Death By Chocolate Cookies
Recipe type: Cookie
Total time: 
A rich, fudgy brownie-like cookie that stays soft and chewy for days!
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, stirring constantly, melt butter and chocolate chips until smooth.
  2. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes, until you can comfortably touch it.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla together until creamy (2-3 minutes).
  5. Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
  6. Add in the melted, cooled chocolate until fully blended, then cover and refrigerate cookie dough for at least 1 hour. (If refrigerating overnight, let stand at room temperature for 30-60 minutes before scooping).
  7. When it’s time to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  8. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  9. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet, leaving about 2″ between balls.
  10. Bake for 9-10 minutes, until set around the edges, but still soft in the center.
  11. Let the cookies cool (they will continue to bake slightly) on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
