If you’re anything like me, no amount of chocolate will ever be enough. Sure, I can practice self restraint when it comes to chocolate and desserts. But the question always arises, why? Why should I give up the sweet treat sitting right in front of me? Everything in moderation is okay. Right? And hey, maybe my definition of moderation is a far cry from yours. You say potato, I say patahto. But I digress.
Chocolate is delicious and should always be included in baked goods. I mean, do it in the name of health. They say some amount of dark chocolate is even considered HEALTHY. Amazing. Sometimes I run into the problem that I can’t decide WHAT chocolatey dessert I want. Some days I want brownies, other days I crave cookies and then there are the really hard days that I want both. So what better way to curve that craving than combining these two delicious desserts into one? Enter center stage: the double chocolate brownie batter cookie. It is moist and fudgy like brownies but has a solid cookie base. And oh, it’s filled with dark chocolate chips. YUM. Need I say more? I didn’t think so… let’s get down to business!
1 box of brownie mix (or you can make your own, but I’m a laze)
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (melted)
Water (as needed)
Dark chocolate chunks
Mix brownie mix, flour and brown sugar together until combined.
Mix in eggs and then melted butter. Dough will seem dry. Add in 2 tbsp of water to start. Add more water (1 tbsp at a time) as needed.
Mix in dark chocolate chunks until well combined. Try not to eat the dough (it will be HARD). Allow the dough to chill for at least 2 hours. I usually let mine chill overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet & bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow them to cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
These may be some of my favorite ‘easy’ cookies to whip together. I would stress the ‘chilling of the dough’ step. It really helps the cookies hold their shape during the baking process. Just make the dough the night before and have a little tasting of the dough to hold you over until you bake them 😉 !
Happy Baking! xoxo
