Oh my goodness. Thank you Betty for making the recipe, and to Bakerella for putting it out there with a ganache topping. This two-in-one dessert, if you don't count the frosting, is to die for. Literally. Who knows how much sugar is in there? Besides that, it's a brilliant marketing scheme... I can just see the folks at Betty Crocker hanging around the board room asking, "How can we make them buy two of our dessert packages for a single dish?"
This is how.
J came over last night to break in the new stand mixer with a delicious cookie recipe and we just had to try this one too. I can only say that it is amazing. Mouthwateringly amazing. Stand up and cheer amazing.
So what did we do? Sampled, of course. Then I instantly packed up the rest to mail to B. He has people to share with; left to my own devices, I'd eat the whole pan, which might not sound like toooo much, but then you'd remember, "Right, it's not just a pan of brownies, but also a batch of cookie batter... topped with homemade ganache." And then you'd cry too.
They're coming, B!
