Amazing Brownie Cookies

I have the WORLD'S BEST cookie recipe to share with you today!!
My husband loves brownies, I love cookies
- marry the two and these cookies sure are amazing!!

I modified this recipe to make it my own.
1/2 c room temp butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg at room temp
2 t vanilla
1 heaping c flour
1/2 heaping c cocoa powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c mini M&Ms - save a handful to top the cookies with before baking
(I picked out all of the red ones so they would be festive for Valentine's Day)

Recipe makes 18-20 cookies.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Cream together butter and sugars, Add egg, vanilla and all of the dry ingredients.  The batter will seem thick but it's supposed to be that way.  Stir the chocolate chips and most of the mini M&Ms into the batter with a spatula.  Remember to save some of the M&Ms to add onto the top of the cookie dough balls.
 Use your cookie scoop to scoop out the dough.  Put on a greased cookie sheet and bake.  The edges will seem done and the middle a little gooey.  Be sure to let the cookies cool for several minutes on the warm cookie sheet before removing them.

 Bake for 10 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet.
 Transfer to wax or foil paper to finish cooling.
You should probably taste test one or two just to make sure they are good :)

 After cooling for about an hour, they'll be ready to plate.
 Such a happy, plate of cookies!!

These cookies are my new favorite recipe!!  They are so easy to throw together and I always have the ingredients in my pantry.  They are delicious warm and become chewy as they cool.  I am anxious to make them again because they didn't last long.  I also love the how lovey, dovey, valentinesy they look.  I'm sure that I'll make these throughout the year and use all of the colored M&Ms but the red is especially fun this time of year!!  I hope you give them a try SOON.  Be sure to let me know how they turned out for you.
