Double Malt Brownie Bars

Do you have a favorite kind of dessert?
You know, the one that is your go to when life gets rough?

Mine is brownies!
Chocolate brownies, mint brownies, blonde brownies, cheesecake brownies...
you get the point right.
I have a seriously weak spot for ANY kind of brownie.

So when I saw this recipe in an old Taste of Home magazine,
I knew this had the potential of being super delish.
It has a brownie layer, a chocolate chip cookies layer AND frosting!!!
What's not to love? :-)
(and I added some malt powder...yea, it just made the brownies even better!
I see some major baking in your future, right?

I would love to know what dessert you fall apart for:-)
