I enlisted the help of my little sister to help me make these Chocolate Dipped Brownie Cookies. Okay, mainly she did everything and I told her what to do from my chair :) It was .... interesting. My sister doesn't exactly cook or bake and she's not very good at it [hopefully, she's not reading this]. Somehow, everything ended up a-okay and the cookies were phenomenal. We've got a super soft, chocolatey cookie dipped in additional melted chocolate and then decorated with sprinkles. Good stuff. I ended up going to bed after
Love and Olive Oil)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 oz. dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup butter, cut in cubes
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup chocolate chips
2-3 teaspoons coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Set aside. Combine chocolate and butter in a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and set aside. In a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla until pale and creamy, about 8 minutes. Mix in melted chocolate mixture. Add dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated.
Drop batter using a small cookie scoop by the scant tablespoonful onto cookie sheet, leaving two inches of space between cookies. The batter will be somewhat loose at this point, but shouldn't be runny. It will thicken the longer it sits. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until tops are shiny and cracked. Like a brownie, you don't want to over bake these cookies. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a double-boiler. Dip half of each cookie in melted chocolate and top with sprinkles. Place on parchment paper to harden. Keep in an airtight container. YIELD: about 2-1/2 dozen cookies
Have a lovely weekend! x
