These Dark Chocolate Brownie Cookies are rich and decadent and full of deep chocolate flavor.

Dark Chocolate Brownie Cookies - super decadant fudgy cookies that are tender and chewy like a brownie!

I set out the other day to make some chocolate cookies. I wanted soft, chewy cookies, that had an intense chocolate flavor, similar to brownies, but no cutting required. These Dark Chocolate Brownie Cookies most definitely fulfilled that desire!

These chocolate cookies are tender on the inside, slightly chewy and had the most decadent chocolate taste thanks to the dark chocolate chunks that are melted down with some butter to create the chocolate base. You could also use semi-sweet chocolate if you like your chocolate a little sweeter.

Another option would be to add nuts – we are a nut-free household but I think adding some chopped pecans or walnuts would help to cut through the richness. Either way, these are seriously amazing cookies…now if you’ll excuse me I am going to enjoy another cookie…or 12.

  • Melt chocolate and butter in a microwavable bowl in 15 second intervals, stirring at each interval, until melted and combined. Allow to cool on the counter for 15-20 minutes.

    Love these! I’ve made them twice now. Like perfect brownies with less mess! Thank you!!

    1. Kristin says:

      You are so welcome Jessica! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Jessica says:

    My new favorite cookie!! These are absolutely delicious and turned out perfect! I couldn’t stop eating them. Thank you!!!

  3. Laurie says:

    Just finished baking these. They taste delicious but my cookies spread similar to sugar cookie batter and are very light and airy with a very thin crispy outside.And they dropped slightly in the center when cooling for the 10 minutes on the cookie sheet. I did use semi sweet chocolate but otherwise followed directions exactly. Help what could I have done to get the nice chewy brownie texture? Only gave 3 star for the texture, it’s a 5 for flavor!

  4. Christina says:

    About how many cookies does the recipe make. I want to make sure i have enough 🙂

    1. Kristin says:

      It makes approximately 40 cookies.

      1. Christina says:

        I made them this evening and they turned out great! Mine came out a little flatter than pictured, but they taste fabulous and have such a great soft texture.

  5. Strawberry says:

    Can you replace the chocolate with Nutella?

    1. Kristin says:

      I want to say yes…but I can’t be 100% positive since I haven’t tried it. It’s a great idea though!

  6. Catherine says:

    Baking these right now! Excited to see how they turn out!

    1. Kristin says:

      Awesome! Let me know how they turn out for you!

  7. Melissa says:

    My batter is complete soup. Is 1/2 cup flour really all it calls for?

    1. Kristin says:

      Yes, that is correct. I’m sorry, not being in the kitchen with you I’m not sure what could have happened.
