Brownie Stuff Chocolate Chip Cookies

OMG, finding these was like a revelation. Stuffing already delicious chewy choc chip cookies with parcels of rich fudgy brownies. Who ever came up with this idea deserves a medal.

My cookie baking days will never be the same. I'm already dreaming up the billions other things I could stuff into a cookie......Snickers, Oreos, Pods, Chery Ripes, Tim tams. The list is endless.

There are a couple of warnings that come with these cookies though. 1. They are MASSIVE. I'm talking the size of side plates. 2. You will be unable to resist eating a whole one on your own and 3. You will regret doing so.

As for most of my cookies I used my normal choc chip cookie recipe which I will list again below for convenience sake.

1 brownie mix (I used Betty Crockers fudge brownies)
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
185gms butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla essence
200gms chocolate, roughly chopped (or chocolate chips)
1.  Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare the brownie mix as per instructions on the box. Cook for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out almost clean. Set aside on a wire rack to cool.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, add the brown sugar, caster sugar, self raising flour and plain flour. Stir to combine. Pour in the butter, eggs and vanilla essence. Mix well then add the chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.
3. Now for the messy part. Cut the brownies into 3cm pieces. Take a tablespoon of cookie dough and slightly flatten it. Place the brownie on top. Take another tablespoon of cookie dough and place it on top. Squish together until the brownie is covered.
Place on a large cookie tray lined with baking paper. Make sure you leave plenty of room between cookies as they will spread.
4. Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes until lightly golden and slightly crunchy around the edges.
5. Cool on a wire rack. Serve!
Enjoy :)
