The cookie dough is not quite as dense as some I’ve had but is a little bit more like frosting. This means that you can’t leave them out at room temperature for a long period of time and they probably won’t ship well.  But seriously these won’t last that long.  If you just use cookie dough to top these, they won’t stay together. If you want them to get the brownie cookie dough combination in every bite then the topping needs to be more frosting like. It’s still pretty thick and the mini chocolate chips are just the right touch. The brownies also have chocolate chips folded into the batter so you get chocolate chips in both places.
