Brownie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, I’ve done Brownie Covered Oreos, Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, Candy Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies and…….now I present to you my newest love the BROWNIE Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie! These bad boys weigh a ton, look gorgeous and taste like a million bucks. Bake up a batch of brownies ahead of time, so you don’t have to wait for them to cool. Cut them in little squares and get to stuffing 🙂

Wait until you see the size of these when that oven timer goes off. I about died. Hope you enjoy my crazy concoctions 🙂

Make a batch of brownies and whip up my chocolate chip cookie dough. It holds up beautifully for all of my stuffed cookies.

I cut my brownies into 2 1/2 to 3 inch squares. It was the perfect size.

Break out your largest cookie scoop. I need a bigger one!

You know the drill 🙂


Time to bake! 350 degrees F. for 18-22 minutes.


Buttery crisp on the outside, fudgy brownie on the inside!


Brownie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 brownie mix

2 sticks softened butter

1 Cup granulated sugar

3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

2 eggs

1 Tablespoon vanilla

3 1/2 Cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare brownie according to package directions. Let cool completely then cut into 1 1/2 inch squares.

2. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat until well combined.

3. Place flour, salt and baking soda into a bowl; mix to combine then add slowly to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.

4. Place a large cookie scoopful of dough on top of a brownie square and another large scoop on the bottom. Gently press and enclose brownie with dough adding pinches more dough to cover sides if needed. Place 6 filled cookies onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 18-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from baking sheet. Grab a tall glass of milk and dig in 🙂

Makes 12-16 VERY large cookies


So, apparently my good buddy Angie of Bakerella did a very similar recipe last year that I wasn’t aware of!! See her gorgeous version HERE 🙂

Happy Baking! Come back soon 🙂

  1. Hi there!

    I just made these and they taste awesome, but did not turn out flat! My brownies sort of rose up to the top like little “top hats” as I am calling it, so there is a big bump on top. Any idea what I’m doing wrong? I’m guessing it’s just because I didn’t smush them down after forming the balls so they perhaps weren’t flat enough to start with… but since the same thing happened with Oreo-stuffed cookies earlier this week, thought I’d ask!

    thanks so much!

  2. Jason

    made these last night and the cookies spread out leaving the brownie in the middle with little cookie on top. what happened?

  3. jalaine

    i’m entering a cookie contest on sunday. i’m thinking the brownie stuffed chocolate chip recipe. is that the best you have? thanx.

  4. Courtney and Jess

    So um, me and my friend decided to make these, having both cookiedough and brownie mix. As we were putting the cookie dough ontop of the brownies, they looked extremely huge and lumpy. They just finished baking and one turned out alright, the rest fell apart, one spilting in the middle, another has a huge square lump popping out.

    Well, it’ll make a nice sundae. C:

    Some of the best cookies I have ever made! I made these a little while back because they sounded so good. Everyone loved these! You also can do it without a scoop, I just used a soup spoon from the kitchen drawer. I want to make these again and possibly try the chocolate chip cookies with the brownie pieces swirled in so I use up the whole pan of brownies.

  6. Dana N

    Hmm, I think my baking soda might be bad, because I just made these, and they didn’t sink down like yours did. They’re still pretty much the same shape as when I put them on the pan. They still taste great, though! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  7. You sir, are a god! Thank You for saving my life. This recipe is exactly what I have been searching for. For the longest time a piece of me has been missing; I have not been whole…not until today. Since reading this article I have found out what was missing from my life, love. Thank you for giving me this gift.

    Peace and Love,

    The Cookie Monster


  8. Jennifer

    So…a lazy question. Is there anyway to turn these into a bar cookie? I tried stuffing these another time, and I couldn’t get them to look right and it took me forever. Love these!

  9. Raven Seney

    I made these lastnight..huge hit! I must say, making the brownies and allowing enough to cool while avoiding eating those was a challenge, but well worth it fo rediscover them inside chocolate chip cookies! Well done πŸ™‚

  10. Angela

    I just made these last night and seriously they are SO good. My husband said his favorite favorite desert I’ve made 9.8 rating out of 10! YUM! You have such yummy delicious recipes!

