 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!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Yields 16 brownies

Ingredients

For the Brownies

  • 1 and 1/4 sticks unsalted butter 140g, melted
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar 250g
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder 75g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs cold
  • 1/2 cup plain/all-purpose flour 60g

For the Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 115g, softened
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar 150g
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plain flour 60g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips 130g

For the Chocolate Layer

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter 75g
  • 1 cup high quality dark chocolate 175g, chopped

Instructions

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.

For the Cookie Dough

  1. 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.
  2. Gently spread the cookie dough over the cooled brownies, and refrigerate whilst preparing the chocolate layer.

For the Chocolate Layer

  1. 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!
  2. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    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
