Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

Want chocolate for Valentines Day? Well I give you Double Chocolate Chip Cookies baked on top of Double Chocolate Brownies…

When it comes to chocolate…I don’t mess around….I can’t be bothered with a regular dose of chocolate…I need to double, triple, or even quadruple, my chocolate up. I like to “make it rain” chocolate if you will.

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make steak dinner, served with mushrooms, onions, and a red wine sauce, but who are we kidding? Chocolate and Valentine’s Day go together like eskimos and igloo’s, thunder and lightening, and Kanye West and acting like a total ass at the Grammy’s.

So skip the heart shaped box filled with little chocolates…..get your significant other (or friend) a cute little box filled with ooey-gooey cookie brownies!


Do you loath Valentine’s Day with every fiber of your being? Nothing says, “Screw this Hallmark Holiday” by making cookie brownies instead of eating store bought chocolates purchased from Walgreens.

It’s a win-win!

Kieran and I don’t go crazy for Valentine’s Day. I certainly understand when other couples want to go all out for V-Day, buy a bunch of gifts for each other, and try to create night of romance, but that’s not my jam. Sure, Kieran and I want to be together on Valentine’s Day….but we’d rather save money, instead of buying gifts and really expensive meals.

I told Kieran way back, when we first started dating, “Screw roses….if you want to impress me, buy me something I can drink or eat….don’t waste your money on something that will die in 5 days.” Kieran bought red roses for me once, which was very sweet……however…’s those nights when he buys me red wine that I really cherish.

Kieran and I don’t even get Valentine’s Day cards for each other……with the exception of one year when Kieran got me the card below.

I laughed so hard I cried….. I loved it…..Kieran knows my sense of humor so well.

So…..neither Kieran nor I take Valentine’s Day seriously….we would rather stay home, order pizza, drink some booze, pop in a video game, and spend the evening laughing, drinking, and cappin’ bitches (in the video game…not real life…..just wanted to clarify :D)

I’m really lucky, Kieran is so loving, and complimentary on a daily basis, I just consider Valentine’s Day another day of the week. But, if you’re the kind of couple who loves celebrating Valentine’s Day, I don’t judge. I tip my hat off to you and hope you do whatever makes your heart happy….you deserve it.

Which leads me into a segue about these amazballs chocolate chip cookie brownies…..these little babies will make your heart SING!!!!! The brownies pictured here are cooked a little firmer than I like, I wanted to ensure they held up in the photo session for this post. I normally under bake these brownies on purpose so I bite into a super soft, ooey-gooey, mind blowing desert.

I mean…why make just cookies….or just brownies…..when you can combine the two and make a super crazy desert that packs a decadent chocolatey punch?

Whether you like or hate Valentine’s Day….one bite of these incredible brownies will make you fall in love with chocolate all over again.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

Shock Munch


  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of coco powder (I used dark chocolate, this optional)
  • 1 stick of butter (that's cool to the touch, but really easy to spread)
  • ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg, cold
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 box of your favorite box brownie mix (you'll also need whatever ingredients the brownie mix calls for, which is typically vegetable oil, water, and 1 egg)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl mix your flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • In a standing mixer or electric beater, cream your butter in another medium sized bowl. Start by mixing your butter on medium speed (any faster and the butter will heat up too much, leaving your cookie layer deflated), for approx 1 minute.
  • Now add your sugars (your white sugar in a steady stream on the side of the bowl, then plop your brown sugar in) and mix, on slow speed, until all of the sugar is added. Turn the speed up to medium and mix for about 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture has lightened and is slightly aerated. Turn the speed back down to low, and add the egg and the vanilla. Mix until ingredients are well combined.
  • Now slowly incorporate the flour mixture until everything just comes together. Turn off the mixer/electric beater and gently stir in your chocolate chips. Refrigerate until needed (cover beforehand if you are making the cookie dough hours in advance).
  • In another bowl, mix together your brownie mix according to the manufacturers instructions.
  • Grease an 8×8 or a 9×9 pan.
  • Pour in the brownie batter first. Smooth out the batter so it's even in your baking pan. Gently tap the pan on the counter a couple of times to release any bubbles.
  • Either using a tablespoon, regular spoon, or small ice cream scoop, spoon in dollops of cookie dough over the brownie batter. You'll probably won't use all the cookie dough (which means extra cookies for later…yay) but make sure the brownie batter is as evenly covered as it can be. Gently press the cookie dough into the brownie batter. Don't press too hard, you don't want to sink the cookie dough to far, but give the cookie dough a light press.
  • Now you're ready to bake. Put the pan into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, depending if you like your baked goods a bit under baked for maximum, delicious gooeyness, or if you like them fully cooked.
  • Pull the cookie brownies out of the oven and let stand 15 minutes before slicing up and serving.
  • Enjoy!!!!


Look in on the brownies after 10 minutes of cooking…..if the cookie topping is browning too fast, and the brownies are not done, simply loosely cover the pan with tin foil. Don’t wrap the foil too tight, otherwise the pan will steam and the cookie topping will get soggy and become flat.
You can TOTALLY make this with homemade brownie batter. I bet it would be delicious!
Use a smaller pan like 8×8 or 9×9, that way, the thickness of the brownie batter will prevent the cookies from sinking too far into the brownie batter.
Note, if the cookies do sink, and virtually disappear in the brownie batter, don’t sweat it, your brownies will STILL taste amazeballs.
