I had some people over and we just had to have chocolate. These caught my eye as it contained two of my favorite things. Brownies and Oreos. What more could a person want in life?
These were awesome and there were NO leftovers!
Oreo Stuffed Brownies
Adapted from Food for Thought
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. espresso powder, (optional)
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 package Double Stuff Oreos
Melt butter in s sauce pan, add sugar and stir to combine. Or microwave butter and add in sugar. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly, just until it's hot, but not bubbling, it will become shiny looking as you stir it. This will dissolve more sugar and will make the top of your brownies shinier. Set aside.
Beat the eggs, cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and vanilla until smooth. Add the hot butter/sugar mixture, stirring until smooth. Add the flour and chips, again, stirring until smooth.
Spoon half the mixture into a 9 x 13 in pan that has bee sprayed with cooking spray. Place the Oreos in even rows across the batter, you should be able to fit most of them. Pour the remaining batter over the Oreos and gently spread to the edges of the pan. Bake for about 35 - 40 minutes. Cool and devour.
