Oreo Truffle Brownies Recipe

My sister, Rachel, introduced me to the perfect couple a few years ago.
Oreo cookies married to cream cheese and you have perfect wedded bliss!

She crunched up a package of Oreo cookie and stirred it together with an 8 ounce package of softened cream cheese.  Roll into little balls, place in fridge until really hard, and than dip in melted chocolate chips.  She called them Oreo Truffles {sigh} and they are seriously amazing!

I made them regularly in the States where Oreos and cream cheese are readily available.  These babies were always the hit of every party I took them to!  Here in Jamaica those items are a luxury and only for really special occasions.

Enough already!
Getting to the good part!  Yesterday I was thinking....ok, day dreaming... about those truffles and also {seriously} craving brownies.  So I decided that they would be super yummy together.  I played with the idea in my head and came up with this.

Oreo Truffle Brownies
1.  The bottom layer is your favorite brownie recipe.  You can use a box mix...I won't tell!
2.  While the brownies are baking you sit a package of cream cheese on the counter to soften.
  Here that takes about 5 minutes.   But I don't have a/c.  {wink}
3.  Crush Oreo sandwich cookies.
  I believe my sis uses a whole package, but I was stingy this time and only used 2 sleeves.
  It still turned out perfect.  I think this is according to your taste.
4.   You can put the brownies in the fridge if you want but they need to be completely cool.
Spread the Oreo truffle layer on brownies.
5.  I melted a 1/2 package of  semi-chocolate chips and drizzled them on the top.

Store in fridge.
Enjoy the bliss,
