Oh boy… this dessert is like some sort of heavenly trifecta. It combines three classic baked goods – chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, AND brownies – in one amazing confection. And we must say, while those three are certainly great on their own, they might be even better when they’re together. Add a cold glass of milk on the side and it’s hard to imagine anything better.
A couple of prepackaged mixes make quick work of this dessert. A fudgy brownie layer forms the base, a creamy cheesecake layer makes up the middle, and dollops of chocolate chip cookie dough top it all off. This treat is a total showstopper at bake sales and potlucks because everyone seems to agree… why have one dessert when you can have three at the same time?
