I got the recipe from Baking Bites whose creation was inspired from a box of Peppermint Jo-Jo's cookies. I don't like peppermint in my sweets, so I just used regular Oreo cookies. The only thing I changed was the amount of sugar, as usual :)
(adapted from Baking Bites)
- 1 cup butter
- 6 squares unsweetened chocolate (like Baker's)
- 2 cups sugar (Baking Bites used 3 cups)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 18 roughly chopped Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350F
Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, with long sides extended for easy lifting when brownies are done without making a mess
Melt butter and chocolate in a medium large saucepan over low heat, stir occasionally. Whisk in sugar, salt and vanilla, then turn off heat.
Whisk in eggs, one at a time, making sure each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
Stir in flour and cocoa powder until everything is well blended. Drop the chopped Oreo cookies in, stir and pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for about 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs but not coated with butter.
Cool brownies in pan for about 20 minutes, then lift out by the ends of parchment paper and place on wire rack to cool before slicing.
