Cookies-n-Cream Brownies


I'm kind of nervous y'all...

I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled out tomorrow (I know, how old am I right?!) I've been pushing it back, and I finally had to just buck up and do it. Ugh...

Soft foods for a week? Don't you know I'm a FOOD BLOGGER... She didn't seem to care. But I've never been under anesthesia, I've never even had surgery!

I briefly ran through the "what if's" with my husband. I mean, what if I'm allergic to anesthesia and puff up like a lion seal? He promised he'd still love me.

Or what if I'm under and they make the split second decision to pull all my teeth?

I think at this point he wasn't really listening... but HONESTLY PEOPLE! This is scary stuff....

So I had to make something extra delicious before I'm stuck eating cotton swabs for the next week...

These didn't photograph as well as I wanted, I thought the red would be pretty for the Holidays, but it doesn't really give off that generic "cookies-n-cream" vibe.

Oh well, they taste delicious and whip up fast.

Happy Monday everyone!

For the Brownies:
1 box brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker fudge)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

For the Frosting:
4 oz softened cream cheese
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon milk

Around 10 crushed Oreos

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 11x7" pan.

Make your brownies according to the package directions and toss in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into your prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
Let the brownies cool completely.

With a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter on medium speed until creamy. Add in remaining ingredients and beat (feel free to add more or less milk to get your desired consistency).
Frost the cooled brownies and sprinkle with crushed Oreo's.
Cut and serve!

Enjoy everyone. Promise me you will eat delicious food for the next couple days... Just don't tell me about it :)

  6. I hope you are recovering okay from getting those teeth pulled. I had it done in high school, and the first couple of days were bad. Maybe put these yummy brownies in a blender? :) I hope you'll link this post up to our Holiday Cookie Recipe Swap at http://thedomesticatedprincess.blogspot.com/2012/11/cookie-recipe-exchange-week-3.html.
