Brookies??? If that isn’t a word it should be. My nephew and wife have started up Silver Star Chocolate Company, and these cookies were the perfect way for me to try out their chocolate. OMG. So so good.
- 8 oz chopped dark chocolate – 60% recommended but their chocolate is a higher percentage so I used half semi sweet chocolate
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup & 2 tbsp packed, light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350
Melt butter with chopped chocolate and set aside to cool slightly.
In a lare bowl add white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer for at least 7 minutes. (honestly – 7 minutes). If you have a stand mixer use that – and set your timer. 7 minutes is a lot longer than you think it is if you are holding an electric hand mixer. This is what allows the eggs to create that luscious crinkly top when baking.
Mix in the melted chocolate and butter.
Sift together flour, cocoa powder salt and baking powder. Stir into egg/melted chocolate mixture just until combined.
Use a small scoop and scoop on to parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies for 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes to set before transferring to a cooling rack to completely cool.
These cookies are absolutely fantastic! Made originally for Christmas giving, now I love to keep them in the freezer for that moment when you just need a brownie!
