Chocolate overdose, here we come…

Recipe time! I discovered this one in The Brownie Lover’s Bible by Lisa Slater. It’s a dangerous book… 😉

These cookies are sort of a hybrid between cookies and brownies. They are really chocolate-y and really delicious. I can only eat maybe two at a time, and for a seasoned chocolate lover that is quite a surprising limit… 🙂

Brownie Blobs (yes, that’s the name…)
Yield: According to recipe, 22. I made 32 and they were still big.

1/2 c (112g)   butter
100g                 unsweetened chocolate
1/4 c (75ml)  cocoa
1 c (250ml)    brown sugar
3                         eggs
1 tbsp               vanilla or kahlua
3 tbsp               all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp             salt
1/4 tsp             baking soda
1lb (450g)      milk chocolate in chunks (yes, 1lb, it’s not a mistake!)
1/2lb (250g) chopped pecans

Melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter together. Whisk in cocoa and brown sugar. Let cool for 10 min.

Beat in eggs and vanilla or kahlua.

Mix together flour, salt and baking soda; add into the chocolate mixture and stir to combine.

Fold in milk chocolate chunks and pecans. Some of the milk chocolate may melt and that’s OK.

Scoop cookies onto a cookie sheet, leaving plenty of space in between. Bake in pre-heated oven in 350F / 175C for 10min; make sure not to overbake! Let cool for 5min before moving the cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Please enjoy responsibly! An overdose may result in shaky hands, bouncy movements, heart palpitations and shortness of breath. These cookies are especially dangerous while driving on a highway. Just sayin’….
