 Ingredients List

  • For the brownie layer:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • For the cookie dough layer:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


For the brownies:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray and then place a layer of parchment paper leaving excess on the sides for easy lifting after baking. Set aside.
2. Prepare a double boiler by filling a sauce pan about halfway with water. Place a heat-safe bowl on top and bring the water to a light boil. Add the butter and the chocolate chips to the bowl and stir together until the butter and chocolate are smooth and melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.
3. Once cooled, stir in the granulated and brown sugars followed by the eggs and vanilla extract. Stir together the salt and flour in a separate bowl and then mix in with the wet ingredients until well-combined.
4. Pour the brownie layer into the prepared baking dish and bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the brownies cool for about 10 minutes and then stick in the fridge for about 30 minuts so the brownies can firm up.

For the cookie dough:

5. While the brownie layer is baking, prepare the cookie dough layer. In a large mixing bowl, beat or mix the softened butter, granulated and brown sugars, and vanilla extract together. Add the salt and flour, along with the milk and stir together (you can add more milk if needed). Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes.
6. To place the cookie dough on the cooled brownies, I recommend scooping out large chunks at a time and use your hands to press down gently and spread until the brownies are covered with the cookie dough in an even layer. Cover the brownies and let cool for at least an hour before slicing. To slice, lift the excess parchment paper to remove the brownies from the pan and use a sharp knife to slice.
