Since I didn’t want the leftover brownies from the super delicious cookies & cream Oreo brownies to go to waste (well, I really don’t want them to go to waist either), tonight my daughter and I whipped up some quick and easy individual Oreo brownie trifles.

Cookies And Cream Brownies By Love From The Oven

Let me just say this now… these are to die for.    My mom made these a few years ago, called them Cookies and Cream Brownies, and they instantly became my favorite brownie ever.   I know people have been putting chocolate frosting on brownies for years, but as much as I love chocolate,  the vanilla buttercream […]

I’m not Bakerella (Queen of the Cake Pops), but I whipped up some cake pops at my daughter’s request for her birthday. I have to be honest, I think I prefer Oreo truffle pops a bit more, but my daughter was mighty happy with these, and she is the birthday girl.  Here’s how to make […]
