Brownie Week, Day 4

Day 4 already?! I don't think my jeans are ready for this week to be up just yet! But, skip breakfast and lunch, and probably dinner too because here is another good brownie. Save all your calories for dessert today!

Cookies and Cream Brownie

Bake your favorite brownie recipe-either from a box or from scratch

Get your favorite homemade or store bought cream cheese frosting and mix in about 10 oreos that have taken a whirl through your food processor. (it's late and the only word I could think of was "whirl", sorry)

Here's a good cream cheese frosting recipe in case you don't have one:
3 oz cream cheese
2 T butter or margarine
2 T milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 lb powdered sugar

Add all ingredients except powdered sugar and mix well. Gradually mix in powdered sugar and add more milk as needed to get the consistency you like.

Frost your completely cooled brownies and refrigerate until firm

Melt 1/2 C butter with 6 oz chocolate chips and add another 4-5 crushed oreos. Spread over oreo cream cheese frosting and refrigerate until firm.

Keep cool in fridge until ready to slice and serve.

Don't forget you have until Friday at midnight to enter to win my cookbook giveaway. Just leave a message on Monday's post telling my about your dream brownie! Hopefully by tomorrow we will have covered almost everybody's requests! Thank you!

Emily said...

Oh man, these look and sound divine! I will definitely have to give these a whirl. ;)

And PS that's SO exciting about Joel! I need to write him...I've been very bad at writing him since, oh I don't know, 2008. I'll get on that.

I love all your brownie recipes. They look nice and moist and oh so full of chocolate! Just the way I like them!!!

Katrina said...

Wow! Yum! That's all I can say. :)

Aggie said...

You are killing me! These look awesome!

Ingrid said...

I am DEFINITELY making these (this week)! I just bought some oreos.
I'm going to use your cream cheese frsoting recipe, too!

Ingrid said...

I made these last night.....can you say DELISH?

I used Em's at the Repressed Pastry Chef's Over the Top Brownie recipe and used your cream cheese and ganache recipe. (I didn't read where you talked about adding oreos to the cream cheese, so I winged it) That Oreo Cream Cheese was the BOMB!!!! After licking the brownie bowl clean we then gorged on the left over cream cheese mixture. yum-yum....I'm keeping that recipe for other things!

Thanks for the recipe! I intend to try and blog about these. I'm hoping my children don't tear into these too badly this afternoon and that I find my camera's cable!

Sorry about being so long winded!
