This past long weekend (well long weekend for most, unlike all other universities, mine did not give us monday off), my sister came home and brought her friend to stay with us.  This afternoon her friend introduced me to a wonderful creation…


What are mookies you ask?  They’re simply cookies baked inside a paper-lined muffin pan, the cookies bake up poofy and shortly before they’re done you stick a chocolate bar piece atop each mookie then bake for a tiny bit longer to melt the chocolate.  I used the Chocolate Chip Cookies from Vegan with a Vengeance which is a recipe I’ve used many times before and I’m not sure why but they taste even better in Mookie form!  I think it’s the chewy texture you get.  For the chocolate bar, I used a chopped up Peanut Chew.  Oh, and take off the liners before you serve so you can get the classy-looking ridges.

I just think these are the cutest things ever and my brain is swarming with variations!

    Definitely give them a try, Bittersweet! The texture is amazing, and people (including myself) are so impressed with them, my family (and again, myself) couldn’t stop oohing and ahhing.

    MOOKIES?! First of all, they look great & 2nd, I HAVE to make them because my husband’s nickname was Mooky, which has evolved to Mooks.

    Yay! The mookies are totally becoming cult-like!

    […] not partake in cupcake eating. But my sister’s friend (the same one who introduced me to Mookies!) convinced me to sample Samosas which were amazing and left me with a craving the following days. […]
