These suckers are seriously easy, and amazingly tasty. They have been nicknamed “Cub Poops” in my house, because upon seeing them cooling on a rack, my 12yo promptly blurted out, “Hey those look like bear cub poops.” Boys have poop on the brain 24-7 – gross.
I love these because they start with a box mix, but that’s where the “storebought” ends – adding a bit of espresso to the batter kicks up the chocolate flavor, and although I used walnuts in this version – a salty nut, like a salted almond, walnut or peanut would go REALLY well – might try that next time!
Double Dark Chocolate Espresso Walnut Cookies
- 21 ounces dark chocolate brownie mix I like Duncan Hines
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 tablespoons STRONG espresso
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 ounces dark chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup walnuts
- Powdered Sugar for Dusting
In a large bowl combine the brownie mix, flour, canola oil, espresso, eggs and salt.
Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts gently
Drop by teaspoons onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes - do not overbake!
Immediately after you remove from the oven, use a fine mesh strainer to dust the tops with powdered sugar.
Cool on newsprint or a rack and store in a sealed bag
