Homemade Brownies with Reese’s Pieces Cookie Dough Topping

Let me start off by telling you that this dessert left my boyfriend drooling.

Reese's Cookie Dough Brownies
He told me the brownies were “perfect” and I definitely think I won a few girlfriend points with this one.

Now enough bragging.

Okay, maybe not.

I thought these up one day when I was super hungry and craving dessert, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted something chocolaty, something that resembled a cookie, or something peanut buttery–alas, this dessert was born. All three in one! It’s like a miracle dessert. But better.

I’m a sucker for cookie dough batter and I always end up eating most of the cookie dough before I even bake the cookies, and that’s why I love this recipe: Because it encourages you to eat the cookie dough! Egg-less cookie dough is the stuff of dreams.

Now this recipe includes both the homemade brownies and the cookie dough–but if you wanted to use boxed brownies then just follow the cookie dough recipe and plop it on top (although I do encourage you to make the brownies from scratch because they are to die for.)
