Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

This recipe is from the Zoo. My daughter and I made it tonight, and WOW.

Yield: 3 dozen
Prep: 45 minutes, plus chilling

1/2 c. cocoa
1 1/2 c. flour
1c. Oil
4 eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla
2c. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 c.Chopped Pecans (opt.)

Mix and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake @ 350 for 30 min. or until brownies test done.
Wait till completely cool before adding filling.

1c. Butter (softened)
1c.Packed brown sugar
1/2c. Sugar
4 TBS. Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
2c. Flour
Mix well & spread over cooled brownies. Chill until firm.

1c. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 TB. Shortening
Melt gradually until smooth. Immediately spread over filling.

Cut into small squares. Chill until ready to serve.

Tips & Tricks:
I didn't have pecans so we used walnuts. If you don't care for nuts, omit them. For our high altitude, I had to bake the brownie about 40 minutes before it was done.

Make it Healthier:
I cut the oil in the brownie in half with good results.

I couldn't resist and made these. They are really good! I also cut the oil in half, as well as the butter in the cookie dough layer and it was still good. I also added choc chips to the dough layer. So good!
