Chocolate Toffee Brownie Cookies only have 5 ingredients and all you need is a bowl and a cookie sheet. Start with a boxed brownie mix and with a few additions you’ll have amazing chocolaty cookies. So EASY, and take very little effort.
I put Natalie in charge of desserts for the summer and she has come up with come great ideas. She discovered Sprinkle Cookies, S’more Cookies, and Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies (I’ll be sharing these soon). And finally a dessert she can make in her dorm. We had to make a few batches to get them just right, but after a couple of tries, we came up with a version that is easy to make, with minimal ingredients and utensils. While most of the recipes on my blog don’t include a boxed mix, I understand that sometimes you either might want to make something quick, or like Natalie, don’t have a full kitchen and need something easy. Starting with a boxed brownie mix, is not the end of the world.
Trust me, you can make fabulous cookies without even a hand mixer. She especially liked these because they were slightly soft with a rich chocolate taste. Initially we added extra chocolate but that made them too sweet, so we went with toffee bits instead. Of course if you want more chocolate, you can throw in some chocolate chips, but we really didn’t think they needed it.
With school starting back, you never know when you’ll get a last minute request for cookies, or just have a craving for some chocolate while watching Netflix with your roommates. Pass this along to any college students you know, there’s nothing like cookies when you’re making new friends.
