A Trick for your Treats - Brownie Edition

Saturday, October 23, 2010

How's that box of brownies doing on your shelf? I came up with a way to jazz up those brownies and just in time for Halloween. I love to buy seasonal treats like cider donuts, peeps, you know - the things you have an excuse to eat at least once a year. I recently bought some Halloween Oreos, simply to dunk in a glass of milk. But I saw someone use them as the base of a cupcake and thought, hmmm - what other ways could I incorporate Oreos into a dessert? Here you have it folks, a Trick for your Treats - Brownie Edition.

Trick for your Treats - Brownie Edition


1 brownie mix prepared by instructions on box
12 Halloween Oreo cookies


Preheat oven according to box instructions. I used an 8x8 glass pan, thus preheated to 325*F.  Grease pan and set aside.

Prepare brownie mix per box instructions and pour a thin portion of it into the pan, spread evenly.  Place one layer of Oreos over brownie mix evenly.

Pour the remaining batter over the cookies and spread evenly. Tap the pan on the table a few times to make sure the brownie mix fills in all the cracks.

Bake per box instructions though, keep a close eye for the last 10 minutes of baking.

Once baked, take pan out of the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.  Place a sheet of waxed paper or a cutting board over the pan and invert onto a table.  Flip again so the right side is up.  Cut into square pieces, per desired size.

If you just can't get enough chocolate, melt 1 cup chocolate chips in the microwave with 1 Tbls. butter and pour over the brownies.  Feel free to decorate with sprinkles or any other edible decorations. Your guests (or family members) will be surprised to find a crunchy Oreo inside!
