•This cookie has gone through quite a journey. It started out as my mom’s brownie recipe that I intended to double. I didn’t however intend to almost triple the amount of flour called for (I promise I finished school in an advanced math class). I also
swore there was a whole bag in the cupboard didn’t have enough semi-sweet chips, but had a variety of other kinds. There was no turning back now, just had to see what turned out…..and they were a big success. Next problem was the name. I liked that they started out as brownies and had three different kinds of chips and wanted to come up with a quirky name that might conjure up a childhood memory. After asking my cohorts for ideas the final decision was triple chip brownie mud pie cookies (that was just too long), but the question I got back in return was “what’s a mud pie?” Was I the only one that sat in mud puddles and made cookie shaped patties out of mud as a kid?
In a sauce pan on low heat melt together the butter, salt and unsweetened chocolate squares. Set aside to cool for a minute.
In the bowl of a mixer add the granulated and brown sugars. With the mixer on low speed slowly pour in the melted chocolate. Increase speed to high for 2 min-scrape down sides of bowl with spatula.
Crack the 2 eggs into a separate bowl (to avoid shells or a bad egg from ruining your dough). Pour 1 egg at a time into the mixing bowl and beat on high speed for 30 seconds after each. Add vanilla and mix again 30 seconds.
Sprinkle in the flour, baking soda and baking powder and mix just until incorporated. Do not over mix at this point. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
Mix in the chips in with a wooden spoon. Chill in fridge for 1 hour. Using two large spoons put scoops (approx a rounded tbls) of dough onto cookie sheets. Leave them a little room to groove- they will spread a bit. Bake 350° 14-16 min rotating the pans halfway through.
Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 min (sprinkle with a little sea salt if desired) then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container♥Enjoy
PS- I was told that these were too chocolatey…is there such a thing?
