Cookie Dough Brownies

About a week or so ago I came across this recipe for Cookie Dough Brownies.  The second I saw it I knew I had to make it, I mean brownies and cookie dough how could I not have tried this before!  I found this recipe on Hoot-n-Nanny. I changed mine a bit though.  Everyone in my house absolutely loved these.  They are really rich so definitely not an all the time treat but I'll be making these again!

Cookie Dough Brownies

Brownie Batter:
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 c. sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 c. cocoa powder
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. decaf coffee

Cookie Topping: 
3/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbls. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. chocolate chips

For the Brownies: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides. Press the paper into the corners of the pan and lightly grease the paper with butter.  Melt the 2 sticks of butter in a nonstick saucepan over medium-low heat; do not boil. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Add the sugar, coffee, eggs and vanilla to the saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.  Add the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder and mix until smooth. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out fudgy, 20 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack, then use the parchment paper to lift out the brownies before slicing.  (I prefer cooling mine in the fridge then slicing.) 

Cookie Topping: Cream together the shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Beat in milk.  Add in the flour and mix until combined.  Stir in Chocolate chips. Once brownies have completely cooled spread or press down the cookie dough on top.  Place in refrigerator for several hours to set.

  15. Hi! I found you on Made It On Monday. These look amazing, but for my coffee-hating husband, I was wondering how strong the coffee flavor is? Maybe I should just make them for myself :)

  16. Honestly you can't taste the coffee it enhances the chocolate flavor. You could also totally omit it all together too and the recipe still is awesome. Sometimes I don't use it when I do brownies and no one can really tell the difference.

  17. Oh heavens I think I just gained 5 lbs drooling over these. :)

    Thank you for linking up to Made it on Monday!
