Ever since my friend Sheryl first shared with me her freshly made cookie dough brownies, I knew I had to make this recipe! I am a cookie dough lover, and have been known to bake a batch of cookies just because I'd like to eat some cookie dough. No joke. Well, this recipe is much safer as the cookie dough contains no eggs, but it's just as gooey and sweet as the real deal. Topping a fudgy homemade brownie with cookie dough was just brilliant! People will love you for these brownies. Seriously.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies Recipe
recipe adapted from Taste of Home
Makes 24-36 servings
1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
*I drizzled chocolate syrup over top.
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, optional
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees, then grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, cream together egg, oil and sugar. Beat in vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa and salt, then stir in gradually to wet ingredients. Stir in walnuts if desired.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until brownies test done. Cool completely.
For filling, in a large bowl, cream together butter, brown and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in milk and vanilla. Gently stir in flour. Fold in chocolate chips. Once brownies are cooled, spread evenly over the top of the brownies and refrigerated until set.
For glaze, drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving OR in a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Spread over filling. Immediately sprinkle with nuts, pressing down slightly.
