Do you ever wish that you could eat a cookie and a brownie at the same time? No one would blame you. Both of these classic desserts are highly sought after and scrumptious in their own ways. Brownies are a chocolate lovers dream, with dense, yet fluffy melt-in-your-mouth flavor. Cookies are crisp, versatile and for most people, riddled with nostalgia. This recipe combines both sweets and creates a perfectly harmonious dessert.

• 3 cups powdered sugar
• ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• ½ teaspoon kosher salt
• 2 large egg whites
• 1 large egg
• 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
• 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, your choice of milk or white chocolate

Place cooking racks in lower and upper thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl. Slowly add in the egg whites and egg then fold in the chocolate. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, or butter the bottom of the sheet, and place tablespoons of the batter two inches apart across it. Bake until the cookies are puffed up and crack slightly on the top, rotating once throughout the baking process. It should take around 14-16 minutes. Let the cookies cool on pans, they might fall apart if taken off directly after baking, and enjoy.
