These copycat Crumbl dark dream cookies are thick, chewy, and full of chocolate flavor. Despite their height, they are not dry!
Well friends, we are at it again. The Crumble copycat mint brownie cookies were such a big hit at my house that I was asked to make another variety. Addie and I looked through some recipes, and the one where I had all the ingredients on hand were the ones for these dark dream cookies.
Like the mint brownie cookies, these baked up very tall and dense. They seemed to be a tad drier than the mint brownie cookies but otherwise had a great flavor. When we compared the two, the three of us agreed that we liked the other cookies better. The base tasted better and had a more firm texture. Plus, it had both mint buttercream and chocolate ganache toppings.
Addie has been happily taking half a cookie to school for lunch. She even told me that her friends get jealous and ask for little nibbles of her desserts!
I’m sure I’ll be back with more copycat recipes. Stay tuned.

Copycat Crumbl dark dream cookies
- ½ cup (1 stick or 8 Tablespoons) unsalted butter room temperature
- ¾ cup brown sugar packed
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 and ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅔ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus more for decoration, if desired
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
- Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix until everything just comes together.
- Add in the chocolate chips and mix until everything is combined.
- Using a large cookie scoop or two spoons, scoop out 10 even portions of dough.
- Roll each portion in the palm of your hands to form a sphere and place them on your prepared baking sheet. Make sure to leave at least 1-2 inches in between them.
- Gently press down on each sphere to flatten it to about 1 inch thick.
- If desired, add more chocolate chips on top and gently press them down into the dough.
- Bake in your preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Then allow them to cool slightly before fully cooling on a wire rack.
