Still everyone's favorite brownies...

There is one type of brownies that I am requested to make over and over again, and it's the Oreo Brownies. Actually, I think anything with chopped Oreo cookies in them, people will love it: brownies, biscotti, cakes, fudge, ice cream. Sold!

I have already posted once on Oreo Brownies here, and this is just a slightly different version, from Kraft Kitchen, with no addition of cocoa powder, a bit less of butter and chocolate. The best part of baking this (beside the obvious of eating them) is the use of just ONE bowl for your satisfaction.

One-bowl Oreo Brownies
(adapted from Kraft)
  • 4 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped Oreo cookies (Kraft suggested 1 cup cookies and 1 cup raisins, but really, raisins???)
Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, with an inch or so sticking our the sides of pan (for easy lifting later)
Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir in flour until well blended. Mix in 1 cup of chopped cookies.
Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle with the rest of the chopped cookies. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out with fudgy crumbs (Mine only took about 15-20 minutes!!!!) Do not over-bake!!! Cool in pan, then lift out and cut in squares.

Another Oreo related thing I made last week is a Kaboum cake (A Quebec kids show) Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the cut cake, but just imagine: dark chocolate cake layers, with a filling of dark chocolate buttercream and chopped Oreo cookies. Hm.... it's a good thing I have self-control....

This was my inspiration for colors

And this is what the cake looked like

So, Oreo-up your sweet treats, I'm sure that will bring lots of cheers and hugs from everyone (And I better warn you, get used to the requests afterward)
