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!
