If you mix a chocolate brownie and cookies what do you get? Why chocolate brownie cookies of course! I have rarely met anyone who doesn’t like cookies or brownies so this should go down a treat! From the minute you bite into it you will feel it is special. The outside is crunchy like the top of a brownie with a soft gooey centre just like a chocolate chip cookie. It has a rich double chocolate taste which will linger on your palette even after the last bite.
Most of the ingredients are whisked in the thermomix using the whisk attachment. This is very important as it adds air to the cookie dough as the melted chocolate can add extra weight. When baking, try not to over cook the cookies. Once cooked they appear to be too soft so resist the urge to return them to the oven! They harden as they cool and what you are left with is a chocolate brownie cookie crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. A chocolate lover’s dream!
Try and use good quality chocolate chocolate chips like Ó Conaill Chocolate which are my favourite chocolate chips of all time. You can buy these at the English Market in Cork or Mahon Point Farmer’s Market. Theirs is the first stall I rush to when I am there! They serve a great coffee too. Elsewhere, there are some other great alternatives online.
