If you’re looking to up your brownie game, you can easily do so by making the following recipe!
I’ve taken a simple, delicious, chocolatey brownie and have layered 3 (Hindsight should have been 4) Cookies n Creme bars in the middle of the batter. It’s that easy. And so good! Requires 3 eggs, and make sure that they’re room temp! We melt the butter at the first of the recipe so that it’s cool enough that it won’t cook the eggs when we go to mix it in. You don’t want scrambled eggs in your brownies. Also for the chocolate part, you can melt whatever you have on hand; bakers chocolate, chocolate chips, a leftover chocolate bar, etc. Just make sure to melt it at 10-15 seconds at a time in the microwave. If you like a gooey brownie, bake for about 15-20 minutes (check with tester at the 15 minute mark) or go for 20-25 for the cakey texture.
