- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 + 2 TBSP cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 TBSP unsalted butter, slightly melted
- 2 TBSP granulated sugar
- 4 TBSP brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2/3 cup + 2 TBSP all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 – 2 1/2 cups cookie dough ice cream
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, leaving enough hang over the edges to pull up on after the bars are done baking.
- Brownies: Melt the butter with 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Whisk in the sugar until combined. Add vanilla and the eggs, whisking until incorporated. Stir in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Spread evenly in the pan.
- Cookies: Whisk together butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk together until combined. Stir in salt, baking soda, and flour – it may seem like there’s too much flour at first, but keep stirring! Add in chocolate chips.
- Dollop the cookie dough onto the brownie batter, pressing down on it to form more of a cookie-like shape. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until edges are set and cookies are slightly golden brown. Be careful to not overbake! Let cool completely.
- Remove ice cream from the freezer 10-15 minutes prior to spreading to soften slightly. Remove brookies from the pan using the parchment paper. Cut down the middle of the bars, creating two equal-sized halves. Flip one half over, so the top is facing down, back into the pan.
- Dollop ice cream across the brookies in the pan and spread evenly. Fill any gaps in with additional ice cream. Place the second half of the brookies on top of the ice cream, right side up. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours, preferably longer, until frozen solid. Use a biscuit cutter if making round sandwiches, or a chef’s knife to cut out square sandwiches. Enjoy immediately or place back in the freezer until ready to eat.
Milk chocolate chips work in the cookies, too!
