My friend Krystal posted Brookies on her food blog about a week ago. I have been thinking of making them ever since I saw them. They looked DELISH!!!! Well they taste just as good as they look!!!

1 package brownie mix
4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 ½ cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips or miniature chocolate chips

Bake the brownies as listed on package and mix in the 4 ounces of chocolate chunks into the batter. Set aside until it is cool. Cut about 18 inch squares - brownie bites. (I used a 13 x 9 pan.) Remaining brownies can be eaten at your own risk.

Prepare the cookie dough. Mix the butter in a KA mixer until creamy. Add the brown sugar until combined and smooth. Slowly add the eggs one at at time until fully combined. Add the vanilla extract and mix until combined.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix with a whisk. With the KA mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture with the butter mixture and mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips. Let cookie dough chill covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

When you're ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350° degrees. Line your cookies sheets with silpat or parchment paper.

Using an medium-sized ice cream scooper, scoop at least 1/3 cup of cookie dough. Using your finger, make a small indentation in the middle. Press the brownie in the middle very gently, and then work the remaining dough around the brownie. Use your hands to shape the cookie back into a ball. Repeat process for the remaining dough and brownie bites.

Prepare six cookies at a time on a cookie sheet. Bake for 18 minutes until golden brown. Keep the remaining cookie dough in the refrigerator until it is time to bake the next batch.

Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack. ENJOY!!
Yield: About 18 cookies if you're using 1/3 cup for each cookie.

Yum!! They look good. Duncan Hines or someone had this boxed dessert back in the 90's that was cookie on the bottom and brownie on the top. It was the BOMB! I bet these taste just like it.
