Hump Day Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Posted May 25 2011 10:54am

Did I get your attention?

I used hump, chocolate, brownie, and cookie all in the same sentence. Try to top that.

Can I tell you a secret?

I thought “hump day” referred to some crazy sex holiday people took. Or a specific day of the year that everyone shacked up. Kind of like some kinky Eyes Wide Shut for everyday people. I won’t even embarrass myself by telling you how old I was when I learned it just refers to Wednesday because it marks the “hump” of the week.

Enough about me, back to the cookies.

I’m going to go as far as to say these cookies will help you celebrate Hump Day in all it’s glory. Yes, these cookies will help you get laid.

That’s right I went there. But before you think I’m totally using sex to pull you in (ok maybe there is truth to using sex as advertising), hear me out.

1. These bad boys are low in fat. Yes chocolate, gooey, moist cookies can be guilt-free. And there is no applesauce, fat-free butter or some other concocted nonsense thrown in.

2. This dessert won’t feel like a rock in your stomach. And listen, who wants to get their sexy time on when they feel like they’re as bloated as a 5 month pregnant woman? I mean besides women who are 5 months preggers. Yea sorry not the look I’m going for.

3. Your man or lady friend will love you. I brought a bunch of these to a cook-out and all of them were devoured in about 5 minutes which gave me the sign they were a hit. I should also mention this was after we all ate chicken wings, potato salad, and cheese dip. Yes this “diet” cookie held up to fatty, greasy BBQ food. Take that 100 calorie packs!

Now I’ve never been good at math but let’s add this up:

Low fat + You don’t Feel Bloated + Happy Potential Sex Partner = BOOM goes the Dynamite!*

(*totally stole this from Tosh.O last night)

{recipe from Better Homes & Gardens Dieter’s Cookbook }

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Stir together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter and mix with sugar, cocoa powder, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture.
  3. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour (dough should be stiff but not firm)
  4. Preheat oven to 350
  5. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Drop tablespoons of chilled dough onto sheet.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are firm. Let cool for 1 minute. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I should add a step 7 – Put on some old school LL Cool J, dim the lights, and (let’s say it together this time)…

BOOM goes the dynamite!

You can thank me by naming your first child Morningstar, I’ll collect the royalties later.
