These delicious pieces of heaven taste like a mixture between a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie. They always go very quickly, and were always a big success in care packages (for some reason they ship well, and they're so moist to begin with they still are yummy when they get there).
EDIT- As requested, the recipe:
I call them 2 bites, because as my neighbor said (before she stole my recipe ) was "I took 2 bites- one to taste it, and the other to shove the whole thing in my mouth"
2/3 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 TBSP water
1 TSP Vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa powder or dutch processed cocoa
1/2 TSP salt
1/4 TSP Baking soda
2 cups (12 oz package) Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts ( OPTIONAL. I've never put them in)
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Beat shortening, brown sugar, water and vanilla in a large bowl on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat well.
3. Stir together dry ingredients. Gradually add to wet mixture, beating on low speed JUST until blended. Stir in by hand chocolate chips.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. If using, sprinkle chopped walnuts on each cookie, pressing down lightly.
5. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cookies are set. Cookies will appear soft and moist. DO NOT over bake. Cool 2 minutes, and transfer from cookie sheet to a wire rack. Cool completely. About 3 dozen cookies.
Cookies will look like cake when they come out of the oven. If you over bake them, they will be hard on the outside edge.
I've sent these cookies in care packages and they were a huge hit- I guess even though they look fragile they traveled well.
I finally found the recipe source! "Chewy Brownie Cookies" on Recipe.com, with nuts withheld.
