Cookies 'n Cream Brownies: SRC

Welcome to this month’s Secret Recipe Club!

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

1 box brownie mix
2/3 cup canola oil
¼ cup warm water
½ tbsp espresso powder
2 eggs
15 Oreos, divided

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.
