Chocolate Brownie Cookies for Gloomy November Days

Zartschmelzene Brownie-Cookies

Chocolate Brownie Cookies! Seriously, I can only recommend trying these! They are so melt-in-your mouth, it’s crazy! If you are a chocoholic like me, these are for you, they scream chocolate, chocoalte, and chocolate again. You need to know that I have tried my share of chocolate cookies, especially if I am in the mood for baking something with chocolate, but don’t want it to take too much time. Chocolate cookies are perfect for that occasion. Trust me, these cookies are for you if you want to whip up something quickly and that satisfies your chocolate cravings.

Zartschmelzende Schoko-Brownie-CookiesLast weekend I had promised myself not to turn on the oven yet again. That’s because I had busied myself with gingerbread. Have you tried these tiny gingerbread houses, which you can actually place on your mug’s rim? Just so adorable! And then I also prepared a tiny wedding cake, like super small, four people tops could eat of it. It was nothing like the wedding cake I invented similar to the one of Meghan & Harry, but still a cake I baked. For that reason I felt that was enough for the weekend. But then this last Sunday was so gloomy in Hamburg, a typical November day and I was craving chocolate.

Zartschmelzende Schoko-Brownie-CookiesSomewehere I had saved the Chocolate Brownie Cookies from Knusperstübchen, a German blog, and I quickly checked whether I had all ingredients at home. I had, so I decided to quickly give them a go. It took maybe 15min and then I had them already in the oven. Oh boy, and then I tried them, and I ate more than I wanted, one after the next. Seriously, I am glad I managed to keep some for work to take along…

Cooking Time: 15min preparation + chilling + 10min of baking

These melt-in-your-mouth chocolate brownie cookies contain a lot of real chocolate and require some chilling to not overspread.


  • 225 grams of semi-sweet chocolate, possibly 70% or higher in cocoa content
  • 30 grams of butter
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 70 grams of white sugar
  • 40 grams of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, see here hos to make your own
  • 60 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 75 grams of chopped chocolate, whatever you like best



Either melt the chocolate with the butter in small increments, stirring in between, in the microwave or on the stovetop on low. Set aside.


Beat the eggs with the sugars and vanilla extract for about 2-3 minutes. Add the chocolate mixture and mix. Add flour and baking powder and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips last. Chill for at least half an hour in the fridge or overnight. If chilling more than an hour, bring to room temperature first before continuing.


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll cookies, using about one tablespoon per cookie, they will spread, I usually place about 9 cookies on one sheet. Bake for about 9-11 minutes, they will look underbaked, but this is correct. Let cool.


The cookies will keep for about a week if kept in an airtight container.
