Cookies, chocolate, and peanut butter, sounds irresistible, right? Well, they also have melted chocolate inside, and chocolate chips, just heavenly. Where the name comes from, they will ask, is the combination of the words Brownie and cookies because they really have that buttery taste and smooth texture of the brownies…but they looks like ccokies.
They are quick to make, they have simple ingredients, and only take 12 minutes of oven, so they are ideal for when you crave dessert for breakfast, or just want to have a snack of 10 points.
The procedure is easy, mix all the ingredients in a bowl, with no need of any utensil other than a fork and a pair of bowls, divide the mixture and add chocolate to one half, mix, make two-colored balls and crush them until form the cookies, very simple and fun, am I the only one who has fun making cookies?
