Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

I first discovered this crazy good treat from RecipeGirl on Pinterest, which I admittedly have become quite addicted too.  I spend a little too much time pinning and repinning recipes and pics of my dream home -who says I won't have a beach house in the Hamptons one day? :)

I'm a huge fan of raw cookie dough and definitely eat my share when I make cookies, I really just can't help myself.  Yea, I know, raw eggs and all that, but come on, I know you do it too.  When I saw these I just had to see what they were all about.  I was not disappointed!  What a great  idea...and much safer (no eggs!).  And OMG, on top of a brownie?!  Brilliant.  By the way, do not try to eat these without a glass of milk...yea, they're THAT good.        

Makes 16 brownies 

1 box of Brownie mix (your choice, but NOT Family Size - should fit in no bigger than a 9x9 pan)
Eggs, Water and Oil - use amounts according to brownie mix
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Prepare brownies according to instructions of the box.  Let cool completely. 

To prepare cookie dough:  Cream butter and sugars together with an electric mixer.  Add milk and vanilla and combine.  Mix in flour until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  

Spread the cookie dough batter onto the completely cooled brownies.  Refrigerate until the dough is really firm (otherwise you will not be able to cut these, they will be too mushy).  You can also freeze them to speed this process up.  Use a sharp knife and cut into squares.  I kept these in the fridge and ate cold.
