Cookie Dough Brownies


Cookie Dough

  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 10 tablespoons 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs


For Cookie Dough

  • With your mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar. Beat in vanilla and salt, mix.
  • Gradually add flour. The mixture will be crumbly.
  • Add in 2 tablespoons of milk and mix.
  • Stir in mini chocolate chips. Set aside.

For Brownies

  • Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Whisk flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl; set aside. Spray an 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Fit a sheet of foil in pan and up two sides, so you can use it as a handle to pull cooked brownies from pan. Spray sheet with cooking spray.
  • Melt chocolates and butter in a medium bowl over a pan of simmering water or use a double broiler. Remove from heat; whisk in sugar and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Continue to whisk until mixture is completely smooth and glossy. Add dry ingredients, whisk until just incorporated.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan; bake until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in center comes out with wet crumbs, 35-45 minutes.
  • Cool brownies in pan on a wire rack for five minutes. Use handles to pull brownies from pan. Completely cool brownies on rack.
  • Once brownies are cool evenly spread cookie dough over top. I used a spatula for this. Wet fingers might also work well. Chill for 30 minutes to harden slightly. This makes it easier to cut. Serve.
