Breaking all the rules. (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies
I have a steadfast rule against baking from boxes. I would much rather put in a little effort and bake from scratch. Mind you, I have NONE of the qualities a baker needs. I am a complete wreck and get flour all over and don’t measure properly and have no patience. But things usually turn out fine. I do have one major exception to that rule that is Jiffy muffins. Because Jiffy muffins (blueberry or corn) are both amazingly delicious.
So I wanted to bake for the Superbowl but don’t have a lot of time (or money) so I decided to try out this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies from Betty Crocker via Bakerella. They looked soooo yummy. And, well, I figure if you combine two different mixes it’s kind of equal to baking from scratch…right? (When I got to the store they actually had a one box mix for these exact brownies…so I get bonus points for not just buying that!)
I forgot how easy and quick and clean baking from a box is. I mean, I still screwed everything up by forgetting to soften the butter and then melting it in the microwave and then using it anyways.
I had to make them tonight because I am totally busy the rest of the weekend. Hope they taste good come Sunday! (But you have no idea how much I just wanted to take spoonfuls of it right out of the oven!)

this is kinda like a baked version of Ben and Jerry’s half baked ice cream….chocolate chip cookies + brownies = the best of both worlds!!
