A Little Of Everything Brownie Cookies

For some reason, I just wasn't happy making simple chocolate chip cookies this time. It gets a bit old making the same cookie over and over. As I looked through my baking recipes, I saw that this brownie recipe and thought I could adapt it. I dragged all my bags of chips and toffee and divided them up to equal the amount the recipe called for. When the kids and hubby tasted them, they were a big hit. You can add whatever kind of chips you like.

A Little Bit Of Everything Brownie Cookie

1/2 cup butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate baking squares, chopped
2 cups chocolate morsels, divided
1/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup toffee bits
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted

Combine butter, unsweetened chocolate and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat when butter and chocolate melt. Cool.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla on medium speed with a mixer. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Add chocolate mixture and beat until blended. Stir in remaining chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chips and toffee bits. Add nuts. Stir well.

Drop 2 tablespoons of dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Keep dough at least 1 inch apart.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on wire racks.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

"Number one, I absolutely love making chocolate chip cookies. I mean, it's fun. It's exciting. Beyond the fact that I love making them, I love eating them."
