It's Snowing, And I Made A Really Great Treat!

Truly it's snowing.  Right this very instant!  I don't want this quite yet.  Give me a few months.  Actually it could stay fall for approximately 2 months and 19 days to be exact.  I don't need snow until Dec. 25th, and then it can go away.  Stay in the mountains is my motto, but I forget sometimes that I CHOSE TO LIVE IN THE STINKING MOUNTAINS!  So it snows some years in Oct.  Most years in Oct. Sometimes even June and Sept.  I can really only count on July and Aug. to not have snow.  So I will just make fabulous treats to keep me happy.  No really I took these treats to a new little family last night.  They just had a beautiful baby boy.  He looks just like his daddy.  I thought they might like this treat.  Turns out----who wouldn't love this treat.  So I'm sharing the recipe since it ain't mine to keep anyways.  So thanks to Mel at Mel's Kitchen Cafe.  I love her stuff.  Funny thing..........she used to live in Logan.  She used to frequent the bakery a lot.   We never met, but I'm sure we would have been friends.  And she makes good treats!

Enjoy these.  And I'll get my positive attitude out of the closet as well as my ski coat.  For those of you who worry about cookie dough......... no need.  There are no raw eggs here.  Eat to your little hearts content and enjoy every minute of cookie dough bliss:0)  And thanks goodness.........it stopped snowing!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie

Brownie Layer:
1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup (2 cubes) butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs at room temperature
1 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate chips. Stir constantly and remove from heat when chips are fully melted. In the same pot, blend in the sugar. Then add eggs, blending fully one at a time. Add flour and salt and beat until air bubbles form in the batter. Pour into a greased 9 X 13-inch pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn heat down to 325 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes.

Cool completely and then top with the cookie dough layer.

Cookie Dough Layer:
1/2 cup (1 cube) butter, softened
1/2 cup dark brown Sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in milk and vanilla. Gradually add flour and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls over cooled brownies; carefully spread over top (this can be tricky but I found the best way is to slightly wet my hands and pat the dough down gently so it doesn’t pull up the brownies). Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator.


  1. Really? Snow already? That's kind of a bummer...but I am jealous you are living in my favorite mountains. :)

  3. just made your clam chowda. my husband doesn't even like that kind of soup, but he loved yours. just thought you might want some positive feedback from an avid tester of your creations. in fact, i'm making your thai salad for a family dinner on sunday. they're gonna love it.

  4. These are amazing! Everyone I shared them with loved them. Making them again today for a family in or ward that just had a baby, I'm pretty sure this will be the highlight of the meal:)

  5. Made these a little while ago and they are amazing! Everyone I shared them with thought so too. So I figure I couldn't go wrong to add this little treat to dinner for a cute family that just had a baby for dinner tonight:) Thanks for making such awesome food.
