Chocolate chips and a convenient brownie mix provide the rich chocolate flavor in these sweet cookies from Ellen Govertsen of Wheaton, Illinois. Rolling the dough in powdered sugar gives them their inviting crackled appearance.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2014

"Great recipe! After reading other reviews, I used 1/4 cup of water. But it looked a bit crumbly so I added a little more. Making it about 1/3 cup. After my first batch was done, they hadn't spread much so for the second batch I dipped a fork into the confectioner' sugar and pressed the dough like you would for a peanut butter cookie. I also extended the cooking time to 11 minutes. They were perfect! I'll definitely use this in the future."
