I'm keeping it simple with these brownies today.
Simple but still oh so good decadent. Oreo Stuffed Brownies. Well Halloween Oreos to be exact, but you can use any Oreos you want. They have so many crazy flavors now, you can seriously have a ball with this recipe.
A layer of Oreos right smack dab in the middle. Halloween Oreos, which you could make yourself of course. But then you wouldn't have brownies in a jiffy. But homemade Oreos are for another fun baking day you definitely should try.
I've used this brownie recipe before to make these brownie gooey bars before. Which if you haven't made you totally need to make them. They have an entire condensed milk in the middle of them and of course Oreos as well. So this time I left out the condensed milk, and used the fun orange Oreos they have during Halloween. Why is it that Oreos that are orange makes them totally more fun to eat?
The brownie batter for these is super simple to throw together, because it calls for melted butter and cocoa powder. The cocoa powder gives the brownies an intense chocolate flavor that can't be beat. And the melted butter means they come together super fast! Just be sure when adding the eggs to the mixture, that your butter has slightly cooled because you do not want a chocolate scrambled egg on your hand instead!
You want to cut your butter into tablespoons first so it melts quicker over the stove. You can do this step in your microwave as well. After your butter has melted, you are going to add this to your bowl of cocoa powder, sugar and salt and whisk to combine. Then once the mixture has cooled slightly, add in your eggs, and vanilla extract. Lastly, you will add your flour in. Be sure to measure your flour correctly so as not to over measure. I use the spoon and level method.
And that's it! To assemble, simply spread half of the batter into your 8x8 pan, and then place a layer of Oreos on top. From there, just simply spread the remaining brownie batter on top. I managed to sneak 16 whole Oreos inside. That means Oreos in every bite!
And of course with any great Oreo treat you must...Dunk. Them. In. Milk.
