Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies




I'm sure cookie dough is something that many people can't resist. If you love cookies, you will definitely love cookie dough. But do you know what's even better than cookie dough? It's cookie dough frosting. On a brownie. gosh, this is what dreams are made of. Can you imagine a fudgy, dense and rich cocoa brownie topped with a layer of a creamy cookie dough? I believe you can, but in order to believe how good this combination is, you'll have to make these. I promise, this will be the best thing you'll have tasted in a while.

Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies

Brownies:
140g (1 1/4 sticks) butter
275g sugar
80g unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
70g (1/2 cup - 1 tbsp) flour

Cookie dough:
56g (1/4 cup) butter
100g powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp (30ml) heavy cream*
60g (1/2 cup) flour

*I believe full-fat milk would also work.

1) Preheat oven to 160C / 320F. Prepare a 20x20cm / 8x8 inch baking pan.

2) Make the brownies: In a medium saucepan, combine together butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Set over medium-low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted and the ingredients are combined. The mixture should look shiny and be hot, but not too hot. You should still be able to touch it.

3) Remove from heat and let cool a little bit. Add vanilla extract and stir in the eggs. When the mixture looks smooth, add flour and stir just until incorporated. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan. 

4) Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool before frosting.

5) While the brownies are cooling, prepare the frosting: In a large bowl with a mixer on high speed, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, salt, vanilla and beat until well incorporated. Add heavy cream followed by flour. Beat a few more minutes until the cookie dough looks fluffy.

6) Spread cookie dough on the brownie. Refigerate for at least one hour to let it set (I like leaving it in the fridge overnight). Cut into squares and serve. 

Store in the fridge. You can store them at room temperature as well, but the frosting will be softer.

Makes 16 bars.
