Easy to Make Brownies

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies recipe combines two distinctly American flavors: brownies and chocolate chips.

There are all kinds of variations for this recipe. In fact, you can use any brownie recipe and chocolate chip cookie dough recipe and layer them together.

This version of easy to make brownies is so simple. It combines two mixes with a bit of extra miniature chocolate chips sprinkled on top. Plus, you can make these brownies ahead of time and cut them when you’re ready to serve them (if you can hide them from your family long enough.)

Easy to make, tastes amazing. That’s why this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies recipe is an Elf fave!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies Recipe from The Cookie Elf

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 26-32 minutes

Makes 25 bars


Brownie Layer

1 18-ounce brownie mix (or your favorite brownie recipe)

2/3 cup vegetable oil

¼ cup water

2 eggs

Cookie Dough Layer

1 16-18 ounce pouch chocolate chip cookie dough mix (or your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe without the eggs)

½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

3 tablespoons water

½ cup semisweet miniature chocolate chips

Directions for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Lightly spray foil or paper with vegetable spray.

  2. Pour brownie mix, vegetable oil, water, and eggs into a medium bowl. Stir ingredients together with a large spoon until blended, about 50-60 strokes, until dry mix particles are absorbed.

  3. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan. Spread evenly. Bake 26-32 minutes until set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Set brownies on a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, combine chocolate chip cookie dough mix, butter, and water thoroughly. Dough will be thick.

  5. Use moistened fingers to pat cookie dough evenly over brownie surface. Smooth the cookie dough surface with an angled spatula. Sprinkle extra miniature chocolate chips over cookie dough to create an attractive appearance (and add just a bit more chocolate to the cookies!)

  6. Cover the brownies with plastic wrap. Set the pan in the refrigerator for an hour or more until firm (up to a day.)

  7. To cut brownies, remove the pan from the refrigerator and take off the plastic wrap. Grasp ends of foil or parchment paper, lift brownies out of the pan, and set them on a cutting surface. Peel away foil or paper. Use a sharp knife to cut brownies in five rows of five (or any other size you choose.)

  8. Store brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Special Baking Tips for this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Recipe

  • If you choose to use a chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, make sure to eliminate eggs. The cookie dough layer in these brownies is not baked.

  • You can help the brownies chill faster if you place them in the freezer for 30 minutes. The firmer the dough, the easier it will be to cut the brownies.
