Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies


I have seen chocolate chip cookie brownies around for years, at the bakeries, on blogs and on Pinterest. This week I finally got around to making a batch and my goodness they are delicious! I mean what could be better than a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie together? 




I used a recipe from one of my favorite blogs Pinch of Yum. Lindsay's recipes are always quick, easy and so tasty. This recipe is all of the above not to mention rich and chocolaty, especially as it starts with a brownie mix. Seriously, can it get any easier?





Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
Recipe from: Pinch of Yum

Ingredients:
1 stick of room temperature butter
3/4 cup of white sugar
2 tablespoons of brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup + 2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of 60% Ghiradelli chocolate chips
1 18.9 oz box of Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix( and egg, oil, and water)

Directions:

1. Cream together butter and sugars in a small mixing bowl. Add vanilla and egg. Cream together again until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir gently until incorporated. Then ass chocolate chips and mix gently.

2. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare brownie mix as directed. Pour into 8x8 inch greased square pan. Scatter the pieces of cookie dough over the surface of the brownie batter and press into the batter a little. You will have extra batter left from the cookie dough unless you want to use it all. You can save the extra to make cookies out of.

Bake brownie/cookie mixture for 30-40 minutes, cover with foil if the cookies are getting too brown on top. If you like your cookies gooey than cook them for 30-35 minutes, if you like them more firm bale for 35-40.

Remove from oven and cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.



Don't these look fabulous? I cannot tell you how moist, chocolaty, chewy and gooey there are but I hope the photos give you a little hint. I have made these brownies three times in the last week and have given them to family and friends( not to mention eating my fair share) and everyone has loved them.

I hope that you try them! And don't forget to check out Pinch of Yum for this as well as many other wonderful recipes!
