Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

7:40 AM

Thank heavens for Betty Crocker! A while back I found on Bakerella's site these amazing brownies that originated from the back of a cookie mix package. Bakerella made them even better by coating the top with a thick layer of chocolate ganache rather than plain 'ole chocolate frosting from a can, and let me tell you, that really was the icing on the cake! As if the brownies, bombarded with cookie dough in every bite, wasn't delectable enough, the rich, messy ganache will really send you into a sugar coma and drop you off at heaven's front gate! I was really, really heart broken sending off the rest of the brownies off to work with my husband, but my trading gym time for baking time has really done a number on my figure the past few weeks, so I had to bid adieu and sulk for the remainder of the day. Needless to say, I was head over heals with these brownies, I hope you will be too!

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
Chocolate Ganache:
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup heavy cream
