Cookies 'n cream brownies

Cookies 'n cream is my favorite ice cream flavor in all the world. Oh, wait. Make that, my favorite ice cream flavor right alongside Ben & Jerry's Half Baked and Cherry Garcia and also the Butterfinger "tornadoes" my dad used to make for me growing up. Ok, so cookies 'n cream is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. Nonetheless, I adore it. So when I ran across this recipe (thanks, lovefromtheoven!), it took me less than a second to realize I was going to make it. ASAP.

Start by making a batch of brownies in a 9x13 pan, prepared according to the package directions.

Once the brownies have cooled, use the rim of a glass to "cut" out twelve brownie rounds. Don't toss the brownie remnants! I have an idea that I'll tell you about in a bit.

Place the brownie rounds on a serving platter or cookie sheet, and prepare a batch of vanilla buttercream frosting.

Spoon the frosting into a large ziploc bag and snip 1/4 inch from one of the corners of the bag. Squish the frosting down and through the snipped hole and cover each brownie with a layer of the frosting.

Place 12-15 Oreo cookies in a large ziploc bag and smash them. I prefer fairly big smashed cookie chunks, but if you prefer a finer cookie texture, process them in a food processor or just do a lot of smashing.

Place the crumbles on top of the frosting and enjoy!

Then grab your brownie scraps and whip together a batch of Cookies 'n Cream Brownie Chunk ice cream! And after that, eat nothing but lettuce and water for 5 days.

These look wonderful- love how you cut the brownies into circles.

Oh my gosh, these look so amazing I can't believe they're real! I love that you don't get any brownie crust, too! I know some people love the crust, but I always preferred the moist middle :)
