Um…hello! Cookie Dough AND Brownies!!! Does it get much better than that? I. Think. Not.
I recently came across another cooking/baking blog called Five Year Plan who is hosting a monthly baking challenge. I decided to join in on the challenges because, well…I love to eat bake! This month’s challenge was something chocolate. Um…yeah…this was a simple one for me! Enter Cookie Dough Brownies. (FYI – October’s challenge is “Halloween” check out Rach’s blog if you wanna join in!)
I can’t remember where I got this recipe exactly, but I think I came across it somewhere online. But once I made these, I was hooked. Totally hooked. I mean seriously. Hooked. I have always been a cookie-dough eater. Straight from the bowl when making homemade chocolate chip cookies. Straight from the package when making break-apart chocolate chip cookies. Cookie Dough Blizzards. You name it, I’ve probably had it. So when I found this recipe I think I actually yelped in excitement. And let me tell you…when I tasted them…I think I screamed in delight!
So, here’s what you need for these ridiculously easy brownies.
1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients to make ’em. (or your favorite scratch recipe)
1-1/2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
4-1/2 tbsp milk
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups mini chocolate chips.
Just prepare your brownies according to the package in a 9×13 pan. Let cool completely.
Next, combine the butter, sugars, milk and flour until well combined. Then stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Spread the cookie dough on the cooled brownies.
Then chill the brownies until the cookie dough is firm. Cut into bars.
