Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

From the first time I saw the recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies, I knew I’d enjoy them. I love brownies, and I love cookies, so the combination of the two was sure to be a hit. Unless you’re a Debbie Downer, and don’t like either. In that case, you might as well stop reading! 🙂

This recipe can be found floating around the blog world, as well as on the box of Betty Crocker Supreme brownie mixes. Where ever I’ve seen it blogged about, it’s always gotten rave reviews, and I can happily say I’ve gotten some fantastic responses from friends who have tried the brownies. They are chocolatey, decadent, and just the right ratio of brownie to cookie dough. Plus, adding the ganache on top seals the deal on how delicious the brownies are.

Enjoy with a glass of milk or a scoop of ice cream!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Recipe from Betty Crocker

1 box Betty Crocker Supreme brownie mix with syrup

1 pouch Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix, OR, 1/2 batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I preferred making my own dough, as I found the pouch mix to be quite dry

12 oz. Baker’s Semi-Sweet squares

3/4 c. heavy cream

6 Tbsp. butter

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom only of a 9 x 13 pan. Prepare the brownie mix as directed. Pour into pan. Set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prepare cookie dough as directed.

Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the brownie batter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Press down slightly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until toothpick comes out almost clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ganache:

Chop the chocolate and place in a bowl. Heat the cream and butter just until it begins to simmer. Pour over the chopped chocolate. Let sit 5 minutes, then stir until smooth. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour the ganache over the cooled brownies, spread, and let stand until the ganache has set.
