Chocolate Cravings

I wanted chocolate.  Brownies sounded good, but the 4 boys in the house wanted cookies.  I decided Brownie Cookies would work.  I didn't like any of the recipes I found, especially the parts that involved chilling the dough overnight.  Not only did that not work for my chocolate craving, it DEFINITELY didn't work for the boys. The two older boys helped me create and mix together this delicious cookie concoction.  Warning, this is NOT a healthy recipe, but it is sooooo yummy! 

So to Gabe & Nathanael, thank you..... we developed a winner!
