Thaaank You, Betty!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

This recipe may be harmful to certain New Year’s Resolutions. Proceed at your own risk!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

When it comes to sweets, I really have very simple tastes. If it’s chocolate, then brownies are pretty much a home run. And well, if it’s a cookie, then chocolate chip is all I need. So, when I came across a recipe from the Betty Crocker website for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies there was only one thing to do. Race to the grocery store and pick up a couple of things.

One Betty Crocker Brownie Mix and one Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix. I’m sure these would work with scratch recipes too, but Betty has made it so easy. She’s so nice.

Here’s what the packages look like.

Betty Crocker, baby!

Follow the directions on the box for making the brownies and pour into a greased 13 X 9 pan. I use a glass one with a lid like this.

Brownie Batter

Make the cookie mix as directed on the pouch and drop by rounded tablespoons into the brownie batter. You’ll want to press the dough down lightly.

Bake for 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven. When they’re done, take them out and let them cool completely. For about an hour.

Then, you can frost them with chocolate frosting or for a yummier version, do what I did.

Whip up some chocolate ganache. (Recipe below) Pour it on top and spread it out evenly.

Now, this is the hardest step.

Leave it alone. That’s right, you’ll want to let the ganache set up. It will be tough, but you can do it.

Once the ganache has set, then cut the brownies and enjoy.

Happy New Year and sorry in advance for ruining any of your resolutions. But, let’s face it, they probably wouldn’t last anyway. So go ahead and treat yourself.

Oh golly, these look awesome. You are cruel. Double.
1) I – under no circumstances – absolutely never – buy or use mixes.
2) Even if I was, I am not from America and it’s hard to even find brownie mixes.

? No awesome cookie-brownies for me :( Damn.

I made something similiar to this recently but with one notable difference. The bottom layer is cookie dough, THEN you do a layer or OREOS (!!!!) and then you do the brownie layer. It’s seriously the best thing ever. Here’s a link to where I found them.
I made them in a 13×9 and baked them for 37 minutes. They seem like they aren’t done, but let them sit for about an hour and then they will still be extremely gooey and directly from heaven. Your thighs will HATE you.
