Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies – Fudgy brownies with a layer of egg free peanut butter cookie dough topped with even more chocolate!
I am pretty sure that cookie dough might be one of my favorite things.  These Cookie Dough Truffles are like heaven.  You get to have edible cookie dough you don’t have to feel guilty about!  
I mean, these Brownie Cupcakes are topped with a cookie dough frosting. It doesn’t get much better than that!  Well, maybe if you have a fudgy chocolate brownie that you top with peanut butter cookie dough.

Chocolate and peanut butter were just meant to be together in my mind.  And these brownies with cookie dough on top are the perfect combination of everything that I love.  Well, everything I love about desserts that is!  The edible cookie dough is exactly what peanut butter cookie dough tastes like, and then it is on top of a super fudgy brownie.  
Part of the thing that makes cookie dough not safe to eat raw is the eggs, but also the flour.  Most people don’t second guess eating raw flour, but technically you aren’t supposed to.  So this eggless cookie dough make sure the flour is baked to kill off any bacteria to make it safe to eat!  
Chocolate brownies and edible cookie dough come together for an epic treat!
I have made plenty of chocolate peanut butter brownies in the past.  Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies are probably the most popular. But these are something special.  If you are the type of person that makes a batch of cookies, just so you can eat the dough, these are for you!  
For these cookie dough brownies you can use your favorite Homemade Brownies or you can use a box mix.  You just need enough batter for an 8 inch square baking pan.  Then you mix up the cookie dough, just like you would if you are baking cookies.

Make sure to let the brownies cool completely before spreading on the cookie dough.  If you don’t, it will tear up the brownies and just make a mess. Then pour on the melted chocolate and let it cool.  The peanut butter drizzle on top is completely optional!  It just makes it look pretty, and more peanut butter is never wrong in my book.

  1. Thanks for adding to my Peanut Butter linky party! I love this recipe!!!

  2. I NEED to make these. However, I do believe I will NEED to know what an envelope of unsweetened chocolate is.? Is it cocoa powder or a square of baking chocolate? How many teaspoons in said envelope.? you have me stumped….. LOL

    1. Sorry – Nestle sells a box of pre-melted unsweetened chocolate. 1 envelope is equal to one ounce. So you would need 2 baking squares melted.
