Oreo Cheesecake Brownies

Oreo Cheesecake Brownies-I mean really, do I need to go into any more detail? Just saying the words ‘Oreo cheesecake brownies’ and I start to salivate! I love brownies, whether served warm with a glass of milk, alongside ice cream or by themselves. Brownie, cheesecake and crushed Oreos are swirled together to make one rich and irresistible dessert. So rich, so decadent, so worth every calorie! Go ahead, give these brownies a try, but I warn you! Make sure you have someone to give them to, I can’t be held responsible for you eating the entire batch! ;)

Oreo Cheesecake Brownies

Yield: 16 large brownies or 24 small brownies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped Oreo cookies

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 8 inch metal baking pan. Put a long piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan, letting the parchment extend up two sides of the pan and overhang slightly on both ends. (This will make it easy to remove the bars from the pan after they have baked.) Butter the parchment.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in sugar and bring to a boil, whisking frequently; boil 1 minute. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract until combined, about 1 minute.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and salt; whisk until combined.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs until combined. Whisk in melted butter-sugar mixture until well combined. Stir in flour mixture until just combined, followed by Oreo cookies.
Spread half of brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, followed by cream cheese layer. Distribute the remaining brownie mixture in 8 dollops over the cheesecake layer and spread evenly. Swirl in with a knife or spatula.
Bake for 24-28 minutes, until brownies and cheesecake are set. A knife inserted into the cheesecake mixture should come out clean and the edges will be lightly browned.
Let cool completely in pan on a cooling rack before lifting out the parchment paper to remove the brownies.

    OH, but make sure to add more oreos! I actually put the amount it said in the mix, and then over each layer of brownie, I put an additional amount of oreos.
