Irresistible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

June 24, 2012

Chocolate chip cookie dough brownies are an irresistible dessert.  What could be better than cookie dough and brownies combined? Nothing!  Chocolate chip cookie dough is sandwiched between brownie batter and baked.  If you are feeling especially sinful, you can frost this dessert with chocolate icing.  

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

For the Brownie Batter: 
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
5 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup (or half a bag) chocolate chips

For the Cookie Dough Batter:
3/4 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup (or other half of the bag) chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat desired cooking pan(s) with nonstick spray.

For the Brownie Batter:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla; stir well.

In a second bowl, blend the flour, cocoa, salt & baking powder.

Add dry mixture to wet mixture in 1-2 cup intervals, stirring just until all ingredients are blended. (Add the chocolate chips last.)

For the Cookie Dough Batter:

Mix together brown sugar, granulated sugar, milk, egg and vanilla. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder; add to sugar mixture.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

For the Assembly:

Spoon half of the brownie batter into the bottom of the pan. Smooth it out as well as you can with the back of your spoon.

Next, add all of the cookie dough batter to the pan, one spoonful at a time. Try not to disturb the brownie layer as you add the second layer.

Finally, add the remaining half of the brownie batter to the top, again trying not to disturb the lower layers.

Place in the oven and bake at 350. Start checking it at 30 minutes.

Cool completely in pan; slice and serve.
