Combine two fabulous desserts: brownies with cookies! How did this come about? A co-worker brought me in a box of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. I drove home with them in the car, went to the gym and by the time I got home they had heated ever so slightly and then stuck together. When I tried to pry them apart I got nothing but Thin Mint dust. I love Thin Mints and was not going to let this go to waste.
What to do, what to do? Mix into a cookie dough, make cookies out of cookies? Press into a pie crust? Or combine with brownies. I decided not to make the typical brownie batter and just fold it in, like my Junior Mint Brownies, but instead to make a thick, rich and chewy brownie bar. I based my recipe off Nestle Toll House Brownies and the rest is history! Cake-like brownies spread thick with a layer of heavenly cream cheese whipped with your favorite cookie crumbs and capped with a crunchy layer of chocolate.
