Brownie Mounds

I  kind of screwed up this recipe...but amazingly it turned out great anyway! In fact, AWESOME!

I accidentally used 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 c. corn syrup, instead of 1/3c. as the recipe stated. I had pulled out the 1/2 measuring cup from the drawer instead of the 1/3 cup! Oh well.

I really didn't know if the cookies would spread while baking, or how the consistency would be, but they were rich, chewy, moist and tasted JUST like a brownie!

(They were pretty addictive, too.)

Next time I make them ,I think I will stick with the 1/2 c. instead of the 1/3..... as we really like them the way they turned out.

This is one time I'm glad I screwed up!

Add to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the walnuts. Drop by tablespoons onto greased baking sheets and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until edges are firm. Cool. Makes 3 dozen.
