Brownie Crackles X 4 !!

I have had this recipe for a long time and have no idea where I got it from but my little miracle just loves them! I think he'd eat the whole batch at once if I let him! I usually make the original Brownie Crackles but today I tried out some different ideas I had and boy am I glad I did! I made FOUR kinds of these little brownie morsels. I made original, nut, mint and caramel.

Brownie Crackles are brownies, but just a prettier presentation! Beware that depending on the brownie mix you use the dough may be sticky or very dry. If too dry, add a little more water/oil. It really isn't rocket science and in the end it's a pretty fail proof recipe! If the mix is very sticky add a little more flour. I suggest trying to roll before adding more flour and then, if necessary, add the flour.

Rolling these little goodies can be a bit tricky but they will turn out. This is what I've found works best: Place the powdered sugar in a 8 inch pie plate. Be sure to use a small cookie scoop (I use a mellon baller and it works perfect).Scoop the dough and drop into powdered sugar. Drop 4-5 scoops then roll gently around in the sugar.While rolling in sugar, gently reshape into a ball. This is not the kind of dough you are going to shape by rolling it in your hands! By using that method, I have had no problems with shaping these.

1 C all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 C water

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl beat the brownie mix, flour, egg, water and oil until well blended. Place powdered sugar into a 8-9 inch pie plate. Drop by tablespoonfuls into the powdered sugar and gently roll, shaping into a ball. Place2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.   Yields: approx 4 dozen

I remember making these when I was younger! I still have the recipe but haven't made them in a long time. I like your idea of adding mint!
