Brownie Cookies

Welcome to A Quirky Twist! In the past when I’ve had cookies and brownies together, it’s always been with cookies on top of brownies. When I found this recipe I got really excited, I’ve never seen brownies in cookie form. I think this recipe would be something fun and relatively easy to take people’s minds off of the upcoming finals season. One thing I will say is that the cookie portion made way too much batter, so I’ll include the full portions below but just keep that in mind when recreating the recipe. If you have any suggestions for series or posts you want to see this summer let me know in a comment or email me. I’ll be posting another fashion post next week, and Happy early Easter!

Directions

Start Brownie Recipe First

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper (I just sprayed it with cooking spray and that worked fine). In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt set aside.

Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop rounds of chocolate chip cookie dough onto baking sheet. Use another tablespoon or ice cream scoop to scoop rounds of brownie cookie dough next to each round of chocolate chip cookie dough. Join the cookies together by a small pinch to adhere any gaps.
