Recipe: Brownie Drop Cookies
Source: The Dinner Doctor
Party in the Tummy Scale: 8
A Brownie in a cookie? How much better does it get than that? DB and I whipped these up yesterday afternoon to take with us to our picnic in the park. The picnic was just as good as the cookies!
These are so easy to whip up, and great to make with young children. These were a BIG hit with DB, not so much with Coop (he doesn't do chocolate.. I think something is wrong with him), and a HUGE hit with R. R's words after eating a cookie: "These are good. These are really good! I want you to make these a lot... like every week".
I am not a huge brownie fan, but I did enjoy these. If you love brownies, you will adore these cookies... crispy on the outside like the edge of a brownie, and chewy in the middle, and delicious right out of the oven!
1 box brownie mix, with fudge included
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients except for chocolate chips in large bowl. Mix for about two minutes, until well combined. Then pour chocolate chips into batter and stir.
Drop batter by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should rise, but should still be soft in the middle. Remove from baking pans immediately and cool for 5 minutes.
Makes 50 cookies.
I made larger cookies... mine batter was tablespoon full size. This made about 24 cookies instead of the 50, and they also cooked longer... about 16 minutes. You can also add nuts, and play around withe the flavor by adding cinnamon, or even a little cayenne pepper for a kick!
