  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Set aside.

    In 3-quart heavy saucepan, cook butter, baking chocolate and 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate are melted. Remove from heat; cool.

    In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. On low speed, gradually beat in flour mixture. Add chocolate mixture; beat well. Stir in toasted pecans and remaining 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.

    Line cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. Onto cookie sheets, drop dough by 2 tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart. Bake 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Expert Tips

  • When baking, only bake with one cookie tray in the oven at a time on the center rack. We like alternating between two cookie trays, so the next tray is always ready to go in the oven. To prevent cookies from heating up prematurely, wait for the cookie sheet to cool completely before preparing your cookie dough balls.
  • Make your own brownie cookie ice cream sandwiches. Just place a scoop of ice in between two cookies and enjoy. Roll your ice cream sandwich into your favorite topping such as chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or small candies for a sweet and tasty crunch.
  • Store these brownie cookies in a sealed container to keep them soft and chewy.
  • Take a shortcut and make brownie cookies with the help of Betty Crocker™ dark chocolate brownie mix! See our recipe for Brownie Mix Cookies for the full recipe!
