Bring the mixture together with your hands, adding enough milk to make a soft dough that not too dry and crumbly.   
    Make up the dough for the white chocolate in the same way, then wrap both pieces of dough in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for an hour. After roll out both pieces of dough on a lightly floured work surface to rectangles measuring about 37 by 25 centimetres. 
    Carefully lift the white chocolate dough and place on top of the chocolate dough. Trim any rough edges neatly and roll up like a Swiss roll from one long side. If any cracks appear in the dough while you are rolling, press these back together with your fingers. Wrap the roll in clingfilm and chill again for 30 minutes 
    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease two baking sheets and lime with baking parchment. Remove the clingfilm and using a small knife cut the roll into about 24 slices.

Cookies and Cream Fudge Brownies  from cookingchanneltv.com

Its great for any event and kids love them, I am personally planning to use this recipe for my next movie night with the family and friendly gatherings.

  • 165 g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200 g dark chocolate, grated or finely chopped 
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 
  • 165 g soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 154 package of Oreo cookies (or any cookie you want), broken into quarters
  • Confectionery sugar, for dusting 
Completion Time 
45 minutes 
Steps in Making 
      Preheat the oven to 180 °C with the middle shelf ready. Grease the pan, then line with parchment paper with the paper overlapping the sides a little. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the grated chocolate.
      Let the chocolate stand until it goes soft, then stir together. And you can just put in a microwave in 25 second blasts, stirring well each time. Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla together in a bowl until they begin to get light and fluffy. Add the sugar in two additions, whisking between each.
  
      Pour it around the side of the egg mix so as not to knock out the air that has been whisked in to it. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes stiffer. Once the egg mixture is ready, pour the chocolate into it, again around the sides so as not to knock the air out.
     Sift the cocoa into a bowl and add the flour, salt and a third of the Oreos. Stir until fully combined, then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Scatter the remaining Oreos over the top, pressing them in slightly. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. The middle should be very so slightly gooey. Let the brownies cool in the pan. The top will sink and crack a little. 
     Pull the brownies out using the overlapping paper and cut the brownies into squares. Dust with confectionery sugar and you are done.
