Mac ‘n cheese. Peanut butter and jelly. Green eggs and ham. Yes, these are all traditional, yet delicious, food combinations.
But you have not lived until you have had the ultimate dessert combination, the cookie brownie.
It’s the gooey, cake-y deliciousness of brownies combined with the classic chocolate-chip cookie.
And it’s the absolute perfect treat for your taste buds.
One of my friends from theatre club in high school made cookie brownies all the time. When she taught me how to make them, I couldn’t believe how easy it was. And easy recipes are the best recipes for amateurs.
Cookie Brownie Recipe
- 1 box of brownie mix plus required ingredients from the instructions
- 1 roll of ready-to-bake cookie dough
Heat the oven to 350 F.
Combine the brownie mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl until there are so lumps.
If the baking pan is not non-stick, spray it with some non-stick spray.
Pour the brownie batter in the baking pan.
Open your cookie dough roll. Take a medium-sized piece of the cookie dough and roll it into a ball.
Place the ball in the brownie batter in the baking pan. Push the dough to the bottom of the pan. It’s okay if it gets submerged in the brownie batter.
Continue this step until you have used all of the cookie dough. Place the cookie dough balls evenly around the baking pan in the brownie batter.
Don’t worry about the balls being the exact same size. This won’t affect the cooking process.
When you are done, bake the cookie brownie combination in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until it is thoroughly cooked.
Use a toothpick to poke the middle of the pan to check if your cookie brownies baked all the way through. Bake for an additional 4-5 minutes if the toothpick comes out dirty.
Let the cookie brownies cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into them.
That’s it! Super easy, super yummy.
I placed a few cookie brownie pieces on a plate and poured a glass of milk for my roommate to try them.
“They taste like happiness,” said Kellie Apodaca after her first bite.
