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.
