A fun twist on the classic chocolate chip cookies that makes them even more mouth-watering. Chunks of brownie brittle tucked into soft, buttery cookie dough. These cookies are pretty amazing! Brownie and cookie all in one. The best of both worlds.
I saw this at the store and knew I had to have it. I wasn't sure what I was going to make, but it went into my cart. I decided on cookies because
I mean, just look at that dough. Those big chunks of brittle are so good!!
The cookie recipe is such a great base recipe. It uses cornstarch which is like magic in cookies. It keeps them so soft and prevents them from spreading too much. It requires some chill time, but it's so worth it. I kind of like it that way. I usually make the dough late at night, let it chill while I sleep, then bake the cookies the next morning or afternoon. You could even let it sit a couple days.
In order to get consistent cookies, I always line my cookie sheet with parchment paper (a silpat will also work), use a cookie scoop, and top each mound of dough with 9-12 chocolate chips. This ensures even baking time and a pretty end result.
The brownie brittle gets kind of soft, so when you bite in it you get soft cookie with a chunk of semi-soft brownie. It's pure bliss!
So perfect with a cold glass of milk...or made into an ice cream sandwich!
