Cookies and Cream Stuffed Brownies are rich, fudgy brownies with a layer of white chocolate Cookies and Cream bars inside!
Lately I have been in a bit of a baking rut. Like sometimes I feel like I have just about made everything in the entire world ever. After 8-ish year of blogging and over 1,200 recipes sometimes ideas are scarce. Which brings me to today’s recipe.
It’s certainly not reinventing the wheel, but I have never made Cookies and Cream stuffed brownies, and you know what? I thought you might like them. That’s the entire thought-process that went behind this totally delicious and seriously easy tray o’ brownies. Sometimes that’s all it takes.
I used a version of my Oreo Bombshell Brownie Recipe. It’s a really great base brownie that you can doctor up in tons of ways! In this case I got busy with some white chocolate Cookies & Cream Bars!
Just divide the brownie batter and layer half on the bottom on your pan, a whole layer of candy bars in the middle and the remaining batter on top.
I mean if easy isn’t your thing, you’re out of luck today.
The hard part is waiting until they cool to cut them up. Now, I’m not one to judge going in face first to a tray of warm brownies…no ma’am. BUT if you want pretty layers…well, just give it a few beats before slicing.
