It’s Wednesday, we’re half way there folks! Not that I’m counting…
So, today I have a fun recipe for ya, guaranteed to make any chocolate lover drool. This recipe is my boyfriend’s favorite dessert and sure to please any man. Why, you ask? Well, let’s think about it…imagine, here you are with the desire to make the guy or person in your life a dessert that will leave them drooling and staring at you in utter adoration. So you think to yourself, hmm, what to make? Then you think, well, I know every red blooded american boy loves a good chocolate chip cookie, but any man that loves chocolate will also love an ooey, gooey, fudgy brownie, what to do, which to choose??? Here’s the perfect solution, combine them both! These Cookie Brownies are the best of both worlds, rich, gooey, fudgy brownies combined with crisp, delectable chocolate chip cookies. It doesn’t get better.
I use the nestle toll house recipe, because really, you just can’t go wrong. You could also make this part even easier on yourself and just buy some pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough.
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet choc. chips
METHOD: Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips. set aside.
Fudgy Brownies I use this recipe
In a large bowl, stir together the cocoa and baking soda. Add 1/3 cup vegetable oil and boiling water. Mix until well blended and thickened. Stir in the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup oil. Finally, add the flour, vanilla and salt; mix just until all of the flour is absorbed. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Next, pour brownies into a greased pan and spread evenly. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoon into the dough in rows. Press lightly into the dough so that the cookie dough spoonfuls are mostly under the surface of the brownie batter. This is the finished product before it’s cut up, but it should give you an idea of how to do this:
Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 or until a toothpick inserted one inch from the edge comes out clean.
Then the most important step:
