Football friday for week 9 part 1 – Brownie mix cookies

Brownie mix cookies

A simple, yet great way to get your chocolate fix. Brownies, yet in cookies form. Plus, they take less time to bake than brownies, 10 minutes, as opposed to 20. Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into you measuring cup and preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking.

  • Ingredients
  • An 18.3 oz brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, combine brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water. Fold in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and place on baking sheets. Do not put too close together bc they spread a little. Bake 10 minutes. Sprinkle warm cookies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Cookie monster!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with peace, joy and love

Flourless chocolate cake

Flourless chocolate cake!

Happy Valentine’s Day! A perfect treat for today, or any day, really (provided you love chocolate). A flourless chocolate cake. Super easy to make and my chocolate loving hubby called it the best dessert I ever made!

Tips – preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used 60 percent)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Spray an 8 or 9 inch round cake pan with baking spray. Line the bottom of the pan only with parchment paper (I actually traced the pan on the parchment paper to get the right size). In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chips in 40 second incremens until you can stir it smooth. Add sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Fold in cocoa. Spresd into prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes. It may look undercooked, but it is not. Let cool completely.

  • Ganache ingredients
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions – heat cream in a microwave safe bowl for 45 seconds. Pour over chips. Let set for 2 minutes. Stir smooth. Pour over cake. Store in covered container.

Thank you for stopping by. ❤
