  • 1 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (20g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (180g) chocolate chips or chunks
  • Mini marshmallows, for topping (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven and Prepare Baking Sheets:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  2. Melt Butter and Chocolate:
    • In a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the butter and chopped semi-sweet chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth and combined. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  4. Combine Sugars and Eggs:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add Chocolate Mixture:
    • Gradually pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, stirring until well combined.
  6. Incorporate Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
    • Fold in the chocolate chips or chunks until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  7. Form Cookie Dough Balls:
    • Using a cookie scoop or spoon, portion the dough into balls and place them onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
    • Gently press a few mini marshmallows onto the tops of each cookie dough ball, if desired.
  8. Bake the Cookies:
    • Place the baking sheets in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the centers are slightly soft.
    • Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once cooled, serve the Hot Chocolate Brownie Cookies with a mug of hot cocoa for the ultimate winter treat. Enjoy the cozy comforts of chocolatey goodness with every bite!


  • For an extra indulgent touch, sprinkle a pinch of flaky sea salt on top of each cookie before baking.
  • Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or freeze for longer storage.
