Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies


OK, just puttin' it out there, these brownies are seriously good. Like, really good.

I'm not going to lie, I have made these brownies 3 times. (heh. heh.)

Think about this.

Cookie dough+(fantastic enough on it`s own)+brownies+chocolate drizzle= HEAVEN!!

You are free to do a happy dance now. :)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Adapted from

Yield: 16 brownies
Prep Time: 30 min + chill time
Cook Time: 25 min


( I used a box brownie mix, but I've made these before and they are excellent as well)
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature or almost melted
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk or cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup miniature chocolate chips
additional miniature chocolate chips, if desired (to garnish the top)


For the brownie layer-
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x9-inch pan with nonstick spray, then line

with a strip of parchment paper so that it covers the bottom and comes up two sides of the

pan. Spray the parchment with nonstick spray too.

2. In a microwave safe bowl (or in the top of a double boiler or pan set on top of a pan of

simmering water), microwave in 30 second bursts to melt butter and chocolate chips

together until all is melted and smooth. Whisk in the sugars, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla

and salt. Sift flour into the bowl and stir that in too. Scrape the brownie batter into the

prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the brownie layer is cooked through

(toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean). Place the pan of brownies in the

refrigerator to speed up the cooling process (or cool at room temperature and add the

cookie dough layer

For the cookie dough layer:
3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, sugars and salt until soft and

creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Mix in the milk and vanilla. Sprinkle in the flour and mix in until

combined. Stir in the 1 cup of chocolate chips. Scoop the cookie dough onto the top of the

brownies and spread onto the brownie layer. I find that it's easiest to do this if the brownie

layer is chilled and firm. Wet your hands or spray them with nonstick spray and pat the

cookie dough on top in a even layer. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top to create a

nicer, visual appearance. For easy, clean cutting, chill the brownies (wrap the brownies with

plastic wrap and chill until firm- 1 to 2 hours or up to 2 days).
4. Cut the brownies: Run a knife along the sides of the brownie pan and then use the

parchment paper to lift the brownies from the pan and onto a cutting board. Slice the

brownies with a sharp knife, wiping the knife with a paper towel between cuts. If you'd like

all of your slices of brownies to look clean-cut without edges, use the knife to cut the sides

of the brownies off before cutting pieces. Keep brownies slices covered and chilled until

ready to serve.
