 Who else is a big fan of cookie dough? I absolutely love it. So today I bring you Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies! The bottom layer is a deliciously thick and fudgy brownie, the middle layer is a creamy cookie dough stuffed full of chocolate chips, and the top layer is creamy dark chocolate that is melted with butter to prevent cracking when cut.

This is my favourite brownie recipe because they are thick, chewy, and very fudgy. Just the way I like them! I’m not a fan of cakey brownies, so these are just perfect. They also contain the right amount of cocoa powder to make them scrumptiously chocolatey without being too rich.

 The cookie dough centre is deliciously creamy and fudgy, and stuffed full of chocolate chips. It also contains no eggs, so this cookie dough is perfect if you worry about eating raw eggs!

    For the Brownies
  • 1 and 1/4 sticks (140g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (75g) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain/all-purpose flour
  • For the Cookie Dough
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (150g) caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (130g) chocolate chips
  • For the Chocolate Layer
  • 1/3 cup (75g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (175g) high quality dark chocolate, chopped


    For the Brownies
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line the bottom and sides of an 8x8" baking pan with aluminium foil, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the butter, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Stir in the vanilla extract, then mix in the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one. Fold in the flour until fully incorporated, beating until thick and shiny, about 40 - 50 strokes.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and spread out evenly. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  4. For the Cookie Dough
  5. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the milk and vanilla extract. Add the flour and salt, and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Gently spread the cookie dough over the cooled brownies, and refrigerate whilst preparing the chocolate layer.
  7. For the Chocolate Layer
  8. In the microwave, melt the butter and chocolate together, stirring every 30 seconds. Pour over the cookie dough, and spread out evenly. Refrigerate for 2 - 4 hours (or overnight) until firm. Cut into squares, and enjoy!
  9. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  1. Marsha, you come up with the best dessert ideas! I must raise my hand vigorously to the question of: who likes cookie dough. Hehe. Btw, funny thing: I’m coming out with a cookie dough recipe this week too. Stay tuned. lol. Anyway, I love that you worked some butter into the chocolate layer to avoid cracking. Cracking really does ruin the presentation… Thanks for sharing another share-worthy dessert. Pinning! <3

  2. I really prefer fudgy to cakey brownies too, so I’m excited to try this! There is pretty much nothing better than cookie dough. These look amazing!
