Triple Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownie
Who doesn't love brownies? Who doesn't love cookie dough? I know that in this home both of these are top choice! Oh and why is it that chocolate chip cookie dough might possibly taste better than the actual cookie? I was hoping that these would turn out as good as I had planned. They were! And I really hoping that I had plenty of friends to share them with to get them out of my kitchen. I did! Smooth, rich chocolate chip cookie dough....Fudgy, Chewy Brownies with even more chocolate chips! I hope you love chocolate as much as I do!
And what a perfect recipe to contribute for a Holiday Cookie Swap featuring CHOCOLATE! This is so much fun...My Baking Addiction and Good Life Eats are doing a Holiday Recipe Swap sponsored by Scharffen Berger. Have a good chocolate recipe? You should participate!
TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COOKIE DOUGH BROWNIE
12 oz semisweet chocolate or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cup butter, cut in pieces
2 cups sugar
2 Tbl vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour3/4 cup butter, room temp
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
3 Tbl milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup M&M's
1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tsp shortening
Brownies: Heat oven to 350. Line a 9X13 baking dish with parchment paper or foil and grease.
In a microwaveable bowl, melt the chocolate and butter - in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Continue until melted and smooth, then set side.
In a medium bowl combine eggs, sugar and vanilla. Mix well and then slowly add the chocolate mixture in, stirring consistently. Combine flour, cocoa powder and salt and then fold into the chocolate mixture. Pour into the pan and bake for 35 - 40 minutes.
Cookie Dough: While the brownies are cooling, Let's whip up the cookie dough! In a medium bowl cream butter, sugars, milk and vanilla. Add the flour and mix well. Stir in M&M's and chocolate chips. Wait until the brownies are cooled and then spread over top.
Drizzle: Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 min. Stir in the shortening. Mix well. Drizzle over the top. Refrigerate before cutting. (I refrigerated the brownies, then cut and drizzled chocolate on each individual piece.)
