We headed over to our friend’s new condo, but the plans were last minute, and I wanted to bring something (I’m the only girl, so usually snacks aren’t discouraged…).  Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand for this, so you’ll have to pardon the quick shot I took before I dug into my own piece.  These were good, but very rich, so I would recommend cutting *slightly* smaller bars for your own consumption. 😉

Cookie Dough Topped Brownies

Recipe found at Lovin’ from the Oven


  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 8″x8″ pan.

In a saucepan over low heat or in the microwave on 50% power, melt the butter.   Off the heat, add sugar, vanilla, and eggs to the melted butter and stir to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and salt.  Incorporate well into the melted butter mixture.  Transfer batter to the baking pan, and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Cookie Dough Topping:

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 1/2 tbsps. milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips

Beat together butter, sugars, milk and flour (start on low to avoid flour all over your kitchen).  On low speed, stir in mini chocolate chips.

To assemble, spread the cookie dough over completely cooled brownies.  Chill the brownies until the cookie dough is firm.  Cut into bars.
