Birthday cake is all the rage when celebrating, however, when it comes to my little man, he’d prefer to pass. Each year when his birthday comes around, I try to come up with a dessert that will tickle his fancy. This year he mentioned cookies. Since he LOVES Oreos, I decided to up my game with easy Oreo Chocolate Fudge Brownies.
For our easy Oreo Chocolate Fudge Brownies wChocolate Fudge Brownies Recipe e had a few of the ingredients on hand including a Costco sized box of Oreo cookies, but a standard package from the grocery store would be enough. We also had Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and a partial bag of Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels.
Since I had other things to do to get ready for our family dinner, I wanted this dessert to be quick and simple. Started with a greased 13 x 9 metal pan. )TIP: I recommend using Crisco and All purpose flower because just using a spray wasn’t enough to keep my brownies from sticking. Once the pan was ready, I placed Oreo cookies in the pan (as shown below).
Then I mixed the brownie mix as directed with two eggs, 2/3 cup of vegetable oil and 1/4 cup of water. Once the batter was ready, I gently poured it over the Oreo cookies, making sure that each cookie was evenly covered.
Next I took about 12 cookies and crushed and sprinkled them over the brownie batter and added a few chocolate morsels to melt across the top while baking. Once ready, I baked in the oven at 350º for approximately 35 minutes and let it cool for 20 min. (TIP: I would let the brownies rest/cool for about 5-10 minutes, then cut them. They were hard to cut through because the edges were a little more well done.)
Verdict on the Oreo Chocolate Fudge Brownies: my family loved them. We plated them with vanilla bean ice cream and a little bit of chocolate syrup. Happy Baking!
