What do you do when you're home alone on a Tuesday afternoon, writing blog posts when an overwhelming craving for chocolate comes over you? You make a batch of brownie cookies and eat them warm hot out of the oven.
I was posting pictures for my Master Chocolate Chip Cookies when I just had to get up from the computer and find some chocolate - FAST. (Power of suggestion I guess.) My go to chocolate fix is chocolate chips but on this particular day, that was just not going to cut it. I needed something deep, rich, dark and chocolaty to sink my teeth into. Then it hit me - I had a recipe for brownie cookies saved to one of my pinterest boards. Yep - a chocolate brownie cookie was exactly what I was craving.
I pulled up the recipe from pastryaffair.com and started baking. These were even easier to make than I thought. Almost too easy really - this recipe could be dangerous. I better have a batch ready the next time I need to write a blog post about chocolate.
Yields about 18 cookies
4 tablespoons (56 grams) butter
3 ounces (85 grams) unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 ounces (55 grams) semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 large eggs
3/4 cup (150 grams) brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup (95 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (85 grams) chocolate chips
Drop batter by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until set.
Cool for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Add a glass of milk - chocolate perfection.
Chocolate craving? Not this girl. I've got brownie cookies.
Once I have my cookie in hand, I could keep going on the Christmas decorations. I've got a few more things to put up before I can officially declare this house "decorated" but I've got a pretty good start on it.
I may be taking this Christmas decorating too far - I decorated Mia! (She secretly loves wearing her jingle bells.) This weekend we will put up our tree and then the decorating will be finished.
