them :) I will probably attempt to make this sometime this or next week! It’s always been a habit of mine to check reviews before I decide to waste time & money making something that I’m not familiar with… & I’m happy to have come across some advice on how to handle the batter. Although, I figured that you’d have to let the heated mixture cool before you add it to your cold ingredients. Maybe that’s just because I’m familiar with making chocolate cheesecake :P Either way, I wanted to say thank you for sharing your recipe! I can’t wait to try it!!!!

    I tried this recipe I think 3 times…. but always seems really runny, even cooling the melted chocolate completely (as recommended), and letting the batter sit for 30 mins… Nothing happened.. Though the last time is not a pure success (I achieved that nice shiny-crackly top), but it came out almost a cookie-like except really really thin and it stick to the pan (even though I used parchment paper) and fell apart when removed..I found a BROWNIE-COOKIE recipe from Martha Stewart (Outrageous Chocolate Cookies) and had a very huge success at my first try… But I still want to achieve that cookie texture in the pictures that I can’t stop thinking how can I perfect this recipe and trying this out..hehe

    These turned out so yummy! They were a big hit at the party I brought them to :)

    I have one question though: is there a way to make them thicker? They turned out really thin and were kind of flimsy as I took them off the sheet, but I don’t think I made any missteps. Would adding more baking powder do anything?

      Hi Lena, They are meant to be on the thin side so they have that fudgy texture of brownies. I would try chilling the dough longer, if they spread a little too much.

    This recipe does not work as posted. Is the half cup of flour called for accurate? I ended up with batter, not dough, and I should have added flour to the batter until it thickened. However, I just poured it in a pan and baked it like brownies, but even that never set up properly. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, or corrections to the recipe.

    • Michelle on September 1st, 2011 at 3:18 pm

      The half cup of flour is indeed accurate. I had great success with this recipe, and the cookies are fabulous. Many readers have had the same result, while others have had trouble with the batter being too thin. It does need to sit to thicken up and can be helped along by refrigerating it until it’s the consistency of fudge.

    I’ve made these cookies multiple times, and they are delicious! One time, the batter did spread while baking, but I used foil with nonstick spray to line the tray, so that was probably the problem. Thanks for the recipe!

    My batter was not runny at all, but more on the thick side. I let the chocolate cool off before mixing it and when I was folding in the flour it already got thicker and thicker.

    Michelle, may I just say that I AM YOUR BIG FAN and YOU ARE A BAKING GENIUS! I made these yesterday because my friend Nicole was having a bad week and needed some chocolatey comfort. Since cutting and packing brownies, Nicole’s all-time favourite dessert, were always somewhat resource unfriendly (I used to wrap individual pieces in a piece of cooking foil…), I decided to make your better-than-brownies chocolate cookies. I didn’t want to make my friend sugar high, so I omitted chocolate chips, used baking chocolate blocks, and yes… my dough was super runny in the beginning… but after letting it sit there for about 10-20 min, they were scoopable. PEOPLE! If you’re using baking chocolate, GIVE YOUR BATTER ABOUT 10-20 MIN AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SCOOP! (Or 5 min in your fridge if you’re living in a warm place.) Resist the temptation to add more flour ‘cuz this recipe is PERFECT as is. Trust me, I am really bad with first-trial recipes, and this recipe worked like magic.

    Mine were so good Nicole almost cried. Now my hubby is angry that I packed all of them for Nicole, so I’ll be baking with cocoa powder substitution (3 tablespoons cocoa powder + 1 tablespoon oil = 1 oz. bittersweet chocolate). I’ll see how that alters the consistency of the batter and let y’all know if you’re reading the replies and suggestions as I always do when trying a new recipe ;)

    • Angela EJ on March 14th, 2012 at 12:04 pm

      Question: Tried this recipe again, this time using the cocoa pwoder+oil… And it didn’t work for me at all. I tried to measure it by grams, gave me some cake-like puffed up yucky stuff, and then did it by tablespoon, and the consistency of the batter was similar to the one I had when I made it with baking chocolate… but when I baked them, they were all wrong! The surface of the cookies were all bubbly, as in, small bubbles filled the surface… No cracks… What did I do wrong? Would someone PLEASE help me out!

      • Michelle on March 14th, 2012 at 1:20 pm

        Hi Angela, It sounds like the oil substitution just may not work with the consistency of this particular cookie.

    OMG! Yum-o!! I made these tonight for the first time and they came out great! I let the melted chocolate mixture cool a bit before adding to the egg mixture. The first batch I scooped out, the batter wasn’t very thick and it spread out a littlebit on the baking sheet. But when it was done… It turned out just like your pictures!
    Also I noticed, as I was waiting in between batches, the batter got thicker and it was definitely more ‘scoopable’. Awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Maha, Technically you could melt chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate, however if you can get good-quality chocolate I would use that. Because these cookies have such a concentrated flavor, you’ll notice a big difference with the quality of chocolate you use.

