Two-Tone Fudge Brownies

If you've read my previous post, you all know that I'm in love with cookie dough! Now that I have discovered that you don't always need to bake cookie dough, I try to find a way to enjoy it without having to bake it all. This amazing brownie recipe comes from my favorite cooking magazine "Taste of Home". The brownies are fudgy and moist like cake which is the way I like brownies. My husband loves thick and chewy brownies and many of you are probably like him, too. But I'll tell you, you won't be disappointed with these brownie cakes. The cookie dough on top of them is definitely the highlight of this dessert. They make enough to feed a crowd and of course, everyone loves these brownies... How can they not?
