Do you need to make a dessert really fast? Tired of the same old brownies? Then try this! I found the recipe on the back of a Ghiradelli brownie mix box: Chocolate Overload Cookies. All you have to do is mix up the brownie mix with a stick of butter, an egg . . .
and some semi-sweet chips, white chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts:
The batter is really thick. I used a hand mixer for this, but big globs of chocolate kept flying out of the bowl, so next time I”ll use the big mixer with a deep bowl for a more orderly mixing experience.
I used a medium cookie scoop (1 T. size) to drop them onto the cookie sheets:
After baking them for 13-14 minutes, voilà! You have Chocolate Overload Cookies!
Next time I might add some chopped up mini-marshmellows i/o the white choc chips.
I don’t usually use mixes, but from now on I’m always going to keep an extra box of Ghiradelli brownie mix in my pantry in the event of another baking emergency!
