These easy, fudgy Cookies ‘N Creme Brownies are studded with Cookies ‘N Creme Drops for the perfect amount of smooth white chocolate and cookie crunch.
I feel like I should update you guys on my life. Truth is, nothing too exciting has really been going on. I used to always have something to tell you. Now? Not so much. It’s been part of the reason I haven’t been posting as much. No one wants to hear about a boring life…but boring and uneventful has been my reality recently.
School work has increased by the ten-fold. Uh, HELLO TEACHERS: school should get tremendously easier for second semester seniors! Not harder. So, I’ve been doing homework, applying for a gazillion and a half scholarships, and nervously awaiting college acceptances which should be starting to arrive soon. Crossing my fingers! You should cross your fingers for me too! And…if you’re an admissions officer…let me in? Please?! :)
Alright, enough begging and complaining for the day. I promise I’ll let you guys know as soon as something exciting happens! Let’s talk brownies. Brownies filled with those new little Hershey’s Cookies ‘N Creme Drops. They melt just like chocolate into the brownies (which are super easy, fudgy, and delicious) and the little chocolate cookie pieces inside the drops add a tiny bit of crunch to the brownies, making them even more delectable. You could leave the Drops out if you just wanted a simple, delicious and terribly easy brownie, but the drops definitely add that certain something. They totally won’t disappoint. Get your butt to the grocery store and pick them up! Sorry – I said no more begging. So, please, do yourself a favor, and go to the grocery store to get them, and make these. I’m asking nicely. Thank you. I promise, you’ll thank me right back.
Cookies 'N Creme Brownies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
- Chop up the Drops or bar into chocolate chip-sized pieces. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, baking powder, and candy pieces. Spread batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook these, or you'll lose the fudgy texture. Cook until sides of the brownies just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool, cut, and enjoy!
