E X H A U S T E D. I’m exhausted. Mainly because developing recipes on a whim gives me anxiety and stress heartburn. I once tried some blondies in the middle of the night and they came out like a brick. Since then, I’m terrified of fucking up food. I’m a perfectionist in the kitchen. I do it right, every single time… without complaint. These Death by Chocolate Oreo Stuffed Brownies happened by coercion. My kid wanted brownies and begged until he got them. I was trying to make cinnamon rolls and he saw the extra flour as his chance to get them. But let me tell y’all something, he’s picky AS HELL which causes me to be extremely creative in my ingredient selection. According to Malcolm, this brownie needed to be moist, not too sweet, warm and soft with an elevated profile. He asked for adult brownies with at least three chocolates AND Oreos.
So, this is how the Death by Chocolate Oreo Stuffed Brownies came to be… thank Malcolm, y'all. This brownie was described as perfection, love on a two way street and sweet love. They were gone within 5 minutes. I made about four additional batches to ensure the recipe was solid and it’s really a winner. When I open my restaurant in 18 months, an elevated version of this brownie with lavender honey ice cream is going on the menu… prepare yourself!
Unfortunately, there aren’t step by step photos because I put Malcolm on camera duty and he doesn’t know how to work my camera [he didn’t tell me until the brownies were 90% done], but if you follow the directions, you’ll be fine. This is a very easy recipe! I made it simple so Malcolm can make it on his own when I’m not around.
I hope you enjoy this brownie as much as we enjoyed making and eating them. I’m quite sure this will be a hit with your friends and family! Make sure you give them time to cool down so you don’t burn the roof of your mouth and eat them with a glass of milk because why TF not! Peace and Blessings to each of you. Enjoy!
Makes 12-16 Brownies
1 c. flour
½ c. butter
½ c. granulated sugar
½ c. light brown sugar
1 c. milk chocolate chips
½ c. white chocolate chips
¼ c. dark chocolate chips
¼ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cloves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, add butter, cocoa powder and milk chocolate chips. Microwave for about 1 minute, then stir. Repeat this step in 30 second intervals until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated. It should be smooth.
Add sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla. Mix well then add in eggs. I add eggs last to give the chocolate mixture time to cool slightly. You don’t want scrambled eggs in your chocolate, trust me!
Fold in the flour until combined fully. The mixture should be even and without lumps. Fold and stir well. This is important!
Pour half of the batter into a greased or parchment lined 9x9 square baking pan. Spread evenly to each corner.
Add a single layer of Oreo cookies to the batter. Sprinkle dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips on top of the Oreo layer then pour the remaining batter on top of the chocolate chips. If you want, top with chopped Oreos.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a knife can be inserted into the middle and comes out clean.
Cool completely before cutting [it takes about 30-40 minutes in my house].
Serve with milk and enjoy!
