It doesn’t matter because my sweet tooth had a craving for chocolate and I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies or brownies. Thanks to Betty Crocker, this recipe is the best of both worlds AND I didn’t even need to make a hard choice – ha! Oh and why stop there with chocolate? To make these even more decadent, I made a homemade chocolate ganache to top the brownies – check out my recipe below!
Now truthfully, my family and I didn’t eat the whole pan in one sitting. I cut a few small portions for us to enjoy and froze the rest. Next time we have a craving for chocolate chip cookie dough brownies, it is as easy as pulling a couple from our freezer.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
1 box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix (Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box)
1 pouch Betty Crocker® chocolate chip cookie mix (1/2 cup butter or margarine and 1 egg called for on cookie mix pouch)
Preheat oven to 350° (325º for dark or nonstick pan) and grease a 9″ x 14″ pan.
Make brownie mix according to the directions on the box and spread in the bottom of the pan.
Make cookie dough according to the directions on the pouch and drop heaping tablespoonful of dough into the brownies mix. Press lightly to even out.
Bake 40-45 minutes until a inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before topping the brownies.
…and if these brownies are not decadent enough, top with Chocolate Ganache once cooled.
1 – 10 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
6 Tbsp butter
In a double boiler, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage. Add the bag of chocolate morsels and stir to combine until melted and luscious.
Pour ganache over brownies and let set before cutting.
