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)

Ingredients:

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!
