It’s fall, and in the South that means cool, damp weather and LOTS of baking! I have never been a huge chocolate lover (gasp), but during my pregnancy the only craving I had was chocolate. Ever since then, I can’t end my day without a little bit of chocolate. The other night I was digging in the pantry looking for brownie mix. Randomly, I saw a pack of golden Oreos. Then it struck me. What’s better than an Oreo dunked in milk? An Oreo dunked in a brownie! These Oreo Stuffed Brownie Bites will change your perspective on life.
I’ll tell you right now. This recipe will be now be my favorite go to for all the upcoming holiday dinners and parties. It’s literally foolproof, yet puts an unexpected twist on the standard brownie. Plus with all the inventive Oreo flavors being made now you can really get creative with the cookie and brownie combinations. We’re getting into the Holiday Season, so stay tuned for some new combinations I’ll be sharing soon.
If you’re like me, licking the batter bowl is the best part of making brownies. Dare I say it? Use an Oreo to scrape it off the sides! Hey, we moms (and dads) work hard and deserve an extra treat after a long day!
Just look at those layers of sweet deliciousness! The cookie stays perfectly formed in the baked brownie batter.
These decadent brownies were probably one of the best ideas I’ve had in the kitchen to conquer a craving. Apparently my husband thought so too, there were only two left the next morning. I just couldn’t let you live without this super easy, yummy recipe to score some extra brownie points with your kiddos, spouse, and even the next door neighbor. Happy baking! 🙂
- one baking sheet
- disposable baking cups
- your favorite boxed brownie mix
- pack of Oreos
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
- Mix ingredients for brownie batter following the directions on the box. brands may vary.
- Arrange baking cups onto the baking sheet. I love these foil ones for convenience. You can also use regular cupcake liners and cupcake tin, or even skip the liners and use a properly greased cupcake tin. It's all about what you have in your own kitchen.
- Fill the baking cups about ⅓ of the way with batter.
- Place Oreo on top of batter, and press lightly so batter in thecup surrounds the side of the cookie.
- Top the baking cup with more batter to cover the cookie. Make sure not to overfill the cups. You want to leave space for the batter to rise.
- Bake per your brownie box instructions, slightly decreasing the time for the individual cups versus a full pan of brownies.
