So a few tips.... I personally make the brownies from scratch but if You don't want to, go ahead and buy a box mix but be sure to get the family size box! When you make these you want a 9x13 pan. I use aluminum pans from the dollar store because they bend easy and I can slide this out easily onto a chopping board to cut in these small pieces when I need to bring it to a party instead of trying to cut and lift them out of a metal or glass pan. ok so onto this amazingggggggggg recipe. I want you to come back after you make them and tell me what you think!! OR go to my FB page (noted above) and give us a shout!
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-
COOKIE DOUGH (EGG FREE!):
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 (Crisco is fine) 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. NOW HERE IS where you will use your BOX mix if you chose to do so!! I personally make the brownies first and let them cool BEFORE I even start on the cookie dough part. You want to make the cookie dough, spread onto the cooled (room temp) brownies then pop in the fridge right away.
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.
