Is the cookie dough safe to eat?
This cookie dough recipe is made without eggs so you don't have to worry about raw eggs in this recipe.
However, if you are sensitive to uncooked flour, then you may want to find an alternative to this recipe. The flour is not cooked in the cookie dough.
- Boxed brownie mix - or you can make your favorite homemade brownie recipe. I used Betty Crocker brownie mix so the ingredients will be based on that.
- Margarine - butter can be used
- Brown sugar
- Milk - 1 or 2% milk can be used or whole milk. Almond milk can be used as well.
- Flour - all purpose flour
- Chocolate chips - semi-sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips
Making the brownies
The brownies are made with a Betty Crocker brownie mix and simply follow the directions on the back of the box. I used two boxes to make the brownies thicker and fuller in the 9x13 pan. That certainly isn't necessary.
They brownies will be made according to package directions and baked according to package directions for two brownie mixes.
The brownies, after baking, will need to be cooled completely before the cookie dough can be spread on top.
Making the chocolate chip cookie dough
The eggless chocolate chip cookie dough can be made while the brownies are cooling on the counter after baking.
Mix the butter, brown sugar and sugar together in a medium bowl.
Then, mix in the milk and vanilla. Stir in the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips.
YES! That would be delicious!
Yes you can. I do recommend to watch your sensitivity to noncooked flour, even if it is gluten free.
These brownies store best in the fridge in an airtight container or in the pan wrapped with foil. It is good to keep them chilled for the cookie dough to hold its shape.
- Set the margarine out on the counter to soften for the cookie dough while the brownies are cooking.
- Spray the brownie pan with cooking spray.
- Let the cookie dough brownies chill in the refrigerator before serving, if possible. It isn't completely necessary, it just helps the brownies set up before cutting.
- When cutting brownies, a plastic knife works the best!
