Last week I shared my favorite recipe for homemade caramel. This week I want to give you a delicious Fudge Brownie Cookie recipe that is perfect for topping with that homemade caramel sauce! These cookies are rich and chewy just like a perfect brownie but in cookie form. It’s one of my family’s favorite desserts.
Salted Caramel Fudge Brownie Cookies Recipe:
- 2 2/4 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups raw sugar
- 2 1/2 sticks butter
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp real vanilla
- homemade caramel sauce
- coarse ground sea salt
In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda.
Use a stand mixer to blend the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs one to a time blending as you add them. Add the vanilla and reduce the mixer speed.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and blend until dough consistency forms.
Transfer the dough to a covered bowl or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. The longer you refrigerate the more firm the dough will be when you’re ready to use it.
When the dough has been refrigerated long enough preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Scoop out 1/4 cup size portions of dough. Roll into a ball and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Flatten the cookie balls leaving them approximately 1/4″ thick.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
Remove the fudge brownie cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once the cookies are cool you’ll drizzle with the caramel sauce. If it’s been refrigerated bring it to room temperature before trying to drizzle.
I added a small amount of salt to the caramel when I was making it to make it a “salted caramel”. The slightly salty caramel offsets the sweet chocolate cookie.
Drizzle the caramel over the chocolate cookies using a spoon.
While the caramel is still soft sprinkle with a small amount of coarse ground sea salt.
Once the caramel sets up a little, your Caramel Salted Fudge Brownie Cookies are ready to be served. The gooey, sweet, salty, chewy cookies are a perfect fall treat! Do you love salted caramel? Do you think you will try making these fudge brownie cookies?
