Mini Brownie Cookie Dough Layer Cake

Hi guys!

I’m actually very proud to share this recipe with you. This Brownie Cookie Dough Layer Cake has been on my mind for a very long time and I’ve finally did it! Yay!

To be honest, my biggest fear was the (calori)bomb I would be dropping on you guys. I mean, look at it! It’s a complete chocolate overdose. But it is oh so good! I first thought it would be waaaaay too sweet and a freakin’ attack on your system. But this Brownie Cookie Dough Layer Cake turns out to be the perfect decadent cake any chocolate lover must try. My colleagues tried it and they went nuts over it. One of them said it was the best thing he had ever eaten in his life. And he said that about my Brownies before. So if you thought they were amazing, wait ’till you try this 😉

I know I said I was going on too strong on the chocolate but I remembered one of the things I’ve said when starting this blog. My speciality is caloribombing. And this, my friends, is pure caloribombing. I might even say caloribombing in its purest way. I know healthy is trending and everyone is doing it. But every once in a while, you NEED some serious caloribombing. If you have such a moment after being super healthy, let this one be your ultimate caloribombing treat. Be prepared for the giant sugar rush that comes next though…

Because I knew how big my layer cakes can get (remember that Lemon Blueberry Cake?) I decided to go for a mini version. I only had to make 1 batch of brownies and then cut it out with a round 12 cm diameter cookie cutter. I honestly don’t know how much cookie dough you’d need for this recipe. I had some left from a previous recipe to be honest. It also depends on how thick you want your cookie dough layers to be. I’ve kept mine pretty thin but you can make them equally big as your brownie layers or even bigger if you want.

What we need:

  • 1 batch of brownies
  • Cookie dough (only the part for the dough, not the chocolate covering etc)
  • 150 ml heavy cream
  • 400 g dark chocolate
  • saucepan
  • piping bag + tip
  • round 12 cm diameter cookie cutter

How to:

  1. Make the brownies and the cookie dough as described
  2. Make sure the brownie is completely cooled before cutting it
  3. Place the cookie cutter in 1 corner of the brownie, a little bit way from the edges
  4. Cut out another round in the oposite corner
  5. Push the remaining brownie together to cut out the third round
  6. Eat / share the leftover brownies
  7. Cut the chocolate in pieces and put in a large bowl
  8. Heat the cream and poor over the chocolate. Let it sit for about 2 minutes before stirring into ganache
  9. Set aside for a bit until the ganache becomes a bit less runny
  10. Assemble the cake: first 1 layer of brownie, then a layer of cookie dough, brownie again (take the one you made with leftover brownie),cookie dough and the final brownie layer
  11. You can spread a little bit of ganache between each layer to make it stick but you don’t necessarily have to
  12. Take a spoon or a piping bag to spread some ganache on top of the cake and make it drip a bit from the edges
  13. Let the ganache harden a bit more until it becomes perfect for piping
  14. Put the tip in the piping bag and fill it with ganache
  15. Pipe little hoops of ganache on top of the cake

I hope you guys like this decadent Brownie Cookie Dough Layer Cake!
I’ll bring this one to Fiesta Friday where I’m sure my blogging friends will love it 🙂

Have a delicious day ❤
