Scoop out 1 & 1/2 tbsp on dough (I like using a cookie/ice cream scoop) and place onto the baking sheet. Dough will still be soft and have a texture similar to chocolate frosting. Leave 2 inches between each cookie.

Baking for 8-9 minutes or until cookies are set on the edges and has a crackle top. They will still look soft in the middle but will stiffen after cooling. Let cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before adding the ganache or moving.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

Where do I buy the rainbow candies?

You should be able to find them at any baking supply store. I am from Ontario, Canada and I find mine at Bulk Barn.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGGS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature ingredients break down easier in the batter. This will give you a fudgier cookies and gives you a shiny crinkle top.

If you forget to take your eggs out of the fridge, no worries! Just run them under warm tap water for a few minutes and this will bring them to room temperature.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

STORING THE COOKIES

Store the cosmic brownie cookies at room temperature in an airtight container. They keep for 4 days after baking. You can also store them in the fridge and they keep well up to 6 days. Just be sure to bring cookies to room temperature before serving.
