Or in other words, I-don’t-know-what-the-heck-to-call-these bars and after four days of pondering, came up with nothing.

I’m sort of enamored with them. Blinded by love, if you will.

Plus, how am I supposed to think with a mouthful of cookie? I mean brownie. I mean blondie. Err… brookie.

See… confusing right?

 

Think cookie meets brownie meets blondie meets peanut butter. Scrumptious. The first layer came from my deep dish whole wheat cookies… but, um… is definitely not wheat. Really. It’s chocolate chip cook with a little cocoa twist. Then it just gets better from there. Three words: Lots. Of. Butter.

 

I think I’m just going to leave this up to you.

Here. Go ahead and try one.

Triple Layer Chocolate Chip-Fudge Brownie-Peanut Butter Blondie Bars

makes one 9 x 13 pan

the chocolate chip layer (taken from my deep dish whole wheat cookies)

1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar, loosely packed

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon dark cocoa powder (optional)

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt together and set aside in a bowl.

Beat butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spray a 9×13 dish with non-stick spray and begin pressing the dough into the bottom. I found that using the back of a spoon sprayed with non-stick spray helped. It will JUST cover the pan and may seem thin, but it is the right amount for the bars.

the brownie layer (taken from my red velvet brownies)

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

2/3 cups chocolate chips (optional)

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add remaining teaspoon of vanilla. With the mixer on medium speed, add in cocoa, flour and salt, mixing until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Using a spatula sprayed with non-stick spray, evenly spread brownies on top of chocolate chip mixture.

the blondie layer (adapted from simply recipes)

1/2 cup of butter, melted

1/3 cup peanut butter, melted (I used crunchy, hence the nuts in the pictures)

1 1/3 cups of  brown sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

1/2 cup peanut butter morsels

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, melted butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add in eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients together, and whisk into the batter. Fold in morsels. Spread evenly on top of the brownie layer.

Set the baking dish on top of a cookie sheet and place it in the oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is just set and the middle is slightly soft. I covered the dish with aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let cool completely, then cut and serve!

I like layered things.

    Hi!

    Love the website, by the way.

    The first two layers came out lovely when I mixed them, but then I tried to make the blondie layer and it came out looking like crushed crackers rather than smooth…so I tried it again and it failed again.

    Then I just decided to put it on. They are in the oven still…and have been for 50 minutes already and aren’t done! ah! Never had an issue like this before…is it just me? My oven is set perfectly….no clue what’s going on! Help! :)

    Reply

    • Jessica — July 7th, 2011 @ 7:05 am

      Did the blondies look like that before baked? or after? Did you cover them with the foil halfway through??

      Reply

      • Grant — July 7th, 2011 @ 11:32 am

        They looked like that before I baked them…not a nice creamy batter like the picture you have above. Is there too much flour in the recipe? I don’t want to criticize, I just want to be able to make them right :)

        Also, I did put foil on halfway through…they still took 55 minutes to bake all the way. I haven’t tried them yet because they are for a party, but it was odd because of the two deviations from your recipes which are normally so spot on!

        • Jessica — July 7th, 2011 @ 11:41 am

          Ah Grant! There IS too much flour – I just went back and looked at my notes, and it’s only 1 1/2 cups. So sorry about that typo. Now I’m curious because a few people have made these and liked them and I have no idea how they turned out… haha.

          • Grant — July 7th, 2011 @ 11:57 am

            Awesome! That makes me feel much better – I’ll have to try them again sometime. Thanks for helping me figure it out! :)

    Grant, the same thing happened to my top layer but they were delish!

    Jessica, for the top layer, is it one egg or two? The recipe says one but the directions read “eggs”. I only used one and the batter was really dry but still amazingly tasty :)

    Have you made these without the peanut butter layer? I am trying to convince my son that he wants chocolate chip cookie with brownie on top for his birthday cake (camping so we don’t have room to refrigerate a cake with buttercream & don’t want it to “melt”). He’s not into the peanut butter cookie so much. How long do you think I should cook it with just two layers? And, can I use my own favorite c.c. cookie and brownie recipes?

    Thanks!!
