If you had to choose, which would you prefer – vanilla or chocolate?


I would always answer vanilla, but the truth is that if you give me a really good bite of something dark chocolate, I’m in heaven. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always choose vanilla ice cream over any sort of chocolate ice cream, but there’s something about high quality chocolate and that just feels like the ultimate treat.

And so, I’m ending this year’s Christmas Cookies Week with a recipe for all of you chocolate lovers out there. These Brownie Cookies are rich and indulgent. I made them with chocolate chips and pecans but you could easily change that up – they’d be amazing with white chocolate and dried cranberries, or perhaps some peanut butter chips. But I’m not going to stop there. Save the recipe for summer – these decadent little morsels can only be improved by a little vanilla ice cream in between them, making an amazing ice cream sandwich.

One last time, huge THANKS to Ellen at Family Around the Table and Christie at A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures for hosting this week-long festive event. I have today’s recipes from my blogging friends below, but if you’d like, you can also search #ChristmasCookies on social media or follow the #ChristmasCookiesWeek Pinterest Board.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate chopped
  • 9 oz. semisweet baking chocolate chopped (see recipe notes below)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 c. chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. In a double broiler, melt butter and baking chocolates. Stir occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat an allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  2. While the chocolate is cooling, preheat the oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat.
  3. In the bowl of stand mixer, combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium until incorporated. Reduce speed to low and slowly add flour, baking powder, and salt. Scrape down sides of the bowl. Return mixer to low speed and slowly add in melted butter-chocolate mixture. Scrape down sides of the bowl and again with the mixer on low (or fold in by hand with a rubber spatula), add in chocolate chips and pecans until just combined.

  4. Using an ice cream scoop, portion dough onto prepared baking sheets, placing about 1-1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until set and cooked throughout.

  5. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  6. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe Notes

This recipe calls for 9 oz. of semi-sweet baking chocolate. You can also use 1 1/2 c. (260 grams) of semi-sweet chocolate chips, if desired. The original recipe calls for chocolate chips, but I've been making these cookies with baking chocolate instead.

I used vanilla extract from our sponsor, Adams Extract in this recipe.
