Cookie Dough Fudge Brownies
Lisa and I have gigantic sweet teeth. In fact, we take great pride that neither of us has ever uttered the phrase, "Too sweet for me." Grab a giant glass of milk because you're about to have the sugar rush of a lifetime when you dig into these rich chocolate brownies that are topped with soft chocolate-chip cookie dough. Clearly our idea of dessert isn't a bowl of applesauce.
