Cookie Dough Brownies

A while ago I made these wonderful sounding chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes...but yikes all that butter, and the brown sugar made me think of these as brown sugar cakes! We ate some anyways, and the rest went to the neighborhood kids.

Anyways I wasn't as crazy about them like I thought I'd be, and I had so many cookie dough balls leftover, I kept them frozen for later use. Since there's no egg in them, they're OK to eat like that. You may want to half the recipe, or not. So I decided that I'd use them in some brownies! Yeah, those came out great! I used a boxed recipe (for an 8x8 pan) I was reviewing and just added the cookie dough balls on top.

Cookie Dough Balls as seen here
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips

To make the cookie dough, combine the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 mins. Beat in milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a 1.5 tbsp scoop, shape the dough into balls or tubes. Freeze on a parchment lined baking sheet overnight. (These make a good 3 dozen!)

Make an 8x8 pan (or 9x13) of brownie batter, add the cookie dough balls to the top and bake according to brownie directions.

I love brownies and my hubby loves cookie dough so this one sounds like a winner here!

Yeah... I don't think I'd actually get around to the part where you put the cookie dough balls on the brownies. I'd wind up popping them all into my mouth first.

Oh my Lord! My daughter is sitting beside me while I look at this and she is like, " have to make those! "

These are so much fun!!! I'm sure my hubby will be thrilled with these -- he adores cookie dough AND chocolate. Though he hates to admit it :) What a great idea.

I have done the cupcakes with cookie dough and candy bars but never brownies with cookie dough. When my hubby and I first met, everytime we got together with his family I brought a new version of "brownies" it was fun, rocky road were good, turtle was my fav but these could beat then all. Yummr
