Cookie Dough Brownies

My husband requests chocolate chip cookies for dessert about 95% of the time.  I, on the other hand, think there are just way too many good desserts out there to stick with the same one all of the time.  Don't get me wrong I love myself a chocolate chip cookie, but come on you gotta switch it up.  I made these brownies with the hopes of pleasing his chocolate chip cookie craving and my desire to try out a new dessert.  These were the perfect combination.  This cookie dough frosting is Amazing.  If you like cookie dough you are going to love this frosting.  It tastes just like cookie
dough, except there are no eggs so it is perfectly acceptable to eat it by the spoonful or better yet spread it on top of these thick fudgey brownies.

Cookie Dough Brownies
Brownie Batter
1 Cup Butter, melted
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
 1/3 Cup Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Cups Flour
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In your mixer add the butter and sugars.  Mix until completely combined.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and stir until fully incorporated.  Spread the batter in a greased 9x13 inch pan.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with just a few crumbs.  Cool completely before frosting.  Enjoy!
Cookie Dough Frosting
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 and 1/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
5 Tablespoons Milk
1 Cup Chocolate Chips(mini or regular)
Cream together the butter and sugar.  Add the vanilla and mix well.  Add the flour and salt stir until combined.  Stir in the milk and beat until the frosting is fluffy.  Gently stir in the chocolate chips.  Spread on cooled brownies and frost.  Enjoy!

Brownie recipe is my own and the Cookie Dough Frosting is adapted from sallysbakingaddiction.

The frosting is amazing but the brownies came out on the little brown size. Does the type of brown sugar make a difference? I followed the recipe exactly as written.

Darlene A said...

Light brown side

Tanna said...

Thanks Darlene, I'm so glad you tried them. I use light brown sugar when making them and I have used a few different brands before(I usually just buy what's on sale.) So I don't think it should make a difference.

Think I might try to use a mix for the brownie part since I have that on hand after the grandkids came to visit. Will definately try the cookie dough frosting..sounds yummy!

Nicole M. Hutchison said...

I love brownies. I love cookie dough. This is my dream come true! I'm making these little darlings very, very soon. Thanks for sharing!

Megan Lantz said...

These were not good. They look nothing like the picture and I followed the directions to a T. The frosting was not sweet enough. The brownies weren't "fudgy" at all. I agree with the person who commented above...they are really light in color. I would not make these again

Erin said...

these sound alright (although I have never heard of adding brown sugar to brownies), until you get to the cookie dough frosting and see flour. not only is raw flour absolutely disgusting it is very unsafe to eat. it carries more of a risk for illness than raw eggs. I think a better option would be almond flour or macadamia nut flour. Regardless, thank you for the inspiration. I will be making my own version maybe with a healthy twist. ;)

I know it's been a long time since the post but, flour is likely as safe to eat raw as most other foods...I would consider it much safer than raw eggs. A quick internet search will yield a number of reports about individuals becoming ill because they consumed PURCHASED cookie dough from the refrigerator section @ the grocer's. Likewise, many other cases are often from consuming flour in ready made products that are intended to be cooked prior to consumption. In most of the information I found, the studies & subsequent reports do not include use of flour in the home kitchen. Food born illness can happen with many things, often the risk can be lowered by kitchen safety.

To Megan, I'd put money on it that you overbaked the brownie part. I baked mine for 30 minutes and ours were dark and fudgy and absolutely delicious, especially after they chilled in the fridge! But... just on the edges, where they were a wee bit overbaked, they were lighter in color.
And to Erin, there are quite a few ingredients that go into things that we eat that are "absolutely disgusting" (a pretty judgemental assessment, actually) when served on their own. Ever sucked on a spoonful of Crisco? I'm going to assume that that would be pretty unappealing as well, but it's in many cake frostings. Can you document your source for your info on the dangers of raw flour. I've not read that.
My family absolutely LOVED these! Thanks!!!

I made a half batch of these today since we only had 2 eggs left and had to eyeball (and over estimated) the cocoa powder but omg so delicious! I have eaten raw cookie dough (yes with eggs) too many times to count and have yet to get sick... But thank you for sharing!!!

I made these yesterday and they were delicious! They came out perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

Johnnie Carrera said...

I made these today and although everyone be liked them they came out cakey and not fudgy. What would make that happen? I want to make them again but with changes.
