Brownie Drop Cookies

These Brownie Drop Cookies are just like fudge brownies in a cookie form. They're soft, rich and completely decadent!

If you ever find yourself in the middle of a chocolate craving, I've got the perfect recipe for you.  It's quick, it's easy and it's intensely chocolatey. These little Brownie Drop Cookies are a cross between a brownie and a drop cookie - so for lack of a more creative name, I'm calling them Brownie Drop Cookies and they are awesome!

Brownie Drop Cookies are much like brownies, they're moist, gooey and rich.  Instead of pouring the batter into a baking dish, you simply drop the batter by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake them like cookies.

Brownie + Cookies = Brownie Cookies.  Easy to make and you don't have a baking dish to clean.

These Brownie Drop Cookies have a melt-in-your-mouth texture.  They're fudgy and gooey without falling apart and they have a texture like little brownie bites, which is perfection to me.

These Brownie Cookie Drops are on the small side because you're using a spoon to drop the batter onto the baking sheet.  Perfect to satisfy a craving.

Besides the taste, I love that these cookies are simple.  Other than the bowl the chocolate is melted in, there's only one other bowl to clean.  For these Brownie Drop Cookies, I use Baker's Brand German Sweet Chocolate.  German Sweet Chocolate is a little sweeter than semi-sweet chocolate, but don't worry if you can't find German Chocolate, semi-sweet will work just fine.  I also added about 1/4 cup of chopped pecans too.

I'm pretty sure these Brownie Drop Cookies are my family's new favorite cookie.  They even made me promise to make them as soon as I got back home...which I happily did.

  1. I’m with ya on the ‘quick results’ bit! Amen and amen! I think it’s part of being a self-diagnosed ADD person 😉 Haha! But, these look absolutely fabulous and tasty! Fudgy brownie in a cookie? I think, Yes!

    these look amazing and I think I could revamp some to Gluten free. I use oatmeal and brown rice flour which is a great combo. Thanks!
