If Monday were a food, he’d totally be tofu. Bland, boring, and not much to look forward to on his own. You have to do things with him, like inviting over soy sauce or going swimming with teriyaki.

Similarly, Monday calls for something special. Whether it be going to a movie, eating your favorite dinner, or going to work out, it’s always nice to have something to look forward to in the beginning of the week. And that, my friends, is why I am sharing these Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies with you today.

Because every Monday deserves these brownies. In fact, any day you eat these brownies is a pretty good day.

Like seriously, how can you resist a layer of cookie dough topped with caramel candies?

-Oh wait, there’s more-

AND THEN TOPPED WITH BROWNIE BATTER. It’s ridiculous and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My yoga instructor told me today that whenever I bring her baked goods, she has to share them with other people, because otherwise she inhales them with no control. That is exactly how I feel about these brownies, people. I had to give almost all of them away, because I could. not. stop eating them!

But I guess that’s a good thing, because it means it’s a good recipe.

Sorry, hips. You’re welcome, tastebuds.

My suggestion is that if you make these babies (which you absolutely should!), wrap half of them up in tin foil and give them to your colleagues, or housemates, or family. Because I can’t guarantee that you will be able to stop eating them.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

Author:
Serves: 9 huge squares
Ingredients
  • 1 boxed brownies mix + necessary ingredients, mixed according to package directions (I used Ghirardelli double chocolate)
  • ¾ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 12-16 mini chocolate candies of choice! (I used Milky Ways but also suggest Rolo's)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8"x8" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a standing mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Turn mixer speed to low and incorporate dry ingredients.
  3. Remove from standing mixer and, using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough evenly into prepared baking pan. Squish mini candies to break their coating and place on top of cookie dough.
  4. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Spread batter evenly over cookie dough and candies. Bake for 55 minutes.* Allow CCC Brownies to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan. Cut into squares and enjoy!
Notes
*I chose to drop some extra chocolate chips on top of my cooked brownies as soon as they came out of the pan. Totally optional, but a nice touch!

No doubt, sorry hips, hello lips (I mean, tastebuds… I had keep the rhyme going ; ) ) If these are as good as your salted caramel brownies, which I am sure they are, then I’m in trouble. I’ll warn my neighbors…..they’ll be in trouble too – in a good way! 😉

Hi I tried making these. Followed directions to a T. Let them cool for about an hour before cutting into them and they were completely uncooked…any tips!? I used a Betty Crocker brownie mix

Hi Laura! As oven temps can vary, it seems like you needed more time in the oven. When in doubt, stick a knife into the center of the brownie. If the knife comes out clean, the brownies are done! If there is batter on the knife, it’s not done cooking 🙂

Hi..
I just found this recipe via buzzfeed and am super excited to try this recipe xD
However I live in India and unfortunately, the ghiradelli products aren’t available here. So I was wondering if the plumb good brownies on your site (https://bromabakery.com/2011/02/plumb-good-brownies.html) are a good match or whether you recommend some other recipe for the brownies.
Thanks for sharing this..it looks amazing xD

Hi Parita! You are welcome to use any boxed brownie mix you’d like! Thanks so much and happy baking!

I mixed this recipe with your Salted Caramel Brownie recipe and the result was so delicious. I was looking for an over-the-top, gooey, over indulgent treat for the weekend and this definitely checked all the boxes. Thank you!

Oh I love that, sounds so indulgent! Gotta try that one myself 🙂
