When Omer came to bake with me a few weeks ago, not only we made these amazing energy bars with peanut butter, but also this following recipe; chocolate chip cookie brownies. The number of requests that I got for this recipe after posting an Instagram Story from our baking session was enormous, so finally I just had to post the recipe already.
So, here it is – chocolate chip cookie brownies! They are made of a delicious fudge brownie bottom topped with giant buttery chocolate chip cookie, cut into square after cooling down. If sometimes you do not know if you want brownie or cookies – that’s the recipe for you. A gorgeous combination of textures and flavors in chocolatey bars of heaven. Are you still here? 😉
