If you hang out here much at all, you may know my family has a fondness for anything that involves cookie dough.  Like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough  Cupcakes we made for Heather’s birthday a few years ago, and the ever favorite, Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies.

So a few months back, when I ran across the Donna Hay Brownie Cookie recipe my first thought was I HAD to make those with cookie dough filling!

This recipe is the perfect marriage of the Cookie Dough Cupcakes and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie.  Cookie Dough frosting sandwiched between a soft chewy brownie shaped like a cookie!

You may also know, I’m not afraid to use a box mix.  So I used my favorite Ghirardelli Brownie mix, but if you’d like to try Donna Hay’s recipe, I hear it’s pretty amazing too!

I know these aren’t the prettiest cookies, but I can assure you,  they are heavenly and oh so rich in chocolatey goodness. A bit indulgent, which was probably a good thing, or I would have eaten a lot more than I did!

The problem with writing a food post AFTER the food is gone, it makes me regret that I don’t have any more in the house…..luckily these are very easy to make.  I could whip up some more and send to school with Allison, who, by the way, tells me several of her friends are now following her mom on Instagram and they want to know why she’s not bringing some of this food to share with them!  So Jack…..if you are reading………just say the word, I’ll send a batch to the band room! 😉
