Chocolate Milk Dud Cookies with Sea Salt

Where do I begin...oh baking I really don't like you much.  I am really good at making pie, so I like that kind of baking.  I'm about to start making my own bread every week so that will be baking.... but if we are talking about baking in general?! um NO THANKS! Though I did enjoy hanging out with my dear friend Nyssa and the "wolf pack" while making these ugly cookies and yes they taste very yummy they just don't look pretty.

 Adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod
Makes 2 dozen

The Ingredients
1 1/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
5 tablespoons butter
7 tablespoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box Milk Duds, chopped into halves

The Process
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease cookie sheet.

2.  In large mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, and sea salt  mix well and set aside.

3.  In medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat.  Remove from heat when melted and add cocoa powder and both sugars.

4.  Next add yogurt and vanilla.  When well mixed add this mixture to the large bowl of dry ingredients.

5.  While mixing fold Milk Duds into the dough as well.

6.  Taking large spoonfuls of dough and put on greased pan.  Bake for about 15 minutes.  When done take out of oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

These cookies are very gooey and rich, much like awesome brownies.  They would also be very good mashed up with vanilla ice cream!!!
