Cookies & Cream Brownies

Cookies & Cream Brownie
     Over the weekend, my mom and I were having a phone conversation about desserts we loved. I asked her if there was any sweet in the world she could have then and there, what it would be. She quickly replied “brownies.” She mentioned that she had a boxed mix in the cupboard that she has been wanting to make, but I told her not to bother. I had an idea for some brownies that had been swimming around in my head for awhile that I wanted to try.
     I wanted to make a flavor-filled brownie with chopped Oreos and white chocolate chips. I used the brownie base from my grandmother’s Mississippi Mud recipe, substituting the cookies and chips in place of the walnuts. The addition of the Oreo cookies add a pleasant crunch to the moist brownies, and the white chocolate chips give you a sweet punch of vanilla flavor. My husband ate these plain, but when I brought them to my mom’s house she and my dad both put canned chocolate frosting on top. Frosted or not, everyone came to a consensus: these cookies and cream brownies are a keeper!

  1. I’m sure she’ll never ask for the boxed kind again after eating your wonderful brownies.  You just can’t beat homemade, especially a kicked up homemade version.

  2. Oh my!  Anything with Oreos and we’re all over it!  These look wonderful!

  3. Yummy! I am adding this to my recipe box!
