I saw these delectable treats over at Lori's scrumptious blog, Recipe Girl. I fainted when I saw the picture. I thought, 'How genius can anyone be to come up with this?' I adapted the recipe by using a boxed brownie mix (to make my life easier) and slightly changed up the cookie dough batter. They turned out wonderful. They are purely sinful. Have a big, cold glass of milk nearby. These things are rich!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
Makes 18 Brownies
1 box (18 oz) of your favorite Brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker Triple Chunk) (plus the eggs, oil and water the mix calls for)
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons Milk
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, divided 1 teaspoon Shortening
DIRECTIONS: Make brownies according to the package directions, using a 9x9 inch square baking pan. Remove from oven and let them cool completely.
FOR COOKIE DOUGH: Beat the butter, both sugars, vanilla and milk together in a medium bowl. Stir in the flour and 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough evenly over the top of the cooled brownies. Cover and place in refrigerator to chill for atleast 3 hours.
FOR DRIZZLE: Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of shortening together in a small bowl, in the microwave. Once melted, stir and then pour into a small sandwich baggie. Snip off one corner and squeeze chocolate to drizzle over the brownies. Cut into squares and devour!
