What Ingredients Do You Need to Make Brownie Cookies?
These fudgy brownie cookies are a simple, from scratch recipe that will leave you drooling as you watch them puff and bake. They taste like a soft, chewy version of our favorite; Brownie Brittle.
To make brownie cookies you’ll need unsalted butter, unsweetened chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips, flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and chopped pecans. Pecans are optional but recommended.
Sure, you can make brownie cookies with cocoa powder to give them their chocolatey taste, but I find that you get a fudgier, sweeter flavor if you use melted chocolate and chocolate chips!
How to Make Brownie Cookies.
These scratch cookies are just as easy to make as my homemade Red Velvet Brownies, and you won’t even miss the convenience of the box version. You can easily whip up these chewy chocolate brownie cookies in about 25 minutes, total.

Recipe Notes for Brownie Cookies:
Chocolate: You can make brownie cookies without chocolate chips, it’s just a matter of choosing a different semi-sweet chocolate to melt. A little experimentation here and there with different chocolates will lead you to the flavors you prefer!

Crunchy: This world has two types of people. Those who like the center of the brownie pan, and those who prefer pieces from the crunchy edges. If you like a crunchy brownie, you can bake this recipe for a few minutes longer to create a batch of delightful crispy brownie cookies. Keep a keen eye on them! You don’t want to burn them.
Can You Make Brownie Cookies Ahead of Time?
Chocolate chip brownie cookies (yes, they go by many names), are great for any cookie worthy occasion. Not exactly sure when you’re going to serve them…. No problem here. You can whip this dough up and refrigerate it days before you set out to bake it with no loss in flavor. Remember to cover the batter tightly. You may be tempted to eat all the batter, but remember…raw eggs! And, you can freeze it for months. That said, don’t let that dough sit too long!
How Do You Freeze Brownie Cookies?
You can freeze my brownie chocolate chip cookies uncooked for 6 – 12 months in a freezer safe container. When you are ready to bake them, you can do so by thawing the batter and baking them when thawed completely. If you’ve portioned them out before freezing, you can pop them right on a cookie tray and into a preheated oven!
You can also freeze brownie cookies after they’re made, but you probably won’t have that many leftovers. Simply place them into a freezer safe bag and take them out when you’re ready to enjoy. Microwaving them until gooey makes for a delightful little snack!
How Long Will These Brownie Cookies Stay Soft?

How Should These Brownie Cookies be Stored?
