Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the brownie cookie dough:
    • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

    • Add the chocolate chips.
  4. Assemble the cookies:
    • Take small balls from each dough. Press a scoop of brownie batter and a scoop of chocolate chip batter together, then roll them in your hands to form a larger ball.
    • Place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  5. Cook:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 11 minutes, until the edges are set but the center is still soft.
    • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired, just after cooking.
  6. Cool and serve:
