Sometimes you want a brownie really fast, ok, i mean sometimes you want brownie batter but don’t feel like having to cut brownies after a half an hour of baking then at least that long of cooling…. at 11pm. So instead, you google cookie recipes using brownie mix because, well that will get you to chocolate faster!
Basically to make brownie cookies instead of brownies you minimize the wet ingredients added to the batter, that way the result is scoop-able dough instead of runny batter. So you use 1 egg and a few tablespoons of water and oil, scoop them out and pop the cookies in the oven for 15 minutes. Ta-dah, brownie cookies. I added 4 peanut butter chips to each cookie so I wouldn’t eat them (I don’t eat peanut butter) and then ate the extra dough-batter and was sufficiently satisfied, yum, brownies in any form are always amazing.
