Okay guys, so I don’t know about you, but I am a girl that craves chocolate…like every single day. It’s basically an addiction, but I’ve come to terms with it. But…living with my chocolate addiction also means I’m always trying out new chocolate recipes, mixing recipes, or just breaking out a candy bar at any given time. This was one of those times I mixed recipes.
This week I was craving both Oreos and brownies. But not just regular Oreos. Remember that post around Halloween with the super easy Oreo truffles covered in white chocolate? I’ve used the exact same concept here. I could’t decide between two things I wanted so I mixed them.
Brownies + Oreo truffles = Oreo truffle brownies. Easy logic, right?
So if you have just a few extra minutes and want to upgrade your brownies, then make these! I made them and they were gone in just a couple of hours once people knew I had them in the fridge. My man loved them and was sad when they were gone.
You will need:
1 Brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker with chocolate chunks)
1 Package of Double-Stuf Oreos
1 Package of cream cheese
3-4 Blocks baking chocolate (to spread/drizzle on top)
Simply follow normal directions for making the brownies. You can do a 9×13 pan like I like to do or an 8×8. If you choose an 8×8, then just make sure to go down on the number of Oreos and cream cheese you use (maybe only use close to 2/3rds of each). If you’re using the 9×13, then just use all of the package for each ingredient.
Following the easy Oreo truffle recipe, simply separate the chocolate cookie from the Oreo cream. Put all the Oreo cream filling in one bowl and put the chocolate cookies in a ziploc bag. I double bag the ziploc and then I use a can to crush up the Oreo pieces until they are very small. Soften your cream cheese (without melting) and combine with the Oreo cream filling. Then mix in the Oreo chocolate pieces from the bag until you have a smooth, well-combined consistency. Once brownies are done baking, let cool until warm (not hot) and spread the truffle cream mixture on top of your brownies. If you let the brownies cool too much, then the truffle part will not stick well to the brownie layer.
I like to melt white chocolate in a bowl and spread it on top of the brownies to give it that extra yumminess. You can drizzle the chocolate on top instead if you desire, or just go without. I love it with. Now, because this recipe has cream cheese, you shouldn’t leave it out for more than two hours. When people are around and eating it, I keep it on the table, but then I stick it in the fridge so it stays sufficiently cold. These brownies are delicious cold or warm, and are super easy to make. Enjoy!
