Cookie Recipe # 217 - Double Decker Black And White Brownies
Once you sink your teeth into one of these, you will no longer be satisfied with plain brownies. The mixture of chocolate chips and vanilla chips mixed into a layer of chocolate brownies atop a second layer of blonde brownies will delight your taste buds!
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened, 2 cups packed light brown sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 3 eggs, 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/3 cup cocoa, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 2/3 cup vanilla milk chips; drizzle-1/3 cup vanilla milk chips, 1/2 teaspoon shortening.
Instructions: Preheat ovent to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13x9x2 inch baking pan; set aside. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl; set aside.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy; add eggs, beating well. Stir in flour mixture until well blended; divide batter in half.
Stir chocolate chips into one part; spread into prepared pan. Into remaining batter, stir cocoa, oil, and vanilla milk chips; spread gently and evenly over vanilla layer.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from side of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Make drizzle: melt vanilla milk chips and shortening in microwave until smooth when stirred (start at 1 minute); drizzle over cooled brownies with the tines of a fork in desired design. Allow drizzle to harden before slicing into bars and serving.
Makes about 36 brownies.
