Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Sea Sun


You cookie dough sneakers (you know who you are) don't have to hide anymore! Try these rich, chocolatey brownies and see what I mean. :-)

NOTE: Store in covered container in refrigerator. They are great cold, but if you let them warm up to room temperature, they are even softer, creamier and the flavors of the chocolate are enhanced.

That's a good thing! :-D

Pour yourself a big glass of milk for this one, you'll need it! Sea is right, if you love the taste of cookie dough then these will be your go-to brownies recipe. The brownie layer is not too rich. But the cookie dough frosting with the chocolate drizzle really takes these brownies to a whole new level. These are just full of chocolate goodness. Delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
