  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour sifted
  • ¼ Cup Unsweeted cocoa powder Dutch Process
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
  • 7 ounces 60% dark Chocolate
  • ½ Cup Unsalted Butter
  • Cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tbsp Espresso Powder optional, but recommended


  • Preheat your oven to 350° and line two baking trays with parchment paper. (Never skip your parchement paper!)
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a sauce pan, or in short bursts in the microwave, melt together the chocolate, espresso powder (if using) and butter.
  • With an electric mixer, whip together the eggs and sugar until pale yellow and very fluffy. At least 3 minute. If the color hasn't changed, it hasn't gone long enough.
  • Turn off the mixer, add in vanilla extract. Next, with a spatula, slowly mix the chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar. Mix until just combined.
  • With a cookie scoop, or spoons, portion out roughly 2-3 tablespoons of the cookie dough.
  • Baker for 10-12 minutes until slightly domed. Cookies will fall and crackle more as they cool. Sprinkle with course salt, optional.


    • These Brownie Cookies will store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. 
    • The brownie cookie dough is best used immediately. Unfortunately, I do not recommend making it in advance and baking later.
    • I prefer a 60% chocolate, but you can use a semi sweet as well. Unfortunately, Milk chocolate is not a good choice for these cookies.
