Due to severe lack of dessert in the house, my daughter decided to bake these chocolate pecan brownie cookies. In short, they are amazing. Chocolatey, salty, crunchy,and buttery (as Mr. Rockies puts it), these cookies will thwart even the most determined dieter. It would be hard to resist this kind of chocolatey goodness. However, despite their angelic perfection, these treats are quite simple to make! For my teen daughter, it took about 30 minutes of preparation time, with the subsequently additional hour of eating them. You will not regret making these chocolate pecan brownie cookies, so go ahead- give in to the chocolate! (WARNING – Bake at your own risk, you’ll probably eat them all.)

OMG, I have to make these. The only thing I am missing is the pecans. Will make these yummies for sure.

Susan, any other nut would do, too. I think I would go with hazelnuts next time.

Do you use the butter in step 4 or step 5? The directions say to use butter in both steps… half and half?

Thanks- we can’t wait to try these!
