  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9" rectangular baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil liberally with cooking spray; set aside briefly.
  • For the cookie: beat together the butter, sugars, and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beating until creamy. Add in the egg and beat until fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in the dry ingredients and beat on low speed until a dough comes together. Stir in the chocolate chips, then spread the cookie layer evenly into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  • For the brownie: Stir together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla together in a medium bowl until blended. Add in the eggs and mix well. Stir in the dry ingredients until batter just comes together. Pour the batter evenly over the cookie layer.
  • Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Do not over-bake these as it will lead to dry, crumbly bars. You want them to be slightly underdone as they'll continue to cook as they cool down.
