Imma Sugar Addict

You've probably noticed by now but I love eating treats. My friends once bet me in high school that I couldn't last a day without sugar. Being defiant as I am, I boldly stated I could and would. So I quit eating my precious treats for a day. I made it, but it was awful. By that evening, I was on the couch with the chills and a major migraine. My mom brought me a glass of water and announced in wonderment, "Kelsey, I think you are experiencing sugar withdrawals." And then I probably cried and ate a candy bar.

I wish that story was a lie, but it's not. It's pure truth. My name is Kelsey Keller Weller and sugar is my crack. Needless to say, I like baking. Not so much baking, but just baking so I can have a treat to eat. And when I want treats to eat, I want them stat. So some of my favorite recipes are the super basic and simple ones. These chocolate crackle cookies became a fast favorite of mine. They also became a fast favorite of my nine to eleven year old Primary kids. Two of them even asked me for the recipe. That's why I love my Primary kids. They make me feel like a baking champion, even though I am usually making recipes basic enough for they themselves to master.

What you'll need:

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine brownie mix, 1 cup of flour, 3 eggs and 1/3 cup of oil. Set powdered sugar (around 3/4 cup) aside in a separate bowl. For each cookie, take a scoop of dough and place it in the bowl of  powdered sugar. Roll gently, coating with powdered sugar. Bake 11-13 minutes. Then devour.

Also, if you don't get a brownie mix that has chocolate chips already included, you'll want to add some chocolate chips. Just believe me.

And on a totally unrelated note, I want to point out that today is the annual "Spread the Word to End the Word" awareness day. Read more about their cause here. I feel very strongly about ending the derogatory use of the R-word. I worked with mentally disabled kids for two years and they left such a positive impact on my life. People with handicaps are often some of the brightest, most capable, sweetest people. They are just like us, they just might struggle in a different way. So please don't use words that mock or bring down my friends, okay? I'll admit that the R-word was once a part of my vocabulary. I was ignorant. Once I surrounded myself with these amazing people, I quit using the word completely.

So spread the word to end the word and bake some cookies. That's my life lesson for the day.


  1. These look SO good! I'm definitely going to make these over spring break. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I don't know if I missed it, but how much oil, flour, and how many eggs? These look so good!

    1. Ah!! How embarrassing that I left that important information out. Please forgive me. I went back and added it to the post so we should be good to go now! Sorry! I feel like such a dork.
