Hi all! I thought I'd share this lovely creation since it's a combination of two such amazing desserts. I'll be the first to defend the side of the brownie debate against frosting. I really think brownies with frosting are just ruined... But sometimes I want more than just a square of chocolate gooeyness. So when I saw this: http://cakescraps.wordpress.com/2009/10/01/cookie-dough-brownies/ I goggled, and ran out to buy chocolate chips.



I'll admit that I went against my better instincts and used a boxed brownie mix, something I'd normally never do because I really enjoy baking from scratch. I figured since I was topping it with cookie dough it didn't have to be an extra special brownie...and also I was just feeling kind of lazy today. Tongue In all honesty, I think it probably wouldn't be worth the extra effort to do the brownie from scratch, the cookie dough is more the star of this. Smiley

Mixing up and tasting the cookie dough recipe from that blog, I was really disappointed. It did not taste like cookie dough, and then I realized it was missing two of the most important ingredients! Salt and vanilla extract! So here's my revised recipe:

1 boxed brownie mix (plus whatever it instructs you to mix into it- usually water, oil and an egg)
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
4-1/2 tbsp 10% cream
1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips. (the blog says 1 1/2 cups, but even 1 cup seemed like a bit much to me)
1 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (this is a guess, I just threw in a splash, it could have been up to a full tsp)

1.Prepare brownie mix, but use a 9x13 pan so that it's thinner. bake until toothpick comes out clean, set aside to cool.
2.Cream butter and sugars in a mixing bowl, then add cream, vanilla and salt and blend well. Add flour and mix thoroughly.
3. Stir in chocolate chips
4. When brownies are cool, spread cookie dough evenly over top. I had to warm my cookie dough up so it would spread without crushing the brownie to smithereens, but I don't know if that's just because I have a cold kitchen. Then refrigerate until cookie dough is firm, cut into squares and serve!


Seriously, TRY THEM. I described it to one of my friends as "orgasm in a pan". Not kidding.

Wow, yum.
All last night I was searching for what could sate my sugar craving today. I might just have to make these NOW!

Thanks for posting, they look delicious. And as a bonus - the hub loves cookie dough.