    I made these yesterday for church potluck and they were very popular. I was a bit worried about the batter since it was a little thin, but actually the cookies came out fine. I did add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and I only need 12 oz to make the cup amount required for the recipe. I did let my chocolate cool some before adding it to the egg mixture and stored the batter in the fridge between baking each sheet. Might try to add a teaspoon or two of instant coffee powder or instant espresso powder next time. Not a fan right out of the over and warm but they are really good the next day!

    I’ve made these cookies at least a half dozen times and I’ve never had an issue with runny batter. I melt the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave on low, stirring often (to avoid burning) until it’s melted through. Then I mix everything by hand. I scoop all the batter onto cookie prepared cookie sheets right away otherwise my batter gets too stiff to scoop, then I start baking each sheet. I also think scooping the batter onto the sheets at the beginning helps the cookie maintain the shiny, glossy, crackly finish when they’re done baking. I also weigh my flour and chocolate. I’m no expert but this has worked for me every time. These cookies are amazing and delicious! They’re one of my hubby’s favorites and his family requests them every year for Christmas. Thanks for another great recipe!

    This is my second comment on these great little chocolate bites.
    I make mine somewhat differently from the recipe as written. I melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave, then set aside. It becomes really thick and sturdy, which scared me at first but has since worked out very well for me. I weigh out 75 grams of flour. I mix the eggs and sugar with my little hand blender for about 2 minutes on medium high. This is more of a souffle or meringue technique, but the eggs become lighter colored, really thick (I won’t say doubled in volume).. I think this is what creates the shiny top and crackles. Then follow the recipe. When it comes together, the batter is really thick.and almost holds the scoop shape on the baking sheet. I bake for 5 minutes, rotate the pan and bake for another 5. Cool for a few minutes on the sheet then remove the whole sheet of parchment off the cookie sheet to cool completely. Have not had a failed batch yet! I hope this helps anyone having trouble because the cookies are really delicious and easy.

    the ratio of chocolate and liquid to 1/2 cup of flour is way off. I needed to add nearly an additional cup of flour to get somewhat of a consistency that didn’t spill all over the baking sheet!

    so i made the cookies and at first the batter was really liquid-y so I added more flour (ended up adding 2 cups of flour so that it ended up being cookie dough consistency) they tasted amazing but the cookies were flat. After that I make another batch and with the original recipe and they were still flat and i couldn’t make them round because the batter was too liquid-y

    OH… MY… GOD!!!!!! Those cookies were UNBELIEVABLE, I haven’t eaten something so chocolaty in SUCH a long time!!!! The cookies in the first batch came out completely flat, so I put the cookie dough in the freezer for 3-4 minutes. Then I used my ice cream scoop to take bits from the dough that I shaped in little balls, and I put them in my preheated oven… The results were, needless to say, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! They taste exactly like brownies, very chocolate brownies, but they have the size of a cookie, so no more crumbs and dirty dishes in cutting your brownie, and you can dip them in a glass of milk and they become so chewy… I’m making another batch this week, I completely loved them! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!

    P.S: I put some walnuts in the dough too, it worked great…

    Definitely needs more elaborate instructions, mine basically flattened into a pan of brownies. If it’s a cookie you want this is not the recipe for you unless you want to read through the comments and piece together a better instruction list.

    So here we are in 2014, and I tried this recipe after reading all the reviews. It works, people! Here is how I did it, without weighing ingredients or using special flour:
    1. The chocolate and butter mixture needs to be cool enough to stick your finger in the middle without getting burned.
    2. After you prepare the batter, refrigerate it for 1.5 – 2 hours. It will go in the fridge looking like the brownie batter everyone complained about, and come out looking like cookie dough. Voila! You still need to use two tablespoons to drop the cookies onto the pans, but it’s solid enough.
    3. Bake right away and put your dough in the fridge in between batches. This prevents too much spread with every cookie dough ever. Cool at least almost-completely on the baking sheets (torture for the few-panned bakers like myself) or you will have messy-destroyed hot brownie, not a cookie.
    4. Make sure you bake it enough. Yes, beware of over-baking. But they will rise a bit and perhaps look almost done, and still fall flat when you cool them if you don’t bake them long enough. I made big cookies (2 tbsp dough, roughly) and did 12-14 minutes instead of 10-12. Mine were crackled-brownie looking, puffy in the center, gooey on the inside, perfection like the picture, but bigger (I made 22 cookies from the recipe).

    And I just did the recipe like it says, with a little common sense!

    There has to be a typo in the recipe. No matter how I made this recipe they just melted in the oven and didn’t turn out like cookies at all. I also let the dough chill, but it didn’t make a difference. I also tried adding more flour. They’re just brownies, nothing cookie about it.

    We tried this recipe as written – what a waste. We followed the instructions to a T but the cookies didn’t bake properly. We put them in and they spread flat and burnt in the bottom and everything else refused to bake until we took the mess out of the oven and let it cool. Very disappointed.
