These Copycat Starbucks Flourless Chewy Chocolate Cookies taste just like the original chocolate meringue cookie. A crisp, chewy chocolate brownie like cookie made with semisweet and 60% cocoa. Chocolate. Brownie. Cookies. Nothing flourless has ever tasted so good.
Here is the deal with these cookies, once you make a batch I guarantee you will make another. My husband literally stashed the cookies away so he could have one every day after work. Which is funny because he isn’t the biggest sweet person, especially dark chocolate. So the fact that he loved these really surprised me. He loves them warmed up in the microwave a few seconds, I like them just at room temp. Here is the funny thing about my husband and his love for these cookies one afternoon after heating one up for a few seconds he topped it with a layer of Nutella. Oh. My. Goodness. So good. Rich, but oh so good. If you love Nutella, you’ve got to try it.
My kids love these cookies as well. After our first batch they were devoured and my kids asked me when I was going to make the next batch of brownie cookies and these cookies really do taste like a brownie.
So if you love brownies or chocolate or well anything just delicious, you will not just love these but you will devour them. Enjoy!
