Brownie Bites

Brownies…in the form of a cookie.

Brownie Bites

I made them for the first time yesterday. Oh. Man!

INGREDIENTS:

4 squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350.Microwave chocolate & butter on high for 2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, mix well. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.

Bake 8 minutes, or just until set. Let stand on baking sheet 1 minute; transfer to wire racks and cool completely.

Try to stop at just one. It won’t happen.
