Cookie Dough Brownies

This recipe for Cookie Dough Brownies is so rich and decadent that it’s almost sinfully bad. But not quite. Unless you devour the whole pan.

Cookie Dough Brownies

I’ve been making this recipe for years and I’ve got to say – I think it’s my favorite brownie recipe. There’s three layers –  brownies, cookie dough (with no egg, so it’s safe to eat), and finally melted chocolate on top. If I’m in a hurry, I use a box mix of brownies to speed the process along. Whenever I take these to a potluck or friend’s house, I get many compliments and recipe requests.

Cookie Dough BrowniesI had to skip all my usual step photos today, as it came down to that or no brownies. Naturally, I picked the brownies with less photos. I figured you would understand. 😉

  5. You make the most amazing looking goodies!.. I want to try so many of them but I’m on insulin and have to really watch my sugar do you think your recipes would hold up with a sugar substitute?

    • I’d say it’s worth a try ,Melanie. I’ve never done it, but I’m sure you could look it up to see if there’s any tips or recommendations for substituting sugar.
      And thank you!
