It’s finally flip-flop weather in South Carolina! My long lost friend, the sun, is back and that makes me so happy.

And when I’m happy, I want brownies and these aren’t just any ordinary brownies. They are special enough for celebrating the arrival of spring.

Super thick Cookie Dough Brownies are brownies for cookie dough lovers. On the bottom is a fudgy layer of brownie. To make it easy, I used a box of Ghirardelli Brownie Mix.


Once the brownies are baked, a layer of cookie dough is spread on top. It doesn’t get cooked, but don’t worry. It doesn’t contain eggs. The cookie dough has bunches of mini chocolate chips throughout.

These Cookie Dough Brownies are finished with a layer of chocolate glaze on top. Because you can NEVER have too much chocolate.
