I came across these wonderful looking cookies the other day on picky-palate. So I thought it would be wonderful to surprise my Hubby with them, since his two favorite things are chocolate chip cookies and brownies. What could be better than to combine the two?
To start I whipped together a quick batch of brownies from a box.
While the brownies cooked, I made a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. However I didn't have chocolate chips, but I had some mini M&Ms and mini rainbow chips. I had a little helper also, my Little Man wanted to watch and help measure, with one hand the batter was made. And it looks so pretty with all the colors.
Then after the cookie dough was made and the brownies were cooked, I stuck the cookie dough in the fridge to set up a bit while the brownies cooled, maybe about an hour. When the brownies were ready to cut I used my pampered chef mini spatula to cut about 1" squares. I then took my pampered chef large cookie scoop and put a scoop on the bottom and scoop of dough on the top to sandwich the brownie.
Very gently I smashed the sides together so the brownie wasn't showing. These babies are huge, I barely got 6 of them on a large cookie sheet. I lined the cookie sheet with parchment paper, which made them very easy to remove for cooling.
After baking them at 350* for about 18 mins, I let them cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes and then transferred to a cooling rack. Aren't they just beautiful.
My Hubby loved them and like the surprise in the middle.
I hope you enjoy them if you make some for your family. They were a big hit here. Only thing though, one batch doesn't make a lot of cookies, only about 10. But you'll have half a pan of brownies left over.
