Don’t be fooled by the fact that they only have 6 ingredients, these Crinkly Brownie Cookies are rich, fudgy and totally addicting!
These cookies are a perfect Valentine’s day treat and the best part is they are so completely easy to make! As I was making these over the weekend I was also making the Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes and the funniest part was how similar these recipes are. If you haven’t checked out that recipe you really need to, it is the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert!
The batter for these cookies will seem super liquidy at first, but by the time they come out of the fridge they will have the consistency of chocolate fudge. I just scooped them with a coffee scoop and rolled them into little balls. While the first 6 were cooking, I put the other balls of batter in the fridge to keep them cool.
When they come out of the oven they will look like little puffs, even more so than the picture below. By the time they cool they will just look like a delicious thick cookie. The real treat you’re in for is how much like a brownie they taste! Fudgy, crackly and chewy all at the same time. The outside is chewy while the middle of the cookie just melts into your mouth.
