These delicious Kinder Cookies are chewy cookies with soft centers. They are packed full of chocolate chips and chunks of melted Kinder Chocolate!
The kinder and chocolate chip combination is highly underrated in my opinion! It adds a milky sweet melty chocolate to the cookies. This recipe also uses brown butter, which adds a nice nutty flavour to the cookies.
Transforming butter into browned butter is simple but makes such an amazing impact on your cookies. It only requires one ingredient too: butter!
This cookie uses the base from my Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies, which is a chewy cookie with a crisp edge.
Why this recipe works
Kinder chocolate – This chocolate is so underrated in my opinion and is so good! It brings a lot of delicious milky chocolate flavour to these cookies!
Buttery cookies – These cookies are large cookies, making the centers extra chewy with a crisp edge.
Easy to make – One bowl with no electric mixer required!
Butter – I used unsalted. This will be melted.
Kinder chocolate – I found these at my local grocery store. These ones are great quality!
Brown sugar – I used dark brown sugar, but light brown sugar works as well.
Eggs – Remove 2 hours before baking.
Chocolate chips – I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Dark chocolate also works, but I think milk chocolate would be to sweet.
Step by step instructions
Step 1 – Whisk in the butter and sugars. Whisk the melted and cooled brown butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined.
Step 2 – Mix in the wet ingredients. Whisk in the egg, and vanilla extract until just combined.
Step 3 – Mix in the dry ingredients. Fold in the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix in the chopped Kinder chocolates and semi-sweet chocolate chips until just combined. Make sure not to over mix!
Step 4 – Scoop and bake! Scoop 6 cookie dough balls per prepared baking trays. Space the cookies 2-3 inches apart from one another and bake the cookies until the edges are a light golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
After baking, transfer to a cooling rack. Let them cool for about 10 minutes then dig in!
Expert Baking Tips
- Use a gram scale for the most accurate measurements. To convert this recipe, click the ‘metric’ button next to the ingredients title on the recipe card.
- Make sure the brown butter is not hot when mixing. If it is hot, the dough will be to soft and the cookies will spread to much in the oven.
- If the dough is to soft to form cookie dough balls with, chill for 30 minutes.
- Make the brown butter first, so it can cool down as you measure the rest of the ingredients.

- Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and line two baking trays with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Brown the butter: Melt the butter in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Once it melts, it will crackle, then become foamy – continue mixing the butter while this happens to prevent burning. The butter will go from melted to golden brown quickly, and you'll know it's almost done when the aroma of browned butter arrives. The whole process should take about 5 minutes! Once golden, remove from heat and transfer to a glass bowl.1/2 cup butter
