Brownie Chunk and Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, how about a new cookie this weekend? I had some leftover brownie sitting on my counter and I thought, why not chop them up into chunks and add them right to some chocolate chip cookie dough? Yah, it was a really good idea πŸ™‚Β  Take a peek!

We are off to San Diego this weekend to play at the beach, can not wait! I’ll be packing some of these bad boys with me πŸ™‚


Left:Β  dry ingredients, sugar, butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, chocolate chips and brownies. Yum!


Here are my left over brownies that I cut into small cubes/chunks. 2 cups was perfect.


Time to cream your butter and sugars.


Add your vanilla. I heart vanilla!


Add your dry ingredients, chocolate chips, and brownie chunks.


This dough was ridiculous….in the best way possible.




350 degrees F. 9 to 11 minutes!


Here you have my Brownie Chunk and Chocolate Chip Cookies!



Brownie Chunk and Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup chocolate chips

2 cups cubed prepared brownies

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment or silpat liner.

2. Place butter and sugars into the bowl of a stand or electric mixer, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.

3. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips and brownie chunks until just combined.

4. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 1-inch apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes 3 dozen cookies


Have a great rest of your week and weekend! Come back soon!

    Those cookies look so yummy. I don’t know how I could find leftover brownies.

    You have a Bosch in one of your pictures and are using a Kitchen Aide in another. I have a Kitchen Aide and have been wanting a Bosch, but now you have me worried that I’d still be using the Kitchen Aide instead. Should I save my money and stick to the Kitchen Aide?
