Sunday’s here and you know what that means? BAKING DAY, not that i need a day for that but still a good excuse to get busy in the kitchen and the fact that it was my boyfriend’s late birthday celebration.
Brownies are without a doubt the best choclatey dessert you can have when you’re in dying need for sweets. But what if you added some cream cheese to it? And maybe I dunno, some oreos?
So I had him over for lunch (made spinach and cheese cannelloni which you can find here )
And dessert time came 😀
– 3/4 cup brown 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 cocoa powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2 large eggs
– 1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped Oreo cookies
2- 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.
3- In the bowl, beat together cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract until combined.
4- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and salt; whisk until combined.
5- 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. (Batter may look a bit thick but don’t worry you didn’t mess it up)
7- Bake for 24-28 minutes, until brownies and cheesecake are set. A knife inserted into the mixture should come out clean and the edges will be lightly browned.
Let cool completely in pan on a cooling rack before cutting the brownies.
