Each year I make a Christmas baking plan that's pretty ambitious. This year, I'd got in my head that I was going to make some brownies and decorate them like trees, but then I wound up doing some tree shaped shortbread instead.
Since I already had the brownie mix, I went searching for ideas of how to use it and my friend Sue suggested these Brownie Crackles from Taste of Home. I had all the ingredients on hand except the semi sweet chips, so I used dark chocolate chips instead.
I think I like these even better than the traditional chocolate crinkles, the flavor and the texture are amazing. They were a big hit at our gathering on Christmas Eve, so they'll definitely be on the master list for next year! Thank you to Ellen G. for sharing her recipe, and to Sue for putting it on my radar!
- 1 package fudge brownie mix (13x9-inch pan size)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)
- Confectioners' sugar
How to cook Brownie Crackles
- Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat brownie mix, flour, egg, water and oil until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Let stand 30 minutes.
- Place confectioners' sugar in a shallow dish. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls into sugar; gently roll to coat. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
