Cookies and Cream Brownies prove my theory that brownies are AMAZING but they often need something added to them. Like ice cream. Or frosting. Or something! I found this recipe recently for Cookies & Cream Brownies and loved the idea of it because there is a cream cheese layer on top that is actually baked in with the brownies – it’s like built-in frosting! And there are crushed up Oreos in the batter as well. The whole pan was gone within a few hours at my house – always a sign of success!

COOKIES & CREAM BROWNIES

CREAM LAYER

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

BROWNIE LAYER

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 Oreo cookies, crushed
  1. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the butter, sugars and cocoa and blend well. Add the eggs and beat for a minute. Add the flour and baking powder and stir until well combined. Stir in the vanilla and cookie crumbs.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased 8X8 pan. Spoon the cream cheese mixture on top and cut through the batter with a knife to swirl.
  4. Bake at 350 for about 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely and then cut into bars and serve. If you don’t serve them right away, store them in the refrigerator.

  1. Did not enjoy these at all. The cream cheese mixture & brownie mixture did not swirl easily, and the brownie part was super dry after being cooked. Will not make again.
