Recipe / Cookie Brownies

I wanted to make something extra special for Father’s Day, but I couldn’t think of what. Finally, I decided:  combine two desserts! This cookie-brownie combo makes a delicious mix of chocolate that is sweet but not too sweet. Plus, they are in ramekins. What is not to love???
