Cookies ‘n Cream Brownie Pie

This past weekend some friends invited us over for dinner and I brought dessert. I wanted to bake something but didn’t have much time as I’d spent the day shopping for a dress to wear to an upcoming Christmas party. So on my way home, I pulled up Pinterest on my phone and looked through my Sinfully Sweet desserts board.

That’s where I found the recipe for this yummy Cookies ‘n Cream Brownie recipe. It’s more like a brownie pie with a yummy chocolate sauce on top. I only needed to pick up a few ingredients from the grocery store and then I was on my way to making this delicious and easy dessert.

The brownies are made with Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Cream candy bars and after it bakes it’s topped with sweetened condensed milk and a layer of mini chocolate chips. So yummy and it only took about 10-15 minutes to assemble, 17 minutes in the oven and then a minute to top it with the chocolate sauce. Easy!

Okay, so here’s how you make Cookies ‘n Cream Brownie Pie:

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz (1 1/2 of King sized bars or 4 regular size candy bars) Hershey’s Cookies n’ Cream candy bars
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1/2 C. butter (1 stick)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 C. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 7 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 C. mini chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree and grease a 9″ pie plate
  2. Melt candy bars, sugar and butter over medium low heat
  3. While ingredients are melting, lightly whisk 2 eggs in a small bowl
  4. Once all is melted, turn off heat and whisk in eggs and vanilla
  5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, mix until well combined
  6. Pour batter into pie plate and bake for about 17-20 minutes (or until fork comes out clean)
  7. After the brownies are cooked, immediately pour the sweetened condensed milk all over the brownies and add the chocolate chips
  8. Let cool and enjoy!

These brownies were equally good the next day warmed up a little and enjoyed with a cup of coffee. Mmm! You just have to try these!

Baby Gender Reveal Cake Pops

These Baby Gender Reveal Cake Pops were such fun creating! You may be wondering, “what in the heck are Baby Gender Reveal Cake Pops?!” So let me first explain, the idea of having a Baby Gender Reveal party is catching on quickly I think. Basically, instead of finding out the sex of your baby at the time of the ultrasound, the nurse will put the ultrasound pictures and also a note whether the baby is a boy or girl in an envelope. Then the parents-to-be take the envelope to a bakery so they can create a cake that reveals what the baby is. On the outside of the cake (or cake pops in this instance) you can’t tell what the baby is, but the inside cake will either be dyed pink or blue…girl or boy. How fun is that?!

So one of my best friends is preggo with her second child and thought having a Baby Gender Reveal party would be fun this time around. She asked me to create cake pops for the party and I happily obliged. Oh what fun!

I made these cake pops with a dark chocolate coating to ensure the inside color would not be revealed ahead of time and then decorated them with adorable blue and pink polka dots. Each cake pop was individually wrapped and tied off with either a pink or blue ribbon. I wasn’t about to give any hints to spoil the big surprise!

The cake pops were displayed in a glass vase that the Mom-to-Be set out at the Baby Gender Reveal party. I loved making these cake pops and would love to make some for you too. Just shoot me an email at AnneRains@gmail.com and we’ll coordinate the details.

As you can see, this friend is having a girl. Which is pretty perfect since her first was a boy; how great to have one of each! I’m ecstatic for her and will be spoiling that little girl since I only have a son as of right now!

Bridal Luncheon Cake Pops

I had the awesome privilege of creating cake pops for my friend from Small Group Bible study. She wanted them for her bridal luncheon yesterday. Her only requests were that I incorporated purple in them, that they would be pretty and that they would be individually wrapped so she could set them at each place setting.

It was so much fun making these elegant cake pops. My goal was to make these cake pops pretty and classy, so I did a vine design on them. I was proud of how they turned out and she was excited about them when I delivered them to her. Each pop was individually wrapped in a clear wrapper and tied with a purple bow.

In case you’ve never experienced the deliciousness of a cake pop, they are coated in sweet vanilla (or chocolate) candy and inside is gooey moist cake. They are completely customizable with your choice of cake flavor, icing flavor and candy flavor too.

Cake pops are the perfect size treat and are great for any occasion. Bridal showers or bridal luncheons, birthday parties, baby showers, anniversary parties, engagement parties, baby gender “reveal” parties….really anything you can think of can be made even more special with cake pops.

I serve the Metro Atlanta and Greater Atlanta, Georgia areas…especially Dacula, Suwanee, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Loganville, Grayson and Snellville. Please contact me at AnneRains@gmail.com if you have a cake pop need.

Have a blessed day!

Cookie Inspired Cake Pops

Not too long ago I had a request to make Oreo cake pops…without hesitation I said ‘yes’ because they sounded too yummy not to do. After delivering that order (it was a wife getting them for her hubby as an anniversary treat…great gift idea!) I was inspired to create other cookie inspired cake pops.

My family was celebrating fall birthdays the following week so it was the perfect excuse to try them out. Believe me, they were willing guinea pigs…I mean who doesn’t love gooey chocolate cake covered in vanilla candy and loaded with your favorite kind of crushed cookie?! Heaven on a stick if you ask me.

I’m now offering a cookie inspiration line of cake pops…your choice of Oreo, Chips Ahoy or Nutter Butter. Email me for details: AnneRains@gmail.com

Oh boy…what have I done? Now I’m craving cake pops!

“Crack” Brownies

Well, these brownies certainly live up to their name! They are extra rich in flavor and very addicting. I came across this brownie recipe on Pinterest (naturally) and quickly decided to make them for my boss’ birthday because they sounded so yummy.

These brownies have practically everything in them except the kitchen sink…which means a). they will appeal to pretty much everyone (if they don’t enjoy these something’s wrong with them!) and b). you aren’t going to be able to eat just one!

What’s not to love about a brownie covered in Reese’s cups, marshmallows and peanuts? And that’s not all! They are also smothered in a creamy chocolate peanut butter frosting that gets a slight crunch from Rice Krispy cereal. Oh. My. Word!

I bet your mouth is watering just thinking about these…I just ate lunch but I’m getting hungry typing these words. I’m off to the grocery store in a bit–it may just be time to make these little jewels again today!
