Thaaank You, Betty!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

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.

Chocolate Ganache

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.

  36. I can’t believe I read this post 1 hour too late. My daughters were fighting over what treat we were going to make tonight. One wanted chocolate chip cookies, and the other wanted brownies. We even had the exact same packages you showed! The cookies won! We will for sure try these another night! Can’t wait!

  37. Please DO NOT share this recipe with my 24 year old daughter…she will force me to make them for her and ship them fed ex. She makes me do these things…out of love and affection.
    Who am I kidding….I make a double batch and keep one for us!

  38. Wow! That looks really delicious! Two of my favourites combines to create such a delight. A challenge for next weekend =]

  39. These look great, but curious, 12 tablespoons is 3/4 cup–is there is reason to use the tablespoons, or would a cup work just as well?

  40. m?d?lina – it hurts so good.

    April Van Wagenen – that does stinf. how weird. well, at least you’ll know for next time. Compromise is always good, too.

    Tammy – You’re smart

    bon-bon-bun – best part is it’s easy.

    Craig – you’re right. I was in a hurry and doubled the directions from one of my other recipes and didn’t do the conversion.
    I’ll fix it.

  41. You know, Bakerella, I just love it how you say it straight from the beginning… we are going to cave somewhere in ’09, so why not cave right into these!?! Thanks for the soft and chocolaty chewy cushion!

  42. I knew I didn’t make any resolutions for a reason! I am so glad we get Betty in Australia too! Thanks for the great idea! :)

  43. Thanks, Betty & Bakerella! Your photos make them look even more luscious….yum…yum.

  44. I am from South Africa and we don’t get that box mix. Do you have a good chocolate brownie recipe from scratch that you are willing to share? My email address is:

    Thanks – I sooo enjoy reading your blog.

  45. oh my word! I am making these!

  46. Delish + naughty. x

  47. I think I just licked my laptop screen! Can’t wait to try those!

  48. ohmygod yum!
    can’t wait to make these!

  49. OMG. those look amazing and I cannot wait to make these next weekend!!!

  50. I just knew when I saw the first picture I never should have scrolled down…but I did. I could smell the brownies and taste the ganache. I even gulped at the site of it. Then I started chanting in my head “first on the lips, forever on the hips”. Let me tell ya, its not really working. Btw, great job on the basketweave, I just finished that class and i’m now learning to do tiered cakes and fondant. I’m having a bit of trouble making MMF (marshmallow fondant) though.

  51. You, well you are just evil.


    Boss O x

  52. That Looks SO good!

  53. Brilliant- can’t wait to try this!!!

  54. Ummm Yummmm

  55. :0!!! This is the perfect combination for me! Chocolate on Chocolate. Looooove IT!
    Dang It! There goes another diet! LOL

  56. I think I am going to go into a diabetic coma just looking at those!

  57. shut up! i need these! now!

  58. Okay, I’m sure everyone else has said the same thing….but thanks for ruining my diet! These look sooooooo yummy. I’m drooling all over my laptop now. Wonder if a rice cake will take the edge off this newly born chocolate obsession???!! Probably not…

  59. That was awfully nice of Betty! Looks delicious!

  60. OH MY GOSH! Those look deeeeeeeee-lish!

  61. Oh wow! This looks amazing. Must try them very soon. :) Thanks for another great recipe!

  62. Wow those look just too good for words!

  63. I’m salivating!

  64. Those look sinfully delicious! I’m going to HAVE to make them!

  65. Ohhhh……YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM….I can taste it now…..

  66. this may be a silly question, but do you make the brownies thicker, or not? (adding an extra egg, I mean) I usually make the brownies not thick, but was wondering which method you chose? Thanks – love your site!

  67. WOW! A cookie and brownie in one bite. My kids would go crazy over these! TFS

  68. Those look fabulous. I’m going to have to try them….off to the store!!!

  69. That is SO mean! I want these delicious looking (I can almost taste them through my computer!)Brownies RIGHT NOW!!!! YUM! I am for sure making these this week. THANKS!!!!

  70. I made these on New Year’s Eve…so, so, so good! And easy. And addicting.

    Make sure there are people to share with when you make them.

  71. Those look so incredibly scrummy… I may just have to try them! And you know, I can eat these AND stick to my resolutions! Everything in moderation!

  72. You can sure turn a frown upside down! I feel like I have died and gone to chocolate heaven and you are the angel.
    Thanks Bakerella you truly are the very best.

  73. You are an evil woman posting all those close up pictures! I drooled all over my keyboard.

  74. this makes absoluetly no sense! these look soooo sinful. are they too rich tho?

  75. I wonder how many Weight Watchers ‘points’ one of these deadly bites might be… maybe 20 points? Hmm. Might be worth it anyway. hee hee

  76. Oh…my…goodness!!! One of those ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ kind of things!!! Lord knows I’ve eaten enough brownies and chocolate chip cookies…must’ve never eaten them together before! :)

  77. These look evil. Evil, but delicious… Thanks for the recipe.

  78. Two great mixes, one great brownie… who knew? I bet these will be made time and time again by lots of households… just the perfect brownie!

  79. Betty Crocker makes a box of Hershey’s Cookie Brownie Bars – you don’t have to buy the cookie dough separately! Sadly I know this because the box of evil spotted me at the grocery store last week…

  80. Oh yeah…what a great combination.. brownies and cookies. Thanks Bakerella and thanks Betty! You are my hero!

  81. Wow! I think I just went up a jean size just looking at those heavenly things.
    Bakerella your photography is always so great, love the pictures.

  82. WHO-WEE! These sure do look good! WOW!

  83. Are you serious? That’s just wrong! Talk about “gilding a lily?” Yum!!!

  84. My thighs grew an inch while I was looking at the pictures!

  85. holy god. those look so good. i want one now!

  86. Those look so delish!
    I’m going to have to give that a try!

  87. ***QUESTION***
    Bakerella… i have 2 questions… 1. how on earth do u cut perfect brownie squares? what do u use??
    2. how can i know brownies are done, im scared they´ll come out too dry or undone…
    thankyou so much

  88. Will Betty send you free stuff for blogging about her recipes? These mixes will certainly be on my grocery list!

  89. Oh dear, now I’m craving those, they look delicious!

  90. My children will freak about these! 2 of their favorite things rolled up in one. I think a 1/2 batch with cream cheese frosting would be awesome! I love cookies and cream cheese, I mean cream cheese, plain bagel spread. So this would be awesome!

  91. Ooh, I want one right now.

  92. yummy,they look divine!

  93. oh man those look so good. Im famished right now from a skipped lunch. It’s a good thing I have four wild things here that a trip to the store scares me more than the desire to consume those bad boys… this is making my list of must make recipes though!

  94. I would definitely eat those, and I’m more of a cookie eater than a brownie eater.


  95. wow, these look so good and deadly!

  96. can you just send me one…cause if I make these, there’s a good chance I’ll eat them ALL!

  97. Lord help me – I gained 5 lbs just reading this post! I can’t wait to make these!! Thanks for sharing!

  98. Augh! My resolution is to stick closer to my gluten-free diet. This post? Didn’t help that so much!

    Hrm. I bet I can do a GF version of this…
