Rich! Rich! Rich! I don't know how else to describe this dessert. I am known for my lack of patience in baking, and this recipe made up of convenience foods was a hit as a treat for some friends. I warn you to cut small squares, as you probably won't be able to finish a full brownie. They are that sinful.
These are a must try! Very good and addicting!
I made these for a baby shower a few weeks ago and I'm still sending out the recipe as it is requested so many times! I chopped up some almonds I had on hand instead of pecans and they were just as good. Also, I made my own cookie dough as the store I was shopping at didn't have the premade stuff. I just globbed it on and had about 2 cups left over to freeze for later. AWESOME recipe!!
