He Said, She Said Brownies

He wanted Brownies.  She wanted Chocolate Chip Cookies.  She only wanted to bake one dessert.  She wanted to make him happy after working a long hard week in freezing weather in Connecticut.  After all, he is a Florida boy.  She  combined the wants and needs of these two lovebirds.  She must be a BRILLIANT woman!  This was the day that the Brownie met the Cookie.  Brownie + Cookie equals “Brookie”, and Cookie + Brownie equals “Coonie.” Which is it?!  I don’t know and I don’t care.  All I know is we were two happy people that weekend.  We each got what we wanted plus a bonus dessert.  A bite into this baby and you get a taste of rich chocolate followed by a chocolate chip cookie.  Have a mat on the ground ready to cushion your fall because you just…might…pass…out when you take a bite.  At the very least you will groan, moan and your eyes will roll back in your head.  It is just that good.

Beat in chocolate mixture and pecans until combined. Now I am really having to use my will power. I just want to spoon every drop of it into my belly.

Oh hello girls, I did my best to make sure a few pecans fell on the floor.

While these “Brookies” or “Coonies” were out of this world, satisfying what each of us wanted was the real prize.  These need to be in your life.  Call your husband or kids into the kitchen and tell them you have a “Coonie” for them, I guarantee they will come to love the “Coonie”, or the “Brookie”, or the Chocolate Chip Cookie topped with a Brownie!

Enjoy!
