Cookie Dough Brownies

Cookie Dough Brownies have a fudgy layer of brownie, a thick layer of cookie dough, and a chocolate glaze. So thick you might have to eat them with a fork!

It’s finally flip-flop weather in South Carolina! My long lost friend, the sun, is back and that makes me so happy.

And when I’m happy, I want brownies and these aren’t just any ordinary brownies. They are special enough for celebrating the arrival of spring.

Three Delicious Layers

Super thick Cookie Dough Brownies are brownies for cookie dough lovers. On the bottom is a fudgy layer of brownie. To make it easy, I used a box of Ghirardelli Brownie Mix.

Once the brownies are baked, a layer of cookie dough is spread on top. It doesn’t get cooked, but don’t worry. It doesn’t contain eggs. The cookie dough has bunches of mini chocolate chips throughout.

These Cookie Dough Brownies are finished with a layer of chocolate glaze on top. Because you can NEVER have too much chocolate.

Recipe Tips

There is a small chance that raw flour can contain E. Coli. If you have a weakened immune system, it may be best to skip this recipe.

Once the brownies are set, they can be kept at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.

Measure Flour Correctly

When baking, it is so important to measure flour correctly or you risk adding too much flour, resulting in a dry product.

First, fluff the flour up some in the bag or conatiner. Flour tends to get packed down over time.

Use a large spoon to gently scoop the flour and place in a DRY measuring cup. Run the back of a knife over the top of the measuring cup to get rid of excess flour.
