Chewy Chocolate Cookies & Cream Cookies!

This past weekend I baked Jaclyn @ Cooking Classy's Chocolate Cookies & Cream cookies.  I had planned to try these before Christmas but didn't manage to get around to it.  Though I did try 2 other cookie recipes from Jaclyn (Peppermint Brownie Cookies & Marshmellow Brownie Cookies) and they were both devine! 
So, I have to fess up, these aren't for those trying to cut calories but they are soooo good (I am channeling Mr. Food here, folks!)  My DH, who is a professed chocoholic, fell just a little bit more in love with me after he had these....seriously girls, they put a spark in his eye!

Chocolate Cookies & Cream Cookies

1 (18.3 oz) pkg brownie mix 
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 recipe vanilla cream frosting, recipe follows
12 Oreos, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a cookie sheet  with non stick spray and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together brownie mix, flour, brown sugar and salt. Add in eggs and milk and stir with a large spoon. Add in melted butter and vanilla and stir until well blended. Spoon dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet (you can fit 12 per sheet). Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting. Once cool, frost each cookie and sprinkle with chopped Oreos.

Vanilla Cream Frosting

4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
6 Tbsp heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 salt

In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer, whip together sugar, butter and cream until fluffy. Stir in vanilla and salt, blend well.
