TWD--Chipster-Topped Brownies

Extremely decadent brownies topped with a layer of baked chocolate chip cookie dough.  These brownies are not for the faint of heart.   Our recipe this week for the Tuesday's With Dorie baking group was chosen by Beth of Supplicious.  Thank you for some chocolate here, Beth! ; )

I pretty much followed Dorie's recipe that you can get on Beth's blog.  I omitted the walnuts from the brownies, but only so more people could/would eat them.  (I LOVE WALNU"TS in brownies!)  Instead of bittersweet chocolate in the brownies, I used Hershey's Special Dark (which is bittersweet enough for me).  I feel like the 9x13 pan that I use is kind of a dark metal, so I always turn the heat down on the oven about 25 degrees.  I baked the cookie topped brownies for 45 minutes.  They were perfectly golden and passed the inserted knife test.  I cooled them completely, but while cutting them, I realized they were quite gooey in the center.   Not TOO gooey, but I wish they'd bake another five minutes or so.  I only tasted one bite of them while I was cutting them and we had company for dinner and after eating a huge, yummy dinner, I was/am too full to even have any of them.  I'm sure I'll take another bite of what is left of them tomorrow for another taste test!  But I did decide that I think I would like a good old brownie (with walnuts) in one hand and a delicious chocolate chip cookie in the other, rather than these big, thick, gooey brownies.  Weird?  I don't know, but maybe it is because I could easily eat a big ol' cookie and a nice size brownie, but these Chipsters are so over-the-top that I could only eat a very small piece and that's it.  Get it?  Good.  Either way, these ARE good and let's just not talk about ALL the butter, sugar, eggs and chocolate in both the brownie and cookie layer!

And now, for your viewing pleasure----

Clivia said...

Your chocolate chips didn't sink! How did you manage that? I use a glass pan, so maybe that was the difference.

Sarah Beck said...

looks fabulous, I'm just gonna have to try it!

Pamela said...

They are perfect, Katrina! I don't know how you did it, but they are really gorgeous. My cookie topping is definitely not as nice as yours. Great job!

Amanda said...

Wow they look wonderful! I wasn't sure how impressed I was with this recipe until they sat overnight. Very tasty!

Teanna said...

Oh I wasn't even crazy about these, but your pics have me drooling!!!!

Wow your brownies look perfect! I think they were yummy but I felt too guilty eating them, haha. :)

You pictures are great. Makes me want to eat another one. Love the zebra plate.

noble pig said...

Wow, that is serious decadence, I love it!

Karen said...

Wow!! Your layers look absolutely perfect!! I ended up cutting some of mine into little squares and taking them to work.

Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] said...

Oh Yummmmmm. These look great :-)
I am going to make these ASAP, though after reading that you liked the individual components better separate, I'm just going to try a small batch.

Megan said...

I can take chocolate overload any day of the week, so if you have any leftovers, send them my way!

mike said...

Wow - they look fantastic. I underbaked mine as well - it was rather tricky! You really captured the gooey, brownie essence - nicely done!

Carla said...

Gah, yours actually looks like a chocolate chip cookie on top of a brownie! Mine was a golden brown layer over a brownie layer. My chocolate chips disappeared too (aka sunk into the brownie layer) >.> Great job with yours. Funny how there are so many results with one recipe.

Jennifer said...

Wow, I admire your restraint, only one small piece?

I thought these tasted good, but mine were a bit underdone, too.

lasinthekitchen said...

OMG, it really was a viewing pleasure! Your brownies look fabulous!!

Jules Someone said...

Yours turned out so well! I think the sprinkling of chips was the key. Those are lovely

B said...

Yours look perfect!

pinkstripes said...

Your brownies look perfect! Great job.

Steph said...

Your look so perfect!

Engineer Baker said...

Whoa, it's like a sea of calorific, tasty goodness. Just unfair, unless you plan on sending some to me :) I'm all out!

Claire said...

Yours is so beautiful! I made these a while back and they did not look this good! I think maybe it had to do with baking them in the stoneware.

Leslie said...

Great photos! Mine were runnier than yours. I really should try to make them again but they were kind of a heartbreaker.

Megan said...

They look ooey gooy good to me. I'm sure I could eat a few with a tall glass of ice cold milk. oooh, now I have a craving!

Lisa Ernst said...

Wow! My two favorite treats combined. I'm leaving for NYC today, and can't wait to try Levains finally, and Jacques Torres!

spike. said...

yum, those pictures are making me drool.

Kayte said...

OMW your photos leap off the page and they are so lovely...what a great job you did on this! Wow factor here this week for sure!

dessertobsessed said...

ooey gooey gorgeous! i love the blondie-on-top-of-brownie thing going on!

bakingwiththeboys said...

These are some of the best looking ones I have seen!

TeaLady said...

Yes, they were rather rich. Rather yummy, but very rich. Glad yours turned out. Maybe they are supposed to be gooey. Most of them turned out that way.


Your pics are great of all that luscious gooeyness.

Lisa said...

Thanks, Katrina..can't believe it's been a year already. I only wish it were under happier circumstances. That said, those chipster brownies look divine. Yet another bookmark!

Martha said...

Wow, talk about over the top indulgent. I wonder if these would work better baked in that Baker's Edge Brownie Pan?

Jaime said...

yours looks like how i imagine they are supposed to - my chips sank a bit so you can't see them!

Clumbsy Cookie said...

What about a cookie in one hand, a brownie on the other and one of these babies in my mouth? I can see myself loving them!

basicallybaked said...

I can see why you wish you'd left them in a tad longer. That said, they still look delicious, and yes, they do look over the top, but in a good way! :-)

Madam Chow said...

Holy smokes - yours turned out perfectly! I love the melted chips on top.

Elyse said...

Ooo, Katrina, these look perfectly chocolatey to me! What a fabulous looking dessert. No worries here; I'm not a faint heart when it comes to dessert :) Have I told you that I'm so excited you're coming to the Bay Area this fall?!

CookiePie said...

Oooooh YUM!!! Those look amazing!! I bet oatmeal cookie dough on top of brownies would also be delicious.

PheMom said...

Seriously gorgeous Katrina! Your layers look so beautiful and defined too - Wow!

Tracey said...

Oh wow, look how absolutely perfect your layers are!! So jealous! My cookie dough sank into the brownie batter so I swirled them :)
