A Brief History of Brownie Bombs
Brownie bombs have been a beloved dessert for years, celebrated for their rich, fudgy centers and indulgent coatings. Originally conceived as a twist on traditional brownies, these bite-sized delights have evolved over time to incorporate various flavors and textures, catering to the diverse palates of dessert enthusiasts worldwide. The addition of cookie dough elevates the experience, introducing a creamy, buttery element that perfectly complements the dense richness of the brownie.
Ingredients for No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs
For the Cookie Dough:
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 Tablespoon milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour (raw or heat-treated)
- 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
- 2 containers bite-size fudge brownie bites
- 1 package chocolate Candiquik or chocolate candy coating
- More miniature chocolate chips for garnish
1. Prepare the Cookie Dough
In a stand mixer bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar using the paddle attachment until creamy, approximately 1 minute. Incorporate the milk and vanilla extract, mixing thoroughly. Gradually add the all-purpose flour (or alternative flour) and mix until a soft dough forms. Fold in the miniature chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
2. Assemble the Brownie Bombs
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Take one bite-size fudge brownie and gently flatten it with the palm of your hand. Scoop a rounded tablespoonful of cookie dough onto the center of the flattened brownie. Flatten another brownie bite and cover the cookie dough ball with it, pinching the edges to seal. Repeat this process with the remaining brownie bites and cookie dough, arranging them on the prepared baking sheet.
3. Freeze the Brownie Bombs
Once assembled, place the baking sheet in the freezer and allow the brownie bombs to firm up for approximately 20-30 minutes. This step ensures that the bombs maintain their shape during the coating process.
4. Coat with Chocolate
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate Candiquik or candy coating according to package instructions until smooth. Using a fork, dip each frozen brownie bomb into the melted chocolate, ensuring an even coating. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off before returning the coated bomb to the baking sheet.
5. Garnish and Serve
While the chocolate coating is still wet, sprinkle the brownie bombs with additional miniature chocolate chips for added texture and visual appeal. Once all the bombs are coated and garnished, allow the chocolate shell to harden completely before serving. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer for prolonged freshness.
