Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Oh my sugar overload.

I ate one of these and I think my sweet tooth almost jumped outta my mouth (or exploded altogether). I've decided Ryan needs a little fattening-up, so when he said he'd slick up the entire pan throughout the week, I didn't discourage that idea for a second - even with all the sugar involved in that decision. These are so dang yummy - the gooey brownie with the soft cookie dough. It's kind of ridiculous.

This recipe needed a little tweaking for my taste, mostly with the sugar in the cookie dough (changed from regular sugar to powdered sugar to not have a grainy texture in the dough, and the cooking time for the brownies. Also, thank heavens the cookie dough doesn't require any eggs (not that I ever say no to raw cookie dough with eggs... heh).

Glass of milk should probably be nearby after consuming these. Yes, I'm threatening you. "Michael Bluth is threatening me!" - name that quote (without google) and you get 50 awesome points.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

recipe adapted from 'recipegirl.com'

Brownie:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour


Cookie Dough:  
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips


1. Prepare the brownies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick spray. In a medium glass bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave in short bursts of 30 seconds; stir after each burst and remove from microwave when melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk those in too. Mix in melted chocolate. Whisk in the flour and mix just until combined (don't over-mix). Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 25 to 35 minutes (I checked mine at 35, and it was still gooey, so I added about 15 minutes and it was perfect). Watch closely and remove from oven when toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

2. Prepare the cookie dough: In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix in milk and vanilla. Mix in flour just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Spread cookie dough over the cooled brownies. Refrigerate until the dough is quite firm. It's okay to speed up the process and place it in the freezer too. The firmer the dough, the easier it will be to cut into neat squares.

  2. Thanks Karyn for visiting - this recipe won't disappoint! As for following, if you look up at the top of the page on the Navbar, there should be the word "Follow" at the top left next to "Share". Eventually I'll have it all on the sidebar, but for now that should do. Thanks!
