From My Kitchen: Cookie Dough Brownies

Sorry to leave you high and dry on the recipe front during my hiatus last week. How about a little chocolate to make up for it? Chocolate fixes everything!

This recipe for Cookie Dough Brownies came out of a Pillsbury Bakeoff winners cookbook. They are amazing! If you've got kids, these make the best bribe. (Oh, c'mon. We all do it!) And since they start with a mix they are easy enough to make that everyone can pitch in.

The cookie dough layer doesn't use any eggs, so there's no food safety concern. They do keep best in the refrigerator, but I like to leave mine on the counter for about 30 minutes or pop them in the microwave for just a couple of seconds to soften everything up before I serve them.

Here's the recipe:

Cookie Dough Brownies
1 (1 lb. 5.5 oz.) packaged fudge brownie mix
1/2 C. water
1/2 C. vegetable oil
1 egg

1/2 C. margarine or butter
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1/4 C. sugar
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. flour

1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp. vegetable oil

Grease bottom of a 9x13 pan. Combine brownie mix, water, oil and egg. Beat 50 strokes by hand until just combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 33-35 minutes. Cool completely.

Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar until fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Add flour. Spread over cooled brownies.

Melt chocolate chips and oil in microwave, stirring frequently until smooth. Spoon over filling and spread to cover.

Store in the refrigerator.

These are rich, so I cut mine a little on the small side. You can always have a second one. I give you permission. Just don't blame me when your shorts no longer fit.
