It’s true, I spent Thanksgiving Eve not prepping food for an extravagant Thanksgiving dinner for my family but instead spent hours testing chocolate on chocolate cookies and then spent another hour photographing them. I’ll admit I got zero prep work done for dinner the next day. But that’s all fine for me because at the end of the night, I still had these death buy chocolate cookies to eat.


Four kinds of chocolate in the brownie cookies

Let’s talk about all the different types of chocolate I used in these death by chocolate brownie cookies:

unsweetened cocoa powder

unsweetened special dark cocoa powder

semi sweet chocolate chunks

dark chocolate baking wafers – for the pools of chocolate on top *insert yaaas queen hands here*

flaked sea salt – not chocolate but worth mentioning because it compliments the chocolate so dang well!

Reducing the sugar content

Death by chocolate cookies sounds like it would also be death by sugar cookies. Luckily that’s not the case here. The chocolate chunks and wafers are going to have however much sugar chocolate it has in it but you can reduced the sugar content in these cookies by using a granulated erythritol for the sugar and brown sugar. I used Swerve and highly recommend their baking blends!
