If there is one dessert I can’t resist, it’s a brownie. Plain brownies, frosted brownies, candy stuffed brownies or brownies with ice cream. If you can dream up a brownie, there is a 100% change I’ll be addicted to it.
These Oreo Brownies are 100% from scratch and have Oreo cookies sprinkled on top of the brownies, but also stuffed inside. We used traditional Oreos, but can you imagine these brownies with mint Oreos or one of the fun flavors they come out with at different times of the year? Get creative!
A brownie is fudgy when there is a high fat to flour ratio. You’ll notice that besides cocoa powder, it only has ½ cup of flour. But it has 2 eggs, over ½ cup butter, and chocolate chips added right into the batter. This is going to make for a very fudgy brownie.
You’ll also notice there is no baking soda or powder to make the brownies rise. These keeps them fudge-like instead of cakey.
Our traditional homemade brownie recipe calls for melting the butter and sugar together on the stovetop. This recipe uses a shortcut and melts the butter and sugar in the microwave. Watch it closely and mix every 30 seconds. Once the ingredients are combined, you can stop warming it.
Add the eggs and vanilla, then mix in the flour.
We line an 8×8 pan with foil ( you could also use parchment paper) so the brownies come out easily and cut perfectly.
Allow the brownies to cool before you cut them. They are going to be very, very gooey. If you like nice cut lines, you’ll have to be patient and let them cool!
These brownies have whole Oreos baked inside the batter, but also chopped Oreo pieces baked in the top. Aren’t they the prettiest?
