Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites

At any given moment, I have a million ideas going through my head. I’m constantly writing them down, usually on scrap paper, then transferring them to my recipe planner. Right now there’s about 4 full pages of recipes to make and constantly growing each week. Sometimes it takes me months to test an idea, like these Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites. I’ve been wanting to make them since Christmas, but December is the busiest month for bakers, so they were pushed to the back burner. Fast forward a few months, and I finally made them. Just when you thought chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better, they are paired with a fudgy brownie bottom. Brownie pants for your cookies. How often do you get to say that?

Serves: 48 bites
Ingredients
Brownie Layer
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 4 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into 8 tablespoons
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
Cookie Layer
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease two mini 24-cup muffin pans.
For the brownie layer
  1. In a large saucepan, melt together the butter and chocolate. Once smooth, remove from the heat and whisk in the cocoa, sugar, and salt. Whisk in the vanilla and egg until fully combined then whisk in the flour just until incorporated.
  2. Fill each muffin cup half way with the brownie batter, spreading to fill the bottom of the cup (roughly 1 teaspoon each). Set aside.
For the cookie layer
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture then add the chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop the cookie dough on top of each brownie layer (roughly 1 teaspoon each). Smooth out the dough so it completely covers the top.
  4. Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden and a toothpick comes out with very few crumbs. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing the cookies to the cooling rack.

  1. Carla, I think you should totally come and move in with me, so I can have brownie bites in my freezer. I only have one bedroom, but we could get bunk beds.

    Hehehe, brownie pants.

  2. Having these in the freezer sounds amazing. I’m forever craving chocolate. They look so thick and chewy. Yum!

  3. I’m the same way with recipes – I really need to get more organized. I’m all about combining desserts and this looks great!

  4. …..you have a good brain (:P)

    seriously. awesome. I’LL NEVER HAVE TO CHOOSE AGAIN!

  5. These are such a great idea!

  6. Carla, I love your brilliant mind. These CCC-brownie bites are perfection! They look so chewy ‘n decadent. I’d definitely have to throw them immediately into the freezer – if I had these lying around, they’d go straight into my mouth and onto my hips. It’d be worth every calorie!

  7. Yes! Exactly what I have been craving! These look amazing Carla!

  8. best of both worlds!

  9. I have a similar scrap paper-to-book system – love it :) These are the best of both worlds!

  10. Brownie pants for your cookies. I’ve got to say; that’s NOT a line I thought I’d ever be repeating lol.

    These look totally delicious, pants and all!

  11. Let me get my clean stretchy pants from the dryer and I’ll be right over! Love you for this!

  12. Carla,
    I had a Killer Brownie Brookie the other day–and this looks like a caramel-less version.
    I love the bite-sized-ness of it.
    I really don’t love using so many dashes, sorry about that.
    Thanks!
