Brownies...cookies...or BOTH!!!

I needed chocolate. Since Bug is my new sidekick in the kitchen, she thought we should make brownies. Surprised? I wasn't either! Now, I'm a brownie lover, don't get me wrong, but I just needed something more! So, I went on a search...and found the recipe for these yummy brownies...

And they were "Oh So Tasty" and super easy! Yep, about as easy as Bug's famous Homemade Brownies!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

One package brownie mix (family size) and ingredients to mix it up as directed on the box

One package chocolate chip cookie mix and the ingredients to mix it up as directed on the box

Chocolate Ganache (recipe follows)

Mix both mixes up as directed on the boxes. Pour brownie mix into a 9 x 13 pan that you have greased the bottom of. Place dollops of cookie dough on top of the brownie dough and smoosh them into the brownie dough. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 2" from the edge comes out clean. Cool completely, and then pour ganache over the top. Then comes the hardest part--LET IT SET! Cut and ENJOY!

Chocolate Ganache

1 pkg chocolate chips

3/4 cup heavy cream

6 TBS butter

Heat butter and cream in a pan til just before boiling. Pour over chocolate chips and let set for about 30 seconds to melt chocolate. Whisk til smooth.

Oh, they are SO good, my family has almost eaten the whole pan already!
