Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I have always been on the lookout for that perfect cookie: crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, but above all, one that does not go flat in the oven… I believe I found it!

chocolate brownies cookies


  • 25g butter, diced
  • 175g dark chocolate, broken
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 40g self raising flour
  • Either chopped nuts, chocolate chips, etc….100g of


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/ 160°fan/ Gas 4 and get 2 baking trays ready
  • In a small pan, melt the chocolate and butter together, slowly, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Set aside to cool slightly
  • In a large bowl, cream together egg and sugar
  • Add the chocolate mixture, vanilla, flour and chips or else chosen, and mix with a wooden spoon
  • Using a spoon or an ice cream scooper (small or medium size, depending on how many you want!), drop the mixture on the trays, well spaced (about 12)
  • Bake in the oven for about 11 to 13mn: the cookies look swollen and cracked as on the photo, but only just
  • Cool down on a wire rack immediately


Frankly, I love my ice cream scoopers whenever baking cookies. So much easier to handle, I never regretted their purchase! Might as well go for the trio: small, medium and large… you never know, you might even use them for ice cream!
