Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
1 boxed brownies mix + necessary ingredients, mixed according to package directions (I used Ghirardelli double chocolate)
¾ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
12-16 mini chocolate candies of choice! (I used Milky Ways but also suggest Rolo's)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8"x8" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a standing mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Turn mixer speed to low and incorporate dry ingredients.
Remove from standing mixer and, using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough evenly into prepared baking pan. Squish mini candies to break their coating and place on top of cookie dough.
Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Spread batter evenly over cookie dough and candies. Bake for 55 minutes.* Allow CCC Brownies to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan. Cut into squares and enjoy!
