Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

*If you are visiting this post for the first time, you may wish to visit my “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies Take Two” post- a more recent post where I share (what I think is) a better version of these brownies! Β These are good too- but I took the comments suggested in this post and created a new recipe based on feedback.

Okay, Cookie Dough Lovers. I gave you those Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles a few weeks ago, and now I’m giving you Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies! The raw dough is egg-free, of course. Cookie dough is definitely my nemesis. I love the stuff. I try not to love it, but I love it anyways. Whatever the cookie, whatever the dough… it’s usually some pretty good stuff to nibble. Yeah, I know it has raw egg in it. Yeah, I know that some people are grossed out by it and all. But my Momma raised me right- to sample raw cookie dough (and I continue to live to tell about it). Good thing I’m a runner.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies #recipe -

I first saw these in a bakery in Maine a few years back. They were a fudgy brownie with a thick layer of cookie dough stacked on top. I inquired about the egg thing, and the baker informed me that they just make the cookie dough without any egg in it. Then it’s completely safe for weary-raw-dough-eaters to eat. I’ve had these in my head for three years now, and I’ve finally decided to give them a go.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies #recipe -

I’d say I had some major success with this recipe. The brownie part is extra fudgy, and I used mini- chocolate chips so as not to overwhelm the dough. And I kicked it all up a notch by adding a chocolate drizzle on top. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I’m a drizzler.

These chocolate chip cookie dough brownies are easiest to eat when placed in little cupcake wrappers. Just stick a fork in them and they’re a take-and-go dessert. Keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them. I brought them to my son’s school for a teacher appreciation luncheon last week, and the platter was completely clear when I returned to pick up. I think they liked them πŸ™‚

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup salted butter, melted
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup mini- chocolate chips

**See Tips Below...**
3/4 cup salted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3 Tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chips + 1 teaspoon shortening for drizzle, optional


1. Prepare the brownies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick spray. In a medium glass bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave in short bursts of 30 seconds; stir after each burst and remove from microwave when melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk those in too. Mix in melted chocolate. Whisk in the flour and mix just until combined (don't over-mix). Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 25 to 35 minutes. Watch closely and remove from oven when toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

2. Prepare the cookie dough: In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix in milk and vanilla. Mix in flour just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Spread cookie dough over the cooled brownies. Refrigerate until the dough is quite firm. It's okay to speed up the process and place it in the freezer too. The firmer the dough, the easier it will be to cut into neat squares. Use a sharp knife to cut the brownies. You may need to wipe the knife off with a paper towel in between cuts since the fudgy brownies and cookie dough will tend to stick to the knife a bit. These brownies are best to serve placed inside cupcake papers and served with a fork.

4. If you'd like to add chocolate drizzle on top, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon of shortening in the microwave; stir until smooth. Scoop the melted chocolate into a zip baggie and snip off the corner. Squeeze the bag to drizzle the chocolate on top of each brownie. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top, if desired.


*You'll find that the cookie dough layer is quite sweet. If you'd like a thin layer of cookie dough, prepare the recipe as directed above. If you'd like a thicker layer of dough as pictured, use these ingredients for the dough instead of what is listed above:
1 cup salted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups miniature chocolate chips

    hi, quick Q as i have the brownie in thew oven.
    the cookie dough is made with flour but not cooked at all.
    is that ok?

      yes, these are cookie “dough” brownies, so no cooking on the dough part.

    Hi and thank you for your reply.
    i read meanwhile some internet posts about eating uncooked flour and i got both positive and negative answers.
    i decided to go with your version but with just 5 min of oven baking for the both layers after the cookie dough was added:). it made me feel safer.
    anyway, it smells very nice and i’m leaving it out in the cold now for a few hours.
    I hope mine will look almost as delicious as yours.
    thank you Lori for the recipe

    I made these last night after finding them via Pinterest. THEY ARE AMAZING! I had 1 and sent the rest with my husband to work (and it was a huge hit today). I subbed shortening for margarine/butter and it totally came out fine. I did have to add another tbsp of milk to the cookie dough which I knew I was going to have to do since I was using shortening. I also did a chocolate and white chocolate drizzle over the top using Ghirardeli syrups. Great recipe!!! I’m sure I’ll be making these again!

    I made these the other night, and while I loved the idea, in practice things didn’t turn out for me! I admit, this is one of the first times I have made brownies from scratch, and that must have been my downfall. Any suggestions? It was definitely the brownie part of the mixture that did not turn out right at all. I left the (unsalted) butter out and everything, so I’m really confused as to what went wrong!

