I bought a package of Oreo cookies the other day and totally forgot about them. Until recently, when I came across Lorraine Pascale's Baking Made Easy cookbook. I love Lorraine; she's so sweet and makes gorgeous food. Her recipes are all really easy and yet decadent. So I saw her Oreo Brownies recipe and had to make them. These brownies are so squidgy and fluffy in the middle, but the Oreos make a great crunch. One of the best brownies I have ever eaten! I used chocolate filled Oreos, but you can use the original ones or any kind you like.
200g dark chocolate, finely chopped
2 egg yolks
2 tea spoons vanilla extract
165g brown sugar
2 table spoons flour
1 table spoon cocoa powder
A pinch of salt
154g pack Oreos, broken into quarters
Melt the butter over medium heat and set aside. Stir in the chocolate and sit for a few minutes. Then stir together so you get a nice, melted gooey mixture. Whisk the eggs and yolks in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the sugar, but be gentle so you don't knock out the air bubbles, pour it to around the side of the egg mixture. Keep mixing until you get a stiff mixture. Now add the melted chocolate and mix gently. Next, add the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Mix it up and add a third of the Oreos, mix up until combined. Pour into a greased baking tin, lined up with parchment paper. Scatter the remaining Oreos on top and bake for 25 minutes on 190°C.
When you remove the brownies out of the oven, the middle should be still a bit gooey. Leave it in the tin to cool down. Pull the brownies out of the tin and cut into squares.
