Cookie Dough Brownies :)

   For those of you who know me well, you know that if I have to make brownies, I'll probably make cookie dough brownies. It's been a family favorite for a long time!

     After a long day writing, every writer needs chocolate! So here's my favorite recipe. :)

For the brownie layer, mix the following in a bowl.

                                                  1 cup melted butter or oil
                                                  2 cups sugar
                                                  4 eggs
                                                  1 and 1/3 cups flour
                                                  1/2 cup cocoa
                                                  1 tsp. salt
                                                  1 tsp. baking powder
                                                  1 tsp. vanilla

      Mix well, and put in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

                                Allow the brownies to cool, then mix the following together.

                                                 1/2 cup softened butter
                                                 1/4 cup brown sugar
                                                 1/4 cup sugar
                                      Add - 
                                                 2 Tbsp. milk
                                                 1 tsp. vanilla
                                                 1 cup flour

                                Cream together, and spread on top of brownies.

         Then, melt a bag of chocolate chips with 1 Tbsp. shorting and spread on top. You can sprinkle nuts, crushed candy canes, or whatever you want for variety. 

Note - The actual brownie layer isn't what you would describe as gooey, but in order to spread the cookie dough layer on top, it needs to be slightly stiffer. If you're looking to make the brownies slightly gooier and still be able to spread the cookie dough layer on top, you can add a bit more oil/melted butter in the brownie layer, and be careful that they don't get over baked.
