Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night I made two recipes to review.  I am reviewing the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies today, and the Parker House Rolls tomorrow.

Recipe:  1 box walnut brownie mix, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of oil, 1 cup chocolate chips.

Mix together, put in refrigerator for up to an hour.  Roll heaping teaspoon into a ball and put on ungreased cookie sheet or silpat (my favorite).  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.

These are my families favorite cookies.  I have been making them for over 30 years and do not even know where I originally got the recipe.

I had to change the recipe because, just like other foods, brownie mixes are now smaller than they were previously.  Doesn’t this really irritate you?  Like soup and toilet paper? I didn’t realize that and had used the two eggs.  I noticed they were much more liquidy (is that a word?) than ever before.  No biggy though, I just added some flour to get the correct consistency.   Originally they would make a 9 inch square pan, now they make only an 8 inch square.  If you find a brownie mix that makes a 9 inch square, use two eggs.

Do not overcook, they should look kind of shiny and not quite done.  Let cool for five minutes before plating.
