I made these sweet little morsels on New Year's Eve. JC had to work the weekend so we decided to just stay home and take it easy, our niece Peanut spent the night with us. It may not have been the best idea to serve these sugar-laden goodies to two little girls... sugar high much?
I found this recipe courtesy of Pinterest. Made it pretty true to the original recipe, but as anyone knows me, I'll be making some changes to it the next time.
What You'll Need:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
COOKIE DOUGH (EGG FREE!):
3/4 cup butter
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
What You Do:
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, mix butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Mix in melted chocolate. Blend in flour and mix just until combined (don’t over-mix). 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.
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.
Spread cookie dough over the cooled brownies. Refrigerate until the dough is firm and serve.
These are so sweet, I can only eat about a 1/2 a bar, but they are definately good, and the kids LOVED them!
