  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten with fork
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 3/4 cups boiling water
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips, divided in half

  • whipped cream, for serving
  • cacao nibs, for garnish
  • smoking wood of choice, if desired


  • 1. Preheat the Egg to 225º using indirect heat and smoking wood of choice. Smoke the water for no more than 10 minutes. Remove from the grill and use in the recipe as stated below.
