I thought you'd never ask!  If you were amazed by the pan, and I'm sure you were :-) . . . . . this is going to make your mouth water and have your mind figuring just how many miles you have to run to justify eating this!  Trust me!   Cookie Dough Brownies (aka Two-Tone Fudge Brownies) from Taste of Home is one dessert that will have all the ladies (and some of the men) asking for the recipe!

Who doesn't love cookie dough?  Honestly, I know the whole raw egg thing is gross, but once it's mixed in, I forget it's in there!  I heard on the Rachael Ray show that the salmonella poisoning is because of the ecol i on the OUTSIDE of the shell and NOT on the inside, so if you soak your eggs in warm water with a cap full of bleach, it will kill the bacteria on the shell.  That being said, this version of cookie dough is totally safe as there are no raw eggs in it.  I sort of consider myself a cookie dough expert, and I have to say I cannot tell the difference.

Here is the recipe:
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, melted and slightly cooled
cream together:
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Add the melted chocolate chips to this, then mix in:
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Bake at 350 in a 9x13 pan for 16-22 minutes.  Cool.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar

3 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips.

Now, I ALWAYS double the cookie dough layer - seriously, it makes it so much easier to spread it on top of the brownie base and makes a nice thick layer of the "good" stuff.  Plus, if you feel the  need to eat some, there is still plenty left for your dessert - not that I've ever done that or anything.  Just a thought!
I would have shown how they look after they've been cut, but these were for our potluck. . . .  and now they're all gone!


  1. Oh those look yummy. I noticed Jodie said on Facebook that she was hungry for chocolate chip cookie bars. I bet that was after reading this!

  2. Oh I hope I did not make her "slip up". She is doing sooooo good. I wish I had her dedication.

  3. I would say you do have her dedication!
