Cookie Dough Brownies

I'm sure y'all have seen the pin (on Pinterest, follow me here) for Cookie Dough Brownies, or a layer of brownies with a layer of cookie dough. Well, I probably have it pinned on my Dessert board at least 20 times and a few weeks ago, on a rainy afternoon on my trip to Upstate New York (read all about it here), I decided to make them. After a bit of a set back (we had no cocoa powder in the house somehow), I made them and let me tell y'all, they are amazing! The originial recipe calls for a layer of chocolate on top of the cookie dough, but we decided to forgo that since we didn't have any heavy cream and they still turned out amazing!

 The ingredients:
vanilla extract, eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, butter, sugar, brown sugar, milk, flour, chocolate chips

Part 1: The Brownie Layer

Step 1: Mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl

 Step 2: Beat in the eggs

Step 3: Add flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix

Step 4: Fold in chocolate chips

Step 5: Pour into the prepared pan

Step 6: Bake for 22-26 minutes

Part 2: Cookie Dough Layer

Step 1: Cream butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with a mixer 

Step 2: Add in milk 

Step 3: Add in flour a little bit at a time

Step 4: Stir in chocolate chips with a spoon 

Step 5: Place in the fridge until the brownies are completely cooled

Part 3: Assembly

Step 1: Remove brownies from the oven and let them completely cool

Step 2: Once the brownies are completely cool, spread cookie dough on top and there you have cookie dough brownies!

- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1.5 cups white sugar
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cookie Dough
- 1/2 cup butter, softened

2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in the eggs
3. Add flour, cocoa powder, and salt into the bowl

5. Pour into the prepared pan
6. Bake for about 22-26 or just until done (don't overbake)
7. Remove from the oven and allow to completely cool
