Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

When it comes to entertaining guests or simply whipping up an easy dessert at home, the age old question prevails: should you bring cookies or brownies? Well, now you don’t have to choose between the two timeless desserts — these chocolate chip cookie brownies are the best of both worlds.

The blend of chocolate chip cookie dough and perfect brownie base is an iconic dessert combination that’s great to make with your kids. But, if you don’t want to fire up the oven, there’s also plenty of frozen dessert recipes you can make instead.

Once the cookie and brownie layers are prepared, by following the directions and some helpful baking tips, assemble your creation. Pour the brownie layer into the pan, then drop spoonfuls of dough on top of the brownie mix and spread it into an even layer.

After baking the dessert for about thirty minutes you’ll have ooey-gooey and delicious bars of decadent chocolate. And if you’re still in the mood to get your bake on after the treat is done, try out more of our 50 best cookie recipes.
