When I take these rich brownies to any get-together, I carry the recipe, too, because it always gets requested. Children of all ages love the tempting "cookie dough" filling. This special treat is typically the first to be gone from the buffet table—even before the entrees! —Wendy Bailey, Elida, Ohio

"You need to double the cookie dough portion. Otherwise there isn't enough.

Great brownies. Cookie dough is amazing. They are much richer than I expected."

"Really, really rich! Great to take to a bake sale or potluck because they cut into squares easily."

"I made 2 pans last week, 1 for a function and another for myself. The whole pan was gone quickly at the function. I also have very strict dietary restrictions due to allergies and I was able to make this without dairy, eggs and soy which was a definite plus for me. We just subbed apple sauce for eggs, and used soy free dairy free butter, almond milk and dairy free chocolate chips. I was a bit skeptical of how they would turn out but boy was I surprised how great they were. Wonderful dessert and we will be making these again soon!"

"I baked the brownies only 20 minutes so would not be dry. Still the brownie was nothing special. I doubled the filling like many other posters had stated and divided the filling adding mini chocolate chips to half and mint chips to the other half before spreading it over the brownies. It was too much filling for the amount of brownie, my fault. I did like the filling that had the mint chips in it. The glaze was too hard, thus making it hard to cut. Glaze broke up in chunks, I do not plan on making them again."
