These brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies are the cookies you’ve been dreaming of. Crisp on the outside with chewy, chocolaty gooey brownie center. It doesn’t get better than this!
For a few months, I’ve been considering a new project that involves lots and lots of cookies. I had a huge list of cookies I’ve been saving for this project, and these brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies were on that list. It’s been really hard to keep these cookies to myself and I finally caved when a few people have requested a recipe for them from me. I live to serve, so here they are in all their brownie chocolate chip cookie glory.
I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and an improved version of my favorite brownie recipe. Don’t worry, I am not going to make you click around the site for the recipes. No, I would never make you do all that.
It would be wrong for me to not give you a fair warning. These cookies are probably the best cookies on this site. And let’s not forget that I once made s’mores stuffed cookies. The cookies are buttery and wonderfully crispy on the edges with an irresistibly gooey and chewy center filled with a decadent brownie. Finish off with an ice cold glass of milk and enter a moment of pure bliss.
I am drooling just thinking about it. The trick is to do the overnight chilling of both the cookie dough and the brownie batter. You absolutely don’t have to chill either for that long, but the brownie batter does need to chill for at least half an hour. Also, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not chilling the cookie dough overnight. It’s what helps give the cookies a nice depth of flavor and give it the best texture. If you don’t want to chill overnight, just a quick chill with the brownie batter will work just fine.
The chilling you do after you’ve rolled out the cookie dough, however, is mandatory. This keeps the brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies from spreading too much and allowing the brownie goodness from seeping out the bottom. The brownie portion coming out isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it does make handling the cookies much more difficult because it tends to stay soft and the cookies will break apart when you try and pick them up.
You will end up with a little bit of extra brownie batter. I roll mine up into little balls and make little brownie puffs by baking them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 8 mins.
