White Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

These white chocolate chip brownie cookies are a huge hit in my house. Not a fan of white chocolate chip? Try dark or milk chocolate chips!

What do you get when you cross a brownie and a cookie? okay so yeah a brownie cookie. BUT these aren’t just ANY brownie cookies, these are some seriously addicting white chocolate chip brownie cookies.

I didn’t even bother to fight off the temptation. With my own pile of cookies I watched my husband keep walking in and out of the kitchen each time with a fresh stack of cookies in his palm, saying “WHYYY are these so flippin’ good??”

Uh-duh, they’re BROWNIES in the form of COOKIES! I mean c’mon?!

cookies (1)

Next up I’m thinking brownie pancakes, brownie ice cream and maybe brownie nachos… but that recipe still needs some work. Whattya think, too much?

It’s pretty basic stuff that you probably already have in your pantry. A little of this… a little of that. And before you know it it’s time to unhinge your jaw and slide the whole plate right on in!

Start by adding the cocoa powder and the flour in a medium-sized bowl.

Add in the baking soda, powder. I don’t add salt, and you can’t even tell.

Stir it up with a whisk until combined and set aside.

In the bowl of your mixer; add in two sticks {or one cup} of butter.

Add in the sugars.

And blend until light and creamy. I always stop here and do some finger-swipe-taste-testing because let’s face it… sugar and butter is there anything better?

Add in one egg in at a time until completely blended.

Scrape down the sides as you go.

Gradually add in the cocoa/flour mixture.

Mix on low to avoid a cocoa dust cloud. Good luck and hold your breath… wait never mind, ahhhhh chocolate.

Mix just until the flour becomes one with the sugar and butter.

Then add in the white chocolate chips.

Gently mix or fold them in.

Use a couple spoons and form the white chocolate chip brownie cookie dough into uniform lumps. Slide them into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Ps you might want to pat them flat with your fingertips a bit because they won’t spread like regular cookies would.

Next, remove the white chocolate chip brownie cookies and let cool for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Baking is always better with few extra sets of hands.

Finally, serve these white chocolate chip brownie cookies up with a tall glass of milk and enjoy. Brownies + Cookies = Love.
The End.

    How am I ever going to lose weight if you keep posting recipes like this!?! I've been missing you at Weekend Potluck. Have you been there and I am just to sleep deprived to notice?

    By the way, I pinned this recipe to my Must Have Chocolate board.

    "I always stop here and do some finger-swipe-taste-testing" I thought I was the only one out there! Butter and sugar – especially brown sugar – are amazing! These look ridiculously good!

    Brownie cookies are the best, and can only be made better with white chocolate chips. They look perfectly rich!

    YUM! I made brownie cookies a couple of weeks ago! Potbelly's has an awesome brownie cookie… with 460 calories! So, I tried to make my own, slightly healthier version. I love the white chocolate in yours!

    I just found your page through pinterest and I'm loving your recipes. Could you tell me the name of the recipe for the pasta dish shown just under your logo on the website? I tried to hover my mouse over it to see if the name would show but it doesn't. I want to add it to my board for food to try.

    Love the pics of the kids! So cute!
    What's funny is…I attempted a "brownie cookie" like dessert yesterday.
    When I saw you last night at work it was just after I had the panel of "greeter desk judges" sample my desserts.
    I don't think they're nearly as good as yours but I do think it's funny we're having the same choco-brownie cookie

    These cookies look so good! My mother in law makes brownie cookies, but they don't involve white chocolate chips. They're the perfect touch!

    White chocolate and I don't get along. How about peanut butter chips?

    Your kids are so lovely. I'm glad they are exposed to baking at an early age. They will surely have a good time recalling those happy moments in the kitchen with you when they get older.

    Do you think these cookies would taste good just chocolate? I need quick cookies and these look good even without white chocolate. Thanks!

    I have made these twice in two weeks…most recently for a school Fun Fair bake walk…they are SOOOOOOOOOO good and look really pretty and professional. Plus, they hold up really well if you accidentally leave them on the cooling rack all night–they stay moist and chewy! YUM!

    • simplyscratch replied: — June 9th, 2013 @ 6:35 pm

      Hi Kelly! That’s good to know! I’ve done that SO many times and the cookies are dry and gross! So glad to hear you loved them!

    lisa g. — January 9, 2015 at 12:48 am

    Ohh I gotta make these..they will solve many problems! I need to know if the dough needs chilled before baking? Some cookie recipes with butter spread flat during baking. Thank you for such a delicious recipe.
