Cookie Dough Brownies

Clyde loves him some chocolate chip cookie dough, so he looks for opportunities to add it to things. I've attempted something similar before with a mix where you throw chunks of cookie dough into the brownie and then bake them, but then it's just cookie and not cookie dough.

So we found a recipe where you bake the brownies and then slap the cookie dough on top. Awesome. They had a recipe but Clyde's favorite edible cookie dough comes from Paula Deen's Cookie Dough Truffles. I find them merely acceptable, but they might be Clyde's favorite thing I've ever made (and I've made a bunch of stuff).

We really like the Hershey's Supreme Brownie Mix, so I just used that and baked as directed.
I let them cool completely and then I added Paula's Cookie Dough on top and put them in the fridge to chill. Here's the recipe in case you are interested.

Cookie Dough Brownies

1 box favorite brownie mix (plus ingredients to make the brownies)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate morsels


Bake brownies and directed and let them cool completely.

In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels. Spread the cookie dough on top of the brownies and then chill for 2 hours. Cut and enjoy, suckas!

These were ridiculous. So good, but probably way too much cookie dough on top. I didn't even think to compare the amount used in the actual recipe to the amount that Paula Deen's recipe made.
