 Sometimes life presents tough decisions: should you eat a cookie or a brownie? Wonder no more, make these double chocolate cookies because you will have the best of both worlds! Brownie cookies are exactly that– a combination of the chewiness of a brownie matched with the shape and serving size of a cookie.
The outer layer provides a cookie crunch while inside you’ll find your brownie flavor ready and waiting. These chocolate cookies are perfect for sharing at a potluck, baking for the school bake fair, swapping at a cookie exchange, and packing up to ship them across the miles. How high can you stack your brownie cookies?

Tough choices in life: Do you want a cookie or a brownie? Have both!

The depth of chocolate flavor in the brownie cookies comes from 12 ounces of melted chocolate that is added into the cookie dough. Chilling the dough before you shape the cookie balls is a key step not to skip. The cooled dough allows you to shape the cookie brownies easily. Since they are chilled going into the oven the brownie cookies hold their shape well while baking.

These chewy double chocolate cookies are going to disappear fast. Bake them for a picnic or a pot luck get together. They feed a crowd easily.

Besides being delicious, I think it is the chewy texture of brownie cookies that make them so addictive. :) I love the substitution of mini chips instead of nuts. I can't use nuts (allergies) and always debate on whether to substitute or just omit.

Oh I am so glad! Wish I could give you one from my kitchen right now!! I have about a dozen left (and there were three dozen just two days ago. Only two of us eat that is a lot of cookies I've eaten!)
