This recipe has been adapted to fit my son, John’s, tastes with the addition of M&Ms on the inside and on top. If your kids love M&Ms and chocolate cookies, they’ll probably be big fans of these, too! – JM Farro
CHUNKY BROWNIE COOKIES
1 pkg. (17.6 oz.) Brownie Mix with Chocolate Chunks
1 large Egg
2 tablespoons Water
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
½ cup M&Ms for batter (optional)
M&Ms to press into tops after baking (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets and spatula. (I use Crisco.)
Combine brownie mix, egg, water and oil in large bowl. Stir until well blended and soft dough forms.
Drop by level measuring tablespoons about 2-inches apart onto cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7 or 8 minutes, or until cookies are set in center. Do not overbake.
As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press 3 M&Ms into the top of each one.
(If you don’t do this fast enough, the cookies will harden, and they won’t hold the candies in place.)
Transfer cookies to cooling rack. (I place them on foil or wax paper.) Cool completely before serving.
Makes about 24 cookies.
