Brownie Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting

10.04.2013

Brownies and cookie dough were made to be together right? They are two of the greatest desserts of all time so why not pair them together, because together they create a rich, melt in your mouth, decadently delicious dessert. These are probably something you shouldn’t eat every day, but every now and then we all need a good splurge. And if we are going to splurge it had better be good right? Like something with cookie dough good. I’m constantly craving cookie dough and chocolate in any form, so these satisfied that craving perfectly. Two fudgy, soft, perfectly chocolatey brownie cookies sandwich the moist amazing, fluffy and sweet chocolate chip cookie dough frosting to create a tempting cookie that’s destined to please.  Enjoy!
