It’s a brownie.
It’s a cookie.
It’s a… brookie? Crownie?
Whatever you call it, it is deeeeeelicious; every bit as scrumptious as that Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind over the past couple of weeks.
This version uses oil instead of butter, white chocolate chips instead of grain-sweetened, and gets the added tastiness of cocoa powder for a brownie-like result.
The inside is soft, moist, and studded with melty white chocolate chips; the top is slightly crackly and crisp. In other words: pure decadence in a single-serving cup!
Can this be considered an appropriate (but infrequent) mid-afternoon snack? Because it totally was for me. Or maybe that’s just the pregnancy hormones talking.
In all seriousness, this is clearly an indulgent dessert to be enjoyed every once-in-a-while. But when you do make one of these brownie cookies for one, you’ll be in utter bliss.
That being said, if you’re wondering if there’s a way to make it even more decadent, I’m here to assure you that there most certainly is:
Top your still-warm brownie cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt!
Any dessert a la mode is fantastic, and this is no exception.
