Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Chocolate Brownie Cookies. A crisp cookie with a soft and squidgy inside that tastes just like a brownie - need I say more? Make them and enjoy!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Plain Flour

2. Cocoa Powder
3. Baking Powder
4. Salt
5. Dark Chocolate 
6. Butter
7. Light Brown Sugar
8. Eggs
9. Icing Sugar

Bismillah, let's begin!

To begin, first mix all the dry ingredients together. Place 6 ounces (170 grams) of plain flour into a bowl.

Add 2 ounces (56 grams) of cocoa powder.

1 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Mix well, and set aside.

Next, put 6 ounces (170 grams) of dark chocolate into a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until completely melted.

Once melted, set aside.

Next, place 4 ounces (113 grams) of softened butter into a mixer bowl.

Add 8 ounces (226 grams) of light brown sugar.

Beat until well combined.

Crack in one egg.


Crack in a second egg.

Beat until creamy.

Then, add the melted chocolate.

And, the dry ingredients.

Mix well. The dough should be quite firm but still too sticky to roll into balls.

Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.

Then, remove from the fridge. Take a bowl of icing sugar.

Grease and line a baking tray.

Roll a tablespoon full of the dough into balls.

Roll them twice in the icing sugar. This step is completely optional.

Bake in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 4 for 12 minutes.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

Dust with more icing sugar, and serve!
