Welcome to this month’s Secret Recipe Club!
This month, I was assigned Danielle’s blog, Mostly Food and Crafts. Danielle is a stay at home mom of two who enjoys cooking and crafting with her children.
Danielle also has so many fantastic recipes on her blog! I actually have several others on the menu for this week, but the one I decided to share is a delicious sweet treat!
I’ve been wanting to make Cookies ‘N Cream Brownies for quite some time, but never got around to it. Then, the very day I received my SRC assignment in my e-mail, I just happened to have some leftover cream cheese frosting in the refrigerator (from this Dresden Files Birthday Cake) and a box of brownies in the pantry. It was very serendipitous!
The brownies were just as delicious as I thought they’d be and a perfect use for that leftover frosting. Thank you, Danielle for a delicious recipe!
Cookie ‘n Cream Brownies
Adapted from Mostly Food and Crafts
1 box brownie mix
2/3 cup canola oil
¼ cup warm water
½ tbsp espresso powder
15 Oreos, divided
½ recipe cream cheese frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 13x9 inch pan with non stick spray.
Place 10 Oreos into a mini food processor. Process until finely crushed.
Stir together the warm water and espresso powder.
In a large bowl, mix together the brownie mix, oil, eggs and water mixture until well combined. Stir in the crushed Oreos. Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 24-26 minutes. Cool completely.
Once cooled, spread the frosting over the brownies. Then, coarsely crush the remaining Oreos and sprinkle over the top. Store leftover brownies, covered, in the refrigerator.
