These were fantastic with a nice cold glass of milk. I might make them smaller next time for easier dunking, and because to the guys, no one eats just one cookie, not even when it's a jumbo one. Thank you to Rebecca C for sharing her recipe!
Jumbo Brownie Cookies
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 2/3 cups 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips -- I used Nestle Dark (53%)
1/2 cup butter -- cubed
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder -- optional (I used it)
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package semisweet chocolate chunks -- (11-1/2 ounces)
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat; cool until mixture is warm.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, vanilla and, if desired, espresso powder until blended. Whisk into chocolate mixture. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt; add to chocolate mixture, mixing well. Fold in chocolate chunks; let stand 10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly.
Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 3 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until set. Cool on pans 1-2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
