What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

White Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

So, I had a package of tea biscuits that someone had left behind on Wednesday and two recipes I’d been wanting to try. I was also tasked with making dessert for a dinner we were going to. It was the perfect storm. Check it out:

First I crushed up the cookies, melted some white chocolate, and mixed them together to line the bottom of the pan.

Then I mixed up this fat-free brownie recipe. Best “light” brownie recipe I’ve tried.

After they went in the oven, I stirred up some cookie dough frosting. Wow it was hard not to eat it all with a spoon.

And voilà dessert bars to take to our dinner. They were a big hit – or at least I took home an empty plate…

yum yum yum yum – get in my face!

Here’s what you need:

  • tea biscuits (or vanilla flavoured cookie of choice)
  • 150g of white chocolate
  • 2 containers of fat free greek yoghurt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup stevia
  • COOKIE DOUGH FROSTING modified from the Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook – all the rage right now, for good reason!
  • 1/2 cup light butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • white chocolate for shaving

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat oven to 160C. Crush cookies in food processor. Melt white chocolate. Add to food processor and pulse till combined.
  2. Line 8×8 pan with foil. Press cookie mix onto bottom of pan.
  3. Start mixing up your brownies: Mix dry ingredients, add yoghurt and vanilla. Dough will be thick, persist with your wooden spoon till combined. Add to pan. Bake for 25 min.
  4. While brownies are baking, prepare the cookie dough: beat brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Mix in flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Slowly add cream and vanilla until fluffy.
  5. Once brownies have mostly cooled spread frosting over the brownies. Grate white chocolate over the top, cut, and serve.
Enjoy =)
