Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bars


Last night around 10 or 10:30 my mother asked me to make anything for her to take to work today. I was painted but, decided to help her out and start baking at 10:30 at night instead. I browsed Pinterest for a bit and found these delicious little treats. I ended up using this recipe from Recipe Girl. The only thing I really changed were the brownies. I used a box mix instead of the homemade batch the recipe calls for. 


This morning Alec and I took the bars out of the fridge, cut them up, placed them on this Easter platter and I decorated them a little bit. I changed the recipe and used a brownie and cookie dough recipe that I liked better. You have to try these! Here is my recipe:

10 tbsp butter
1 1/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
pinch of salt
2tsp vanilla extract

Egg Free Cookie Dough-
3/4 cup butter (room temperature)
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4cup white sugar
3 Tablespoons milk
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Teaspoon shortening
