This recipe for Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars is the perfect fusion between a cookie and a brownie that’s crisp, chewy and a chocolate lover’s dream
I recently saw an episode of the Barefoot Contessa of the Barefoot Contessa where she was making both cookies and Blondies from the same chocolate chip cookie dough. After watching it, I knew I had to try it with my Double chocolate chip cookies recipe to see if it would create brownies.
The answer – I don’t think so. to me, brownies should be fudgey and melt in your mouth and these are not quite a brownie and not quite a cookie, so I decided they are much more of a cookie bar than anything else.
They are rich, chewy and full of chocolaty goodness and definitely worth the experiment!
Making them is super easy. Start with melting chocolate in the microwave until just melted. Set aside.
Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix to combine well followed by the melted chocolate.
Mix to combine and then mix in the dry ingredients.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread into a greased pan and bake.
Let cool before serving and enjoy!
