Check these babies out!!! These are outrageous! Sinful, decadent and sooooo delicious! This recipe is a combination of a few different recipes. I originally saw these on...I think "Lovin in the Oven" blog. I took her idea but used my own recipes. I've always loved the Ghirardelli brownie recipe. It's in the Ghirardelli cookbook but also listed on the back of their sweet ground cocoa can. So you take any brownie recipe (even a box mix if you'd like), bake it in a 13x9 inch pan, let the brownies cool and then top them with the eggless chocolate chip cookie dough recipe below. I also melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips with a touch of shortening and piped some on top of the raw cookie dough. The whole combination is unbelievable to me! Let me remind you, I love chocolate chip cookie DOUGH more than I do the actual baked chocolate chip cookie. So this recipe is pretty much next to perfect. Some folks said "Oh they are sooo rich!". (me, rolling my eyes). There is nothing too rich for me. I can eat half the damn pan. No really, I can.
I know this photo is out of order but some for some reason, I couldn't cut & paste it properly. But anyway, this was the cookie dough I spread on top. It was the perfect amount for a 13x9 inch pan. I used Guittard milk chocolate chips in it.
