I made a batch of birthday brownies today. The house smells so good. I have a friend who is an Oreo Cookie fanatic. He loves anything Oreo. He loves a good brownie too, so I think he will be pretty happy with these.
You can use your favorite brownie recipe as a base or you can use a boxed brownie. I would much prefer to make my own brownies but I have to admit that a good boxed brownie is pretty good. In this case, I used the Duncan Hines Fudge brownie mix as my base. These brownies are very rich by themselves, but when you add the Oreos……….WOW. Personally, I prefer my brownies simple and basic with nuts. But if you like Oreos and you like brownies, you will love this. Oh! and be adventurous. You don’t have to limit yourself to just the chocolate oreos. They have so many flavors now. I think the peanut butter oreos would be fabulous.
1 boxed brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines in this recipe)
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water or coffee
approx. 10 Oreo cookies, cut up (If you want to cut down on some of the sweetness, scrape off the white filling)
Heat oven to 350. Lightly spray the bottom of an 8×8 square baking dish.
In a bowl, mix the dry brownie mix, eggs, oil and water. Don’t get crazy with over mixing.
Spread the batter into the baking pan. Sprinkle the cookie pieces all over the top and gently poke some of them into the batter.
Bake for approx. 28 minutes, depending on your oven. I would check the brownies after 25 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the batter. They should not be real gooey, but you dont want to overbake them.
Allow to cool for about an hour. Yep, you gotta wait. Cut into squares.
