Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

There is still time to get in on the action at yesterday's Tutorial Linky Party. Prizes, people! So head on over and teach me stuff, you just might come out of it with your very own custom Hope Studios frame.


So, you know sometimes when you see an idea that is so deceptively simple yet brilliant and you feel like kicking yourself and saying "DUH! Why didn't I think of that?!?" Well, The Nester turned me on to Tidy Mom who did that and shot my diet all to hell in one fell swoop! Her recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies is a marriage made in heaven, it makes as much sense as peanut butter and jelly and yet it never occurred to me.

This is so simple I don't even have to type out a recipe. Tidy Mom uses a box of brownie mix and a bag of chocolate chip cookie mix, easy peasy. I did use the brownie mix, but then made a 1/2 batch of chocolate chip cookie batter from scratch.

I poured the brownie batter into a buttered 9x9 inch pan and dotted the top with the chocolate chip cookie batter...at 10 o'clock at night hence the terrible lighting.

Then I baked at 350 for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick came out clean.

After the pan cooled, I mixed up some simple Ganache. Here is Tidy Mom's recipe:

Chocolate Ganache

12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
6 Tbsp butter

* In a small saucepan, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage.
* Pour over the chocolate morsels.
* Stir until smooth.

Pour ganache on top and spread it out evenly. You will want to let the ganache set up before cutting.

Cut and bring to your girlfriend's new home with a thermos of coffee. Sit on the floor since there is no furniture (Picnic, woot!) and plan all the fantastic projects this new home will bring your way! (Soul Sisters activiate! This new house is going to be so fun for all of us, we can't wait!)



  1. Those brownies were awesome! The "Baked" authors will be on Martha this Saturday debuting their "Brookie" - you guessed it - a brownie/choc. chip cookie combination!

  2. Wow, those look amazing! I have no will power when it comes to chocolate chip cookies and brownies so this could be scary! If you want an EASY but delicious artisan bread recipe check out my lastest post!

  3. I've made something similar to this! When I'm REALLY lazy I just use refrigerated Pillsbury cookie dough, press that into the bottom of the pan and then pour on the brownie batter and bake away...SO YUMMY! But now I'm going to have to try it with the ganache topping, thanks! :o)

  4. Oh..you young Mom's give me a chuckle...I have been doing this for years!! I am the queen of mixing the boxed mixes and hate to be ordered how to make something. Hence..I hardly ever pay attention to given box instructions ;-) Seems like they all get an egg, water and maybe butter...how different can they all be? If we eat raw cookie dough and wet brownie batter, can we really ever ruin it???

  5. I've been patiently waiting for this!!! :) .....and I agree... my head has been swimming with ideas for marzipan's new digs!!!

  6. Those look to die for. I am so making these. Who doesn't have a brownie mix and chocolate chips? I'm afraid I might eat the whole pan though! Oh well, at least I will enjoy every minute of it!

  7. Oh MAN!!! You have no idea how baaaaaddddd I want one of those right now!!! (Stay strong...must stay strong)

  8. This looks DELICIOUS! Thank you so much for posting the recipe! And thank you for joining my blog! :) You are great! Have a fabulous day!

  9. I've had these before (don't remember where) and they are AMAZING! Now I just want to sit on the couch with a pan of those and a giant fork. Good job :-P

  10. Yes! I made these and they were CRAZY-GOOD!

  11. oh my gosh......that recipe looks amazing!!!!!!!

  13. SO glad you posted this, because I remembered seeing it somewhere, but when I went to get it I COULD NOT find it! Thank you Thank you! Oh, and that house looks BEAUTIFUL!

  14. Jennifer, I read your sweet comment about my shower and the kitties and then did an oops and rejected it! Oh golly, I need to slow down. Just wanted to let you know I really appreciated it and please do come back!

    I have three grown sons, so I zeroed right in on your having three boys. Such a blessing and a challenge. LOL

    If only I could reach into my screen and have one of those brownies now. My mouth is watering!

  15. WOW. I think I have died and gone to heaven--that looks amazing!!

  16. We are having a girlfriend and kids get together next Monday, and I think i will just show up with a big pan of that! :D

  17. So I was going through you're old posts, naturally. And, came across this one..

    Awesome, just what my PMSy chocolate craving butt needs 3 weeks before Disney.
