Fudgy Sugar Cookie Dough Brownies

Pin It!
Oh. My. Word.

You must try these brownies.  They are incredibly moist and fudgy.  Like, not falling apart or needing a spoon moist and fudgy, but firm and soft chocolate brownie heaven.  Not at all cakey, oh no, that is not acceptable. 

It starts off with a box mix and with add ins, becomes a decadent brownie no one will guess started with a mix.  Eggs, oil, coffee . . . you may question the 1/3 cup of coffee in this recipe.  Trust me, you don't taste it.  This makes a 9x13 pan and there isn't any coffee flavor in the brownies.  Coffee, when in the right amounts, only enhances and intensifies chocolate flavor and boy does it ever in these brownies.  You can thank this simple addition for the richness of these brownies.

And there is cookie dough!  I reallly, really, really, really, like sugar cookie dough.  It is in my blood now, I'm sure of it.  Sweet and subtle, but perfectly contrasting the rich fudginess of the brownie.  Still soft, not at all crunchy, but the sugar cookie dough flavor is a must in this recipe.

Seriously, this is the best.  There are LOTS of sugar cookie dough brownies, but we have turned to this one again and again and again.  It was one of the first recipes I posted so you know it has to be good. 

I have been gone all weekend in Texas with my cousins and got back last night.  To welcome me home, Nathan made these for me.  Isn't that sweet?  He must've known I had eaten all the three week old brownies

And these smell so good.  Even after cooling sitting all night, I could smell the rich brownie all over the kitchen.  I bet you can smell theses through the screen.  Fudgy, chocolate, rich, smooth brownies.

  1. Oh my word is right! These are fudgy awesomeness and I love brownies with a crust. It makes them even better!

    1. Thanks Dorothy! I agree about the crust completely!

  2. Woah, good for Nathan! Those look SO good, I'm drooling. ;) And the coffee in the brownies... I'll have to try that!

    1. I know, right? Do try the coffee, it works wonders!

    2. I bet it makes it more chocolatey! I realize that isn't a word!

    3. O know, my vocabulary has been, uh, unique since I started blogging!

  3. Fudge and sugar cookies?! Say no more, I'm sold. These look wonderfully delicious. :)

    1. Thanks Tina! You know, that is how I should have described it instead of my rambling paragraphs - "Fudge and sugar cookies!"

  6. Yummy! I don't have any chocolate chips in the house (just used them all up when making over 100 cupcakes + wedding cake for my sisters wedding!), so I'm going to use heath bar crumbles instead. :)
