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!

How to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Ingredients you’ll need for the brownie layer:

  • unsalted butter
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • cocoa powder
  • salt
  • vanilla extract
  • large eggs
  • plain/all-purpose flour

For the cookie dough:

  • unsalted butter
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • milk
  • vanilla extract
  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • chocolate chips

For the chocolate layer:

  • unsalted butter
  • dark chocolate: you can use milk, or semi-sweet.

To make these brownies, 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.

Pour the batter into an 8×8″ baking pan lined with aluminium foil, and spread out evenly.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the centre is no longer jiggly and 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, 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.

If you’re worried about consuming raw flour, spread the flour out onto a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes.

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

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 bars, and enjoy!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