    • postedJan 13, 2012 5:49 AM

      I’m not sure… it’s tough to pinpoint baking problems when you’re not right in there and experiencing it yourself. Sorry you had trouble…

  7. postedJan 17, 2012 4:07 AM

    Let me just start by saying THESE ARE AMAZING! I too ran into some problems my first go around; my brownies required and extra 25 minutes to cook (50 min total) and were cake-like and my cookie dough was a little off. BUT with any recipe you have to make it your own, and I may have mis-calculated something… BUT on my second go around I did box brownies (fyi I have never had any luck with homemade brownies before, why I thought it would different is beyond me lol)…and they of course came out. With my cookie dough; once I followed my recipe all the way through, I then added a little powder sugar, which solved the super-grainy texture and took care of the taste (in my case the colder the cookie dough the sweeter it gets; so when it’s warm it does taste kinda bland)…I do suggest trying these out to everyone, but everyone’s taste buds are different, everyone’s oven’s cook different, and when your measuring ingredients you may not pack etc…. BUT I promise if you play with it, it will be well worth the time! Thanks for the RECIPE!!

      It would be a lot of extra effort to pat them into each one… an alternative would be to just cut them and serve them placed on cupcake liners with a fork stuck on top. I’ve done that with other sorts of bars.

    Just made these. My brownie layer turned out Cakey. I confess I am a novice baker, but I followed the directions. What did I do wrong?

    • postedFeb 4, 2012 6:12 AM

      Likely a result of over-mixing the batter- generating too many air bubbles into the batter and resulting in a lighter texture. I’ve edited the recipe to include a lighter mixing method.

  13. postedFeb 4, 2012 7:35 AM

    Yep! I had that Kitchenaid going to town whipping in all that air. Like I said I am a novice. I will try again because the flavor was great, just the wrong texture. Thanks so much for your help. I’ve learned my one new thing for the day!

    I made these tonite and like some of the previous comments note the brownie part was just not very didn’t taste chocolatey, it was a weird texture and very bland. I went back and triple checked that I didn’t leave something out but I did everything exactly like the recipe says. The cookie dough layer was amazing though so maybe I’ll follow others and make these again with a box of ghiradelli brownies as the base.

    I made these last night for a superbowl party I’m going to today and, of course, I couldn’t help sampling one last night after they were done. The cookie dough is really awesome (I followed exactly + added 1/4 t. salt) and the brownies were a bit cakey (followed the directions exactly), which wasn’t a bad thing, just not what I was expecting. Do you think I over-mixed my batter?

    Anyway, thank you so much for this recipe! You’re awesome.

    I tried the brownie recipe and am an experienced baker. It turned out cakey and not very chocolately as others have commented. I made sure to fold in flour and not overmix. I was sure I missed an addition of cocoa or something. But after checking the recipe several times, I confirmed I did not. Maybe it is humidity or something. Of course my family still ate it up. The cookie part was great. I will try again and if I get the same result, I will go back to my old recipe.

      Did you use a hand mixer, or did you use the revised instructions with the melted butter and use a whisk instead?

    I’m a college student without a lot of kitchen resources, so I used brownie mix from a box and baked them in a 9×9 pan. I made a full recipe of the cookie dough topping and it was a perfect thickness in the 9×9 pan! Since some of the comments said the cookie dough tasted grainy, I melted the butter in the microwave, added the sugars, and microwaved for another 20 seconds to dissolve the sugars a little bit to give the dough a smoother texture. Also, I added half of a package of instant vanilla pudding, which is one of the ingredients of my favorite chocolate chip cookies. They turned out great! Thanks for this fabulous recipe!

    I am a terrible maker of brownies from scratch so I am going to try this with boxed brownies but adding chocolate chips like you suggested to add some fudginess. But do you think I can still use a 9 x 13 pan or should I go smaller like someone else did with the boxed brownie? Or if I want the larger pan do I need to make 2 boxes? Just wasn’t sure how much mix yours made compared to a box. Thanks and can’t wait to try this for my husband’s birthday this weekend!

    • postedFeb 14, 2012 3:51 PM

      I guess I’d use one of those family-sized brownie mixes if you want to go w/ 9×13-inch. Depends what the box calls for…

    I read a lot of the comments and made some changes. To remedy the grainy texture of the cookie dough, I used 1 C. powdered sugar instead of 3/4 C. white sugar. It worked like a charm and tastes delicious with the perfect texture. I used a little fat free half and half instead of milk and used 1/2 the chocolate chips so it would be a little less sweet. I used 3 T. dark baking cocoa and 1 T. oil in place of each square of chocolate because that is what I have on hand. I actually like that taste better so I normally sub in most recipes. All in all….awesome!

    I made the brownies with just a box version, because i didnt have the time to make those by scratch too and didnt have the ingriedents. But nonetheless they came out delicious!
    The cookie dough i found needed a little extra milk but not much πŸ™‚ I didnt measure the chocolate chips, i just dumped them in until it looked like enough πŸ˜‰

    • postedApr 20, 2012 10:19 AM

      Some eggless cookie dough is made with sweetened condensed milk, which accounts for that extra sweetness. I don’t think this one tastes like that… just like regular cookie dough.

