I love brownies and I love chocolate chip cookies. So when I saw Picky Palate’s recipe for stuffing a brownie inside a chocolate chip cookie, I couldn’t wait to try them. I could already imagine how good they would taste…a chocolatey fudgy brownie stuffed inside a cookie. Mmmm..
I previously made thin mints stuffed chocolate chip cookies which was inspired by Picky Palate’s oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. For those cookies, I used a different chocolate chip cookie recipe. This time I decided to try out Picky Palate’s exact recipe.
The cookies came out huge…I couldn’t believe how big they were. Now normally I’m not one to worry about calories or desserts being too unhealthy, but one look at these gigantic cookies, and I had to cut mine in half and only allowed myself to eat half in one sitting.
The outside cookie was nice and crispy, the inside was cakey and worked perfectly with the fudgy brownie. My cookies didn’t really flatten like Picky Palate’s, but they still were good. When I gave these cookies to my brother and his girlfriend, their eyes lit up. Brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies is really an ingenious idea.
I definitely will make these again, though next time I think I’m going to use less brownie so I can make these cookies a little smaller. You can view Picky Palate’s recipe here.
Brownie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 box brownie mix
- 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Make the brownies following the package instructions and let them cool completely. Slice the cooled brownies into 1/2-inch squares.
- In large bowl, beat the butter and both sugars until they are light in color and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Using a large cookie scoop, scoop some cookie dough in your hand. Place a brownie square in the center and top it with another scoop of cookie dough. Form the cookie dough around the brownie so that it is completely sealed inside. Place the cookie ball on the baking sheet and repeat this process with the rest of the dough and brownies.
- Bake the cookies, six at a time on a baking sheet, for 18 to 22 minutes or until the edges turn golden. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet before transferring to a baking rack.
