Ultimate cookies and cream brownies

Ultimate Cookies and Cream Brownies

My dear friend, Ingrid, has some recipes up her sleeve that can make you weak in the knees.  These Oreo-frosted-Oreo-brownies are the perfect example of her mad genius, especially if the creamy filling is your favorite part of an Oreo.  I was going to take the quick route and use a boxed mix, but I completely forgot to pick one up once I had those Double Stuf Oreos in my cart.  All logic seemed to have deserted me at the time, so when it came to baking these babies up, I turned to my tried and true ultimate brownie recipe.

Those ultimate brownies are just about the best and most versatile brownies you can find, and they make a whole 9×13″ pan of goodness.  This time, I added a bunch of chopped up Double Stuf Oreos, then topped them with Ingrid’s cookies and cream frosting.  Yum on top of yum!

Recipe:  Cookies and Cream Brownies

One batch of Ultimate Brownies, with chopped up Oreos stirred in just before pouring them into the baking pan.

Ingrid’s Cookies and Cream Frosting:

4 c. powdered sugar
8 Tbsp. butter, room temperature
2-4 Tbsp. heavy cream or milk
approx. 16 Oreos, chopped into tiny pieces

Combine all frosting ingredients (except the Oreos) and mix until light and fluffy.  You may need to add a bit more heavy cream to get a spreadable consistency.  Gently stir in chopped Oreos.  Spread frosting evenly over cooled brownies.  (Optional idea:  top with ganache!)

    These were soo good!! Very sweet, but I guess you can expect that with the 4 cups of powdered sugar. Kids (all 6 of them) loved them. Thanks for the great recipe!
