Fish and Chocolate

Made ya look, didn't I?


No, the recipe today doesn't include fish, but it definitely includes plenty of chocolate.

First up, though, is my project I finished this past week, Fish Hat (Dead or Alive)


I turned it in to Defense Against the Dark Arts for my disguise as the wonderful FairIsleFish. It's made from an assortment of worsted weight leftovers (and I think it looks kind of cool).

Next up is my recipe for the week. I think I should probably just make this into my Bisquick recipe of the week.


Doesn't that look appetizing? Yum!


Anyway, onto the recipe!

Frosted Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies:
1 Cup Bisquick mix
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 Cup chocolate chips
1/2 Cup baking cocoa
1/2 Cup vanilla yogurt
1 egg

1/4 Cup baking cocoa
2 Tbsp shortening (again, butter is fine as well)
2 Cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with foil.

In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for cookies, and mix until well blended.
Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. I managed to get 10 cookies per sheet.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Look for them to spread a bit, but don't bake too long because the color really doesn't change. Allow to cool completely (about 30 minutes).
Mix frosting ingredients besides milk in a separate bowl. Add milk one Tbsp at a time until it's a good consistency.
Spread frosting on cooled cookies.
Eat (not all at once, though!) with a nice glass of milk.

That's all! See ya next week!
