Cookie Dough Brownies

I figured it was about time to unveil my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies! I've held onto this recipe for many years, and make it on rare occasions. It is such a decadent treat, and if I made it more often, I would weigh a lot more!

How to Make Cookie Dough Brownies

Let's get into how to make this cookie dough brownie recipe!

Making the Brownies

You will want to use my Easy Brownie recipe, and make it according to its instructions. The only difference is that you should double the ganache in the recipe. Use half of it in the brownies as instructed, then set the other half aside. The other half of the ganache will be used on top of the brownies and cookie dough.

If you want your brownies to be a little thinner than mine, bake them in a 9x13 rectangle pan.

Making the Cookie Dough

These cookie dough brownies use a no egg cookie dough, so it doesn't need to be baked to be safe to eat.

First cream the sugars and butter together until it's a lighter color and fluffy. Add the heavy cream and dry ingredients, and mix until it's well combined. Then add as many chocolate chips as you want!

Putting the Cookie Dough Brownies Together

Now, once the brownies are cooled, use a small offset spatula to spread the cookie dough on top. Try to spread it as even as possible!

After the cookie dough is on, reheat the leftover chocolate ganache until it is a runny consistency, then pour it on top of the cookie dough. Use an offset spatula again to spread the ganache around so it coats the entire top.

You can sprinkle some chocolate chips on top if you would like!

Put the pan in the fridge for about 30 minutes. This will help the ganache set up quicker.

Cut the brownies, and enjoy!

Cookie Dough
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 tbsp heavy cream or milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • chocolate chips amount is to your discretion


  1. Grease or line with parchment paper a 10x10 cake pan OR a 9x13 cake pan. Preheat the over to 350 F.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients except for the 8 oz chocolate chips and 1 cup heavy cream. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Heat the heavy cream over the stove or in the microwave until it boils. Pour over the 8 oz chocolate chips. Let it sit for 1 minute, then stir until it is smooth. Set aside, this is your ganache.
  4. Pour half of the brownie batter into a 10x10 cake pan, or you can use a 9x13 pan as well. Layer 1/4 of the ganache on top of the brownie batter, and use a butter knife to swirl it around. Pour the rest of the brownie batter on top, then another 1/4 of the ganache on top of that, and again swirl it. You will still have half of the ganache left, we are saving that for the very end.
  5. Bake for 1 hour- 1 hour 15 minutes, or until the edge of the brownie has pulled away from the pan. Set aside to cool.
Cookie Dough

  3. Add the flour and salt and mix until well combined.
  4. Add as many chocolate chips as you would like!

Building the Brownies
  1. When the brownies have cooled, spread the cookie dough on top of the brownies.
  2. Heat up the other half of the ganache saved from earlier until it is a runny consistency. Pour on top of the cookie dough, and spread it evenly on top. Sprinkle some chocolate chips and salt on top, if desired.
  3. Put the brownie into the fridge so the ganache can set up.
  4. Cut and enjoy!
