Can't make up your mind whether to bake Brownies or Chocolate Chip Cookies? Why worry, when you can just bake a batch of these stunning eggless Crownies! Crownies are the perfect combination of a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie. Crownie is an amazing accompaniment with the ever so favorite cold coffee. From kids to adults, brownies are everyone’s favorite. The dark chocolate with the crunchy nuts make it to a luscious evening snack. Crownies have a cookie kind of a texture on top and a gooey, soft texture inside. A very chocolaty batter is made out some dark chocolates and nuts and laid out in the mould. The batter is then topped with the Chocolate Chip Cookie dough which gives it a very tempting appearance. Once fully baked the aroma of the Crownies is just too good. So go and indulge into the super yummy Crownies with your favorite coffee or tea.

  7. Pop the Crownies into a preheated oven and bake at 165 degrees Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top of the cookies are crisp and golden brown, but a toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
