One-Bowl Brownie Cookies

A super easy recipe for chewy, fudgy chocolate cookies made with Sweetened Condensed Milk and just a few other ingredients!


You know that corner piece of the pan of brownies that everybody fights for? The one that has the lacy, chewy, crackly edges that makes for the perfect bite because it’s nuzzled up next to the fudgy, pillowy soft part of the brownie?

That’s exactly how I describe these cookies! It’s like getting the perfect bite of brownie in every bite of every cookie in the whole batch!

These are fudgy and chewy and crispy and tender all at the same time! The chocolate dial is set to 10 but perfectly balanced by the condensed milk. I could eat a dozen of these in one sitting!

And the best part? There are only 7 ingredients – 6 if you don’t count the pinch of salt! Well, there are two best parts actually… the other is that this is a one-bowl recipe so clean-up is a cinch!

You can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate chips, milk and butter or just do like me and add them all to a glass mixing bowl then microwave for one minute, stir, then continue heating at 30-second intervals until everything is perfectly melted and smooth.

About the nuts… I know someone will ask so I’ll say this: you can make them without the nuts but they’re better with them! I’ve only ever had these with pecans but I’m sure walnuts would be divine especially since they’re commonly used in brownies. I think almonds would be great too.

I got this recipe from Mama who got it from a friend so I have no idea what the origin of the cookies is. On her friend’s hand-written recipe card, they’re just called Chocolate Cookies so I wasn’t sure what to call these.

Just “Chocolate Cookies” isn’t much of a descriptive name and doesn’t really do much to explain what’s so great about these. I thought about it for days and it came up with several names but in the end, I decided on One-Bowl Brownie Cookies.

I think the sweetened condensed milk is what gives these cookies their chewy texture and what makes the recipe so easy! I considered calling them Sweetened Condensed Milk Chocolate Cookies but, Lord, that’s a mouthful!

A super easy recipe for chewy, fudgy chocolate cookies made with Sweetened Condensed Milk and just a few other ingredients!

ingredients:

  • 1 12-oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups finely chopped nuts

instructions:

How to cook One-Bowl Brownie Cookies

  1. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper (or coat with cooking spray). Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter (either in a glass mixing bowl in the microwave or in a double boiler) until completely smooth, stirring well.
  3. Remove chocolate mixture from heat (if applicable) or microwave then stir in salt, flour, vanilla and pecans. Mix until well combined then drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets (see note below).
  4. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the edges are set but the centers are still slightly soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then remove to cool completely.

NOTES:

If your dough is hot, the cookies will naturally flatten and spread a bit when you portion the dough out onto the pan (this is good - this is what you want). If the dough has cooled, the cookie portions will remain in a firmer "ball-like" shape, so you will want to spread/flatten them out a bit for cookies that look like the ones pictured here.
I prefer pecans in this recipe but almonds or walnuts would be delicious too!
I’ve made this with all-purpose flour and really couldn’t tell a difference but since the recipe Mama has says “self-rising” then so am I. If you use AP flour, bump up the salt to 1/4 teaspoon.

  4. I don't know what happened with these cookies but they look nothing like the picture! Did not spread at all. Just a round ball.

    1. Hmmm... I don't know. The only thing I could think would be your batter was cooler than mine so the cookies held their shape more? Or maybe I stir mine longer so the batter was more pliable? There's an almost identical recipe online from RecipeGirl called 7 Minute Cookies and I notice that her cookies are rounded as well.

  5. These were pretty good. They definitely taste like a fudgey brownie with a gooey center vs a traditional cookie. My scoop made 31 cookies and I baked them 8-9 minutes. I’ve made a note on the recipe to flatten them a bit before baking next time so they are thinner and a bit less gooey. But there will be a next time as these are quite tastey and more portion controlled then my usual piece of brownie. I will be freezing 1/2 of these so I hope that goes well too.

  6. I made these a couple of days ago and they were delicious. I did bake mine about 9 minutes. My husband and a friend at work thought they were a little too rich in chocolate (gasp!) but I love them. We tried them with a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream and that made the perfect combination. Love that it's one bowl and love that it's all ingredients I keep on hand. Thanks for another great recipe!

  7. Made these yesterday and didn't tell hubby what they were. When he tasted one he said, "This is like eating the corner of the brownie pan!!" We're thinking of making ice cream sandwiches with them tonight :0)

Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
