Devil's Brownie Cookies
You know how it is when ur kid is down with high fever, cough and flu.. u simply hv no time to do anything else except to be by her side all day long.. well Sonia has been sick since Monday.. shes running a high fever of 39 deg and coughing very badly.. shes fussy and always wants me to be by her side.. well right now her fever has subsided and the only thing that is bothering her big time is her flu and cough.. poor girl..
We hv not been able to do any visiting either.. not even to go and visit my grandmama who was admitted to hospital on Monday... shes there cos of the same complication again and I really hope that shes gonna get better soon.. hopefully once Sonia has fully recovered.. I am able to visit her :o(
Anyway today right after I put Sonia to bed.. I decided to try my hand on this cookie.. I had planned to bake it bef Eid but unfortunately time was not on my side.. well well well.. what do u know.. they shud call it devil's brownie cookie instead cos u simply cant stop eating em.. use good chocolate to get good result ok and I am pretty sure u will agree with me that it shud be called Devil's Brownie hehehe
