I found these chocolate chip brownie cookie dough bites on Pinterest and they caught my eye. They are super easy to make but a bit putzy. You either need to have the time or work on them in stages throughout your day(s). Needless to say, they are quite tasty and look impressive. Mine turned out a bit large but no one complained.
3/4 C butter, softened, 3/4 C brown sugar, 1/4 sugar, 2 TB milk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 C flour, dash of salt, 2 C mini chocolate chips, 1 package of fudge brownie mix- has to be fudge! (baked and cooled) and 1 package of melting chocolate.
First, make the cookie dough. Beat the butter and sugars together until creamy. Add milk and vanilla. Beat to combine. Beat in flour and salt. Stir in 1 C of mini chocolate chips.
On a foil lined baking sheet, drop rounded balls of cookie dough on the pan. ( This is where I made a mistake) Don’t make too big. They will look small, but trust me, go smaller like tsp. size. Freeze the cookie dough balls for at least an one hour.
Bake brownies as directed. Once cooled cut into squares. You don’t have to be exact. One the cookie dough is frozen, pull out of freezer. Take a brownie square and wrap it around the cookie dough until surrounded. As you can see, it ball gets bigger. Once they are all covered, return to freezer for at least 30 more minutes. Longer is better though.
Prepare melting chocolate in a double boiler. I used Ghiradelli dark chocolate squares. Dip brownie bites into chocolate and sprinkle with remaining mini chocolate chips. Store in the fridge until ready to enjoy.
