Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Taylor had a great post that I read today that jogged my memory about a post that I wanted to do myself. Why did I read her post? It only made me want to do more baking!!

I had amazing beginner's luck this week. I was procrastinating from doing my assignments and so decided to try my hand at baking. I'm normally not very good at cooking chocolate related things but this one came out great. I would repost the recipe on my blog but if you go over to the original poster's site here, you get bonus pictures of the tasty treat- and what they're *actually* supposed to look like!

I've been dying to make this for a while now. I made it a little differently to the recipe. I used a slightly smaller tin which means my brownies were a bit bigger and needed cooking for longer. I didn't use vanilla essence either. But guys- FOR REAL- these are the best brownies I've ever tasted- and I've tasted more than a few in my lifetime. This will be my new go-to recipe for brownies, not that I ever make them, simply because I thought I couldn't bake chocolate stuff. Now I can!! I also don't think I used as much cookie dough as the original recipe calls for. And worst of all, I cheated and brought storemade cookie dough. I thought, I've spent enough money on this- it's cheaper to buy the cookie dough than make it from scratch- and honestly, you can't tell.

We gobbled these down at work. We gobbled these down at home. They are super great. I cut them up into small pieces as really, they're so rich you can't eat a big slice. You can however eat several small pieces though. I have done the experiments. You can trust me.

thanks so much for your comment! i imagine it would be super hard to take a break from facebook (just like it would be for blogger!). i don't have a fb, but it looks like i would probably get addicted to it pretty quickly if i did! :)
happy day!

Those look amazing. Awesome job! I am trying to get up the nerve to try some simple chocolate chip cookies. Eep!

Also, ancient history is awesome. I am right there with you. I went to a session for orientation with a classics professor who explained that in her classes they reinact Roman rituals. HOW COOL IS THAT?!

Oh my, these look delicious. And I just love that you experimented for our benefits with multiple smaller pieces to be sure it is the best way to eat them. :)

ohmy. You had me at "chocolate chip cookie dough." I would eat cookie dough on just about anything...but atop a brownie? That sounds absolutely DIVINE! :D

That is surely the most fantastic brownie-related idea ever. I must have some of these brownies in my life. Soon.
