One Bowl Chocolate Brownie Cookies

One of my favorite recipes for brownies is the recipe I found years ago inside a box of Baker's chocolate. They're called One Bowl Chocolate Brownie Cookies. My favorite chocolate for this recipe is Ghiradelli 60% Cocoa Baking Bars. I added some toasted pecans and made them in my brownie/mini tart mold pan and served them on a pillow of sweetened whipped cream garnished with fresh raspberries.

One of My Favorites!

• 6 oz bittersweet baking chocolate
• 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
• 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
• 1-1/4 cups sugar
• 3 eggs
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1 cup flour
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 cups toasted chopped pecans or hazelnuts (optional)

Heat oven to 325 F. Microwave chocolates and butter in large microwavable bowl on high for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring halfway through heating time. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Stir sugar into chocolate mixture until blended. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls, 1-1/2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 12 minutes or until set. DO NO OVERBAKE. Cook 5 minutes, remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.

Makes about 3 dozen.

  5. A brownie sitting on a pillow of whipped cream, doesn't get any better! Sweet post, Susan :)

  6. Susan, what an adorable little dessert ... just the perfect size AND so beautifully presented.

    Nothing much easier than a one bowl recipe.

    I hope your SIL loved it and am sure Kathleen will appreciate the sentiment.

  7. Those look So decadent! One bowl too! Excellent!! Beautiful presentation :)

  8. Such a beautiful presentation of a perfect chocolate brownie. The recipe looks like a great one to try and I'm been thinking of getting one of those little brownie bundt pans for garden parties. Were they hard to remove from the pan?

  9. Oh, you are killing me!
    That looks delicious, and since I didn't get a birthday cake, may I have it now?
    Thank you so much for thinking of me!
    And baking for me too!
    I love it!

  10. Yummy dessert! Happy Birthday, Kathleen!

  11. What a pretty picture! Those cabbages make an excellent background. Great gift to Kathleen :-)

  12. Hope you enjoyed them and had a great birthday, Kathleen.

    Marsha, to answer your question, I took a pastry brush and lightly brushed the insides of the mini bundt molds with melted butter before I added the batter. After I allowed them to cool a few minutes, I placed a rack over the pan and flipped them over and they fell right out beautifully.
