Cookies and Cream Brownies
I am positively giddy to share these Fudgy Cookies and Cream Brownies with you! These brownies are just the thing when you have a serious chocolate craving. Not only are they all kinds of rich and fudgy, but they also have chopped chocolate sandwich cookies stirred right into the batter. They. Are. So. Good.
My most frequently baked brownie recipe is nicely fudgy with a little crunch to the edges. For the cookies and cream treatment, though, I really wanted a seriously fudgy brownie.
I revisited another favorite brownie recipe from the BoB archives to get started. Salted Fudge Brownies are one of the fudgiest brownies I’ve ever made. I started there, made a few adjustments, and whipped up the beauties you see here.
I’m going to sound like a broken record here, but these brownies are so wonderfully fudgy. It’s a bit like they’re under-baked even when they’re thoroughly baked. No crispy top or edges here. No, these are soft and gooey all the way through.
And I must give due attention to what those cookies do for these brownies. You’ll get big time chocolate flavor with all those cookies in the batter. You can use mini or regular size cookies. Just chop them into small bite-size pieces. I saved some to sprinkle on top of the brownies to give them a little extra visual appeal, but you can just stir them all into the batter if you like.
When you chop the cookies, there will inevitably be lots of cookie crumbs. Don’t forget about those! Add those to the batter along with the larger cookie pieces. You’ll notice the crunch and flavor when you bite into a piece of cookie in the brownies. But those crumbs get dispersed throughout the brownies to elevate the chocolate flavor to some superlative levels.
Besides the amazing chocolate flavor and fudgy texture, I love that these brownies are made in just one bowl. They’re wonderfully quick and easy. No mixer needed! Just grab a whisk for mixing the batter and a spatula for spreading the batter in the pan.
Fantastic fudgy brownies with big chocolate flavor… Quick and easy to make… These brownies are pretty perfect in my brownie book!
