Oreo Brownies

There is something really lovely about a weekend to myself.  I know that sounds ridiculous, but until you’ve lived in a city centre flat (one freezing bedroom, one tiny sitting room and a bathroom with no soundproofing), you can’t possibly understand how nice it is to just have a bit of time to totally spend on your own (or as I call it, quality time hanging out with me.)  I love Beardy Fiance, but the demands of sharing a small space with someone (and a cat) means that it rather limits my opportunities to create a total mess, eat at odd hours, sleep at weird times and binge watch The Almighty Johnsons.

I also got the chance to do some catching up on some baking and working on some recipes – like these great Oreo brownies.  Now, I cheated a bit.  In order to get them nice and flat, I stuffed them with cookies and creme Pop Tarts, rather than proper Oreos.  Perfect.

Oreo Brownies (adapted from the brownie recipe provided to me by The Velvet Moon Baker)


175g Dairy Milk Oreo bar – you could use regular chocolate, but this makes it super Oreo-ish

175g unsalted butter

250g caster sugar

3 eggs

40g cocoa powder

75g plain flour

DSC_1643Melt together the chocolate and butter – set aside to cool to room temperature.

DSC_1646Mix together caster sugar and eggs.

DSC_1644Add in chocolate and butter mixture.

DSC_1647Sift in cocoa powder and plain flour.  Pour half of the mixture into a square, lined baking tray.  Place two Pop Tarts (or Oreos) on top of the mixture before placing the other half on top of the Pop Tarts.

DSC_1648Bake at 180C for about twenty to twenty five minutes, until you can stick a fork in it and it comes out clean.

DSC_1649A must for Oreo lovers!  I’ve already been sending these out to Oreo fans – and they’ve definitely become quite a hit!
