  These cookie/brownies are amazing-the ultimate Christmas dessert.  They are the perfect combination of brownies with chocolate chip cookies in the middle of them topped with a chocolate ganache.  They are incredibly sweet so I could only eat one or two at a time, but they are so delicious.
  I took half of the batch to work and they were gone within a half hour.  I have several requests for the recipe as well.  The are rich and chocolatey.  Perfect for any chocolate lover.
