You will need:
16 ounces of semi sweet chocolate
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 1/3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
18 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips
Heat your oven to 350 degrees
Heat your semi sweet chocolate (break up the bar's) and butter. Make sure you don't burn it. You just want a smooth consistency. I heat mine in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Take it out and stir it in between.
In your mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar and vanilla .
Beat in the melted chocolate and butter.
Add flour, baking powder and salt.
Add your chocolate chips.
The batter is will be very liquid for a cookie mix so just be aware of that. I use my scoop to get even cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Start checking them before the 10 minute mark. You want them to be crackly and soft not hard. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes before removing them.
They taste more like brownies than cookies.
I saw someone decorate her cookies like this and I wish I could remember where I saw it so I could give her credit. She used fudge striped cookies and they looked more like witches hats than mine ended up looking. The people at my daughters work still enjoyed them!
It is still raining but the wind has died down. We lost power for about a second during the storm. Other than that, we only had one casualty.
This is the only branch we lost. It is much bigger than it looks. I did not want to go outside and get my slippers wet.
See that deck chair way over there? It got blown away. We were bad, we forgot to secure it.
My front lawn
The neighbors front lawn. The only good thing that came out of Sandy, the wind went in the right direction and blew all of our leaves over there. Sandy had to redeem herself somehow for making me miserable.
I need something to cheer me up today, perhaps some shopping? I need to snap out of my funk.
Have a great storm free day!
