Friday Night Lights & Cookies 'n Cream Oreo Brownies

This is what we do on Friday nights.

We watch our daughter Madison cheer on her high school football team.

Tonight is extra special because it's Homecoming.   Madison goes to the same high school that I went to, except she goes to the newer, much nicer version.  My class is having a reunion tailgate party so we can reminisce about the old days.  I may have to dig out my Swatch watch and Jessica McClintock Gunne Sax dresses - does anyone remember those???? This is what I am bringing to the tailgate:

Cookies 'n Cream Oreo Brownies - oh my are these thing yummy!  Of course I had to try one, I couldn't have my classmates eating crappy brownies.... if there is such a thing.  Here's what you need to make them.

Thought I would save a few calories by using the Weight Watchers Ice Cream - ha ha. Actually it was the only ice cream in my freezer right now. 

Cookies 'n Cream Oreo Brownies

1 Box of your favorite Brownie Mix or your own recipe
Egg and Oil called for in brownie recipe (do not add the water)
1 heaping 1/2 cup of Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream (6 oz container)
1/4 cup hot fudge topping (chilled or at room temp)

Preheat oven & spray an 8×8 baking dish generously with cooking spray. Combine brownie mix, eggs, and oil as directed on the back of the box, but do not add the water. Add ice cream and hot fudge to the brownie batter and stir to combine. Pour half of the brownie batter into the baking dish, layer with Oreos, then top with remaining batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes or as directed on the back of the box.


  1. She is so stinkin cute. I remember those days.. my oldest Emily was a cheerleader from 4th grade to Senior. I miss those days enjoy them while you can they grow up so fast. And the brownies look awesome.

  2. Great picture! Those brownies look amazing!!

  3. Those brownies are the ultimate in brownies. I imagine it must be a great combo of textures what with the chewy brownie and the crunchy cookie in the middle.

  4. oh the swatch watch....I think I still have my old bright pink (broken) one with stretchy band in my memory box.. brownie look yummy!!

  5. The brownies look delicious and I remember wearing my clear swatch, leopard face swatch, and black one all at the same time. We also had those stretchy bands that you could place over the face of the watch! haha! Thanks for brining back warm memories!

  6. i love that you used weight watchers ice cream on those brownies..hilarious and totally something that I would do!!
    Swatch and Gunnie Sax dresses..oh yes! I had the smelly swatch, remember those? where the bands smelled fruity? so gross!
