    For an extra crispy cookie-like base, pre-bake the cookie dough for 15 minutes, If you prefer a softer base layer don’t pre-bake. Either way will support the brownie layer.

    Whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa and salt together. Meanwhile melt the butter over low heat. Turn off heat and add the chocolate. Stir gently with a whisk as the chocolate melts then whisk the mixture smooth. In a second bowl whisk the eggs with the vanilla. Scrape and discard the whisk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and mix well with a wooden spoon or the like.
