Chocolate Chip Brownie Chunk Cookies

The brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies were a huge hit with my family. It’s definitely something I’m going to make over and over again. They also didn’t last long.

Anyhow, I was thinking I might try a version with brownie chunks rather stuffing a brownie inside. That way the cookies would be normal-sized and would still have brownies. I also changed up the chocolate chip cookie recipe, opting for a chewier recipe so that the cookies would maintain the chewy texture even without a fudgy brownie sandwiched in the middle.

They came out good….but not as great as the brownie stuffed cookies. The little chunks of brownies weren’t as satisfying as biting into a whole fudgy brownie sandwiched into a cookie.

I think I would have liked these a lot better if hadn’t had the brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies first.

Chocolate chip cookies studded with brownie chunks – two favorite treats in one!

Ingredients

  • One box of your favorite brownie mix
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Make brownies according to box directions. After brownies have cooled, cut into small cubes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  • In a separate bowl cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar using an electric mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined.
  • Add in the flour mixture on low speed until combined. Using a large spoon, mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop a large tablespoon of dough and push a few chunks of brownies into the dough (I put about four on the surface and one inside) and drop onto baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used up.
  • Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from tray and let them cool on wire racks.

  1. I think the good thing about these chunks is that you have brownie in every bite rather in just the middle

    • The brownies seem to be less fudgy and intense when they are split into smaller chunks though. I prefer the brownie in the middle but this version is sort of like a healthier version of the stuffed brownie one.
