Moist Brownie Batter Cookie Recipe May Be Better Than Brownies

Lately my 12-year-old has been talking about wanting to be a chef. So far we haven’t seen any evidence of an interest in cooking, but he does enjoy baking with me. He recently started making brownies (with a boxed mix) on his own. This is the perfect dessert for him because it’s easy enough for a new baker and he’s a bit of a choc-a-holic like his mama.

I was looking for other easy chocolate dessert recipes that he could make – without a boxed mix – when I came across several for brownie batter cookies. This brownie cookie recipe is perfect for him. I have a feeling it’ll be a hit with lots of adults, too. You may already have the ingredients in your pantry, you only need a bowl or two to make it and the dough drops from the spoon easily. Oh, and they’re also delicious! If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy either a brownie (cookie) sundae or scoop the ice cream between two cookies for a brownie ice cream sandwich.
