Remember when I made these Baileys Brownies, and tried to make them in the shape of footballs??
Well, I had all of the “scraps” from around the football shapes. Yes, I definitely ate a far share of those pieces, but there was A LOT left. So, I thought, let’s make something with them…
And here it is! I chopped ’em up and mixed them into oatmeal cookies! Threw in some Valentine’s Day M&Ms, and came out with these!
I used a medium-size cookie scoop (my small one broke!), so the cookies are kind of in between the small-ish sized cookies I usually make, and bakery size. They’re, we’ll, medium size.
If you like soft, chewy cookies, as I do, then you will like these! Also, the chocolate brownie melted into the batter a little bit and made the cookies extra chocolaty.
You can certainly use regular brownies too! I actually froze the brownies and then chopped them up, since my brownies were SUPER fudgy. 🙂
Recipe: Oatmeal M&M Cookies with Baileys Brownie Chunks!
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
brownie chunks (about 2 cups)
1 bag (about 12 oz) M&Ms (I used Valentine’s Day Dark Chocolate M&Ms!)
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2) Whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
3) Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl until fluffy. Add in the eggs & vanilla and beat until combined. Scrap down the sides of the bowl with a spatula if you need to.
4) Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Once combined, add the oatmeal, brownies, and M&Ms. Switch to stirring with a wooden spoon if the batter is too thick.
5) Scoop the cookie dough with a cookie scoop (or with tablespoons) onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Cool for a 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove them to a cooling rack.
As always, make sure to try one warm!!!
