Cookies and Cream Cheese Brownies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

 

I’m so sorry.  If you are anything like me, Mondays are usually for repenting.  Repenting of that extra helping of dessert you ate over the weekend, or the day you took off from the gym and ate ice cream instead.  Mondays are the “I’m starting over today” day.  The “I’m going to do better this week” day.

And here I am – bringing you brownies.  And not just brownies.  Brownies that are filled with a cookies and kisses stuffed cheesecake.

I’m not taking all the blame for these, though.  A few weeks ago at our monthly family dinner, my sister brought along a bag of the Hershey’s Cookies and Cream kisses.  She said she had too many treats at her house, and that surely I could make something with them.  Challenge accepted!!

And wow – are these good.  They are definitely a step above your normal cheesecake brownies.  You get little pockets of the kisses, and you’ll want to leave the cookies in big enough pieces that you still get a little bit of crunch from them.  Sneaking a little piece of these from the refrigerator was one of my guilty pleasures this last week.  (I loved them when they were nice and chilled! :))  And I like chocolate, but it’s not my normal go-to.  But these?  They are worth that extra 30 minutes on the treadmill!
