Instructions

Brownie Layer:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour or use baking spray a 13x9 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, add the butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs.
  3. Add in the cocoa powder, chocolate chips and salt and whisk until well combined.
  4. Add in the flour and whisk until just combined (don't overwhisk)
  5. Bake about 25-28 minutes or just until done in the center.

  6. Remove and cool on a rack until no longer hot.

Cookie Dough Layer:

  1. In a bowl with a mixer or a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars until they are noticeably lighter in color and very fluffy.
  2. This usually takes a couple of minutes.

  3. Add in water and vanilla and mix for a couple of seconds.
  4. Add in flour, salt and one cup of the chocolate chips and mix until all combined.
  5. The chips are so small they won't break apart in there.
  6. If you are worried or use an alternate type of mix in that is more fragile, use a spatula or whisk to incorporate the mix-ins.
  7. Spread the cookie dough onto the cooled brownies and sprinkle on the remaining half cup of mini chocolate chips.
  8. Press them into the top very lightly so they "stick."
