Graham Cracker Cookie Dough Brownies

31 Jul

These brownies where originally suppose to be Cookie Dough S’mores Brownies but when it came to putting on the marshmallows, I hesitated. Would it be too much? I ran out of the kitchen and asked my boyfriend. His answer was, “less is more”.  And for once, I listened to him.  Boy, am I glad I did. These suckers are rich.

Buttery graham crackers lay the foundation for a fudgy brownie and then topped with egg free cookie dough.  It’s a sugar high in the best form.  Enjoy!

Serves 12


For the crust:

  • 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
  • 12 tablespoons of butter melted

For the brownie layer:

  • 1 box of brownie mix

For the cookie dough: 

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature or almost melted
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree’s F. Spray 8 by 8 inch pan with nonstick spray.

Mix together the melted butter and the graham crackers. Press into bottom of prepared pan.  Bake for 10 min or until browned.

In the meanwhile, make the brownies according to directions on the back of the box. Once the crust is done, pour the batter on top. And stick it back in the oven for the designated time according to the directions.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and both the sugars. Add in the salt, the cream and the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour. Now, fold in the chocolate chips. Stick the cookie dough in the refrigerator until cold.

When the brownies are done, let them come to room temperature before assembling. Press the cookie dough on top of the brownies. Enjoy!

      I do these too! I use muffin wrraepps and make them for “cake-like brownies). Sometimes I will cut them in half horizontally and put ice cream and strawberries inside.
