Bliss in a cookie
I made these cookies for super bowl Sunday and they were a huge hit! They really are the perfect brownie cookies I have been searching for! I like that they are also pretty little cookies, with their shiny tops and mix of semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. They are perfect for when you want a dessert that is portable and pretty. Like a brownie without the crumbs.
Chocolate Bliss Cookies
(Source: The Cookie Bible)
1 package (8 squares) Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour (3/4 cups if you omit nuts)
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped Walnuts (optional, I left them out this time but next time I will definitely use them!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the semi-sweet baking squares in the microwave or on a double boiler, stirring often. Once the chocolate has melted add the sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla and mix well. Next add the flour and baking powder and mix well. Then add the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Drop the batter by rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 13-14 minutes. Cool 1 minutes then remove from baking sheet and finish cooling on a wire rack.
