Cookie Dough Truffles and Triple Chocolate Cookie Brownies

I was going to visit a friend over the weekend and she is always commenting on the food I make so I decided to bring her a couple treats for her!

Cooke Dough Truffles-shared from What Megan's Making
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar(I didn't pack it)
2 1/4 cups ap flour
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips(mini preferred)
1 bag chocolate melts or chocolate chips

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy(about 2 mins). Add in milk, flour, and vanilla, beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Chill dough for about an hour.

Melt chocolate chips or candy melts in microwave for 30 second intervals until melted ans smooth.

Roll dough into balls and dip into chocolate. Allow chocolate to harden.

**The dough really did taste like regular cookie dough! The dough itself had a strong sweetened condensed milk taste, but once the outside chocolate later was added they were truly indulgent!

Triple Chocolate Cookie Brownies-shared from Apples to Zucchini
For the brownie layer:
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup ap flour
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix together eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar. Add in dry ingredients and mix throughly. Place in 9x13 inch pan.

For cookie layer:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 egg
1 stick butter
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips(or reg. chocolate chips)

Cream together butter and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Beat in flour and cocoa until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. *This is a very stiff dough so if you aren't using a stand mixer it will take some elbow grease! Break dough into pieces(about 1 tbsp size) and place on top of brownie batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 mins, maybe longer!

**The orinal recipe states to bake it for 35-45 mins. I baked for 30 mins and I think they were even over cooked a little bit. The brownies were still a bit gooey, but I think if they were a bit more gooey they would even better. This will depend on how you like your brownies...they were STILL marvelous and everyone I shared them with thought they were wonderful and very decadent! I did use white chocolate chips to help break up some of the reg. chocolate flavor a bit, it worked out great!
