Brownies with Cookie Dough Frosting

Brownies with Cookie Dough Frosting are two decadent desserts combined into one! A fudgy brownie base is frosted with a smooth, creamy cookie dough frosting. Each bite will have you guessing: is it a brownie or a cookie?! BOTH! This is a dessert that you aren’t going to be able to resist!

Making homemade brownies can seem like a hassle compared to a boxed brownie, but it is SO worth it. Let’s break it down:


First, you make the brownie batter. Nothing fussy here, just good ol’ chocolatey goodness. A combination of butter, sugars, flour, cocoa powder and baking soda do the trick. Then, they are baked to perfection. These brownies are scrumptious on their own, but you can’t say no to a cookie dough frosting!

INGREDIENTS
For the brownies:
2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (Dutch processed preferred)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
For the frosting:
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS
For the brownies:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the sides of the bowl in between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
Mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt on low speed until a thick batter forms. Fold the chocolate chips in with a rubber spatula. Gently press the brownie batter into a greased or parchment lined 9×9 pan. Its ok if the batter is thick and this may take a moment to gently push it into a flat layer in the pan.
Bake for 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let the brownies cool completely in the pan before frosting.
For the frosting:
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about a few minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in the powdered sugar until smooth. Mix in the flour and vanilla extract until smooth.
With the mixer speed on low, add in the heavy cream and mix until just combined. The purpose of this is to achieve a frosting consistency. If it’s still a little too thick, add in a little bit more heavy cream until creamy enough. Fold the chocolate chips in with a rubber spatula.
Once the brownies are completely cooled, frost with the cookie dough frosting. Enjoy!