  43. postedApr 20, 2012 6:22 PM

    I agree with some of the comments about the cookie dough being a little grainy and too sweet. Since a normal cookie dough recipe has salt in it, I decided to try adding salt and just a quarter cup more flour. It really changed the taste of cookie dough! It took the some of the grainy texture away and the salt balanced the sweetness. I also think the brownie was a little too cakey and the proportions were off. But all in all, an awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing this Lori πŸ™‚

    well thanks for this recipe. I made it last week. Super unhealthy and a ton of butter (good thing we had butter from Costco on hand, ha!) but it was a HUGE hit with my husband! Too much for us though so I put a bunch in the freezer for later and I didn’t know how long it would last. he still likes it warmed up in the microwave. One of his new favourite desserts! He eats it with ice cream too. Oh I did use only 1 c. of mini choc. chips for the cookie dough – that seemed plenty.

    While this is a great concept, the composition is completely underwhelming. I am an experienced baker and was really dissapointed in the brownie part. Not very chocolately, took 15 minutes longer to finish baking than stated, and didn’t taste like a brownie at all – more like a sweet, slightly chocolate baked egg. The flour to egg ratio is off. Also, as other posters commented, the cookie dough is not nearly as thick as pictured, if you use the recommended size pan. I know you want the pictures to be enticing, but you should post pics of the real deal or else change the recipe amounts to get what is shown.

    Next time, I will use my own homemade brownie recipe and top with the cookie dough part of this recipe. Now I’m stuck with a pan of brownies that no one in my house will eat.

    • postedMay 7, 2012 6:28 AM

      Doesn’t taste like brownie at all? That’s strange. They are not meant to be eaten alone- the topping of the cookie dough adds more than enough sweetness to pair with them. You’d need to add a handful of chocolate chips to the brownie batter if you wanted to serve them up as brownies. I added alternate amounts for the cookie dough if you’d like a thicker layer. It’s quite sweet, so a thinner layer is actually preferred by most people.

  52. postedMay 8, 2012 6:22 PM

    Well, i tried these bad boys out and thought they were very bland. Sure they look awesome and the combo sounds amazing, but I was disappointed in the complete lack of flavor. The brownie portion had a strange taste to it as well. If anyone is making these hoping they will taste like toll house cookie dough on top of brownies made from the box, think again. I do like the mini chip idea and the concept as a whole, but will be using different recipe next time. The cookie dough did not stick to the brownie portion and the brownie was fudgy. And yes, I followed the instructions to the ‘t’.

    • postedMay 8, 2012 7:00 PM

      I’m sorry you had so many problems! I make these all the time, and they’re always a big hit for me. I had “mini chips added to the brownie batter” in the recipe tips, but I went ahead and just added it to the recipe. They’re better that way if you like things chocolatey.

  53. postedMay 8, 2012 6:32 PM

    PS. I noticed people raving about the cookie dough. I don’t get it. I love cookie dough and this cookie dough was nothing like the cookie dough I enjoy in ice cream or before I make cookies. I don’t like contradicting anyone, but before you go and make a huge pan of these with tons of ingredients, try a half batch. I also noticed a lot of people saying they liked them after not even following the recipe (ie using a boxed brownie mix). Come on people.

    These are awesome! I use a brownie recipe from Betty Crocker, circa 1974, which is made in a saucepan and mixed by hand. These are always chewey and chocoloty. Maybe that is because you don’t get so much air in the batter.

    Ok I went to northern calif with my best friend. His family has been making these forever. they cut them small about 3/4 of an inch square. then store them in the freezer. every time you walk past the freezer another one bites the dust. So easy to make also.

    You do not cook the cookie dough?

    • postedSep 10, 2012 9:50 PM

      Nope! It’s an egg-free cookie dough. Cooking it won’t work.

    What about the flour in it?

    • postedSep 10, 2012 9:54 PM

      It’s just cookie dough… like when you taste the dough when you’re baking cookies? yes, there is flour in there too.

    I found this recipe on pinterest a couple months ago and made it. My husband LOVES it. My only problem now is keeping him away from the dough while the brownie is baking.

    I’ve just made these now to take to my boyfriend’s dad’s 60th birthday party, and i’m so, so, so disappointed! The brownie hasn’t come out like brownie’s should do AT ALL, it’s cake. I can’t believe it!!!!! πŸ™

      I don’t know… I’ve been eating cookie dough since I was a kid, so I would assume it’s pretty rare.

    Mixed review on these, but overall, amazing concept with pretty good results! I have to say, the brownie part may have been the best brownie ive ever had. It was so moist and chocolaty. However, I found the cookie dough to be too sweet for me, so i will use another recipe for that..but the brownie really was delicious.

