"Oh and Mike likes decadent desserts like you. Like...brownie sundaes with chocolate and caramel. So if you want to whip up something- that'll prob win him over real quick ;) haha."
So read the text (more or less) that I received from my best friend a couple days before I got to see her for the first time since moving back, and before I'd get to (finally) meet her boyfriend.
Decadent dessert you say, hm?? Brownies, hmmmm?
It was my duty as a BFF to make Alex's Mike (and yes, I realize our boys have the same name. He, however, is Mike. Mine is Michael. Soooo yeah.) cookie dough topped brownies. Like...I had no choice.
Decadence was asked for and decadence was delivered!
The brownie base is really rich and dense-so delicious. And then you top it with an eggless cookie dough?
So rich and so decadent...you really only need a tiny piece (and that's coming from me!)
I also gave some of these darlings to Michael's co-workers. It's like I'm the Mother Theresa of cookie dough brownies*. Apparently they made such an impact that they're still talking about how "Michael's 'wife' makes the best brownies!" ohhhh yeah.
*(that seems sacrilegious or some such...I apologize)
The only downside? I feel like you can't taste the cookie dough enough because the chocolate brownies sort of take over. However, I voiced this concern to Michael, Alex, and Mike and they all said I was crazy.
Well...technically Mike said "Just turn it upside down so the cookie dough touches your tongue first."
We were impressed by his genius idea. To which he stated:
"I'm an engineer."
(he really is)
So there ya have it. Endorsed by an engineer.
