There's chocolate, thens there's chocolate!

So I found a recipe on line for Brownie Cookies…umm, what a wonderful idea.  But once again the ingredients I needed weren’t available. So, lets see what I can do to make some wonderful cookies for an upcoming activity at church.

I had a bag of chocolate chips that I had brought from America but the recipe called for a lot more than one bag of chips (that’s how I knew it would be a good recipe!) So I took 2 Dove dark chocolate bars and chopped them up!  Worked great.
Brownie Cookies

2 c of chocolate chips (or in my case chopped up Dove bars)
1/2 c of butter
4 eggs
1 1/2 c of sugar
1 T of vanilla extract
2/3 c of flour (all purpose)
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 c of chocolate chips ( 1 bag)

Melt chocolate chunks (chopped up Dove bar) with the butter and melt, stirring until smooth. Remove of heat, cool until mixture is warm.
In small bowl, combine eggs and sugar until blended, stir in flour, baking powder and salt, add to chocolate mixture stirring well, fold in the chocolate chips. Let stand for 10 minutes to firm up the dough.
I baked these on parchment paper at 170 degree C, or 350 degree F until set.  Cool for a few minutes on the pan to allow the cookies to set then remove to a wire rack.

I also stirred in one cup of chopped nuts. If you look at the original recipe, I changed the recipe a bit.  As you can see, just because you you don't have everything you need for a recipe, you still can make it with just a few changes!

My Motto is "Give me the Chocolate and NOBODY gets hurt!" I even have a button that says that. I think chocolate with caramel would make a good substitution too.

Oh I love the idea of Chocolate with caramel, I think I will try that next time.
