Repeat after me: Brownies. Cookies. Brownie Cookies!! These are some of the most delicious cookies out there. I found these cookies via Pinterest. If you haven't tried out Pinterest, you should. If you value spending time away from your computer, you should not. There are too many pretty things, delicious recipes, and inspirations for design and DIYs on Pinterest to not suck a person in forever. It is addictive. You will find yourself traveling down the black hole of design blogs and recipe blogs and fashion blogs as you look for things to "pin". Before you know it, your Google Reader will have tripled in size over night. Pinterest is dangerous, but it is so much fun. As an example of the lovely, delicious, amazing things you can find there - I give you these tasty, chewy, chocolate-y brownie cookies! I've decided that they would be perfect as the cookies for ice cream sandwiches. They are also great alone. We certainly devoured them!
You can follow me on Pinterest if you so desire. Also, thanks to Pinterest and these Strawberry Lemonade Bars, blog visits have gone through the roof here at K&K, so that may explain some of my love for the site! To all the newbies visiting from Pinterest, stick around and see what else we've got cooking!