  11. Annie Nguyen

    I have a question can we do this with any chocolate chip cookie recipe? I actually like my cookie more soft than crunchy.

  12. Megan

    I think I did something wrong. Mine are like huge balls after baking. They are not thin like yours. Did you flatten the brownie between the dough?

  13. Kirstin

    These cookies are fantastic! my nephew loves brownies and cookies, so I searched for the perfect recipe to make for his birthday. THIS WAS IT! The first time I made them, I did a double batch and they didn’t turn out quite so good. Although everyone else thought they did, but I’m a hard critic on myself. The 2nd time I made them, they came pout perfectly! It does only about make about 16 cookies if your lucky, but it’s hard to eat a whole one because they are so big. They pair perfectly with a tall glass of milk. And I have to say, my 16 yr old nephew was very happy which was more important to me than anything! Thank You for helping me make my nephew’s day special!

  14. jae


    I made these but mine didn’t flatten. πŸ™ Why? Did I do something wrong? I followed the recipe exactly. I smashed. I baked. Still fluffy.

  15. Jon

    Made a batch of these yesterday and fed them to my housemates. I saw their faces melt with joy before my very eyes πŸ™‚ I think these will be a common sight in my house from now on!

  16. Holli

    These are great. Some how I ended up with twice as many VERY large cookies as you. So yours must be VVEEEEEERRRY large. I thought it was helpful to flatten one ball of cookie dough, wrap it around the brownie and add as much as needed on top.

  17. LizP

    A friend linked me to your site a couple weeks ago and I’m in love! Just pulled some of these out of the oven, but mine didn’t spread out flat like yours! They look delicious, but they’re still pretty round and roly-poly looking. Any suggestions to help them flatten out when I try them again?? Thanks!

  18. Shelly

    I just made these tonight. They are delicious! The only issue I had was sealing the edges. My cookies were WAY bigger than these lol. I will definately make these again sometime. It made 12 VERY large cookies.

  19. Moll

    How you get your cookies to bake so flat is beyond me! I made these for my boyfriend today and I know he’ll love them…even if he can only make it through half of one!

    P.S. If anyone is reading this…I made my brownies in a 9×13 inch pan and the cookie dough only covered half of the pan of brownies (I did cut mine a bit smaller than 2.5 inches, though). In the future I’ll definitely be making two batches of dough.

  20. Amanda

    Super tasty. After I placed 2 scoops of cookie dough on the brownie, I used Saran Wrap to cover the brownie with the cookie dough.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  21. Miranda

    Fun and tasty!
    Mine didn’t spread at all though. The first batch stayed in ball form. I squished the second batch, but they still weren’t as thin.
    Still very good though!

  22. Thanks for this great recipe, two of my most favorite things (cookies and brownies) mixed together. When I do this, I would put chocolate syrup on top to give it a much more intense chocolate flavor.

  23. Heather

    I made these and everyone loved them. Make sure to use this cookie recipe since it keeps its shape. I used my own recipe the first time I made these and it didn’t work out.

  24. Sunny

    I’ve made these brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies twice now. It was easier the second time. I’m not sure how they turned out so flat for you. Do you squish them? Everyone who tries them either wants the recipe or wants me to make them more! I’ve been directing a lot of people to your blog. The funny thing is that I can’t eat chocolate, so my next batch will be with butterscotch brownies and chips instead of the chocolate. Thanks!

  25. Stacy Marie

    I just made these and mine turned out like baseballs. They are quite good and my husband says he will eat them all. Did you flatten yours before you put them in the oven?

  26. I am drooling over all of your yummy cookie recipes! They look absolutely amazing. Looks like I’ll be baking this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!


  27. Several of my friends linked to this post, I’m so glad they led me to your site. I just made these, following your recipe, but my edges didn’t stay sealed and your cookies look so much flatter than mine (my brownie was about 1 1/2 inches tall and it didn’t flatten any). Did you squish your brownie when you wrapped it?

  28. Sue K

    I too stumbled upon your site and have enjoyed exploring it. I made these cookies and they were loved by all. Any ideas as to why mined stayed more domed instead of flattening like yours?

