Recipe - Triple Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

These cookies are the perfect chocolately indulgence.  They are chewy like a brownie and crispy like a cookie!  Instead of drizzling the white chocolate on top, I tried to make heart shapes, for the whole Valentine's Day theme, but the hearts didn't turn out so well.  I think that was a combination of my bad piping skills and the melted chocolate was too runny.  I'd opt for the drizzle next time for sure!

Triple Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

Makes 2 dozen
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (preferably natural, not dutch processed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (divided in half)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon confectioner's sugar
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  In the top of a double boiler melt 1 cup of chocolate chips and butter. Stir occasionally to combine the butter and chocolate.  

In a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda.  In a mixer with the paddle attachment, pour the melted chocolate and butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs.  Mix on low to combine.  Gradually add the flour mixture.

Add the remaining chocolate chips and use a spatula to combine.  

Use clean hands or a small ice cream scoop and shape into 1 1/2 inch balls.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake at 325 degrees F for about 13-15 minutes.  Be careful not to burn them.  Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet on top of a cooling rack.

Once the cookies have cooled, melt the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler.  Drizzle chocolate on each cookie and place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 2-3 minutes.  

My pretty bad heart decoration....

... and how these cookies should look!

These cookies are great served hot out of the oven without the white chocolate drizzle too!
