Chewy Fudgy Brownie Cookies

I am finally getting around to posting on my little neglected blog.  Between my 5 kids doing online school right now (so no computer time for me), and son #3 blowing out his knee and requiring surgery, the blog has been rather low on the priority list of late.

But, this brownie cookie recipe is worth the wait.  I know there are a lot of recipes for brownie cookies out there and a lot of them are definitely delicious, so I won't go touting how mine is the best or anything, but this recipe is my favorite. 

So, without wasting anymore of your time here is my version of brownie cookies...

Chewy Fudgy Brownie Cookies
1 cup butter
1 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2/3 cup cocoa
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
2 cups flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and 1 3/4 cups chocolate chips together at 30-second to one-minute intervals, stirring between each one, until melted and smooth.  Set aside to cool to about room temperature.  Add the brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, cocoa, salt and soda and stir well.  Finally add the flour and stir just until combined. Mix in the 3/4 cup chocolate chips.  Chill the dough about 1 hour.  Scoop the dough (I use my 2 tbsp. cookie scoop) and roll into balls.  Put about 2 inches apart onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes until set around the edges but still soft in the middle.  Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
