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!

Why This Recipe Works

  • No fancy ingredients! They're made with ingredients you may likely have in your pantry already.
  • Brownie Drop Cookies are much like brownies, they're moist, gooey, and rich.
  • These cookies have a melt-in-your mouth texture.
  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • The cookie dough will be liquidy and won't look like typical cookie dough. They will spread as they bake in the oven so be sure to space the cookies 2-inches apart on the baking sheet.
  • Be sure to use parchment paper or a silicone liner to line your baking sheet. This will prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet. These cookies tend to stick to the parchment paper if underbaked. If this happens, simply use a stiff metal spatula to unstick the cookies by sliding the spatula far underneath the cookie, and carefully life them from the pan.
  • Make sure to let these cookies cool slightly before enjoying them. If you eat them straight out of the oven, they will fall apart.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Best Chocolate To Use In This Recipe?

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.

How Do You Store Brown Drop Cookies?

Store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days at room temperature.

  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!
