Sometimes I crave chocolate. (Okay, if I’m being honest, I crave chocolate almost ALL the time, but that’s beside the point.) Sometimes I crave my chocolate in the form of cookies. Sometimes, I don’t feel like getting in the kitchen and baking said cookies. That’s why it is nice to have some very simple cookie recipes that you can turn over to your kids to make. Child labor at it’s best.
Please excuse the poor photos…it gets dark way to early nowadays!
My 12 year old wanted to make cookies around Halloween, and I had these cute little orange and chocolate morsels, so we checked out my Must Eat – Sweet
Pinterest Board and found this cookie recipe that uses a brownie mix. I knew my kid could handle it, so I set her on her way to make me
Soft Batch Double Fudge Brownie Cookies
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup water
2 large eggs, beaten
1 box Fudge Brownie Mix (around 18 oz)
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup orange and semi sweet chocolate chips (*use any you like)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (Ghiradelli)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the butter, water, eggs, brownie mix and flour until just combined.
3. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Scoop dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies, I think ours were about a tablespoon.)
5. Cool on a wire rack.
*it is best to slightly undercook these so that they still look a little wet and shiny, otherwise they will get dry.

These cookies taste like brownies. Enough said if you are a chocolate freak like myself.
