Cookie Dough Brownies

February 12

There are those times in life when only ridiculously trashy food will do and that’s where these brownies come in. They have a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough followed by an Oreo centre and are finished off with a traditional brownie batter and a glossy chocolate glaze. Cue the food coma!

  • time 45 mins


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line a 22 x 30cm (9"x 12") baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. 2. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and place in microwave for 30 second blasts, stirring after each one until the contents are completely melted.
  3. 3. With a hand-held electric mixer, whisk the sugar and eggs together for 2-3 minutes until pale and fluffy. Slowly add the melted chocolate and butter then add the vanilla extract and continue to whisk until thickened. Lastly, sift in the flour and baking powder and fold through gently.
  4. 4. Spread the cookie dough evenly across the base of the prepared baking tin. Arrange a layer of Oreo cookies across the top of the dough and then pour over the brownie batter.
  5. 5. Smooth the top and then bake in the middle shelf of the oven for 20 minutes until the top is firm and the brownie has come away slightly from the sides of the tin.
  6. 6. Allow the brownies to cool on a wire rack slightly before removing from the tin to cool completely.
  7. 7. Prepare the glaze by placing the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and place in the microwave for 30 second blasts as before, stirring until smooth. Whisk in the icing sugar and cream until smooth and set aside.
  8. 8. Pour the glaze over the brownies and allow to set slightly before slicing.
