Cookie Dough Brownies
Two doughs converged in a yellow kitchen.......
This is the brownie recipe that I made last week for Carrie's shower. I came across it at Bakerella and made a few slight changes. It consists of 2 mixes and a bit of chocolate ganache. Easiest! Recipe! Ever!
You need a Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix and a brownie mix that is for a 13 x 9 pan. I like the Betty Crocker Triple Chunk mix.
Make the batter for both mixes according to package directions in separate bowls. Use the 2 egg version for the brownies.
Grease the 13 x 9 pan. Spread the brownie mix into the pan. Then dab the cookie dough over top in big spoonfuls. Bake at 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for about an hour.
To make the ganache: Heat 3/4 cup of heavy cream and 4 Tablespoons butter until the butter melts and the cream just starts to have bubbles on the edge. Do not boil. Put one package of semi sweet chocolate chips into a bowl and pour the hot cream over it. Let it set for several minutes until the chocolate melts. Stir together until smooth.
Pour the ganache over the brownies and spread evenly. Put into the refrigerator until the ganache is firm before cutting.
These brownies taste so yummy no one will look down on you for using a mix to make them! Beyond yummy!
