1. Salted Brownie Crinkle Cookies Recipe


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Flaky sea salt, for topping


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and granulated sugar until well combined.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

Sift in the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until a thick, fudgy dough forms.

Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoons and roll them into balls. Place the dough balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the tops are cracked and the centers are still slightly soft.

Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately sprinkle them with a pinch of flaky sea salt.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

The key to achieving the perfect crinkle top on these Salted Brownie Crinkle Cookies is to resist the urge to overbake them. The centers should still be slightly soft when you remove them from the oven, as they will continue to set as they cool.

The combination of the rich, fudgy chocolate, the crackled tops, and the delicate crunch of the flaky sea salt creates a flavor explosion in every bite. These cookies are sure to become a new favorite among chocolate lovers and cookie connoisseurs alike.

Serve these Salted Brownie Crinkle Cookies alongside a tall glass of cold milk or a steaming cup of coffee for the ultimate indulgence. Enjoy the sheer decadence of this irresistible treat!
