Cookie Layer:

  • 3/4 Cup Butter, Softened
  • 3/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Brownie Layer:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Butter, Melted
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Make the Cookie Layer:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla using an electric mixer on medium speed, until the mixture is well combined and creamy.
  • Add the egg and continue to cream the mixture until it becomes light and fluffy, or for about 2 minutes. Set mixture aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda until evenly combined. Gradually mix flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined. Mix in chocolate chips.
  • Spread cookie dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish covering the pan completely. Set aside.

Make the Brownie Layer:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together granulated sugar, melted butter, and vanilla. Add eggs and mix until completely combined.
  • Stir cocoa powder into sugar/butter mixture and mix until well combined. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until incorporated.
  • Pour brownie mixture evenly over cookie dough, covering the dough completely.
  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs (not batter, just a couple of crumbs), about 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool completely. The brownies need this time to finish setting. I prefer to cool them then refrigerate them overnight before serving.
