Salted Caramel Brownie Cookies


Brownie Cookie:

12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

3 tbsp butter

2 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

Salted Caramel Cream Filling:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup caramel sauce


Preheat oven to 350.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and 7oz of the chocolate chips in 15 second intervals, until smooth. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla until creamy.

Add in the flour, baking powder, melted chocolate and remaining chocolate chips.

Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.

Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving enough space for the cookies to spread.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies slightly begin to crack. 

Allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack. 

While the cookies are baking, start on the salted caramel buttercream.

In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter until creamed.

Add in the powdered sugar and salt, and beat until thoroughly combined.

Finally, add in the caramel and beat until fluffy. 

After the cookies have cooled, spread a dollop of buttercream on half of the cookies.

Top each one with the remaining cookies, trying to match the cookies closest in size.
