Double Chocolate Brownie Cookie Bites




It's all about cookies today!!   I needed to make cookies and found these wonderful treats on It's Yummy to my Tummy.  Heather has several yummy cookie recipes but these Double Chocolate Brownie Cookie Bites sounded amazing.  Really, who wouldn't love cookies that taste just like brownies! 






I added nuts to one of my batches.  I even added mint to a batch. I put 1/3 of an Andies Mint inside the cookie ball for chocolate mint cookies!  I love how versatile these are.  They were awesome cookies and we ate a bunch and gave a bunch to friends.  Everyone loved them!   





Double Chocolate Brownie Cookie Bites Recipe


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine brown sugar and butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg.

Next, mix in flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts until all incorporated.

Scoop dough out by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 6 - 8 minutes at 375 degrees. Try not to over bake the cookies or else they will turn out hard.

  4. Your cookies are great, Debbi! Double chocolate works here, and with nuts is even better. They'd be gone in a flash here.
