Ingredients

For Brownies:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 extra large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Bear Bites(crushed up)

For Topping:

  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 5 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • a heaping hand full (a little over 1/2 cup) of crushed Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Bear Bites

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13 inch pan with parchment paper, so it overhangs on each side. This allows for the brownies to lift out easily for cutting
  2. In a medium sized heat safe bowl, melt the butter and chopped chocolate together in the microwave, in 20 second increments, stirring in between. Set aside to cool slightly
  3. Add the sugar to the butter mixer, whisk till well combined
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla. Whisk till well combined
  5. Using a wooden spoon, add the cocoa, kosher salt, and flour. Mix till well combined
  6. Add the chocolate chips and crushed Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Bear Bites. Mix till combined. The batter will be super thick and you'll be tempted to eat it. Be patient!
  7. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Begin testing with a toothpick at 25 minutes. If you see a couple moist crumbs on the toothpick the brownies are perfect.
  8. Allow the brownies to cool while you make the Cookies and Cream topping.

Topping Directions:

  1. In a medium sized heat safe bowl, melt the white chocolate and heavy cream together in the microwave, in 20 second increments, stirring in between
  2. With a rubber spatula, add the confectioners sugar and crushed Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Bear Bites. Mix till combined.
  3. Pour the mixture over the brownies, spreading evenly with the spatula. Allow the brownies to cool completely and set. I chill them for a bit to speed up the process
  4. Lift the brownies out of the pan and cut into bars.

*They'll keep fresh covered, up to one week, or frozen for a few months*
