Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Brownie or Cookie?

We love chocolate in our house.  Honestly, I am sometimes surprised to see how much my kids like chocolate.  They definitely enjoy it more than I do and I really like chocolate.  This was my first time making brownie cookies and I used Scharffen Berger cocoa powder.  It is my preferred chocolate for baking.  You can really taste the quality of the chocolate in these.  These are perfect cookies because they are chewy and taste like a brownie!

Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies
from For the Love of Dessert

1 1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  

In a medium bowl; whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda. In a large bowl cream together the butter and both of the sugars until light and creamy. Add in one egg at a time until well blended followed by 2 tsp. vanilla. Gradually add in the cocoa/flour mixture. Gently mix in the two cups of chocolate chips and spoon out onto prepared pans. Bake in your preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will be puffed up a bit but will settle as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Do not over-bake.
