Cookies and Cream Swirled Brownies with Chocolate Ganache

These are my new Go-To Brownies!!! This is a picture before the ganache:

After ganache:
1 box Brownie Mix (9x13 size)
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/3 Cup sugar
10 Oreo Cookies, broken into pieces
1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons half and half

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and place into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish that has sprayed with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Stir in Oreo Cookie pieces until combined. Using a spoon, spoon cookies and cream mixture evenly over brownie mix. Using a knife, gently swirl cookies and cream into brownies without scraping the bottom of the dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Cool completely.

Place chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Place back in the microwave for 15-30 more seconds if not smooth. Stir in half and half until glossy smooth, then spread over cooled brownies. Cut into squares and serve.
