Last night, I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bar's.
Oh.my.word. They are delicious! I mean, they are oh-my-stars, where-have-you-been-all-my-life, delicious.
Chocolate Chip Brownie Bars
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
4 large eggs, divided
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 box brownie mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with heavy duty aluminum foil with a 2 inch overhang. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar at medium-high speed with a mixer until fluffy. Add 2 eggs, beating until well blended. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until mixture forms a soft dough. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. In another bowl, combine brownie mix, oil, water, and remaining 2 eggs, beating until well blended.
4. Spread cookie dough in prepared pan. Pour brownie mixture over dough. Using a knife, swirl mixtures together. Bake 40 minutes or until edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let cool in the pan for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours (I couldn't wait that long to try these yummies.) Cut into bars.
These go great with coffee. (No, I am not having coffee and chocolate for breakfast dessert!)
Speaking of coffee, did you notice my empty Starbucks cup in the picture?
