Better Than Brownies Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 24 cookies


  • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped
  • 8 ounces German Chocolate chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper to help reduce sticking.
  • Place the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl and set it over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally, until completely melted, shiny and smooth.
  • Meanwhile, stir together the eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Add a little of the melted chocolate to the egg mixture, stirring continually to warm the mixture slightly thus avoiding curdles.
  • Add the rest of the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine well.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients, folding them into the batter.
  • Once all of the flour is incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are set. Do not over bake!
  • Leave to cool completely on the baking sheets.
