I know I just posted about weight loss and fitness but Lindsey and I decided again that we needed chocolate, yes again needed, (haha). So instead of just eating Nutella or chocolate chips I remembered this brownie recipe that i made and the past that was also pretty quick.
From this book:

So here it is:

Sticky Chocolate Brownies

• Grab a small sauce pan and add: 1 TBSP Light Corn Syrup, 3 oz. Butter, 3/4C. Superfine Sugar, 1/2C Brown Sugar, and 4 1/2 oz. Semi Sweet Chocolate .

20130313-222354.jpg(I didn’t have superfine sugar so I used regular but the consistency is better with superfine.)

20130313-222404.jpg (I used more chocolate then recommended, I added some mini choc chips, some white, and 2 squares super dark)

• Heat gently until combined well.

• Meanwhile, add 2 eggs, and 1 tsp. Vanilla extract to a mixing bowl and whisk.

As the book says….

20130313-232339.jpg “it will still be quite stodgy and soft to the touch.”

Gooey S’more Cookies!

20130201-211747.jpg

We are all so exhausted from this whirlwind of a week but it was so awesome! Having Rusty J, Sabrina, and Sierra here was fantastic, we all had a blast with the whole group.

After everyone left yesterday Lindsey called and wanted to bake, I was so tired we decided to wait and relax last night instead. But I want to share these cookies I made for Sierra. She loves S’mores so I made:

Gooey S’more Cookies

I started with a basic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

2 Sticks Butter
1 C Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 TBSP Vanilla
2 to 2 1/4 C Flour

After the base batter is done:

• Crush some graham cracker

• Add mini marshmallows or if you only have large ones cut them up.
(That’s what I did – this gets messy so I used powdered sugar to help ease the sticky mess when cutting)

• Mix that all up well

• Scoop onto prepared pans, due to the marshmallow I recommend a little cooking spray on the parchment.

• Cut up a bit more marshmallow for the top of each cookie
