Chocolate chip cookie brownie sandwiches

Why have a brownie or a cookie when you can have both?

I was looking to whip up something for work tomorrow, as Rob, Gracie and I watch Islanders-Bruins game 2 and Maple Leafs-Canadiens game 7. So I settled on this treat. Quite simply put, are a chocolate chip cookie “sandwich” with a filling of a brownie. I have seen different versions of this, using reese’s peanut butter cups, mallo cups and brownies as the filling. I went with brownies this time. Although I am partial to puffy cookies probably a flatter cookie wouls be a better option next time. You can use any cookie and brownie recipe you want. I actually put a ganache on the brownies, thinking it might help the cookies stay on the brownie, but I think I just made it messier!

Couple of notes -remember to scoop your flour from you container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes to get the right temp. And make the cookie dough as your brownies bake bc they both are baked at 350.

  • Brownies ingredients
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yolk
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (opt)

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, yolk and chocolate extract. Mix in baking cocoa, salt and flour. Add chips. Spread into pan evenly (mixture is thick). Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center cones out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely. Cut into 2 inch squares. Set aside.

This is how I staggger my cookies

Fold in dry ingredients then watwr. If you feel dough is too dry, add another tsp or so of water. Fold in chips. Scoop out 1 1/2 tbs of dough. Slightly flatten. Staggee on prepared sheets. Bake 8 to 9 minutes (light golden patches on top) cool 20 minutes. Now let’s assemble

Place one cookie flatside up
Top with a brownie
Top with a second cookie flatside down and gently press down.
They look like little hamburgers. 🙂
