  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. (See Kitchen Tip regarding disposable foil pan.) Set caramel pouch from brownie mix aside. In large bowl, stir brownie mix, water, oil and egg with spoon until well blended. Spread half of batter in pan.
  • 2
    Break cookie dough into small pieces. Sprinkle pieces evenly over brownie batter in pan; lightly press into batter. Squeeze pouch of caramel from brownie mix to soften. Cut 1/4-inch tip from corner of pouch; squeeze caramel between pieces of cookie dough, using entire pouch. Spoon remaining brownie batter over caramel and cookie dough.
  • 3
    Bake 34 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • 4
    Frost with chocolate frosting. For brownies, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Make clean-up easier by lining the pan with foil before pressing in your dough. Leave a little extra length on either side to serve as handles to help lift the brownies out of the pan once they are cool.
  • Cool cookie dough brownies completely before frosting and slicing brownies so the frosting will set, and your slices will be clean and exact.
  • Turn these cookie dough brownies into an even more decadent dessert. Before serving, top brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and top it all with chocolate syrup. Heat up your brownie in the microwave for about 30 seconds before adding the toppings for a softer brownie.
  • Extra brownies can be frozen for up to 6 months; just wrap them tightly in foil and label.
  • Turn the tables and instead of using cookie dough in brownies, use a Betty Crocker™ brownie mix to make brownie-inspired cookies instead! We love this chocolate-filled recipe for Brownie Mix Cookies that is easy to make and perfect to share.
