Two-Tone Fudge Brownies Recipe

These moist fudgy brownies have a scrumptious topping that tastes just like chocolate chip cookie dough! My husband and I and our young sons enjoy church fellowship at frequent potluck meals. Everyone loves these brownies...and they make enough to feed a crowd. —Rebecca Kays Klamath Falls, Oregon

"I recall making this recipe and I'd adjusted it by using 1/2 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 tsp. salt. I'd omitted the nuts and baked brownies in an 11x7" or 12x8" greased and floured baking pan. I got a yield of 2 dozen brownies. I'd chilled these brownies for at least 1/2 hour! This is a great recipe! I'd recommend it to anyone to try out! delowenstein"

"Brilliant idea! Every time I've made them, they get raves. As others have said, the cookie dough layer is too thin, I double it. Also, I like walnuts in the cookie dough layer, either instead of or along with the ones in the brownies. I also add ¼ tsp. soda to the dough, to make it taste more like regular cookie dough. If you want them to look pretty, you'll have to line your pan with parchment or buttered foil. Then lift them out when completely cool and cut downward with a large sharp knife, cleaning between each cut."

"If you like chocolate chip cookie dough, you'll like these!

Make sure you allow enough time for the cookie dough layer to set properly; this layer can't be rushed."

"I had trouble spreading the cookie dough. It's definitely not a pretty dessert. I sneaked a piece before I put them out at our neighborhood barbecue, and it tastes delicious--it's just not pretty to look at! Also, the cookie layer is so thin, I don't know how it could possibly be that thick in the photo. If I make these again, the cookie dough will have to be doubled. So, this one gets mixed reviews. Tastes good, but not very easy to make it look good."

"having made this recipe many times, i have a few changes that i feel are quite necessary. first, there is no stinkin way that it only takes 16-22 mins to cook those brownies! it easily takes over half an hour. exact times vary of course, but not that much. do not mix the chocolate chips into the cookie dough, it will either tear the brownies to shreds as you spread or simply refuse to spread at all. sprinkle them on top, please. this works fine without the nuts, subbing extra chocolate chips for the nuts works great. and this is just something i like to do, but a mix of almond and vanilla extracts with some honey works wonderfully as a sub for the straight vanilla."

"This is a great dessert!! People rave about it wherever I take it! However I have a confession to make......I have never made the brownie part. I use a good-quality brownie mix,let it cool completely, then frost with the cookie dough layer. I always return home with a scraped-clean pan.By the way Philsfan and anyone else wondering the same thing, I never put nuts in the brownies as long as the recipe calls for one cup or less since I am allergic to nuts."

"Do NOT cool before spreading the topping on or they will come apart. Ice the brownies with cookie dough while both are warm."

"Yes, the cookie dough layer is indeed raw. You do not cook it, but notice there are no eggs in the cookie dough part of the recipe. Therefore it is perfectly safe (and delicious)!"
