Cavity Brownies

I call these Cavity Brownies!! They are a layer of chocolate chip cookie, topped with a layer of brownie and finished with egg free cookie dough! 3 layers of bliss!

Cavity Brownies are really no joke. They are ridiculous, honestly. 3 layers of perfectly delicious (on their own) treats that I decided to smoosh together all into one over the top dessert bar! Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownies and Cookie Dough all in one place!

I feel like I’ve gone back to my roots with this over the top treat. Every layer is super basic on it’s own, but all layered together in one crazy mess is pretty epic.

Now, I know I want you to just pause before you read the ingredients list. Yes, I know there is a lot of butter & sugar involved here, hence the name. Yes, I know these aren’t cheap bars to make in terms of calories or dollar bills. But lets all throw caution to the wind today and go for it.

I will let you know this recipe makes a lot of bars. It’s baked in a 9×13 pan, but I cut them about 1- inch wide by about 2- inches long, so you will yield at least 48 bars. They’re rich and thick and a guaranteed show stopper.

There are a few steps involved here, and like I said before, copious amounts of butter, but all the layers are super easy.

First up you have a chocolate chip cookie layer. Delish.

Bake that up and then pour brownie batter on top. Yep, it keeps getting better.

Bake that and then let it chill. You will need it to be completely cool before adding the cookie dough on top! I even make these the day before cutting them.

Yes, the cookie dough is egg free, so you can eat up. I know people say eating raw flour is potentially dangerous as well, but I’m living on the edge here. YOLO or whatever.

Egg Free Cookie Dough!!

Yep, spread that on top of the chilled brownie layer. You want the brownie chilled because it will be firm, so when you spread the cookie dough it will be much easier. Trust me on this.

And then go for it.

I’m telling you these bars are over the top, and make a LOT so they’re great for a party.

But you can also freeze these too, which is a great option!

I’m going to purchase your book as soon as it hits Barnes and Noble. Can’t wait for it to come out. I was wondering if a brownie box mix would work just as good with this recipe.

Is the bottom cookie layer chewy/soft? And will it remain soft for a few days? (Being optimistic … they’ll probz last 5mins)

Think it would work well to half the recipe into an 8×8?

So I just finished baking the cookie rhen brownie and have the dough waiting till it can be put on but the cookie layer and brownie layer fill up the 9×13 pan almost to the top- and that’s without the cookie dough topping- did I do something wrong?

Do these have to be refrigerated or can they be left at room temperature?
