Brownies are lovely, but I am lazy enough to say that I really don’t like having to cut them out and use a little napkin and all that junk.  These are tiny two-bite cookie sized brownies that are perfect for the lazy girl in me, and in you too. 

I’ll be the first one to admit that chocolate desserts are not my favorite. I do get the occasional craving for chocolate, but on the whole I prefer vanilla for most things. Cheesecake is a favorite of mine, but I don’t really love chocolate versions as much.  Boston cream pie is probably my all time favorite dessert, but I almost always scrap most of the chocolate off the top in favor of only tasting the vanilla cake and vanilla custardcookies

That being said, when those times come around that I do crave chocolate, I really want a strong chocolate flavor. These cookies offer just that, by using a mixture of cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips.  The mini chips will stay soft in the moist cookies which helps with the gooey factor that I really love. Sometimes these cookies are referred to as crinkles because of the way the cookie peaks out through powdered sugar after being baked, but they really do taste like bite-sized brownies. They are very easy to make, and maybe a little bit too easy to eat! unbaked cookies
