I know eat them, but I have too much.   I'm thinking of freezing them, but then wondering what to do with them.   I thought I could incorporate them into another type of dessert.  


Any suggestions???

I would freeze them. Then ideas would be to use them as the cake in a trifle, brownie/ice cream sundaes. Those are the two things that come to my mind!!

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers (about 45 wafers)
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 6 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

  • FILLING:
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups crumbled brownies
  • Whipped topping and pecan halves, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, confectioners' sugar and cocoa; stir in the butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in cocoa. Add eggs; beat on low just until combined. Gradually stir in milk and vanilla just until combined. Fold in brownies. Spoon filling onto crust. Place pan on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of pan to loosen. Cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.

What are "leftover brownies?" I've never heard of such a thing.

I suppose you could crumble them. Dry on a cookey sheet for a few days. Store in air tight jar in freezer. Then add them to future icecream.

If I ever have any extra, I just call over my bachlor neighbors and they dissappear.

 i agree with sprime, what are left over brownies, but if i had any i would cut them into smaller pieces, freeze flat and put into a bag/  great over ice cream or you could melt them down into a pourable chocolate syrup

 freeze them for later to make cake balls?  Those might be awesome!

I freeze them and just eat them frozen or thaw and eat.  You can also pulse them and make a crust for a baked dessert or a brownie sundae.

I make ice cream sandwiches out of them, then cover them with a little melted choclate.

Throw them on top of a cheesecake or cupcakes, drizzle with more chocolate, maybe even white chocolate.
