It’s not officially Fall, but in my mind, this past weekend marked the unofficial official start of the Fall season. As much as I adore summer, I don’t get the chance to bake as much as I would like to during the summer months. It’s too hot, I’m catching some rays, spending the day outdoors … the list goes on. One of my favorite things about Fall (it’s a long list ahh) is getting back to my routine of weekend baking. Baking is my therapy. It’s what keeps me sane and what melts away the stress that builds throughout the week. I start back on my full-blown baking frenzy around this time of year and this weekend was the kickoff. Not so lucky for my friends and family that I pawn my baked goods onto. Sorry guys! (Not sorry)
I apologize for the unoriginal title. But I mean, a dessert that has chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and cupcakes?! … you don’t really need an original title. They’re that delicious.
-1 1/4 sticks butter
-1 1/4 cups sugar
-3/4 cups plus 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-2 teaspoons vanilla
-1/2 cup flour
-your favorite pre-made cookie dough (shh, our secret! )
On top of a double boiler, melt the butter, sugar, cocoa and salt. Melt, stirring occasionally. Drop in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Combine flour.
As if they weren’t already amazing, I frosted these little pieces of heaven with cookie dough frosting. Chocolate chip cookies baked inside of brownie cupcakes topped with cookie dough frosting? Holy amaze-balls!
What better way to start your Tuesday?
