Reverse Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies

These Reverse Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies are the perfect Halloween treat!  Seriously, this cookie dough is unbelievably good.  It’s basically a soft, brownie cookie that is pretty near impossible to resist.  Every year, I come up with a fun treat to deliver when we “Boo” our nieces and nephews. If the idea of “Booing” someone is foreign to you, you’re not alone. I didn’t grow up doing this but it’s the new neighborhood Halloween tradition where you mysteriously drop a treat at someone’s door.

Back to the cookies. You can get creative with your decorating and make them very festive. I’ve become pretty obsessed with Fancy Sprinkles – the options are ENDLESS. And what kid doesn’t like candy eyes all over their cookies? Henry literally begs me to just eat the eyes on their own. This dough also freezes really well, so you can make it ahead and freeze the dough balls and take them out when you need them. Also, feel free to sub in semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips for the white chocolate chips to make them extra chocolatey. Simply put, if you like chocolate, you need these Reverse Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies in your life. Happy Halloween!

Reverse Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies

Soft brownie cookies that are the perfect Halloween treat!
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Chill Time: 1 hr
Total Time: 30 mins
Servings: 30 cookies


  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

For Decorating


  • In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy - approximately 2 minutes.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Add in the white chocolate chips and mix by hand until they're incorporated.
  • Chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 30-60 minutes; preheat the oven o 350F.
  • Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper and scoop 2 tbsp of cookie dough with a large cookie scooper (looks like a mini ice cream scooper and makes baking perfect cookies so much easier).  Place the dough balls 2" apart and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the middles are set and the edges are firm (I did bake mine for the full 10 minutes).
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before decorating.
