chocolate brownie cookies Bakers note: "ease: 4/5. prep time: 25mins. cooking time: 8mins. total: 33mins. taste: 4/5. My go-to chocolate cookie. I first made these beauties almost 3 years ago and yet I never forgot them, and am quite uncertain as to why I waited so long to make them again! I prefer to make larger cookies which yield a chewier, fudgy center that compliments the crunchy meringue shell beautifully. These cookies are dark and sweet and completely addictive. With the larger cookie size I ended up with 24 cookies."
