Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies


   There are some recipes that should come with a huge WARNING label! This is one of them. These babies are not low cal in any way, shape or form, so don't blame me if you gain a few pounds after eating one! These treats combine two of my most favorite things in life (besides my kids and hubby)... brownies and cookie dough. And not just any cookie dough. Eggless, safe to eat cookie dough. *Sigh* There is nothing better.

   I saw these delectable treats over at Lori's scrumptious blog, Recipe Girl. I fainted when I saw the picture. I thought, 'How genius can anyone be to come up with this?'  I adapted the recipe by using a boxed brownie mix (to make my life easier) and slightly changed up the cookie dough batter. They turned out wonderful. They are purely sinful. Have a big, cold glass of milk nearby. These things are rich!


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
Makes 18 Brownies


1 box (18 oz) of your favorite Brownie mix ( I used Betty Crocker Triple Chunk)
(plus the eggs, oil and water the mix calls for)
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons Milk
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, divided
1 teaspoon Shortening

DIRECTIONS:  Make brownies according to the package directions, using a 9x9 inch square baking pan. Remove from oven and let them cool completely.

FOR COOKIE DOUGH:  Beat the butter, both sugars, vanilla and milk together in a medium bowl. Stir in the flour and 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough evenly over the top of the cooled brownies. Cover and place in refrigerator to chill for atleast 3 hours.

FOR DRIZZLE:  Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of shortening together in a small bowl, in the microwave. Once melted, stir and then pour into a small sandwich baggie. Snip off one corner and squeeze chocolate to drizzle over the brownies. Cut into squares and devour!

I saw this post on my dashboard and said to myself: "I am not going to click on that. I do NOT need to click on that." And what happened? My finger clicked on it! Apparently I just HAD to see that amazing brownie even larger! These look to die for. I wish I lived with you. Now I have to make sure the husband never sees these. He'll want to live with you, too! :)

Oh yum. I love this combo, too. That's why I love Ben and Jerry's Half Baked ice cream. It is this heavenly combo in ice cream.

We must be on the same wavelength! I just posted today my recipe for Giant Brookies (brownie and cookies). Love the idea of cookie dough though, uncooked. Yum.

Hi. I saw this photo in Mandy's Tuesday link up, and it's the first one I went to! Our blogs have a similar theme--easy but delicious desserts. I like the fancy stuff too, but I don't always have time and I prefer stuff I can just mix up quickly that I know my family will love. I look forward to exploring your blog more!
