Double Chocolate Brownie Mini Chip Cookies


How is it that Mondays come so fast? Had such a great time in AZ over the weekend. Went by so fast, but glad we got to see our family for a couple days.

Well, to cure those Monday blues, I will be sharing with you one chocolate lovers cookie if I’ve ever known one! This cookie is packed with chocolaty goodness and went over well with my boys, even my son who’s not a major chocolate lover. Both gave them the stamp of approval.

I know it might seem weird to have to make a brownie mix for just 3/4 cup, but just bake the rest of the brownie mix and have some brownies with your cookies ๐Ÿ™‚

Found these cute little Easter-ish plates at Target, aren’t they adorable? I think they were $1.99 each! Y’all will love this one, take a peek.

Double Chocolate Brownie Mini Chip Cookies

1/2 cup softened butter

1 Cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 Cup sour cream

3/4 Cup prepared brownie batter of choice (I used Pillsbury)

2 Cups Flour

1 Cup cocoa powder, I used Hersheys

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

12 oz bag mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and well combined. Add egg, sour cream and brownie batter until well combined.

2. Place flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with mini chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.

about 3 dozen cookies


a few highlights of our trip to AZ….

Love this boy! I think he had to snap a picture for me in order to get a quarter for the quarter machines. This is what I got!

I HATE being away from my sister! Lunch at Nielson’s in Mesa was so much fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Love this…playing at “Grawpa’s”

Quad rides at “Grawpa’s” with Dad ๐Ÿ™‚

My boys want a dog soooo bad. Over the weekend they got to spend time with all of their favorite AZ dogs, including “Slim”

Have a great new week, happy baking ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, love those plates! They ARE adorable. Those cookies look yummy…that’s interesting that they call for prepared brownie mix. I suppose you could use brownie batter made from scratch…

    Those look so good. With the leftover brownie mixture, you could also make mini brownie muffins (like the ones sold in the big containers and are pure deliciousness.) ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of my favorites. Using the Silpat Mat makes it easy to bake and easy to clean up afterward.

    So, once again you have shared an awesome recipe with my family! I made this recipe last night and they are very rich tasting cookies. So since I am the only one who loves rich chocolate in my house, I just paired up two of these cookies with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, dabbed some whipped cream on top, drizzled with caramel syrup and sprinkled chopped pecans on top! OH MY! The cookies made it divine!!
