Oreo Brownies!

Oreo Brownies

Brownies are such a decadent treat by themselves – rich, dense, fudgy and deeply chocolatey. The Oreo in these brownies makes them even richer. If you love Oreo, you will LOVE this brownie. I was expecting a distinct Oreo effect here, but the cookie beautifully melds with the brownie. So, when you bite into the brownie, you get a softer stuffing inside. This brownie is Love in itself. It has to be eaten to be understood!

I came across this brownie idea on an FB baking group. The brownie picture put up there actually had a cookie dough base, topped with some brownie batter, topped with an Oreo layer topped with more brownie batter! And that is what I prepared for. But I used my own recipes for all these layers. The brownie batter was based on this recipe which I’ve used earlier for the cupcake brownies. For the chocolate-chip dough part (not in pics here), I used the same dough used in the Butter Raisin Cookies but used chocolate chips in place of raisins.

I baked these in a 6-cup muffin pan plus a 5×5 inch pan. Thus, I got 6 brownie cupcakes and 4 large square brownies from the pan. The cookie dough was sufficient only to line the base of the cupcakes. Sadly, I’ve got no pictures of the three-layer cupcake brownies since they got devoured by my nephews soon after the tray was removed from the oven! I managed to click the square brownies because I’d hidden that pan and gave it to them only the next day.

Turn an everyday lunch or dinner or tea-time or even breakfast into a wonderful little family party with these beauties!
