Taste and Texture:
- fudgy brownie Cookies
- Filled with Chocolates of 3 kinds
- And then dotted with m&ms for crunch and texture
- Crisp edges and chewy centers
Chocolate Cookies Ingredients:
- Butter: We are using melted butter and mixed with melted chocolate to create that brownie like cookies.
- Brown Sugar: Along with granulated sugar, this recipe calls for some brown sugar to create fudgy cookies.
- 2 Eggs: You will require room temperature eggs. Beat them well with both sugars.
- Chocolate: Don’t reach for chocolate chips here. Use baking chocolate instead. The better the quality of your chocolate, the better your cookies!
- Chocolate Chips: I like to add semi sweet chocolate chips since I don’t like my cookies overly sweet. You may add milk chocolate chips if you prefer.
- Flour: All purpose flour is the base of these cookies.
- M&ms: Both mini or regular m&ms will work here.
