Chocolate Chip Brownie Chunk Cookies

My husband made these delicious little morsels.  It started when he saw the recipe for Pioneer
Woman's Brownie Bites.  But they didn't turn out quite as pretty as he fact they sort of fell apart.  
But since he's someone who hates waste, he turned a flop into something fantastic. 

Inspired by the recipe found at Picky Palate, he made these delicious cookies that had just the right amount of sweetness and chewy texture.  Perfect with a big glass of ice cold milk.  

Here's the recipe:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups cubed prepared brownies
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment or silpat liner.
2. Place butter and sugars into the bowl of a stand or electric mixer, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
3. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips and brownie chunks until just combined.
4. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 1-inch apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Makes 3 dozen cookies
