Is it a cookie, is it a brownie, is it a bar? I’m not sure but I do know that it’s GOOD. We’re opting to call it a chocolate chip cookie dough brownie bar for the sake of argument. My kids decided they wanted to try a hybrid dessert and voila. It’s the best of the cookie and brownie world put together. All in one chunky chocolatey bite. If you wanted to take a few short-cuts and use pre-made mixes we won’t tell!
