This is a delicious cookie recipe. My nephew and niece cannot stop eating them! Deliciously chocolatey goodness in every bite. The best part is, they are nice and soft, which is the way I like them.

Winner! You know that delicate crackly top you get on brownies if you re lucky? And then how underneath that a soft and chocolaty brownie is revealed? And how if you include LOTS of chocolate chips in those brownies they are now gooey and even more intensely chocolate? Yeah these are like that. Don t change a darn thing. They re perfect. Too perfect if you know what I mean. Read More

I give these a 5 star! They taste just like a soft chewy brownie. They are very sweet you could probably cut down on the sugar if you wanted to but I like them this way. I only had 1 cup of brown sugar so I used 1/2 a cup of white sugar along with it and it turned out great! Read More

Yum! What a wonderful aroma while baking! I used bread flour to up the chewy factor and subbed milk for the tbsp of water. I used Ande's chocolate mint chips. Wonderful flavor and nice chewy texture. They also freeze very well. Will make again. Read More

I followed this recipe exact only using mini chocolate chips instead of the full sized ones. I baked them at 350 for nine minutes letting them cool slightly on the pan before pulling them off to cool on my kitchen counter. AMAZING little cookies. They taste EXACTLY like a brownie. The whole family LOVED them. One of the best cookies I've made in a long time. Read More

Perfectly chewy on the outside and soft on the inside- even when slightly over-cooked! Has a great chocolate flavor but is slightly too sweet. Read More

OK I have been trying out quite a few brownie recipes this summer and have not found the taste and texture I have been looking for until NOW. THIS IS THE ONE YOU WANT IF YOU LOVE CHEWY CHOCOLATEY BROWNIES - LOOK NO FURTHER!. I mixed up the ingredients for the cookies but put the mixture into an 11 x 7 rectangular pan at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and they turned out soft and chewy just like the cookies!!! LOVE THEM! THIS RECIPIE IS A KEEPER!!! Read More
