Boyfriend Brownies

Happy Monday, ladies! This blondie is oh so happy for a two day work week! And then it's on to food, family, friends, and shopping!

So, I've been on a bit of a Pinterest pinning spree. It's become an addiction really. I should probably seek professional help. But while pin-binging, I came across this delightful picture...

Ladies, feast your eyes on the Boyfriend Brownie (also known as the Brookster, I personally like Boyfriend Brownie better). I knew right away that this amazing concoction of a chocolate chip cookie nestled in a brownie would be heaven on my taste buds, so I clicked the link looking for the recipe. You could imagine my disappointment when the link took me to the Williams-Sonoma website. Buy an almost $20 mix to make these gems.... yeah, no thanks! So I took to the kitchen and brought out my Martha Stewart side.

And when I say my Martha Stewart side, I really mean I grabbed a box of brownie mix out of a cupboard and some Nestle Toll-house cookie dough out of the fridge.

I'm not lying when I say this is the EASIEST recipe everrrrr! Put in a greased cupcake tin one scoop of brownie batter and one scoop of cookie dough. Bake for 11-12 minutes at 350 degrees, and viola! You have yourself some delicious Boyfriend Brownies!

So, mine didn't turn out as perfect as the picture on Pinterest, but I can promise they were unbelievably delicious!
These would be the perfect dessert to bring to a holiday party, cookie exchange, or let's be honest...the perfect snack while watching a cheese-tastic Hallmark Christmas movie. I'll be making these to bring to Justin's family Thanksgiving.

What is your favorite non-traditional holiday dessert?

Did that twenty bucks provide a way for you to bake them that perfectly like the picture?
