Ultimate Chocolate Brownies Cookies - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Feeling bored at home?

... because you are practicing social distancing?

You are not alone. Whether the Covid infection rate is low or controlled, I still prefer to stay at home. Dunno why but I believe that infection is not going to be absolutely zero or until we are all vaccinated against this highly infectious virus.

Sad to say that I'm right. The Covid community transmission are increasing in Melbourne! We are going backwards, tightening our restriction rules again. So, let's continue to stay safe and stay at home...

If you have nothing to do at home, bake something!!!

If you are after an easy chocolate cookies recipe that is mostly made with chocolate, chocolate and chocolate, you will love this chocolate-loaded cookie recipe!

I have to say that THIS is one of the most comforting recipes that help us to survive through the toughest Covid time from March to May. 

I called these the ULTIMATE chocolate brownies cookies because they were made with minimal flour, butter and sugar, and lots of chocolate, even more chocolate than the Extremely Chocolaty Fudgy Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies at here and Nigella Lawson's Totally Chocolate Cookies at here!!!

These super-chocolaty bittersweet brownies-like cookies are the BEST being gooey, fudgy and heavenly on the day when they were freshly baked. Although they won't be gooey with the embedded semi-melting chocolate on the next day, these soft moist fudgy chocolate cookies can taste equally heavenly with their super rich chocolaty taste. My son said that these cookies taste really really really good with a glass of cold milk.

This is why I prefer to bake the minimal amount of these cookies at one go and bake these cookies very often! LOL!!!

Here's the recipe that is adapted from here.

Makes about 15-18
200g dark chocolate with 70% cocoa - I'm using Callebaut dark chocolate callets with 70% cocoa
30g unsalted butter
100g (1/2 cup) light brown sugar

1 large egg, at room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
35g (1/4 cup) plain/all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
150g (3/4 cup) dark or milk chocolate chips - I'm using Callebaut dark chocolate callets with 54% cocoa

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line baking trays with baking paper.

Melt the chocolate with the butter in a small saucepan over low heat or microwave using low power.

Set aside to cool for 5 min. Combine sugar, egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and mix until just combined.

Sift flour and baking powder into the chocolate mixture and mix until just combined. Then, stir in the chocolate chips. IMPORTANT - Do not over-mix!

Scoop large heap tablespoonful of dough onto the prepared tray. Bake for 10 min or until they are firm at the edges. IMPORTANT - Do not bake these cookies in smaller sizes because large cookies with less surface area to volume ratio and more body can retain more moisture inside. 
Do not over-bake the cookies and it's ok if the freshly baked cookies are soft in the middle. Allow cookies to cool and firm up slightly on the tray for 5-10 mins, then transfer onto wire racks to cool slightly further or completely.

Serve and enjoy. These brownies-like cookies will be gooey when they are warm and freshly baked. They won't remain gooey when they are completely cooled but they will remain soft, moist and fudgy.

Store any uneaten completely cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up 3 days.

Happy Baking
