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!
