Brownie Batter Frosting


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup flour

Salted Triple Chocolate Brownie Batter Cookies


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 batch Brownie Batter Frosting, divided in half
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup dark chocolate candy melts
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a stand mixer, combine the egg yolk and ½ of the Brownie Batter Frosting and whip until incorporated. Add baking soda and flour, and continue mixing until smooth, about 2 minutes.

2. Scoop tablespoon-sized balls of cookie batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8—10 minutes. Do not over bake or cookies will be hard.

3. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack. Once cool, frost each with a small dollop of the remaining Brownie Batter Frosting.

4. Heat dark chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 30-second intervals until melted and smooth. Carefully spoon about 2 teaspoons of chocolate over each frosted cookie to cover the frosting, then sprinkle with a few crystals of coarse sea salt.
