sunday sweets {cookie dough brownies}

This is actually one of my Mother's recipes. It probably shouldn't be called a brownie since there's so much going on, but for the purpose of this post, we'll call it that. These are so decedent and rich that one will fill you up as much as an entire meal, which is why I'll be packing them up and taking them with me to work later. I can't have these sitting around the house, they're kind of dangerous.

For the Brownie {you can use brownie mix, but if you want to make them from scratch, here's an awesome recipe}:
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
8 tbsp {one cup} of butter
2/3 cup cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease Brownie Pan.
2. Melt the unsweetened chocolate. You can microwave the chocolate alone on 50% power for 2 minutes {i would do 1 minute, check, and repeat} . Add the butter to the melted chocolate and stir until combined. Set aside to cool.
3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl. Set aside.
4. Whisk sugar into cooled chocolate mixture. Whisk in eggs and vanilla, then fold in flour mixture until just combined.
5. Pour batter into greased 8-inch square metal baking dish, bake about 20 minutes, or until slightly undercooked, but not gooey inside. Set aside to cool.

For Cookie Dough Filling:
1/2 cup butter softened
1/2 cup brown sugar {packed}
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp milk
1 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add milk and vanilla, blend well.
3. Lightly spoon flour into mixture and mix well. Add chips and spread over COOLED brownies.

For Chocolate Glaze:
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp butter

Melt chips and butter in microwave about 1-2 minutes or until melted. Stir until combined. Smooth over filling. Chill until set.

It may seem like there's a lot of steps to these, but they're really not difficult at all. Plus they're super delicious. Enjoy!


  1. I'm definitely going to try these, thanks!

  2. Looks like there's a lot to love about these brownies. I have a sweet treat linky party on my blog that opens up later today and I'd like to invite you to stop by sometime and link your brownies up.
