Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

I am one of those people who would rather eat the cookie dough than the cookies. These brownies not only allow you to do this, but they are one of the most decadent and rich desserts I've ever made. 
Egg-less cookie dough on top of a brownie made from scratch - seriously does dessert get better than this? They are so sweet and rich that you will want to share them to make sure you don't eat them all yourself! Keep the leftovers in the fridge - they are best a little chilled.

For the brownies:
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the cookie dough
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8X8 inch pan. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once melted remove from heat and add sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Blend together. In a separate bowl mix together flour, cocoa, and salt. Add dry mixture to the wet and mix well. Pour into greased pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. 
Allow to cool for about one hour. Meanwhile for the cookie dough combine the butter, sugars, milk, and flour until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the cookie dough on the cooled brownies. 
Chill the brownies overnight or until cookie dough is firm. Cut into bars and serve.
