The other day, as I was sitting there thinking about chocolate and butter, I thought... if you can make cookies with cake batter, then why can't you make them with brownie mix?? I think brilliant, deep, intellectual thoughts. So off to the store I went in search of brownie mix. And then I made deeply rich, chocolaty cookies with a fudgy interior and a crusty, brownie-like exterior. Did I mention the gooey chocolate chunks? I'm a genius.
