How do you transform a run-of-the-mill chocolate chip cookie into something that your friends will rave about for days? Shh, come closer. It's a secret.
You make them ginormous and give it a surprise chewy chocolatey brownie center (say that 10 times fast)!
Sounds like it should be complicated, right? Nuh uh. It isn't - just a little time intensive. Stick with me, my little chickadee, and I'll tell you how it's done.
- 1 box of your favorite chocolate brownie mix: prepared per box instructions with the extra egg for cake-like brownies and just under baked -- the brownie should be a little sticky.
- Your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe: prepared but NOT baked
- Make cookie dough and put in fridge -- chilled dough works best
- Make brownies and let cool
- Preheat oven 350 degrees
- Mash up the pan of brownies
- Measure 1/3 cup cookie dough, ball it, cut in half and flatten each half into a disk.
- Measure 3 TBS sticky brownie crumbles and place on one cookie dough disk
- Take the other cookie dough disk and place it on top -- making a sandwich
- Seal the edges, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper with an inch between each cookie.
- Bake at 350 for 18 minutes or until cookie is golden brown.
- Cool on wire rack (or not) and EAT!
So super delicious and worth all the time the preparation takes. I swear it.
