Sharing is caring!

Hello, dear readers! Today, I’m thrilled to share a recipe that’s bound to become a favorite in your household – Crumbl Cosmic Brownie Cookies. These delightful cookies combine the rich, fudgy goodness of a brownie with the nostalgic joy of rainbow-coated chocolate chips, making them a perfect treat for any occasion.

I first encountered a version of these cookies during a family vacation. We stumbled upon a charming little bakery tucked away in a small town, and the smell of freshly baked goods was irresistible. Among all the delicious treats, their cosmic brownie cookies stood out, and I knew I had to recreate them at home.

This recipe is quite straightforward, but don’t be fooled by its simplicity. The combination of Dutch processed cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and a rich fudge frosting makes these cookies decadently delicious. I love adding a personal touch by sprinkling extra rainbow-coated chocolate chips on top, which not only adds a burst of color but also an extra layer of fun.

Feel free to tweak the recipe to suit your preferences. If you’re a fan of dark chocolate, try using dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. For a festive twist, you can substitute the rainbow chips with holiday-themed sprinkles. These cookies are perfect for sharing with family and friends, whether it’s a cozy evening at home or a festive gathering.

So, preheat your oven and let’s get baking. I promise these cookies will bring a smile to anyone’s face!

How to Prepare Crumbl Cosmic Brownie Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup cocoa powder (dutch processed)
  • 2/3 cup cream (heavy)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (rainbow coated)
  • 1 1/2 cups butter (salted and softened)

Directions

  1. Set your oven to preheat at 350°F.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine the softened butter with the brown and white sugars until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  3. Blend in the eggs, corn syrup, and vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
  4. Add the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, mixing until a soft chocolate dough forms.
  5. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, each slightly less than 1/2 cup. Shape into balls, flatten into puck-like shapes, and arrange 6 cookies per baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the cookies begin to crack and the centers are no longer wet.
  7. While baking, make the fudge frosting by heating the heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 1/2 minutes, until boiling.
  8. Submerge the semi-sweet chocolate chips in the hot cream, letting them sit for 3 minutes before whisking into a smooth mixture. Set aside to cool.
  9. Once baked, let the cookies cool on the pan for 10 minutes. Spread the frosting on each cookie, sprinkling with rainbow-coated chocolate chips while the frosting is still wet.
  10. Enjoy your warm, fudgy treats!

FAQs:

Can I use unsalted butter instead of salted butter for this recipe?

Yes, you can use unsalted butter instead of salted butter. However, you might want to add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt to balance the flavors.

Is it possible to substitute the dutch processed cocoa powder with regular cocoa powder?

While you can substitute regular cocoa powder for dutch processed cocoa powder, it may affect the flavor and color of your cookies. Dutch processed cocoa powder is less acidic and gives a richer, darker color and smoother flavor.

How can I store the leftover Crumbl Cosmic Brownie Cookies?

Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. If you want to keep them longer, you can refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them for up to three months.

What can I do if I don’t have a stand mixer?

If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer or mix by hand with a sturdy spoon. Just make sure to mix the ingredients thoroughly to get a smooth and well-combined dough.

Can I make the dough ahead of time and bake the cookies later?

Yes, you can make the dough ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes before portioning and baking.

Is there a way to make these cookies gluten-free?

To make these cookies gluten-free, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Make sure the blend contains xanthan gum or add it separately to help the cookies hold their shape.
