Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

chocolate-chip-cookie-brownies

Oh I love recipes like this. I love talking about the rich goodness of the chocolate chips against the perfect chocolatey texture of the brownie. I love the buttery flavor of the cookie dough and the bittersweet flavor of the brownie. I love how they are thick and chewy with the perfect slight crisp along the edges. I love thinking about these brownies and I love eating them even more!

So my husband loves brownies, I love cookies. One would think that I would have done this recipe A LONG TIME AGO but then again I am unpredictable at times. Now you might be saying Jessica do these really go together? I mean the texture of the two are different, the flavor of the two are different and they are literally two desserts in one. My answer to that is YES! They go together like white on rice and there is absolutely no reason for anyone ever to think that they brownie and cookie don’t marry well. Their differences combined is what makes this dessert all the more phenomenal. There really is nothing more for me to say except MAKE THEM! This is one of those desserts that will leave you feeling like you just committed a crime. The combination of a brownie and a cookie is  “one” of the best creations on this God given earth.

Note: the chocolate chip cookie layer is not that fake “edible cookie dough” you see floating around the web. While given that stuff is addicting and delicious it just doesn’t and never will compare to the real thing. This recipe calls for the good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie dough and then baked!

Before I leave you I want to LEAVE you with something very important and exciting. A friend of mine Sundi, who I have come to know through my sponsor Devo Olive Oil,  has recently opened the doors to a new ministry called Esther’s House of Redemption, a residential discipleship program offering hope to broken women, free of charge. In 2010 she graduated from a similar program after she realized that her past sexual abuse, rape, and abandonment from her father had left her with too much damage to work out on her own. It was one the hardest, most rewarding things she says she has done. The Lord has provided her freedom and she wants to share that same freedom with other women who are in similar situations. She has also written a book called “Dear Daddy, Did You Know I am a Princess”. Although I have never been subject to what Sundi has endured in her life my heart aches thinking of what women have and are going through as young girls and adults. I pray this ministry will bring change, deliverance and joy to those who are hurting. If you would like more information please visit http://ehor.org/

    I love seeing the two layers in this treat. simply delicious.
    and, thanks for sharing the information and link about the good work that Sundi is doing. We have a similar place in Nashville, Magdalene House and Thistle Farms that has offered hope and redemption for abused and sex-trafficked women.

    I made something similar in the early days of my blog. You’ve given me the nudge to try these again…I may merge our recipes 🙂

      Oh la la. Now that would be the perfect solution. Merging both of ours!!!

    Sounds like a dessert that my family needs to try soon.

    It’s the best of both worlds! That way no one ever has to chose between them.

    Cookies and brownies go together like cake and frosting. What a great idea and a great way to get two of my favorite desserts in one bite. I love brownies, cookies and cake. I just love anything cakey I guess you could say. Your boys must have been gaga over these! I’m also sure they were gone in a flash. Sweets and food seem to be disappearing way faster than ever in my house lately. Zoe is in that teen faze where she can eat tons and Eli is on a growth spurt as well. Two-nighter meals are now one-nighter meals, and my grocery bill is skyrocketing. 😉 Have a great trip girl! xoxo, Jackie

    Unfortunately this sounds like a very dangerous recipe to have. One that you would want to make over and over…very yummy.

      Sorry about the double comment…I didn’t think this comment went through. Using wifi in our travels has been challenging.

    Yummy recipe Jessica! Love the idea of mixing two desserts into one, and these would be dangerous in our house.
    I could eat these for lunch and dinner. Thanks for mentioning Sundi.

    Can anything be better than brownies with visible chocolate chips baked inside? I don’t think so. )

    I just love this time of the year. Everyone is so eager to share all their not so heart healthy recipes so we can have the opportunity to indulge big time during the holiday season. These are the perfect treat that my family and neighborhood kids will adore and devour. Great recipe. I’d love to have a bite right now!

    What a terrific idea…a layer of chocolate chip cookies underneath brownies sounds terrific.

    What a great combination! My family would go nuts for these brownies/cookie. Nice!

    The greatest gift a woman can give another woman besides what is obvious…is empowerment. Cheers to your friend.

    Do you use a 9×13 pan or bigger?

    15 . Nov . 2013
    • Kitchen Belleicious

      Caroline I 9×13 pan is the perfect size bc they are thick but not too much where you could tend to overcook to get the center done. Use a 9×13:)
