Triple Chip Mudslide cookies

Triple chip Mudslide cookies

These are a wonderful cookie – fudgy, soft and made with three kinds of chips – semisweet, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. They stayed nice and puffy too, which I love. Flat cookies are not my bag.

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. (Don’t directly pour from the bag into the measuring cup). I recommend chilling the scooped out dough for a few hours to prevent cookies from spreading. I also recommend you preheat your oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions – in a bowl, combine butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, yolk, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Blend in dry ingredients. (You may need to use your hands to mix it all together if your mixer can’t get it done. Stir in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and roll into balls. Chill a few hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Stagger cookies on sheet. Bake 11 minutes (no longer). Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a day filled with peace and joy. And remember to be kind. Your kindness may be just what some one needs.


Spruced up brownie mix brownies

Nothing wrong with using a good old brownie mix!

I got a late request for brownies with chocolate chips from my president taste tester, Rob. So I grabbed a brownie mix and was looking to spruce it up. I know you can make various substitutions (melted butter for oil; cold coffee, milk or heavy cream for water), so I did that here. I also added some baking cocoa and chocolate extract.

Thursday night treats!

Remember to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Also, line your pan with tin foil and spray it with baking spray. I like to do this with brownies and bar cookies because it keeps the edges softer.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 1 tsp chocolate or vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a 9×13 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. Set aside. In a bowl, combine brownie mix, baking cocoa, eggs, cream, oil and extract. Blend in chocolate chips. Evenly spread into lined pan. Bake 13 to 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Sprinkle hot brownies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Topped with a dusting of powdered sugar
