Cookie and Cream Cheesecake Brownies

Hello dearest readers!

Hope you had a great week!

I have another Cookie and Cream (Oreos) recipe for you. As I said a few times already, I’m not a big fan of cheesecake. You’ll see them eventually on my blog because my man likes them, but me, I’ll politely decline a cheesecake offer! But brownies with cheesecakes aren’t in the same category! Oh no, first it’s brownies people, who doesn’t love them (ok I’m sure there’s some people out there who doesn’t like brownies, I love you guys anyway)? Second, there is not as much cheese as there is brownie so it tends to taste less like cheese. Finally, well it’s just yummy like the  Marbled Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies I made a while back and these super extra yummy Cookie and Cream Cheesecake Brownies. 

I hope you enjoy!

Cookie and Cream Cheesecake Brownies
Recipe adapted from Grace’s Sweet Life and Sweet Peas Kitchen  

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • About 12 Oreo cookies, chopped (feel free to add more!)
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter and line a 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking tin with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on the two longer sides.
  2. Mix the flour and the salt in a small bowl.
  3. Melt the bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water at low heat, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Remove from heat and allow the chocolate mixture to cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar and 2 teaspoon of vanilla until combined.
  5. Add sugar to the cooled chocolate mixture and stir until combined well.
  6. Add the eggs, one at-a-time, stirring until smooth after each addition. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
  7. Gently fold the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture.
  8. Pour half the batter into the prepared baking tin and smooth the batter to the edges with an offset spatula. Add the layer of cheese mixture. Add the remaining brownie batter. Top with chopped Oreos.
  9. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 35 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely in the tin.
  11. Run a thin knife around the edges of the pan. Using the paper overhang, carefully lift the brownies out of the pan. Cut in squares.

  5. Hi, I have this in the oven right now, I found it on food gawker and it looked awesome. However I wanted to let you know that your recipe instructions are incomplete and confusing and I had to guess on some stuff so hopefully it turns out ok. you say to gently fold in flour mixture but there isn’t a step for what goes into the flour mixture. Also you never say when to put in the salt and you have the vanilla to go into the cream cheese mixture but then you say the vanilla goes in the chocolate mixture. Last thing was when I went to put the cream cheese mixture on top of the chocolate mixture it was very thick and I had to dot it I couldn’t exactly spread it on evenly on so hopefully I didn’t mess that up…

      Ugh. Sorry about that Ashley. Hope it turned out great anyway! There was two vanilla measurement in the ingredients so it appeared in both the cream cheese mixture and the brownie. But I changed the method so that it is less confusing. Also for the salt, yep my bad, I added it to the method. My cream cheese was not very thick, maybe next time you could whip it a little longer before adding the other ingredients. Thank you for your feedback!
