A TWD failure!

I was very excited about this weeks recipe. Very excited. Chipster Topped Brownies - Chocolate Chip Cookie topped Brownies! I am thinking now (in hindsight, which is always 20/20) that I should have just followed the recipe as written and not try to "fun it up!" I thought that making them in a muffin tin and making individual portions for Jason to take to work would be a great way to make these! But alas....there were no great treats to be taken to work. I made one failing tin full, and then scrapped the chocolate chip topper and made mini brownies for the guys.

I was happy to see them baking up fine, they rose nicely and the cookie top browned nicely too, and then failure ensued...as soon as they started to cool they caved in like a fallen souffle! Ugly is a hard word to use when describing baked goods....but these are ugly!

I give you my failed attempt at Chipster Topped Brownies...


There are many TWD bakers out there who followed the recipe and did not have this kind of failure...be sure to check them out. You can find the list of them
here.
I would probably make these again as the concept is great, but next time I will follow the recipe as it is written!!
Note: even though these look ugly - they taste great!
Take Care,

oh no! At least they tasted good though. I saw others who made muffins too. Mine sank in the middle too as it cooled and the edged stayed huge.

My edges puffed up a lot too, but it wasn't as dramatic in an 8" square pan. I just pushed them down to make the top layer more even (easier to do when they were still warm). Glad they tasted good!

I think it's always fun to fun it up.. don't stop! They may have sunk, but the most important part is they were still yummy.

as long as they still taste good, it's not a failure!

GMTA! I used cupcake liners instead of muffin tin and didn't bother trying to spread the cookie dough. Mine sank too so I'm thinking maybe I need to bake it a little longer? PS. Don't ever stop "fun-ing it up!"

Oh sad! As long as they tasted good? Still don't know why mine didn't puff *at all* while everyone else's puffed, caved, or cratered. Weird, huh?

But it is the taste that counts.....

Mine sank a little and were sooo underdone....
