These One-bowl Chocolate Fudge Cookies are simple, quick and easily adaptable. They have all the flavor and texture of an intensely chocolate fudge brownie in a little mound of cookie goodness.
All the brownie experience with none of the mess.
Vary them according to your personal preferences: add different types of chocolate chips, chopped nuts, pretzel bits, dried fruit… 2 assorted cups of whatever makes you and your people happy.
Dutch process cocoa will give a deeper chocolate flavor, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
Be careful not to over bake the cookies: 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F is plenty.
