Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

I found a blog that I really enjoy reading on a regular basis. It is www.bakerella.blogspot.com. On her blog, Bakerella offers a lot of cute, fun, and delicious recipe ideas for others to try. I saw this recipe and had to give it a try.

You simply make your favorite brownie recipe, and your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Take big spoonfuls of the cookie dough and press it into the brownie batter. Looking good, right? Oh, it gets even better.

After they bake, you need to let them cool completely. Then pour on some chocolate ganache. (I will include my chocolate ganache recipe at the bottom of this post)

You need to allow the chocolate ganache some time to set up before you cut into it. I know, you need a lot of patience! But it is all worth it in the end. Mmmmmm.......

Don't they look AWESOME? They were fun to make, and they taste great too.

Chocolate Ganache Recipe
8 oz. Semi Sweet Chocolate (I used semi sweet chocolate chips)
3/4 Cup Heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 t. vanilla (optional)

Bring the whipping cream and butter to a boil over medium heat. Pour over the chocolate in a bowl. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk until blended and creamy. Pour over your brownies, or whatever dessert you are making. Let it set up and you are good to go. This recipe can also be used to make chocolate truffles.

That looks sooooo good! The only thing I hate about brownies is when they're gone :0)

I agree, oh so yummy looking! I think I will have to try it! This last couple of weeks I have tried making new treats for FHE...like potato doughnuts, chocolate waffle ice cream sandwiches, and I think maybe this will be next. MMM- I can't wait.
