Tuesdays with Dorie—Chipster-Topped Brownies

Chipster-Topped BrowniesThis recipe is brilliant. It combines the best of both worlds by putting chocolate chip cookie dough on top of brownie batter and baking them together. The cookie forms a crust that hides the soft, moist brownie underneath.

Recipe

Makes 24 brownies (I made 48 minis and one 8x8 pan.)

Chipster-Topped Brownies Ingredients
Brownie Layer:
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1 2/3 cups sugar
4 eggs
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

Cookie Layer:
1¼ cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1½ sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup (packed) light brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

    Cookie and a brownie, that is one sweet treat! Looks good!

    Banjo said...

    I think this would be the best way to eat them, as they are sooo rich! Minis are perfect!

    Audrey said...

    They look wonderful!

    Engineer Baker said...

    As always, minis are just too cute. Portion control *and* irresistable cuteness? I dunno, they might cancel each other out... :)

    Karen said...

    What cute mini treats!! :) They look delicious!

    Katrina said...

    Great idea with the cupcake look. So many had underdone-gooey-ness, but I'll bet yours were perfect doing them in a muffin tin.

    Love those vibrant colours, Shari!

    As usual... too cute and totaly inventive!

    Kim said...

    Love the minis. I loved these and just couldn't stop snacking on them. I would probably be in big trouble if I had little bite size minis.

    Definitely the best of both worlds here. Your little 'pop' version looks awesome!

    katie said...

    You know. I never had one until I went to philadelphia a couple weeks ago. They are addictive and the perfect balance... now just to invert them...
