Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies



Ever had trouble choosing between a brownie and cookie? In all honesty, it's pretty difficult to choose between a chewy cookie to a delicious, chocolaty brownie, no? Maybe that's just me. None the less, the two are just so good that I find it hard at times to actually choose one over the other. Thus, instead of having to choose between the two, I did something completely different and made something to resolve the problem. I combined the two! Creating the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie!

The name itself is just screaming sin. But these are so incredibly chewy and decadent that you won't even be thinking about the fact that you are consuming both the chewy cookies and decadent brownies all in one. I cut the brownies in small sizes to help portion control and I couldn't help but aw at how cute and delicious they looked. I wish now that I added a layer of frosting. That would have made these so much better!

These a defiant must try! But, I'll tell you now that you'll need to watch the amount consumed!




Recipe

Brownie Layer

3/4 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
4 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cookie Layer

2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 eggs
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9 in baking pan.

2. For brownie layer, melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and cocoa; stir to blend. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs and vanilla. In a bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda; stir into chocolate mixture and add chocolate chips. Spread into baking pan.

3. For cookie layer, grind oats in a food processor or blinder until fine. In a medium bowl, combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon. In another medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Add the chocolate chips.

4. Take the cookie mixture and add dough by rounded tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie layer. Press down lightly.

5. Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches in comes out almost clean. Cool completely before cutting. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.
