How to make brownies with cookie dough on top
To make chocolate chip cookie dough brownies is deceptively easy and involves a simple 3-step process.
Step 1- Prepare the brownie base
Start by preparing the brownie base. To keep this recipe keto-friendly, I opted to use my favorite flourless keto brownies as the base.
Set aside at least 30 minutes for this step, as you’ll need to cook the brownies completely, and allow them to cool down.
Step 2- Prepare the edible eggless cookie dough
Prepare your edible eggless cookie dough by combining all your ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. You want the cookie dough to be less thick than traditional cookie dough. To achieve this, you’ll need to add some extra milk (or liquid of choice) to thin out.
Step 3- Top the brownies with the cookie dough
Once your brownies have cooled completely, top the brownies with the edible cookie dough. Ensure the entire top of the brownies is covered in it. Once it is covered, refrigerate for 30 minutes, for it to firm up slightly.
Once firm, slice your cookie dough brownies into pieces.
Can you make brownies with pre-made cookie dough?
Topping these brownies with pre-made cookie dough will work well, but again, you’ll need to play around with the liquids.
If you make your cookie dough in advance (up to 2 days), ensure that you keep the cookie dough at room temperature. As this edible cookie dough is eggless and flourless, refrigerating it won’t be an issue.
If you prepare the cookie dough longer than 2 days in advance, you will need to refrigerate it. Once you are ready to use it, let it thaw at room temperature for at least 2 hours. If the cookie dough is too crumbly before topping the brownies, slowly add some milk or liquid to thin out.
How to store cookie dough brownies
Healthy cookie dough brownies need to be stored in the fridge. Ensure they are kept in a sealed container or on a plate covered in plastic wrap. Doing this will ensure the cookie dough topping doesn’t harden and the brownie base becomes brittle.
Cookie dough brownies are freezer friendly and can be stored in the freezer. To freeze them for later consumption, wrap each cookie dough brownie in parchment paper, before placing them in a ziplock bag.
To enjoy cookie dough brownies from the freezer, allow thawing at room temperature.
