Chocolate Chip Brownies with Cookie Dough Frosting

To start with here's the recipe for the Deep Dish Brownies that my family has been making for years!
Deep Dish Brownies
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or peanut butter chips
       Heat oven to 350*. Grease square pan, 8x8x2 [inches]. In medium mixing bowl blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs. Beat well with spoon. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt {I like to sift these ingredents together, but it's not nessicary}. Gradually add dry mixture to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chips. Spread into baking pan. Bake 30-40 mins. or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of pan and crust forms on top. [My rule of thumb is that I'd rather error on the side of 'too-gooy' rather then 'too-crispy'; check 'em often. Cool completely. [this is when you'd frost them if desired, or just enjoy as is] Cut into squares. Makes 16 brownies.
       You can also make them in cupcake tins, with the little paper cups like I did this time. Fill cups about 3/4 full [or less, if you want more room for the Cookie dough icing], and bake about 15 min. Cool completely and frost with Cookie Dough Frosting, if desired. It still made about 16 brownies.
Head on over to The Girl Who Ate Everything blog to get the exact recipe for the Cookie Dough Frosting that I used here for this combination. It's easy and soooo yummy! Exactly like eating cookie dough. I made a double batch so I could pile it high on the brownies, and have some left over for snacking... :^)
Hope you're having a wonderful Thursday!
