Christmas is just around the corner and despite the pandemic, we are still excited to celebrate it with our loved ones. And one way to make it special especially for the kids is to make batches of treats. And these Chocolate Brownie Cookies meet all expectations – fudgy, soft, chewy inside and crunchy outside.
CHOCOLATE BROWNIE COOKIES:
225 g dark chocolate (50% – 70% cacao) (8 oz)
65 g butter (1/4 cup + 1 tsp. or 2.5 oz)
100 g all-purpose flour (3/4 cup)
1 tsp baking powder
80 g sugar (3/8 cup)
80 g packed brown sugar (1/3 cup)
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE COOKIES
MELT CHOCOLATE AND BUTTER:
Step 1: Melt the chocolate and butter on a microwave or stove. Stir well and place to room temperature to cool.
Step 2: Using parchment paper, line 2 cookie sheets or baking sheets.
Step 3: Add the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Mix well.
Step 4: Place the eggs, white and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat for about 3 minutes with an electric mixer or until pale. Then, stir in the cooled chocolate-and-butter mixture until well incorporated.
Step 5: Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet while mixing continuously until the mixture is thick and well mixed.
LET THE COOKIE DOUGH REST:
Step 6: Wrap the cookie dough that is in the bowl with a plastic wrap or clings film. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 1 to 2 hours or overnight or 30 minutes in the freezer.
TO SHAPE INTO COOKIES:
Step 7: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F.
Step 8: Scoop some of the dough with a small ice cream scoop. Between your palms, roll it to about 1-inch or 2.5-inch diameter or 20 kg walnut-sized ball.
Step 9: Do this for the rest of the dough and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Leaving enough space between each cookie to spread when baking. Then, press them down gently to ensure they stay in place.
Step 10: Place on the middle rack of the preheated oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or if using a fan, assisted oven at 165 degrees C or 330 degrees F for the same time. And don’t overbake the cookies!
Step 11: Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
Step 12: Store the cookies in a cookie box for up to 14 days.
