Cookies and cream is a fabulous flavour combination! The easiest way to get this combo is in cookies with a layer of cream sandwiched between 2 layers of chocolate cookie and you can chop these cookies and add them to other things, like ice cream, cheesecake, etc. One of my favourite ways to enjoy them is in blondies, which are basically brownies without the chocolate in the batter. (Blondie batter is basically the same as chocolate chip cookie batter, so they are basically giant chocolate chip cookies in bar form!) These blondies have chopped cookies and chopped cookies and cream bars mixed into them for even more cookies and cream flavours. I like to use the chopped cookies and cream bars in these but another great alternative is a combination of white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips! Cookies n cream bars are amazing any time of the year and they are always a welcome addition to your holiday cookie plater!
Cookies and Cream Blondies
All of the flavours of cookies and cream in amazing bars with huge chunks of cookies and chocolate!
- 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cups brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup white chocolate chips (or cookies n cream candy bars, chopped)
- Mix the butter, sugar, and brown sugar, followed by the eggs, and vanilla extract.
- Mix the flour, salt and baking powder.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet before gently mixing in the cookies and chocolate.
- Place the batter in a greased (or parchment lined) 8×13 inch baking dish and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until the top looks just set, but still jiggles a little, about 18-22 minutes, before pulling out of the oven and letting it cool in the pan for 30 minutes.
Option: Add a half teaspoon of coarse salt for a ‘salted’ version.
These look so delicious and tasty! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try! So excited!
This recipe was easy to make and turned out really well. It’s a nice change from overly sweet brownies. My sister likes the gooey middle pieces while I get the crispy edges. It’s a win for everyone.
ha, love these, fun mash up of brownies and cookies, thank you!
Okay so I literally just made these the other day and let me just say….whew! These things are sinful! The only thing I did different was I made an Oreo crust for my Blondies and I covered the crust in white chocolate chips for some added texture. They turned out amazing!
Help! I literally cooked these for twice as long as the recipe said and they are still undercooked in the center. I need them for a bake sale tomorrow! Going to try putting them back in the oven on a lower temp (even though they have cooled) but posting here in case anyone has any wisdom to share. Thanks!
Hi Allison! I’m sorry to hear that they did not work out! Here are a few questions to help figure out what happened: What size of pan did you use? Approximately how thick were the bars in the pan? Were you using the toothpick coming out clean method of testing for done-ness?
I made these and followed the recipe exactly except I reduced each sugar to 5/8 cup because we sometimes find dessert recipes to be “too sweet.” These blondies were fantastic according to everyone and so easy to make! Thanks Kevin!!
What is a “cup” of Oreos? How many cookies?
Great recipe for the holidays!
Is the brown sugar light or dark?
P.S. Maybe Allison needs to check her oven temperature with an oven thermometer. Some oven are off slightly! Maybe??!!!
I like light brown sugar here but dark brown sugar works as well!
