Cookie Dough Brownies : Take-Two

A few months ago, we made Gluten Free Cookie Dough Brownies:  http://wp.me/p3nMNw-4H . Today we decided to make it again, but this time as the classic flour version.A few notes on the recipe: we added dark chocolate chips to the brownies for extra chocolatey-ness. Also, we found that the cookie dough was very dense, so we added two tablespoons of milk to make it more spreadable.

Classic Brownies

What’s better than the smell of brownies baking in the oven? In many instances, nothing. These brownies are easy to whip up, creamy, and delicious!

To make these scrumptious goodies you’ll need…

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • a handful of chocolate chips

Method:

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. You may wonder why sifting is such an essential part in baking; sifting helps combine ingredients while breaking up clumps of flour. In short, sifting helps make the brownies light and fluffy.

Stir the cocoa into the melted butter; than blend in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Once these ingredients are thoroughly combined, add in the flour mixture and than the chocolate chips.

Place the mixture in a greased baking pan and in an oven heated to 350F. Bake for about 35 minutes and let cool for a few minutes before enjoying with a cold glass of milk!

Nutella Brownies

Nutella Brownies

To make these Nutella Brownies, we used the recipe from Nutella: les 30 recettes culte and adjusted it just a bit.

Ingredients:
150g butter
100g Nutella
100g dark chocolate
3 eggs
100g sugar
2 packets of vanilla sugar
100g flour
1 tsp. baking power
chocolate chips (optional)

Method:
First, preheat the oven to 390F. Then butter a medium-sized pan. Melt the butter in a small pot, then add the Nutella and mix well. Remove the pot from the stove and add the dark chocolate. Mix well. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla sugar until light and fluffy.  Slowly add the chocolate mix, flour, and baking powder. If you want to, you can add about a handful of chocolate chips. Mix the batter gently until just combined. Bake for about 20 minutes and enjoy with a glass of milk!
