I don't know if you remember the little brownies you buy in brown bags at the grocery store? I loved this sweetness when I was a kid. Like, a lot. When I thought about creating a fudge-style cookie recipe, I sure expected something very chocolatey, but I didn't think the cookies would look so much like these brownies.
Well, the taste and texture are 100% present. It's a delicious snack that's quick and easy to prepare. A good idea for lunchboxes!
