Jumbo Brownie Cookies- 12 Days of Cookies

Day 4! These Jumbo Brownie Cookies from Taste of Home 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.  

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.
