It is the holiday season now and it is time to indulge in your favorite desserts. With Christmas coming up in less than a week, we are starting our Christmas series with these delicious fudgy chocolate brownie cookies. I guess it is the first cookie recipe in our blog.
So, I know I have been AWOL for over twenty days now. A lot of things happened in between and this Christmas series is what I had planned a month back and I wanted to begin the series from the start of December month.
Because of many unfortunate reasons I was not able to do so. And now, with Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would put up recipes for the same for this whole week to compensate for what I had lost.
Also, it is not just Christmas that is coming up; it has also been one year people – one whole successful year of The Busy Apron people! I am very happy for being able to reach this milestone. Anyway, this is not the end; it is just the beginning, right?!
So, as I said earlier, I had planned many recipes to post for this Christmas, but unfortunately because of time restrictions, I have reduced the number of recipes that I would cover for Christmas. Do not worry; I will surely post other recipes that I had planned too soon after Christmas.
Talking about these fudgy chocolate brownie cookies, a few might wonder what these are. To those people, this recipe makes brownies that are actual cookies. Commonly called as brookies, these resemble actual cookies with the taste of brownies.
These fudgy chocolate brownie cookies are chewy, chocolatey, super fudgy, gooey in the middle and have a cracked and beautiful outer shell. You know, I can go on and on about these cookies. Anyways, have these cookies once and you will forget brownies and switch over to these fudgy chocolate brownie cookies whenever the brownie fever hits you!
To add more to the decadent chocolate taste, you can also sprinkle some sea salt on top of the cookies before baking. And, the best thing about these cookies is that they get baked in just under 15 minutes. Awesome, right?! Brownies are everyone’s favorite. But I am pretty sure these fudgy chocolate brownie cookies will sure top even that.
The Christmas Series has just begun in our blog. Many more delicious recipes are on the way! It is a very busy month for everyone I guess because the Christmas series is then followed by the New year series too! So, enjoy looking at all the drool-worthy pictures and do try them at home too!
Enjoy these fudgy chocolate brownie cookies with your loved ones for this Christmas. Stay safe; stay healthy! Happing cooking and eating! Merry Christmas to everyone!

Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Cookies
- ½ cup unsalted butter, diced
- 200 grams compound dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 large eggs
- ⅔ cup granulated white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Add butter and chopped dark chocolate on a pan and melt on low heat stirring constantly.
- In a mixing bowl or a stand mixer, add the eggs, white sugar and brown sugar.
- Beat on medium heat for 5 minutes.
- Reduce the speed and pour the melted chocolate gradually and mix to combine.
- Sift together all the dry ingredients – all purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
- Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture and mix until just combined.
- Pre-heat the oven for 180°C and line baking trays with parchment paper. Use an ice cream scoop to drop the dough balls onto the prepared trays.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes in the pre-heated oven. Let it cool off in the tray before moving them onto the rack. Cool completely and serve the cookies.
- While melting the butter and the dark chocolate, make sure you stir constantly to avoid chocolate from burning.
- Melt the chocolate in the lowest heat possible.
- While dropping the dough balls onto the prepared trays, make sure you space them out evenly as the expand while baking.
- Depending on the thickness of the cookie you want, flatten the dough accordingly.
- The cookies will be dome shaped when it is out of the oven. It will eventually flatten when cooled.
- Before transferring to a wire rack for cooling, let it cool in the tray for 10 minutes. The cookies will be very soft and transferring them immediately out of the tray will only break them.
- You can sprinkle the dough balls with some sea salt or even chocolate chips.
- Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, depending on the size of the dough ball. Extend to 15 minutes, if it is still uncooked.
- These cookies stay good for a few days when kept in an air-tight container.
