Best Brownie Recipes: Cookies and Cream

This Cookies and Cream Brownie Recipe is so good my husband won’t stay out of it!

Kept cool in the fridge, this would be an especially wonderful brownie recipe to whip out during the hot days of summer.

These Cookies and Cream Brownies taste a lot like a cookies n’ cream cheesecake thanks to the sweet swirled cheesecake layer that tops the moist brownie base. My brownies are flatter as I did not have the 11 x 7 pan and substituted a 12 x 9. The cheesecake layer won’t really swirl but they sure do taste good! From Taste of Home.
