Ingredients

For the Edible Cookie Dough:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (heat-treated to kill any bacteria)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Brownies:

  • 1 box brownie mix (plus ingredients required on the box, usually eggs, oil, and water)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, for extra chocolatey brownies)

For the Chocolate Coating:

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Brownies:
  • Preheat your oven and prepare the brownie mix according to the package instructions. Stir in 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake the brownies in a 9×13-inch pan as directed. Let them cool completely before cutting into small squares, about 1 inch each.
  1. Make the Edible Cookie Dough:
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and milk, and mix until well combined.
  • Gradually add the heat-treated flour and salt, mixing until a dough forms. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Roll the cookie dough into small balls, about 1 inch each. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for about 15-20 minutes until firm.
  1. Assemble the Brownie Bombs:
  • Flatten a brownie square in your hand and place a cookie dough ball in the center. Wrap the brownie around the cookie dough, sealing it completely. Repeat with the remaining brownies and cookie dough balls. Place the brownie bombs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for about 15 minutes until firm.
  1. Prepare the Chocolate Coating:
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips or melting wafers with the vegetable oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  1. Coat the Brownie Bombs:
  • Using a fork or dipping tool, dip each brownie bomb into the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off. Place the coated brownie bombs back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  1. Chill and Serve:
  • Refrigerate the brownie bombs until the chocolate coating is set, about 20 minutes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Tips for the Best Brownie Bombs

  • Heat-Treated Flour: To make the flour safe to eat in raw cookie dough, spread it on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 5 minutes, then let it cool completely before using.
  • Firm Cookie Dough: Chilling the cookie dough balls before assembling helps keep them firm and easier to work with.
  • Storage: Store the brownie bombs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Brownie bombs with chocolate chip cookie dough are an incredibly decadent delight that combine two of your favorite sweets into one mouthwatering bite. These bombs, with their rich brownie outside and creamy cookie dough inside, are ideal for sating any sweet tooth. Have fun creating and indulging in these delicious sweets! 🍫🍪
