Okay, so apparently I was too busy raiding the Halloween Treat Bucket and baking cookies for Josh's birthday party with my family today (seriously, birthdays seem to last a week around here!) to realize that I was supposed to do a post on "all things edible" yesterday. Well, in truth, I have a serious love for food and would have had a very difficult time narrowing it down anyway. Sooo to make up for it, I'm going to pass on this uber-yummy chocolate brownie cookie recipe that so sweetly obliged my chocolate addiction. Oh, and it's super easy! It's from my usual source: kraftfoods.com. (And if you've never checked their site out before - they have the BEST recipes for dinner too!)
Mmm this may have to become a new staple cookie around here!
Chocolate Brownie Cookies
6 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
4 squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Chocolate

1-1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. CALUMET Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups toasted chopped PLANTERS Pecans (I used walnuts!)

DROP rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
