Cookies n\' Cream Brownie Bars

Happy Friday! If you follow me on Facebook, then you know that I am out of town! My cute little family drove 12 hours to surprise  my younger sister {who was visiting my older sister} before she goes to college. Man, was her reaction priceless! We recorded the whole thing, so maybe I’ll have to post that video later! We are having a ball hanging out with my side of the family, enjoying some seriously HOT weather.

In the mean time, here is a recipe I whipped up last week that my family devoured. Literally devoured. No leftovers. {Are there ever dessert leftovers in my house? Haha….never!}

You know how on the back of the brownie mix boxes, there are directions to make cookies? Well, for this recipe, you do just that but instead of making cookies, you bake the whole thing in a square pan. Then you top ’em with cream cheese frosting and oreo cookies to give you….drumroll please…. Cookies ‘n Cream Brownie Bars! {Sounds tasty, right?}

Cookies n\' Cream Brownie Bars

Man are these good! I love cookies ‘n cream ANYTHING. I was on a s’more kick the last few weeks and now have moved onto a cookies ‘n cream kick. Do you guys like cookies ‘n cream? We {apparently} REALLY REALLY do. Crunchy, creamy, chocolate, vanilla….it’s a little bit of everything! Oh, and did I mention that these are healthy? Well they are! 🙂 And by healthy I mean easy. Very very easy! Take a look at the ingredients list and you’ll see what I mean.

So, I hope you guys find some time to make these this weekend! Everyone will love ’em! See you back in Oregon on Monday!

    Ditto the above–cookies ‘n’ cream is my FAVORITE classic ice cream flavor. These look so yummy! I’ve made cookies ‘n’ cream brownies before, but I’ve never added white chocolate chips–totally on my to-do list. 🙂

    Awwwww what a fun surprise! She will take that memory with her to college and be so grateful for it! Such a sweet family 🙂

    YUM. My sister is planning a Cookie Monster birthday for her 2-year-old boy in October. She wants to serve only cookies – but this might be a nice addition, while keeping with the cookie theme!

    Yum…these look fabulous…I love anything that has cookies and cream in it! When I first saw them I thought there was peanuts in the brownie layer and I just about died with excitement, but after reading the recipe, I realized they are white chocolate chips. Still, it looks like a must-try recipe!

    I made these brownies a couple times and they are always the first to go. My husband loves anything with Oreos and the addition of the brownie takes it over the top. I’ve been following Lauren’s Latest for at least 7 years, maybe more, and it’s very inspiring and positive.
