Blogger Finds is back. When I started my blog I would end each month paying tribute to other bloggers and their recipes. Now that I’m back on track I’m back with my Blogger Finds. I found this recipe a few months ago but without a camera I could not do these cookies justice. For chocolate lovers like me this recipe is a keeper. It does use a box brownie mix and that can be a pain since I don’t normally have one on hand. Anyway, these cookies were found at Life's Ambrosia. Des has a wonderful blog, great pictures and she up-dates often. Check her out.
Here is the copy of the recipe as seen on Life's Ambrosia. The only change that I make is to use whole-wheat flour. The chocolate in these is so worth all the extra calories. Join me and go out and get a box of brownie mix and get baking! Even Stretch can't keep away from these cookies!
Fudgy Brownie Cookies Makes 20-30 cookies
You will need: · 1 package fudge brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines) · 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour · 1/4 cup packed brown sugar · 2 eggs · 1 stick butter, melted, cooled · 2-3 tablespoons cold water · 1 cup dark chocolate chunks (I found of bag of dark chocolate chunks but if you can’t just chop a dark chocolate bar into chunks)
1. Whisk together flour, brownie mix and brown sugar. 2. Using a heavy spoon, stir in eggs one at a time. Followed by butter and 2 tablespoons water. If the batter appears like there is too much flour add 1 more tablespoon of water. Batter will be very thick. 3. Fold in chocolate chunks 4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. 5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 6. Grease a cookie sheet. 7. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on the cookie sheet, you want pretty thick cookies here to get the brownie feel, about 3 inches apart. Press down slightly. Don’t flatten completely. Bake for 8-10 minutes. 8. Remove from oven; allow to cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
