So I didn’t think that baking could get any more gluttonous than my red velvet brownies, but I was so, so wrong. These bad boys are quite frankly any chocolate lover’s dream. So after my slight disaster making my flatemate’s birthday cake (never ever attempt to bake when hungover), these seemed like the best invention. Ever. Pinterest has once again done me proud!

These pictures speak for themselves, seriously! Try not to drool all over your laptop, it’s not the best look!

If you’re not feeling entirely gluttonous, have a look at my no scale cookies, but, I would highly recommend trying these! Baking with this much chocolate is very much my version of #yolo.

You’ll need:

For the brownie cookies: 

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour/plain flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup (5 1/2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 2 oz chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For the chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cups brown sugar
  • 1 + a knob cups butter, softened or melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour/plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2-4 cups chocolate chips
This is basically the same recipe as my no scale cookies but I’ve changed the measurements slightly so that you have the same amount of dough for your chocolate chip cookies as you do for your brownie cookies. 

Start by making your brownie cookies. Melt your butter and your chocolate, and then add this to your flower, baking powder, salt, sugar in eggs. Basically, mix it all up! You’ll end up with what seems to be a very runny mixture, but I promise it’ll stiffen up when you leave it alone for a while.

Now it’s time to get on with your chocolate chip cookies! Melt the butter, or use softened butter, and then cream this with the sugar.

Add the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and maybe a dash of milk if you feel you need it. Though be careful you don’t add too much milk and end up with a batter instead of cookie dough.

Mix in your lovely chocolate chips.

Now for the fun bit! Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough mixture onto your lined baking tray. Then follow this but spooning your brownie mixture squished up next to your dollop of cookie dough. Pinch them together if there are any little gaps. WARNING! These cookies expand in an incredible way – so make sure you leave enough space in between them so that you don’t end up with one giant cookie. Or maybe you want a giant brookie!

Serve these with gorgeous, creamy ice cream if you’re feeling super-duper indulgent! They really are so tasty!

As always, let me know if you make them – and send me your photos!
