MM Brownie Cookies

We are kicking off Christmas Cookie season with MM Brownie Cookies. Just think brownies and chocolate cookies collide. These cookies are so soft and so chocolatey. I added some MM’s to add a little crunch, color and more chocolate.

These cookies take a few steps to make, but oh so worth it. They are a great cookie to make ahead of time. they freeze so well baked or unbaked. I start by whisking the dry ingredients together. Next I beat the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl for 5 minutes. While they are beating together, I like to melt the butter and chocolate together. If you are using a hand mixer, just melt the butter and chocolate after the eggs are done.

I gave these cookies to a couple people to try and they all loved. In fact my friend’s hubby said I wasn’t allowed to make them again. He ate them all in one day, he was like they are dangerously delicious.

These cookies will be a huge hit for your friends and family and any cookie exchange you are doing this year.

Happy Christmas Baking 🎄

Tips

Make sure eggs are room temperature, so they don't scramble when mixed with the melted butter and chocolate. Dough can be frozen for 3 months, just scoop and place in a freezer bag. Baked cookies can be frozen up to 2 months. You can substitute chocolate chips, nuts or another chip in place of the MM's.
