Tried and True: Cookies and Cream Brownies

Who doesn’t love brownies and to meld those brownies with these Oreo-esque cookies – even better.  I decided to make the brownies from scratch and it was so simple and I adapted Lorraine Pascale’s recipe a bit.  The cookies are scattered throughout the batter and with the extra chocolate deliciousness that I may or may not have snuck in there – oh my heavens!  These brownies will bring a smile to your face!

On to the recipe:

Gather your ingredients

Resist the urge to lick the spatula

Don’t forget the cookies – they are vital

Off to the oven – don’t worry they will puff up.

Hot out of the oven – let them cool.

Grab a glass of milk and cozy up with one or two of these – I promise – no judgement.
