Blue Ribbon Recipe

Whether you like milk chocolate or dark chocolate brownies, you get the best of both worlds in every bite. The two dense brownies are fused together with a fudge-like icing. The mini chocolate chips are a little chocolate bonus. This is truly a brownie lover's dream dessert. Rich, decadent and quite a treat.

Note: We followed the instructions on the boxes for cake-like (not fudgy) brownies. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Dark & Milk Chocolate Brownie Layer Cake
