Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

Domestic

When I first read this recipe, courtesy of non other than the most delicious Bakerella, I sat stunned. I was in awe of the amazingness of the overall concept, I was totally paralyzed by the urge to get up and make it right now and I was also a little concerned for my waistline. She even put a warning on the most decadent picture of this extremely sinful treat that says MAY COMPLICATE WEIGHT LOSS. Indeed, Bakerella. Indeed.

I did get up and make them right away though. They were ready for the kids after school treat and dudes – they were extremely happy kids when they walked in and smelled this seriousness. I was declared best mommy ever once they tasted them – duh.

The simplicity of this recipe makes it all the more awesome. If you can make chocolate chip cookies and you can make brownies, you’re golden. The only thing I am ever not keen on with Miss Bakerella is all the boxed stuff used in the recipe. So the original recipe calls for a Betty Crocker brownie mix and a Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix.

I however? Just. Couldn’t. Do. It.

So I made a double batch of Good Housekeeping’s cocoa brownie batter and a double batch of Good Housekeeping’s chocolate chip cookie dough.

Brownie Batter:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan.

I doubled the recipe so I’ve got a whopping 2 cups of sugar here!

Mix the flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder.

Melt the sugar in the butter and add the eggs and vanilla.

Then add the dry ingredients and mix till it’s all combined. Brownie batter done!

Start on the cookie dough now by measuring out the sugars and the butter.

Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, with the egg and vanilla.

Measure out the chocolate chips and add them in too.

Cookie dough done!

Now comes the magic!

Grease a 13″ x 9″ pan and pour the brownie batter into it. Then dollop the cookie dough over it. Just look at it! YUM!

Bake it for about 35-40 minutes at 350F!


These brownies turned out so well words cannot describe.
