Brownie Layer

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup butter {melted}
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk

Cookie Dough Layer

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine {I prefer margarine}
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips {semi-sweet}

Top Layer

  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate frosting


Brownie Layer

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare a 9x9 baking pan by either spraying liberally with nonstick cooking spray or lining it with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl combine the brownie mix, melted butter, eggs and milk. Mix with a hand held mixer or by hand until everything is combined. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared 9x9 pan and spread out into an even layer.

  3. Bake for 37-40 minutes or until the brownie has a shiny layer on the top and a tooth pick inserted near the center comes out nearly clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Cookie Dough Layer

  1. Once the brownies are cooled, combine the butter/margarine, sugars and vanilla in a medium bowl with a hand held {or by hand} until creamy. Add flour and stir until combined. Add chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate chips are evenly distributed.

Assembling the Cookie Dough Brownies

  1. Add the cookie dough to the top of the baked brownies and spread into an even layer. Add the milk chocolate frosting to the top of the cookie dough and spread it out into an even layer. If you want to make a pattern in the top of the brownies, run a knife through the frosting one way and then the other until you have a grid pattern.

  2. When you are ready to cut the brownies you can either cut them in the pan or if you used parchment paper you can lift the entire pan of brownies out of the pan and cut on a cutting board. Store in an air tight container on the counter for up to 4 days or refrigerate for a week. These brownies also freeze well for up to 3 months.
