Cookie Dough Brownies

My husband requests chocolate chip cookies for dessert about 95% of the time.  I, on the other hand, think there are just way too many good desserts out there to stick with the same one all of the time.  Don’t get me wrong I love myself a chocolate chip cookie, but come on you gotta switch it up.  I made these brownies with the hopes of pleasing his chocolate chip cookie craving and my desire to try out a new dessert.  These were the perfect combination.  This cookie dough frosting is Amazing.  If you like cookie dough you are going to love this frosting.  It tastes just like cookie

dough, except there are no eggs so it is perfectly acceptable to eat it by the spoonful or better yet spread it on top of these thick fudgey brownies.
