BBQ and Brownies

Today my dear friend Steph and her husband hosted a BBQ.  If you don't know Steph here is a picture of her and her new Tatoo! Check out her Blog HERE.  She's really into different quilts right now and she talks about her cats like I do!  

Last week I received this message from Steph from Hope Sewing is Genetic:

BBQ at our place. Meat, potatoes, and BBQ provided.
Sides and desserts are potluck - sign up for something on the event wall. Bonus points if bacon or brownies are included! ;)
BYOB. We've got vodka and I think tequila, though, so there'll be that if anyone wants.
Of course I wanted bonus points. I mean who doesn't. And I'd just seen this recipe over at Eats Well With Others.

So here is the one I made:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies!

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie Dough Layer

  • In a double boiler (or note my set up) over simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter together.

  • Stir until smooth and remove from heat.
  • 005
  • Whisk in the brown sugar until it is dissolved and the mixture has cooled slightly.
  • 006
  • Whisk in the eggs and vanilla.
  • 007 (Finally one that's not blurry)
  • Using a large rubber spatula, fold the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until just incorporated.
  • 008

  • Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Refrigerate while the chocolate layer is prepared.
  • For the Chocolate Layer:
