I won Taste of Home's brownie contest years ago and these brownie cookies are wonderful! They taste like really good brownies! I like them better than my chocolate cookie recipes.

These are sooo good. I made half the drizzle and for the remaining half of the cookies I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. My husband preferred the ones with powdered sugar-however-he ate all of them regardless of the topping.

I've made these cookies twice and they are just to die for! Even my husband who's not much of a fan of sweets can't stop munching on these bad boys :)

The first time I made these was for a cookie exchange at my church. They were such a hit that every year I get requests to make them again. My son-in-law begs for his own batch. The only thing I change is eliminating the shortening for the drizzle.

I bakes these only 7 min. and they came out just the way I like brownies - just a little bit underdone.

Super good, I did modify by shaking alot of powdered sugar instead of drizzling chocolate on top

Although I love chocolate, I did change a little bit. On the second batch, instead of drizzling with more chocolate, I sprinkled powdered sugar on top.

My daughters would probably rate these with 5 stars. They are delicious but I had some trouble with the recipe. My cookies came out extremely chocolaty with the amount of unsweetened chocolate called for. That's not bad except I was expecting a lighter color cookie. Also, the dough stays stuck to the spoon and if I try to form balls instead, it sticks to my hands, too. For the drizzle, I would really rather melt the chips alone. Using the shortening prevented the drizzle from drying and then the cookies stuck to each other.
