As promised last week, I remade these cookie dough bars with homemade brownies these week. I’m still not 100% happy with them because I think the brownie recipe could use some improvement, but they are definitely better than last week’s box brownies! It you end up making these, I would love your feedback and if you have a good classic brownie recipe, send it my way so I can try it!
3 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butter
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350. The recipe called for greasing the pan and then lining the pan with parchment paper. I would just use the parchment paper.
For this next step, the recipe called for melting your butter and half the semisweet chocolate and bittersweet chocolate in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. You can do that or your can do it in the microwave. I did it in the microwave and it was fine, just make sure you stir it every 30 seconds until it’s melted.
Once the semisweet, bittersweet chocolate, and butter are combined, set aside the mixture to cool until it’s warm. If it’s to hot when you add the next step, you’ll curdle the eggs.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until they are just. Make sure not to over mix. Fold in the warm chocolate mixture.
In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk together. Fold the dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture until just combined. Add the remaining chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 32 to 36 minutes. It will look slightly under done, but don’t over bake it because it’ll finish baking in the pan as it cools.
Once it is completely cool, add the cookie dough. See the recipe here. Make sure it is completely cool, but not cold so that the cookie dough adheres to the brownie.
This brownie recipe is from The Sweeter Side of Amy’s Bread. I’m definitely going to try this again and might even make a live stream video so y’all can see how I do it! Until next time, XO
