Grandma's Chocolate Chunk Brownie Cookies

2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped chocolate
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped brownies 

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter; cook and whisk until butter foams and starts to turn golden brown.

Place browned butter in a large mixing bowl; add sugar, brown sugar, and corn syrup.  Mix, using a mixer on medium speed, until incorporated.  Beat in egg, one at a time, until incorporated.  Mix in vanilla.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chunks and brownie chunks until combined.  Refrigerate 1 hour, or overnight.  Dough must be really cold and firm.

Drop rounded tablespoons full of dough onto cookie sheets, spacing an 1 1/2 inches apart.  Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 1 dozen large cookies

  1. These look absolutely delicious and I love the chocolate and brownie pieces in the cookie! Have great day!

  2. I'm getting emotional just looking at these. Not even kidding! I need these to be in front of me.

  3. Brownies in CCC' are a genius girl!

  4. I love that you don't waste anything, leftover brownies, cake crumbs, etc. I have an old recipe for cheesecake with brownie chunks in it, but these cookies sound better (and quicker gratification too!)

    1. Oooh that sounds delicious. Maybe I should make that for New Years dessert?

  5. These look epic. I can't wait to make a batch of these as soon as the holidays are over! Congrats on graduating!
