Milano Cookie Brownies

Makes 9 brownies
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder 
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract 
  • 1 stick unsalted butter 
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar 
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 14 Milano cookies 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 8x8" pan. 

Crack the eggs into a bowl, and beat them with the cocoa, salt, baking powder and vanilla until smooth. 

In a saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add sugar and stir until combined. Remove from heat.

Add the butter mixture to the cocoa mixture and stir. Add the flour, 1/4 cup at a time, and mix until just combined.

Spoon half of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Place the Milano cookies on top of the batter in an even layer. Top with remaining brownie batter. 

Bake the brownies for about 25-28 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove them from the oven and cool on a rack before cutting and serving.
