Oh hey, who wants Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies the day after Halloween? Those of us who didn’t go trick or treating or pass out candy of course. I have to say, I’m very proud of these cookies. They took some time to get the recipe just right & it started with one disastrous batch of cookies before these beautiful & delicious chocolatey cookies came to be.
They have brownie mix, chocolate sprinkles & chunks of chocolate for a double chocolate experience.
I also spent a lot of time researching & reading about the “science of baking” the other night. You see baking requires much more talent & accuracy then cooking. There are so many different ways to create fluffy, moist, chewy, soft or firm cookies. These are soft in the middle & chewy on the outside from the addition of brownie mix.
- 1½ cups all purpose flour
- ½ cup chocolate brownie mix (I used Better Crocker)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1 stick butter (room temperature)
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ cup chocolate chips or chunks
- ½ cup chocolate sprinkles
- Combine flour, brownie mix, baking soda & cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl.
- Mix well & set aside.
- In another bowl add butter & sugar, mix until creamy.
- Beat in egg until the mixture is smooth. I mixed by hand but feel free to use an electric mixer.
- Add the butter, sugar, & egg mixture to the large mixing bowl.
- Stir until the four dissolves & then add in chocolate & sprinkles.
- Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- This cookie dough is very sticky so put the dough in the freezer for about 20 minutes while the oven pre heats.
- Spoon small balls of the semi frozen dough onto an un greased cookie sheet.
- Try scooping a spoonful of dough & pushing it on to the cookie sheet with your fingers & don't worry about having perfectly shaped balls. Again, it's very sticky & this is why you have to put it in the freezer before trying to work with it.
- Bake for 11-12 minutes.
- Mine needed 12 minutes every time.
- Allow them to cool for five minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
