Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies. Every bite of these chocolate, dense, fudgy brownies are rich and luscious. They are topped with icing that tastes just like chocolate chip cookie dough.
Truly a decadent treat!
When the boys and I make cookies, we eat so much dough we barely have enough dough to bake the actual cookies. With that in mind, I decided to top brownies with cookie dough for Lincoln’s birthday ‘cake’.
It was a big hit!
The brownies are very dense and fudgy. They would be great without any frosting. But, more is more especially for a birthday dessert!
I do love a good brownie. I’ve shared these brownies with you previously: Rocky Road Brownies, Salted Caramel Candy Brownies, Praline Brownies, Three Musketeer Brownies and even Red Velvet Brownies and Peppermint Red Velvet Brownies.
For the icing, I omitted the eggs in traditional chocolate chip cookie dough. It didn’t affect the great cookie dough flavor.

Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies
I recommend using mini chocolate chips. I did not, but they would be so much better instead of the big chunk of chocolate. Also, any flavor chocolate, dark, milk, bittersweet would be good. My boys prefer milk so that’s what I used.
You could do so much with this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting. First of all, how about icing your favorite chocolate cake with it? A tall three layer cake would be stunning. Try sandwiching it between two double chocolate cookies instead of ice cream! Finally, swirl it through ice cream. Chocolate or vanilla ice cream with a hefty swirl of cookie dough would be spectacular!
