Strawberry & Golden Oreo Blondies

Strawberry & Golden Oreo Blondies:
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 cup Nestle Strawberry Nesquik
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2-4 drops red food color (optional)
2¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup white baking chips
1 (14.3 oz) pkg Golden Oreos

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 13″x9″ baking pan with non-stick spray. In large bowl, stirring by hand, mix melted butter, sugar, Strawberry Nesquik, vanilla, and red food color. Mix in eggs one at a time. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix thoroughly. Stir in white chips. Spread half the batter (about 2 cups) in prepared pan. Place Goldens Oreos in one layer over batter (I used 28). Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls over the top of the layer of Oreos and gently spread to cover all the Oreos. Bake 25-30 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

1/2 cup butter, room temp
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbl milk

Whip butter with electric mixer until light in color. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 Tbl milk. Whip. Add more milk if needed for desired frosting consistency. Spread over completely cool blondies.
