{cookie dough} fudge brownies

cookie dough
fudge brownies
yeah, those are the name of some of my best friends
I haven't made these in YEARS!
Now I'm wondering "what was wrong with me????!??!?!
These are so unbelievable yummy!
And {pause for dramatic effect} they are cookie dough....ya just can't go wrong with that.
My kids think I'm totally awesome and the phrase "best mom ever"
 floated around the kitchen a little.

My poor waistline {grimace}

Fudge Brownie Recipe
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
(pinch of salt , optional, I usually don't add it)
1. Heat oven to 350 F.  I add foil to a 9 inch square baking pan and grease the foil.  Stir together the butter, sugar, and vanilla.  Add eggs; and mix very well.  In another boil I mix my dry ingredients together.  Slowly add the 2 mixtures together and stir just until mixed.  The less you stir the better!  Spread in pan.

2.  We like our brownies under-baked.  Especially for this recipe because you keep them cold in the fridge.  Kinda just watch them until they start to pull away from the edges barely and the center isn't "jiggly".  About 15 to 20 minutes.

3.  When I take them out of the oven I take the foil out and cool them on a rack because (I think) brownies keep baking until they're cool. 

Cookie Dough Topping
(I basically just use my tried-and-true chocolate chip cookie dough recipe minus the eggs)
6 Tablespoon soft butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
(pinch of salt, optional)
2 cups chocolate chips (I think if you have the mini ones that would be nicer but I didn't and it really didn't make a huge difference.)
1. stir together butter, sugars.  Add vanilla.  In another bowl I mix together the dry ingredients and gradually add it all together.  Stir in your chocolate chips.

2. Spread over completely cooled brownies.  Put it all in the fridge.  The cooler it is the easier to cut pretty clean cut bars.  

3.  You can drizzle melted chocolate, Hershey's syrup, or sprinkles over the top!

Hiding in the closet with the brownies,

I wouldn't dare make these for fear I would devour the entire pan of brownies by myself. :) They look sooo absolutely wonderful. I even tortured myself by reading the whole recipe. I may have drooled on myself. lol

you don't need the baking soda in the cookie dough part. it is added to make baked cookies rise in the oven, and since these don't get cooked, it will only add a weird, salty flavor to the unbaked dough (which is prob why you haven't been adding salt to these)
