Is there such thing as too much of a good thing? We have to admit that, sometimes, the answer is yes. For instance, what if you’re craving both brownies and cookies? You can’t make both — think of the volume of ingredients required, the dishes, and the vast quantity of sweets you’ll have on hand after making two full batches of dessert. Well, Martha Stewart has a clever solution to solve your sweet-toothed woes. She combined brownies and cookies into one chocolatey dessert, so you can get the best of both sweets with only one set of ingredients to mix and dishes to worry about.
