well, so you know how the world was supposed to end last Saturday? Apparently the guy who predicted that changed the date to October 21. Mark your calendars! Just tryin to keep ya in the loop. I don’t know, but I’m pretty convinced that he just keeps changing the date for until he dies. (Eh that sounds horrible) I mean no disrespect, but have you seen him?? It’s a miracle in itself he’s still alive. Turning 90 in July! That is impressive. Well keep chuggin big guy!
Anyways, on to cookies! I’ve seen many recipes for this and they all look so good!! I’ve tried a few of those double chocolate cookie recipes before. I like them, don’t get me wrong, but they just don’t taste like the right chocolate to me. Maybe it’s just me. I’m pretty convinced that it is the cocoa powder that is doin that for me so I figured these are worth a shot since they just involve melting, mixing and baking.
These brownie cookies, have you heard of them? Have you tried em? I thought they might be exaggerating. But MAN, these do taste like brownies! I didn’t think it was possible, but boy was I proved wrong (which obviously doesn’t happen often, wink wink)
These unique little guys have a pretty cracked top with a nice ooey, gooey middle and then a bottom that has this texture that just somehow finished it off perfectly! It feels weird to talk about the bottom of the cookie, but trust me, when you make them you will understand. These are quite rich, glass of milk or water is definitely recommended!
