Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies


1 recipe Cocoa Brownies
1 recipe Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 recipe Homemade Chocolate Frosting

Prepare brownies as directed. Spread in a greased 9 x 9 pan.
Prepare cookies as directed. Drop dough by teaspoonful into brownie batter. Press down gently. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Mix frosting ingredients together, spread over cooled brownies.

Holly's Note:

These are very rich!
I found the original recipe in a Betty Crocker magazine. It called for a boxed brownie mix and a boxed cookie mix. I don't buy boxed mixes because I think my homemade ones are better, so I modified the recipe to use my own.


The first time I made these I used a glaze-type frosting with butter and unsweetened chocolate and powdered sugar. I think they're better with the buttercream-type frosting, and even good without frosting at all. I bake one tray of cookies in addition to the brownies and then just freeze the rest of the dough for later.
