Chewy chocolate chip cookies … Where fudge meets brownie meets cookie.
Aside from the serious muscle required for stirring the dough, this is an amazingly simple cookie recipe. My mom used to make these all the time when I was growing up, and she learned the recipe from my grandfather. He was known for his decadent kitchen creations, and these cookies were always a family favorite!
Ingredients for chewy chocolate chip cookies:
1 box fudge brownie mix (the kind that calls for eggs, oil, and water)
? cup oil
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup white, milk, or dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°. Empty brownie mix into a medium mixing bowl.
You can buy fudge brownie mix that already has chocolate chips in it, but I preferred to buy the kind without so I make sure I’m getting a full cup worth of chocolate chips in my cookies!
Make a little well in the brownie mix to hold the eggs and oil.
Add the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Mix everything together.
The dough will be very stiff! I had to bring in the big guns (my strong and hunky husband) to help me stir.
Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet to form each cookie.
Bake in the preheated oven for 11 to 13 minutes.
Move the cookies to a wire rack and allow them to cool.
These chewy chocolate chip cookies are milk’s perfect companion. The way I see it, the nuts count for protein and the dough counts for a carb. I wolfed down three this morning and called it breakfast. 😉
