One of my favourite recipes to play around with is my brownie one and these never fail to disappoint! A gooey centre with chunks of Oreo cookies folded through... What's not to love?
I use the Original Oreos for these but why not do some experimenting yourself? Grab which ever flavour takes your fancy and let's get baking!
For these Oreo Brownies, you'll need:
- 125g unsalted butter
- 125g milk chocolate
- 2 medium eggs
- 185g caster sugar
- 60g plain flour
- 25g cocoa powder
- 1 pack Oreo cookies
Begin by preheating the oven to 180c/170c fan, then grease and line a 7inch square tin. Cut all of the Oreos in half and leave to the side while you make the brownie mix. They'll crumble a bit when you cut them but don't worry, it all adds to the texture.
Measure the butter and milk chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals until it's all melted. Leave to the side to cool.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. You'll know they're ready when it leaves a trail on top of the mixture as you take the whisk out. If you are doing this by hand it will take 5-10 minutes but stick with it - I promise they'll be worth it!
Once the butter and chocolate mixture is about at room temperature, slowly pour it into the eggy mix and fold in gently. (You've just spent all that time adding air to these brownies so be careful not to knock it all out). Next add in the flour and cocoa powder gently folding again until it's well combined.
Pour half of the brownie mix into the prepared tin. Scatter half of the Oreo pieces on the top and carefully pour the remaining brownie mix on top ensuring all the cookie chunks are covered. Place the remaining Oreo pieces on top of your brownies and bake for 20-25 minutes. They should be flaky but still have a gentle wobble - this way they'll be super gooey!
Run a knife around the edge of the brownies to unstick them from the sides of the tin. Leave to cool in the tin before cutting.
