Insanely delicious, these fun cookie brownie bars are easy to make using a store-bought brownie mix. Fun dollops of home-made chocolate chip cookie dough added throughout, for a chocolate chip cookie experience in a brownie. Your friends and family will never know they aren’t completely from scratch! 😉
Happy Friday everyone! Are you ready to kick off the weekend? What better way to celebrate than with a ooey, gooey, yummy cookie bar brownie recipe. After a busy, but productive, work week, I like to reward myself (yes, I’ve been good all week) with something wonderfully sweet and decadent. You know what I’m talking about …CHOCOLATE!
These Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies are perfect to satisfy that aching sweet tooth craving. I am talking the best of both worlds here, with a chocolate brownie and America’s favorite cookie, the chocolate chip! Trust me on this one, if you have never tried the combination …then today is the day to start.
Two of your favorite desserts, rolled into one, which is always a win-win situation for Mom, as it cuts your preparation time down to one recipe instead of two. You are not using two pans and several mixing bowls for brownies and cookies, no! As a mom, with limited time, I am always looking for ways to manage my busy life, no matter if it is in the kitchen or wherever it may be. Ladies and gentlemen, here you go!
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does, and also I can’t forget the lovely group of people over at Fiesta Friday. Who? What? You say. If you haven’t visited Angie, our wonderful host, and her blog, please go check it out and join us for Fiesta Friday link-up party. It’s loads of fun! 🙂
Until next time …
Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
- 1 stick salted butter (1/2 cup, very soft)
- ¾ cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 box brownie mix
- With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars in a small mixing bowl. Add vanilla and egg; cream again until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir gently until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare brownie batter as directed. Pour batter into a glass 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. Scatter pieces of cookie dough over the top of the brownie batter. Press gently on the dough so that it sinks down into the batter, just a little.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cookie is golden and the edges are set and pulling away from the sides of the pan (usually 35 for gooey, 40 or more for fully baked) Cover with foil if you need to keep the cookies from getting too brown on top during last 10 minutes or so of baking. Allow to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes and cut into pieces for serving.
