Fudgy brownie cookies are a delicious combination of two easy dessert recipes; brownies and cookies!
So I was craving chocolate the other day, well OK, I am always craving chocolate, but I finally decided to do something about it yesterday. I am a sucker for brownies and cookies so I figured why not put them together? And how about I throw in some dark chocolate chunks for good measure? The cookie recipe turned out delicious; slightly flaky on the outside, gooey and fudgy on the inside. AKA: The perfect chocolate lover’s dessert fix.
Since this was kind of a spur of the moment thing, I didn’t have all of the necessary ingredients to make brownie batter from scratch, so I used a box brownie mix (gasp!) that I had on hand to help me. I think that it worked perfectly and saved me a trip to the grocery store.

UPDATE: 2/2016 This recipe was updated to omit the 2 hour chilling time. Chilling the cookie dough for 2 hours does make it easier to handle, but the outcome of the cookies is the same.
Whisk together flour, brownie mix and brown sugar.
Using a heavy spoon, stir in eggs one at a time. Followed by butter and 2 tablespoons water. If the batter appears like there is too much flour add 1 more tablespoon of water. Batter will be very thick.
Fold in chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a cookie sheet.
Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on the cookie sheet, you want pretty thick cookies here to get the brownie feel, about 3 inches apart. Press down slightly. Don't flatten completely. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven, allow to cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
While the last step does say cool completely, these are amazing right out of the oven with a glass of milk. Enjoy!
