Last week I officially promoted my boys to the 4th and 2nd grades and closed out our first year homeschooling. It was a HUGE learning experience for all of us but I was so proud of my boys and all they accomplished and learned this year that I wanted to make a special treat for them to celebrate. I was about to make regular old brownies when I changed my mind and decided to make these brownie cookies instead. While I LOVE me some a good old chocolate brownie, brownie cookies give that same fudgy tastes and crackled crust in a smaller, less messy package. (So it’s better for portions and mess with little hands!)
These cookies taste absolutely magical when they are still very warm but they do need to cool a good 10 minutes before you move them as they are very fragile right out of the oven!
- 1⅓ cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 eggs
- ½ tsp coffee extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for 1 minute or until melted.
- In a stand mixer combine eggs and sugar until blended.
- Add chocolate mixture and remaining ingredients.
- Mix until fully blended.
- Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours up to overnight.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Scoop dough onto prepared pans and cook for 10-12 minutes.
- Allow cookies to cool on pan 10 minutes and serve warm. (I like to microwave mine for about 10-15 seconds if they've cooled all the way!)
Okay, so you’re all going to go out and make these cookies today right? And like always I’d love if you report back and let me know what you think of them! (If you’re on Yummly, you can save this recipe by clicking the Yummly icon on the left side of the screen!! Or feel free to pin it for later!)