    I just wanted to tell you that these are soooo good! My friend made them for me a few months ago and I just made them for the first time this past week. I thought you might be interested to know that we added mini M&M’s to the recipe! They add a bit of a crunch to them that make them even more delectable! Just one more way to make them even more chocolaty! πŸ™‚

    Hello I’ve been a chef for ten years and I made these with a little bit of a change up. (No chocolate chips. I used baker’s chocolate instead. Plus the topping was vanilla frosting + Oreos. No granulated sugar use cane sugar and instead of brown sugar use dark brown sugar). Try it out and tell me what you think.

    Here’s the recipe below:

    4 ounces unsweetened baker’s chocolate, finely chopped
    1 cup sweet cream salted butter, melted
    2 cups light brown sugar, packed
    4 large eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup all-purpose flour

    **See Tips Below…**
    3/4 cup sweet cream salted butter, at room temperature
    3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
    3/4 cup granulated cane sugar
    3 Tablespoons whole organic milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups chopped semi-sweet baker’s chocolate

    3/4 a can of vanilla frosting
    1 row of Oreos

    1. Prepare the brownies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch pan with nonstick spray. In a medium glass bowl, melt unsweetened baker’s chocolate in the microwave in short bursts of 30 seconds; stir after each burst and remove from microwave when melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sweet cream butter and dark brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk those in too. Mix in melted unsweetened baker’s chocolate. Whisk in the flour and mix just until combined (don’t over-mix). Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 25 to 35 minutes. Watch closely and remove from oven when toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

    2. Prepare the cookie dough: In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine sweet cream butter, dark brown sugar and cane sugar. Mix in organic milk and vanilla. Mix in flour just until combined. Stir in semi-sweet baker’s chocolate chopped into “chips”.

    3. Let the brownies cool on the counter for about 15 minutes. Then place them in the fridge to cool for another 15 minutes. Touch the pan to make sure its cool enough then spread the room temperature cookie dough over the cooled brownies. Refrigerate until the dough is quite firm. Flip the pan upside-down with your palm in the middle. It should come right out like a cake would in the rectangle form. Put the cake on top of the upside down pan and cut it straight in half vertically (this will be your guide). Push the two halves together and front the entire “cake” like object with vanilla frosting on top of the cookie dough part. Use a sharp knife to find your guide again and drag it down making two separate pieces. Then put the row of Oreos in a bowl and crunch them up with a metal spoon or knife if you are daring (be careful!). Then spread the crushed Oreos (don’t crush them too small you want good bite sized pieces) over the vanilla frosting on top. Now you can cut the “cake” into small wedges as you serve. You may need to wipe the knife off with a paper towel in between cuts since the fudgy brownies and cookie dough will tend to stick to the knife a bit. These brownies are best to serve placed inside cupcake papers and served with a fork. Also, go great with a cup of organic whole milk. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy and tell me what you think. I felt like the brownies might have been a little dry so you can always put semi-sweet chocolate chips in with the brownie mix in order to avoid this issue, but to be honest its nothing a tall glass of milk can cure. lol Plus the vanilla frosting kind of balances it out. Have fun if you have any questions feel free to post them.

    I have made these twice now and I must say that I LOVE them! I would recommend the brownie recipe with them because they compliment the flavor of the cookie dough.
    I typically bake ALL brownie recipes less than recommended, but at only 23 minutes these were still VERY fudgy and almost batter like, but able to be cut. So it’d be safe to say the full 25 minutes would be perfect.

    For a safer version of the recipe with eggs, use egg beaters. I eat raw dough all the time made with egg beaters.

    This sounds so delicious. My husband posted it on Facebook where I found it. Since we are both diabetic I will have to cut the sugar with Splenda or other diabetic sweetener. My family has always loved raw cookie dough, and none of us have ever gotten ill.

    Spray your knife with non-stick cooking spray and it will help keep it clean. Just a light mist every couple cuts should do.

    love the recipe. it was ppeerrrrfect for my grandmothers funeral. everyone loved them and i know that grandma would too. i would suggest a couple more TABLESPOONS of shortening (where i am from it is called Lard). Best served with a shot of rum and a glass of whiskey (to help it go down). I make it at least twice a week for my family of three. The children enjoy it so much! (great substitute for any meal) Thanks for the great idea.

    can you cook the cookie-dough in to cookies? i think it might b neat to cook the dough and brownies together…make it brownie on the bottom then cookie over it then when cooked and cooled you can flip it over to have easy removal if you use the baking sheets over the pan.

    • postedMay 18, 2014 10:03 AM

      No, the cookie dough does not have the right ingredients in it for baking into an actual cookie texture.

    I made these for my husband for his birthday to take to work since he wanted cookies and brownies. I used both peanut butter and chocolate chips for the cookie dough and then used crushed reese’s instead of chocolate chips for the topping. His work loved them…I didn’t get to try any though πŸ™
