Frosted Cookie Brownies Recipe

Frosted Cookie Brownies Recipe

Years ago, my children and I came up with these bars by combining two of their favorite treats. With a crisp cookie crust and a fluffy frosting, these brownies are the most requested treats at our house.

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough

  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
