Ingredients

FOR THE BROWNIES

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 7 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch process or unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

  •  1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, heat treated (directions below and in blog post)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips 

Instructions

FOR THE BROWNIES

  1. Line and lightly butter an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper leaving enough to hang from the sides. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place chopped chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir the mixture as it melts. Remove bowl from heat and whisk the sugar in. Add the eggs, whisking after each egg.  Whisk in the cocoa and salt, then fold in the flour until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
  3. Pour the brownie batter into the pan and use a spatula or offset spatula to evenly spread out the brownies and smooth out the top. Bake 30-35 minutes until a toothpick when inserted in the center comes out clean and with only a few crumbs. Keep in mind the brownies will continue to cook slightly when out of the oven, so do not over bake them. Place pan on a wire rack and allow brownies to cool. 

FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

  1. While the brownies are cooling, make the cookie dough. Begin by heat treating the flour. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spread the flour evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake five minutes. Cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the sugar and butter on medium until creamy and combined, about two minutes. Add the vanilla followed by the milk or heavy cream. Turn the mixer on low and add gradually add the flour and salt until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. 

TO ASSEMBLE THE COOKIE DOUGH BROWNIES

  1. Once the brownies have cooled completely, spread the cookie dough using an offset spatula or spatula. Cover and chill for an hour before slicing. Enjoy!
