These are just stupid. In a good way! But they're stupid. I mean, is it really necessary to make brownie batter and then decide to stuff a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough in between the dark chocolate goo? No, it is not necessary, it is stupid. And brilliant! Stupid brilliant. Do I sound like Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes yet? Right then. Bloody hell, what a dumb treat.
Ok, let's push my attempt at dry, British humor aside and discuss how good these really are. Incredibly rich, difficult to eat more than a few bites, but delicious! And very simple to make. Just throw together your favorite brownie (boxed or homemade, mine were Ghiradelli), then your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (I used this one), and layer away. I went brownie batter, cookie dough, brownie batter, but the creative possibilities are endless! Bake as directed on the brownie box (although you might need to add 5 more minutes) and enjoy your stupid, dumb treats.
