Crispy on the edges, chewy in the center, and filled with decadent chocolate, these super easy to make chewy brownie cookies are delicious and addictive. They are the answer to brownie edge lovers.
As if brownies weren’t addictive enough… As if I need yet another dessert to drool over… These chewy brownie cookies are my latest love.
Yes. I took a bite out of that cookie before I took this photo. Okay, maybe more than a bite.
If you love the edges of brownies as much as I do, you’ll love these cookies.
For all of you brownie edge lovers out there, these cookies are made just for you! That crispy outer edge (on all sides!), that chewy fudgy center, that classic brownie crinkly top, all in one delicious cookie.
And if you’re wondering… Taylor Swift’s Blank Space is playing while I’m writing this post. Lonely Starbucks lover, brownie edge lovers. Yes, I know. Wrong lyrics, but that’s what I always hear. lol
Really, do I need to say more?
I mean, all that slightly crispy brownie edge in one cookie. You won’t even have to fight your siblings (or roommates, spouses, significant others, family, friends, you get the idea) for the outer brownie edges! Not saying that I do… But now you won’t have to because every cookie is a slice of that coveted piece of brownie.
Trust me, they’re sooo worth trying.
Each batch makes about a dozen. I may have had a third of the dozen. What? I needed to make sure they were as good as the first one.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside for now.
Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave or on the stove until they’re nice and smooth.
In a large bowl, add one egg and one yolk and beat them. Then add cocoa powder, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Whisk them together until they are just combined.
Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Then add the vanilla extract and baking powder. Mix the ingredients until they are combined.
Lastly, add the flour and mix until they are just combined.
Divide the batter into 12, and place them onto the baking sheet. Yes, I know they don’t look that appetizing, but once they’ve melted, they become flat, crinkly, crispy, and chewy.
Bake these cookies for about 10-13 minutes until the tops become crinkly and the edges are starting to become crispy.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes. They will become crispy on the edges and chewy in the center as they cool.
Serve the cookies warm or cold.