  29. j

    I can never get my cookies to look like yours! yours are so thin and spreadout.. mine stay in a mound shape. I’m nto sure why but i’ve been following your recipes to the T and i’ve tried making 4 batchs of cookies now oevr past few weeks and none of them look are yummmmyyy thin and spreadout like yours.. any thoughts on why mine are staying in a mound shape?

  30. WhAt?!?!?!?!??!?! This is insane!!!! I can’t believe this! I have never even thought of putting these delectable things together. But now that you have shown me….I’m making them tonight. Thanks in advance for the weight gain. πŸ˜‰

  31. Michelle

    Holy Smokes — made these today, except I used my favorite homemade brownie recipe. They are huuuuge! And delish πŸ™‚ We called them Brookies since they are brownies and cookies in one. Thanks for the recipe!

  32. Rachel

    I just made these. Followed your recipe exactly, but ended up with cookie mounds instead of the flatter cookies in your pictures. Either way they are insanely rich and delicious and super easy. Thanks for the recipe!

    Actually, I used 1 stick of butter and 1 stick of margarine. Perhaps that is what caused them to not flatten. The only difference I can think of.

  33. Erica Williams

    Made these last night…The cook temperature and time were off for me. At 350 degrees for 18 minutes, they came out brown and crispy. After adjusting the temperature to 325 and only baking for 15 minutes, they were perfection! We also tried your Chocolate Mousse Filled Snicker’s Cupcakes this past weekend- Fabulous! Thanks for sharing your recipes. You have a great talent!

  34. Wowee!! I made these last night for a bunco group and they turned out amazing! Usually when I make a recipe from a website, it never turns out quite the same as it looks in the pictures- but these turned out just like your pictures! I was so pleased and felt a little mischievous hiding the brownies inside the cookie dough. You chocolate chip cookie recipe is my new go-to for cookies- its perfect! Thank you thanks you- you are truly making this world a better place once wonderful recipe at a time!

  35. Wow, these look sinful. I’ve made cookie topped brownies before, and this recipe looks like the reverse of that idea. I can’t wait to try these out!!!

  36. Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly do anything more with stuffing or brownies. Holy cow. I’m totally making these this weekend!

    PS, I am so enamoured with your inventive baking, I’ve blogged about you in 2 of my blogs and posted about you in at least 3 forums. So glad I happened upon your blog!

    1. So great to have you on my site Linda! You are going to love this cookie, it has been a major hit around here. Do let me know how they turn out for you!

    Just made a batch and LOVED them! The fiance liked them so much he wanted to take a bunch to work so I whipped up another batch, but did 1″ squares for the brownies and substituted peanut butter chips for the chocolate ones (per his requested). I just used my regular size scoop. It made two dozen and they’re delicious with the peanut butter…. just thought you might like the variation πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!!!

  40. OMG, these look sooooooooooooooooooooo good! I’m going to feature these on my blog, if you don’t mind. I can’t wait to make these!

  41. Michelle

    I will be making these this weekend! Your version looks so much better than the other ones!! Your cookies always turn out perfect πŸ™‚

  42. Oh dear, I really wish I hadn’t seen this post…lack of will power + a love of brownies…this is going to end badly!


  43. Wow-these look amazing, what a great idea! I love your site and recipes. I’m going to try and make a gluten/dairy free version of this (we follow a gluten and dairy free diet due to my son). Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes!

  44. Alison

    So I’m a big fan of cookie dough, though I know you’re not really supposed to eat it. Anyway, I have to admit, I wanted to eat the picture where you have the one scoop of dough on top of the brownie square. At first glance, it looked like a brownie sundae! πŸ™‚

    1. penguinadorer

      If you use pasteurized eggs in your cookie dough, which most stores do unless you specifically look for’ll be fine. Your chance of getting sick is so low. Unless you’re immunocompromised.

  45. Rachel

    My friend made a cookie brownie once that my husband loved. My attempts have never been as great. I think these will beat those for sure. Trying them this weekend.

  46. Kelley

    These are what chocolate dreams are made of. Two quick questions though if you can help. What size scoop do you use for the cookie dough, and are those saucer plates for cups that your photo shows the cookies on? Just trying to grasp an idea in relationship to size. My son would love these cookies, and well, because I love him, I just have to make them!

    Thanks Jenny, have a blessed day!
