I think I may have found a new, favorite recipe! I just whipped these brownies up tonight and they were f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! I even have pics of the
mayhem delicious, mess that ensued as a result of my baking.
I saw this recipe on bakerella and let me tell you…she had me at “hello” or should I say the gorgeous photos of the brownies? I’m not one to post a recipe until I have tried it myself. Nothing gets me more motivated to bake than a pretty photo (sorry, I guess that’s the designer side of me showing). Best part of making these, I had all the ingredients already in our panty! Score!
I think what put these “over-the-top” for me and for my family, was the ganache frosting. Delicious. Simply delicious.
Here’s the full recipe:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
(Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box)
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® chocolate chip cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting, if desired (I used the ganache recipe below)
Heat oven to 350ºF (325ºF for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray, or grease with shortening. Make brownie mix as directed on box. Spread in pan.Make cookie mix as directed on pouch, using butter and 1 egg. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batter; press down lightly.
Bake 42 to 47 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool on cooling rack 30 minutes. Frost with frosting. For brownies, cut into 7 rows by 6 rows.Makes 42 brownies
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
6 Tbsp butter
In a small saucepan, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage.
Pour over the chocolate morsels.
Let stand about 20 seconds and stir until smooth.
Pour over brownies and let set before cutting.
**UPDATE 1/27/12: We’ve been eating these brownies for 2 days now. I finally overdid it! I would highly recommend you pace yourself….one brownie.at.a.time. Learn from my mistakes. On a side note: this could quite possibly be the best ganache recipe, ever.
