    Is there anything better than brownies and chocolate chip cookie covered in decadent chocolate syrup? This (surprisingly easy!) Brownie Cookie Dough Cake is sure to be a show-stopper!Brownie layer cake covered in cookie dough frosting with chocolate syrup drizzled over top on a rustic wooden cake stand.

    To make this cake you will need:

    Brownie layer cake covered in cookie dough frosting with chocolate syrup drizzled over top on a rustic wooden cake stand.

    Begin by preparing brownie mixes according to box directions. Place 2 cups of brownie batter into each 8-inch round cake pan, three pans total. (To prepare the pans I generously coated them with GOOP, then placed a parchment circle in the bottom, then added more GOOP.)

    Allow brownies to cool then remove from pan.

    While brownie is baking, prepare Cookie Dough Frosting.

      “Begin by preparing brownie mixes according to box directions.“

    Nice

    Can post the ultimate chocolate chip cookie dough brownie cake recipe I need full with out all the junk in between? I screen shot the recipes and it’s so garbled, you can’t even come close.

    you do no have a print botton not going to print 8 pages to get one

    How long do the brownie layers bake?

    Wondering if you’ve ever made the cookie dough brownie cake into cupcakes?

    Plzz show the contity of oil and water

    I will have the FAB 4(grandchildren) help make this for their grandpa. He will love it.

    I would like to print the recipe. However, all I get is the frosting. I would like to have the information on the brownies also on my print out. Any idea how to get that?

    Did you cook all 3 brownie pans together? If so, how long? I know the box of brownies has a time for 2-8in pans but not 3. Thanks so much! I’m making this for Thanksgiving 🙂

      Yes, I baked 3 pans at the same time. It’s a double recipe divided. 🙂

    What kind of Chocolate syrup do you use?

    For you chocolate chip cookie dough frosting, why are you using 2 1/2 cups of flour and nott powdered sugar? Or am I just having a senior moment.

    Made this for my son’s 21st birthday. He loved it! A big hit all around! Thank you

    I’m concerned about raw flour in the frosting? Can’t it make you sick?

      How do you cook raw flour?
      Simply spread two cups of flour on a baking sheet or Silpat, and bake for about 5 minutes at 350° F. Let cool completely. Then use the flour in your preferred cookie recipe. By carrying out this toasting process, you are killing off any bacteria that might be lingering in your flour before you’ve baked the cookies

    I just won our company baking contest with this and everyone is begging for the recipe 🙂

    I love your recipe.Thank you so much.

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
