Here's what you need:
- 1 box of brownie mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup vege oil
- 3 tbs water
- <1/2 cup flour
- M&Ms or chocolate chips (optional, ended up not using them)
Combine ingredients. The recipe I found online called for 1/4 cup flour. I added that but felt the batter was still too liquidy (like for brownies instead of cookies), so I threw in another less than 1/4 cup scoop. I know, baking is supposed to be a precise science which is why I'm sooo not good at it. So bear (bare?) with me.
My hubs was helping me this time because he wanted to help cook and therefore not clean. Whatever. We decided to do a test batch with a couple of peanut butter M&Ms. In tasting, the M&Ms overpowered the brownie flavor and we'll save the bag for snacking. In the meantime, I also burned my thumb on the oven rack because I forgot to take a picture. The pic isn't even good. Blargh. See? Told you baking = not my thing.
During our test, the batter was left for a few minutes and stiffened which helped with the scooping. Do teaspoon-ish scoops onto your parchment lined baking sheet or silpat.
|let's just not say what these really look like.|
And there you go. Chewy chocolate brownie cookies. Mmm. Tastes exactly how you expect - like brownies! An easy snack for a Saturday afternoon.
