Cookie Dough Topped Brownies

What’s better than a rich, dark chocolate brownie? … Topping it with a layer of gooey cookie dough. The brownie layer is lighter to balance out the dense chewiness of dough that sits on top and a kiss of sea salt gives the bar richness and depth. It’s a unique combination that will have you thinking your mouth is playing tricks on you. Dunk one in a glass of cold milk and enjoy!

Ingredients:

For the brownie:

  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Method:

For the brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9×13-inch parchment lined pan.
  2. In a medium glass bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract, scraping the bowl as needed.
  5. Mix in the melted chocolate until combined.
  6. Reduce the speed to low, add the flour and mix just until combined (don’t over-mix).
  7.  Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 25 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

  1. This would be heaven if it was food. I don’t even know if I can make these because I would eat every single one in less than a minute. You should sell these one the side! 😉
