Some people love brownies, and some people love cookies, but most people, myself included, love both. For all of them, these are a revelatory dessert. All of the chocolate decadence of a brownie in cookie form. The key to this magical crossover dessert is large quantities of melted chocolate and eggs which give the cookies a fudge-like texture. Simple to make and guaranteed to please, these cookies should most definitely make their way into your life. You’ll never look at brownies or cookies quite the same way again.

    Oh my..they look SO very good!! But they have SO many eggs in them! I wonder what they results would be with less eggs?

      My suspicion is that the eggs are part of what lends them their brownie-like texture. I think you could probably cut back on the eggs, but the result wouldn’t be quite as chewy and cake-like. Let me know how they turn out if you experiment!
