Directions for: Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies


For the Cookie Base

1 ½ cup flour

¼ cup sugar

Pinch salt

1 stick butter (8 tablespoons, 4 ounces or 1/2 cup)

1 egg, lightly whisked

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips

For the Brownie Layer

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1 Tbsp cocoa

½ tsp salt

1 stick butter (8 tablespoons, 4 ounces or 1/2 cup)

8 oz 70% dark chocolate, chopped

2 eggs

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips


For the Cookie Base

1. Put flour, sugar, salt and butter into a medium bowl and mash the mixture until it’s crumbly. Whisk the egg with the vanilla and stir in along with the chocolate chips. Continue stirring until a dough comes together. Press it into a lightly oiled parchment-lined, 8” by 8” baking dish.

2. For an extra crispy cookie-like base, pre-bake the cookie dough for 15 minutes, If you prefer a softer base layer don’t pre-bake. Either way will support the brownie layer.

For the Brownie Layer

1. Preheat your oven to 350°.

2. Whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa and salt together. Meanwhile melt the butter over low heat. Turn off heat and add the chocolate.

3. Stir gently with a whisk as the chocolate melts then whisk the mixture smooth. In a second bowl whisk the eggs with the vanilla. Scrape and discard the whisk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and mix well with a wooden spoon or the like.

4. Pour the batter over the baked or un-baked chocolate chip cookie base and bake for 45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the brownie.
