Ben & Jerry’s top product merges chocolate and vanilla ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough and fudge brownies. The fudge brownies are baked, while the cookie dough is unbaked—hence the name. Half Baked also comes in frozen yogurt and peanut butter versions—the latter replacing vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookie dough with peanut butter ice cream and peanut butter cookie dough, respectively.
