This chocolate churro Madeleine cookie recipe is the BEST! I'm talking rich chocolate churro central!!
The madeleine itself is a rich chocolate cookie that gets coated in a cinnamon sugar mix right after baking.
Madeleines are super easy to make, the only requirement is a Madeleine pan! I got mine on amazon for like $10 and they come in all different sizes and can be rubber or metal! If you decide to get a metal one, just make sure its non stick, otherwise you'll have a heck of a time getting them out of the pan after baking!
Here is a link to two Madeleine pans I have!
What is Madeleine Cookie?
Ok so technically they're not cookies, they're actually little butter cakes! But honestly, they're small and I can eat almost the whole thing in one bite so we're calling them cookies.
They are a French cookie and their signature shape is always a shell.
They're a bit crispy on the outside and cake-y on the inside. Their most common and typical flavor is made with fresh lemon zest and then topped with a lemon glaze.
Madeleines are perfect with your morning coffee, or just as a little dessert snack. How ever you decide to eat them, they're delicious any way!!! This chocolate churro madeleine cookies recipe is bound to be your new favorite!!
How to Make Chocolate Churro Madeleine Cookies
- In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Then use the whisk attachment to add the eggs and whip on high for 7-8 minutes. This is necessary for the madeleines to get their signature dome on top. They should be really pale and super fluffy when they're done!
- Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave in 10 second increments, stirring in between rounds until completely melted.
- When the eggs are done whipping, pour in the chocolate. Add the vanilla as well and mix to combine.
- Combine the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg and sugar mixture until combined.
- Pipe into a non stick Madeleine pan or well greased Madeleine pan. They should be filled about ¾ of the way.
- Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes, or until you can touch the top and it springs back.
- Let cool for 20 minutes, then carefully remove them from the pan.
- In a small dish or plate, combine the cinnamon and sugar together. Roll each Madeleine in the sugar until completely coated. If the sugar isn't sticking, you can brush each one with a simple syrup then roll them in the sugar. This will also help keep them a bit more moist for a few extra days to enjoy them!
- They typically last only 1 or 2 days before they begin to stale.
