DAY 11: Cookies ‘n’ Crème Brownie Bites
A simple cookie recipe that starts with a brownie mix and ends with a kiss.
I added white chocolate chips to the dough, but next time I think I will leave them out. You can use Hershey’s Kisses or Dove Chocolates to top the cookies. When I used the Dove chocolates, I let them melt on the hot cookies and then swirled them with a toothpick into a rounded shape.
Cookies ‘n’ Crème Brownie Bites
1 brownie mix (18-20 oz package)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
1 pkg. Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème Kisses or Dove Cookies & Crème Chocolates
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, combine brownie mix, cream cheese, butter and egg. Beat with a mixer until smooth. If desired, stir in white chocolate chips.
Use a very small cookie scoop (about 2 tsp) or teaspoon to drop balls of dough onto baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake.
Cool cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheet and then press a Hershey’s Kiss or Dove chocolate into the center of each cookie. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
If using the Dove chocolates, let the chocolate melt on the warm cookies and then swirl with a toothpick.
Makes 48 small cookies.
