Cookies and Cream Brownies

I made these recently for a Eid party I attended, and it got rave reviews. In fact, my husband's nephew said these are "brownies from heaven" and "I'm abdicating my throne as brownie king." This was actually a problematic comment because he makes the BEST brownies but decided to hand over the torch to me, so his mother asked me to post this recipe so he can make it on his own.

These are rich and fudgy, with a smooth frosting and crispy cookies. Don't be surprised if the plate is licked clean :) Since the base is a brownie mix, it takes all of 5 minutes to whip these together and throw in the oven!

-1 brownie mix, prepared as directed on box (9x13 pan size)
-4 cups crushed oreos (about 1/2 of a package)
-1/2 tub vanilla frosting (about 1 cup)
-1/2 tub chocolate frosting (about 1 cup)

To make
-Prepare brownie mix as directed on package, and stir in 2 cups crushed oreos.  Bake as directed (minimum baking time) and remove from oven to cool.
-Spread chocolate frosting evenly over cooled brownies. Spread vanilla frosting and sprinkle remaining 2 cups crushed oreos.
-Cut into 24 squares and serve.
-Enjoy :)


  1. I made these and everyone loved them. They are very moist and the layered frostings taste really yummy. Best of all, they are easy to make :)

  2. Your husband's nephew speaks the truth, these are from heaven!

  3. Not your standard brownie, that's for sure! They are so fudgy and delicious, I need to get them out of my house but I'm too obsessed to share...

  4. is there a healthier substitute for frosting?

  5. Perhaps you can try low-fat cool whip instead of the white frosting. If you do please let us know how it turns out :)
