Ahh, I’m so in love with my new camera lens! I bought a 50mm lens recently and wow – I just can’t stop taking pictures. I had been saving up for it for a while so I’m happy it turned out to be such a fantastic purchase. Today I have Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies for you – they were very kind to pose for me 😉
I got the idea to make these from Deb’s Bakery & Kitchen, a Dutch food blog. They are just so decadent! Also, I hear cookie dough is all the rage right now with cookie dough bars popping up everywhere (YUM). I still have to visit one but I bet it’s utterly delicious. Well, for now, I’ll satisfy myself with these cookie dough brownies!
Cookie Dough Brownies Recipe
Tools: 20x20cm baking tin
100 grams dark chocolate
90 grams unsalted butter
160 grams caster sugar
70 grams plain flour
icing sugar (optional)
Cookie Dough (source: Deb’s Bakery & Kitchen)
115 grams unsalted butter
45 grams icing sugar
50 grams brown sugar
30 ml water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
75 grams plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
100 grams chopped chocolate or chocolate chips (milk or dark chocolate)
- For the brownies, preheat the oven to 170C/325F and butter and line the baking tray.
- Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water.
- Remove bowl from the heat. Add the sugar and stir until incorporated. Then add the flour and again stir until well incorporated. Add the eggs and mix until smooth.
- Spoon the mixture into the baking tray and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. The result should be a flaky crust but a soft center. Leave to cool completely.
- When the brownie has cooled, make the cookie dough batter. Mix the butter and sugars until the sugar has been completely absorbed by the butter (this might take a while).
- Add the water a little at a time (don’t worry if it looks a bit curdled).
- Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
- Lastly, add the flour, salt and half of the chocolate. Stir well.
- Spread the cookie dough batter over the brownie and smoothen the top with a spatula. Sprinkle on the rest of the chocolate. Place in the fridge for at least an hour to firm up.
- Lift the whole cookie dough brownie out of the pan and slice into squares of your desired size. Enjoy!
