COOKIES & CREAM BROWNIES
Cookies & Cream Brownies combine a rich, fudgy brownie recipe with a sweet cream cheese layer that is swirled on top! There are Oreo cookies in the brownies and also on top for more cookies and cream deliciousness!
- 1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 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 (+ 5-10 more Oreo cookies crushed for the top)
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the butter, sugars and cocoa and blend well. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for a minute. Add the flour and baking powder and stir until well combined. Stir in the Oreo cookie crumbs.
Pour the batter into a greased 8X8 pan. Or an 8X8 pan that is lined with parchment paper on the bottom and up the sides.
Spoon the cream cheese mixture on top and cut through the batter with a knife to swirl. If you want to add more Oreos to the top, crush them and sprinkle on top of the brownies.
Bake at 350° for about 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely and then cut into bars and serve.
