Instructions
  1. For the brownie batter
  2. Prepare an 8 x 8 square baking pan lined with parchment paper (allow the paper to hang over the edge so you can lift the brookies out easily after baking them. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Melt the butter on the stove or in the microwave. Add the sugar and continue heating and stirring until smooth and shiny. Allow to cool five full minutes so you don't end up cooking the eggs when you add them.
  4. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Mix together the cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and flour and add to the butter mixture, mixing until nice and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Set Aside.
  5. Prepare the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Batter
  6. Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove. Add the sugars and continue heating and stirring until smooth and glossy. Allow to cool five minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir until smooth. Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Spoon brownie batter in first, then using a heaping tablespoon, dot with cookie dough batter. Bake at 350ºF for about 34 - 38 minutes or until tested with toothpick (it doesn't have to be totally clean, just not super wet). Add additional chocolate chips by pressing them into the hot brookies if desired. Cut into small or large squares when brookies are completely cooled. NOTE: You can 100% double this recipe and make it in a 9 x 13 pan.
