Back in November of last year I had the pleasure of participating in a virtual cookie exchange with some of my blogger friends.
And these moonpies a recipe that Debra got from her Grandma.
Well, these cookies are so delicious that my husband and I decided to play around with the recipe a bit.
Debra had a delicious mocha glaze over the tops of the cookies that we decided needed to be the star of the whole show, and we wanted it to be a simple frosting.
So I thickened the glaze by adding some more powdered sugar.
Oh my gosh are they good!
The cookies themselves were perfect as is. No recipe adjustments necessary there. Soft brownie cookies that are delicious by themselves.
But, top them with that mocha frosting and the become irresistible.
And, well, you may want to make a double batch of that frosting. I’m just sayin’! It’s so good!
I made a second batch recently of just the frosting, and I ate it on all kinds of things. Try it on crackers, on granola bars, with a spoon, and, of course, on these Brownie Cookies!
These make the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert. Or, the perfect addition to a Christmas cookie exchange.

Brownie Cookies with Mocha Frosting Recipe
Brownie Cookies with Mocha Frosting
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder, set aside. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or with parchment paper, and set aside.
- Mix the egg, sugar, and vanilla together in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer. Add the sour cream, ½ cup at a time, until well combined.
- Once the wet ingredients are well combined, add half of the dry ingredients. Continue adding the dry ingredients by spoonfuls until all of the dry ingredients are combined, stopping a couple of times to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all of the ingredients.
- Using an ice cream scoop, drop the cookie dough by scoops onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake, 12-14 minutes, or until the cookies are baked through.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
- For the icing, combine the coffee, melted butter, and cocoa powder and whisk together well. Add the powdered sugar and mix well.
- Once cookies are completely cool, slather them with the frosting.
