Reviews for Jumbo Brownie Cookies
"Delicious and very easy to make-loved the fact I didn't have to get out my mixer. I used my large cookie scoop, but not the 1/4 cup size and got 31 nice sized cookies. It was a bit tricky to get them done, but not over-baked, so I watched them closely. I melted the chocolate and butter together in the microwave on 50% power, a minute at a time, until it was melted, stirring after each minute. Took only 3 minutes. And, I didn't have chocolate chunks, so I used a package of semi-sweet melting wafers I'd been looking for something to use them in. Very chocolatey, delicious cookie!"
"These are the best of both worlds- the chocolately soft center of a brownie, with the crisp edges of a cookie. I knew right off the bat that I wouldn't be using the chocolate called for- I am the only dark chocolate fan, and 60% would be way too much for my guys. I used Nestle Dark chocolate chips instead, which are 53%. And even though it says the espresso powder is optional, I highly recommend it. You don't taste COFFEE, it just brings out the chocolate flavor."
"I used Ghiardelli chocolate and the espresso powder. I might leave the powder out next time. Delicious and fudgy and my husband and son loved them. I will definitely make again. I used a 2 TBSP scoop and got about 24 cookies."
"3 Stars because this is a question (wish there was another way) so don't scold me.Anyone tried making this as a bar cookie. I want to cut out with heart shaped cutter."
"Amazing! I made these on two separate occasions this week and they were a hit each time! I substituted the chocolate chunks and did half with mint chips and the other half with white chocolate chips. I left out the espresso powder. I also used less than a 1/4 cup for smaller cookies. I will absolutely make these again!"
