Deliciously fudgy cookie dough brownies with a chocolate chip brownie, chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate ganache! 

So I do know its January and many individuals are considering more healthy and wanting to begin a bit extra afresh… and I agree, so do I! Nevertheless, these beauties?! They couldn’t wait. These cookie dough brownies are simply on a complete new stage and wanted posting as quickly as attainable! Simply have a look at them! 


I like my brownie recipes, as you all know. A combination of darkish chocolate, butter, sugar, flour, eggs and cocoa powder makes the dreamiest of dreamy brownies and I cannot argue with anybody about this. 

Six components can create such thick and fudge brownies they usually’re all easy components

  • Chocolate – I at all times use 70%+ cocoa content material chocolate when making my brownies because it creates the very best bake by far – don’t fear, the brownies don’t style ‘darkish’ – persist with it! 
  • Butter – I take advantage of unsalted butter, however all baking spreads work effectively for a brownie combination 
  • Flour – In brownies, you solely ever need to use plain flour – self elevating flour will create a cake like texture which you don’t need. 
  • Cocoa powder – I discover the cocoa powder will increase how chocolatey the brownies are and I like it. I take advantage of sturdy cocoa powder (100%!) however any cocoa powder works effectively.
  • Eggs – I at all times used medium eggs in baking today, however in case you wished to make use of massive you need to use 3 massive eggs as a substitute. 
  • Sugar – I swap between utilizing caster sugar and light-weight brown tender sugar in my brownies because it depends upon what temper I’m in, and even what I’ve within the cabinet – however each work effectively. 


For the cookie dough, it’s fairly easy – because it’s a no bake cookie dough! Nevertheless, for security – you do need to bake the flour individually earlier than utilizing. You basically must kill off any micro organism within the uncooked flour earlier than utilizing within the cookie dough. 

The cookie dough consists of: 

  • Butter – For this you’ll be able to simply get away with precise butter at room temperature, or perhaps a baking unfold 
  • Sugar – I used mild brown sugar as I used it within the brownie combine, but additionally I like the flavour and color it brings to the uncooked cookie dough
  • Flour – plain flour is greatest – and to bake it off unfold it onto a tray and bake at 160ºfan for five minutes after which cool earlier than utilizing. 
  • Vanilla – Scrumptious flavour as at all times 
  • Milk – I at all times use complete milk, however the milk is there to assist bind the cookie dough 
  • Chocolate Chips – I used chocolate chips in each the brownies and the cookie dough, and to make it simpler I used milk chocolate in each 


The ganache is right here to create a scrumptious topping to the cookie dough brownies. It’s a thick and splendid topping to the already barely excessive brownie and cookie dough combo, however I like it. 

After all, you’ll be able to go away the ganache off, and the recipe will nonetheless 100% work so there are not any worries there. Nevertheless, it actually does stage it up! 

I used a mixture of darkish chocolate, milk chocolate and double cream to create a splendidly thick ganache that will set tremendous simply. I due to this fact used much less cream than a standard ganache would, nevertheless it works – belief me! I simply unfold it onto the brownies, after which let it set together with the brownies and cookie dough. 


When baking the brownies it’s a must to persist with the principles of brownie baking – skewer exams don’t work, don’t break your combine by utilizing a mixer as a substitute of folding the components in, don’t use chocolate with too low a cocoa content material.

I at all times bake my brownies till there’s a small wobble in the course of the tin, after which I allow them to cool absolutely. As you might be topping them with cookie dough and ganache, the fridge will assist set the brownies completely. 

As soon as the brownies are cooled, I press the cookie dough on high. You don’t need the brownie to be too sizzling in any other case pushing the cookie dough on could go barely unsuitable. 

I then stage off the cookie dough, pour over the ganache, and set within the fridge for a number of hours – however usually in a single day as you get the bests outcomes this manner.
