Brownies with Oreo cookies inside and cake batter cheesecake on top is the perfect dessert for celebrating anything!

I am having a hard time believing that this week is really May.  That means summer is seriously just around the corner.  I am so not ready to be seen at the beach or the pool. (Brownie Batter Popcorn anyone?)

The other day I was cleaning my closet and putting away the sweaters in totes for next fall.  Behind all the sweaters was a pile of shorts…I just looked at them and then pulled the door closed quickly.  I briefly thought about trying some on…you know for motivation.  But then I realized I didn’t want to be sad the rest of the day.

So, what did I do?

I bakedsome brownies.  Oh, but not just any brownies.  We had a package of the Party Cake Oreos.  Those went into the brownies.  Now I could have stopped there and the brownies would have been awesome, but this is me we are talking about :-)  How long have you been reading my blog?    You know what’s coming next right?  I decided to make a cheesecake layer for the brownies.  But not just any cheesecake layer.  This one got loaded with some funfetti cake mix.   Cake batter flavored things might be my new obsession now.

Now I know what you are thinking.  What possesses someone to make such a crazy dessert?  It might scare you to know what kind of concoctions I have floating around in my head and on notes.  I love layers in my desserts, and I love texture.  These brownies have all of that covered.  They are fudgey with a light creamy cheesecake, and they have a crunch from the cookie baked into it.

These definitely won’t help with that shorts goal I have, but hey, summer is still a month a way.  We have plenty of time…

Go ahead and make some dessert to celebrate spring or a birthday or better yet…save the recipe and make it for your mom.  This would be the ultimate party cake dessert to say thank you to your mom this coming Mother’s Day.

    I LOVE OREO BROWNIES, AND I LOVE CHEESECAKE! But You forgot to list the cool whip® topping, and rainbow sprinkles, in your recipe, (as an option) did you know cool whip® came out with some squeezable frosting?

    Jocelyn, I can definitely see that crazy yum dessert combos must be floating through your brain to come up with such a creative brownie recipe. Love it! I’ve never heard of or seen those specialty Oreos here in Costa Rica, but I’m sure that the originals would keep me plenty satisfied. Who knows, today I saw the first beef jerky in a supermarket, so maybe they’ll surprise me next with these Oreos! Thanks so much for sharing these yummy brownies (and the ones pictured below too! MMMMM!) Visiting from Mop it up Monday.
