Tuesdays with Dorie - Chipster Topped Brownies

Who doesn't love brownies?  Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies?  What if you put chocolate chip cookie dough on top of brownie dough and baked them together?

You'd get extra special double love and you'd get this weeks TWD selection Chipster Topped Brownies as chosen by Beth over at Supplicious.  

Many of the bakers were having trouble with getting these to bake all the way through and not be runny in the middle.  Lucky for me I don't always follow directions correctly.  I baked mine in a sheet pan and had no problems.  I did, however, have problems with getting the cookie dough to spread out over the brownie dough.  I ended up just spooning it on an letting it spread on its own.

I made a few adjustments in the recipe to suit my tastes.  Chocolate chip cookies on top of chocolate brownies seemed like overload to me, so I subbed butterscotch chips and sprinkled the brownie dough with toffee sprinkles before spooning on the cookie dough.  They turned out delish.

I also made some white chocolate ice cream to go on top.  I hadn't had the ice cream maker out in ages and this weekend it saw some serious action.  I'll post those recipes later this week.  In the mean time, head over the Beth's site for the chipster/brownie recipe.


  1. Those toffee bits look wonderful with the brownies!

  2. Wow, your brownie looks delish, especially with home made ice cream! Butterscotch chips and toffee sprinkles sound yummy! If I attempt these again, I'll try the sheet pan route.

  3. These look yummy! Congrats on making them work--baking in a sheet pan is very clever!

  4. White chocolate ice cream?? Sounds like a great combo!

  5. They look so fabulous.

    Mine baked for 90 minutes and I still had goo.

  6. White chocolate ice cream sounds perfect. I also used butterscotch. Wanted to taste the chocolate in the BROWNIE. Yours looks heavenly.
