Brownie Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love these Brownie Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies! They’re so chewy, chocolatey and delicious, you’ll want to make them all the time!

Brownie Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This was a random concoction last week when I saw a lonely bowl of leftover brownie batter in the fridge. I felt so bad for it, lol!

I quickly took it out of the fridge and decided I am adding it to cookie dough asap. I am so glad I did, these cookies are to die for. They are soft and perfect, and these cookies were the perfect treat to concoct!

Now, I will say, I used the Trader Joes brownie mix and it was chilled. I think the batter definitely needs to be chilled before adding it to the dough. I also liked how my second batch of cookies turned out when I chilled the dough for a couple hours. The photos you see here are the dough not chilled and they were fabulous, but if I had to choose, I would choose the batch with the dough chilled. Your choice 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I used 1 cup of prepared brownie batter and a good 2 cups of chocolate chips 🙂  Semi-sweet.

Cream your butter, sugars then add your eggs.

Don’t forget the vanilla.

Now, it’s time for that 1 cup of brownie batter.

Add your dry ingredients.

….and the chocolate chips.

This cookie dough was completely irresistible.

Time to bake! 350 degrees F. for 13-15 minutes.

    What a great idea for left over brownie batter! The chocolatier the better!

  8. Lauren @ hey, who cut the cheese?

    I don’t know what I want more… the cookies or the dough! These look so so good. Can’t wait to try them. Thank you for sharing!

    I think I say this all the time, but I really must make a gluten-free version is this!

  10. Carolyn Fraser

    I was wondering what to do with the leftover brownie batter I had from making the brownie-oreo cakes! This looks great, I think I will try it this week. Thank you for being so clever.

  11. d.liff @ yelleBELLYboo

    So creative! Although I have to admit, we rarely have any brownie batter left over!!

    I’m with Patti – why do you have extra brownie batter just hanging out in the fridge??? I would have just put it in a small pan and baked it off. Then again, I’d not have any left for something so yummy as brownie batter choc chip cookies. Do you think it would work with homemade brownie batter, too?? Joy of Cooking has THE BEST brownie recipe ever. Brownies Cockaigne (pardon me if I misspelled). I wanted to make cookies topped with brownies for my son’s birthday, but he just wanted two layers of choc chip bar cookies with fudge in the middle. Still yummy, but I may try my idea (inspired by your concoctions). I’ll let you know.
    Thanks for testing out all these different ways of mixing up baked goods. 🙂

    The question that is screaming at me is this. Why did you have a cup of brownie batter in your refrigerator? I just can’t figure it out, but because it inspired these, it doesn’t really matter what the reason was!

  14. Stephanie

    Honestly, how do you know the way into my heart every single time you post? I love your brownie, chocolate, peanut butter, [ok EVERYTHING] creations!!

  15. Deborah

    I have made cookies from brownie batter, but I’ve never put brownie batter IN my cookies! What a great idea!!

  16. Erin

    Ooo I don’t normally crave an all chocolate cookie, but I feel like it’s different being brownie batter!

  17. Stacy

    I am making these right now to take to my daughter’s volleyball game tonight! They look like the perfect way for the girls to enjoy their winning matches! (fingers crossed for that one!)

  18. Holly @ The Runny Egg

    Ok the picture of the brownie batter going into the bowl is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time 🙂 These look incredible!

  19. Jessi @ Quirky Cookery

    The next best thing to making a batch of brownies and then stuffing them inside a batch of cookies is just mixing them all together and baking at once, haha. Delicious.

  20. Kathryn

    I love they way your mind works! Another batch of perfect cookies that I want to eat all off!

  21. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    Jenny they look soooo good!

    I had that brownie batter in a bag from TJ’s in my HAND TODAY! I put it back on the shelf (but I remember what you made last week with it) and I said to myself, I really don’t need this b/c I just don’t even need to make any more desserts..and now…I see you made these cookies!

    Looks like I need to go back to TJ’s 🙂

    The way the light is coming in and streaming & side-lighting your photos…just beautiful!
