Sometimes having nothing on hand in my kitchen after a weekend away, forces the creative juices to flow. Especially, when there is a bit of pressure in dinner guests and limited time to prepare.
the Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Brownie Cups were born!!
My family may have thought there was a stroke of genius, but really it was just throwing together that which was on hand and baking them in individual servings using the cute Mary & Martha large baking cups. Presentation always makes things taste even better, right? But I’ve got to say, anything cream cheese, oreos, and brownies has got to be good.
Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Brownie Cups
Begin with your FAVORITE brownie mix, prepare as directed.
Fill your super cute Mary & Martha large baking cups about 1/4 inch. With my brownie mix this made about 15-18. Use more if you want more of a thick brownie layer.
Next, mix 2 1/2 cups of milk of your choice with an OREO instant pudding mix and CHEESECAKE instant pudding mix. Mix well and chill while brownies are baking.
When brownies are done baking and cooled, take prepared pudding and add 1 tub of COOL WHIP to pudding mixture.
Then, dollop pudding/whipped topping mixture on top of each brownie cup. And for a nice added touch, some crushed OREO crumbs. (optional)
