Cookies, brownies, and ice cream are all staple sweets in my dessert book, and this delectable brownie bowl recipe combines all three. The main base is a moist brownie with a little crater that makes a cute and convenient bowl. In the middle, raw cookie dough is plopped in and nestled into the bowl. The whole dessert is finally topped off with your favorite ice cream and any topping of your desire, like chocolate and sprinkles. The recipe is perfect for events, with friends, or you know, all for yourself. You can also cut down on the prep time by using brownie mixes and chilled cookie dough from the store.

Embrace this glorious dessert and eat with caution, because it will blow away your tastebuds.
