Oreo Stuffed Brownies

See that bit of white peaking out? Ya, that’s an oreo. I stuffed brownies with oreos and it may be one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. My fiancé wanted me to bake those oreo stuffed cream cheese chocolate chip cookies (recipe here) but I wanted to try something new. Nothing too difficult, since we are getting summertime temperatures over here and extended time with the oven on in a steamy kitchen is not the greatest. I needed something I could make with just one bowl. I wanted chocolate so obviously you can’t get more chocolatey than brownies and the fiancé wanted something oreo stuffed.

Voila! Oreo stuffed brownies. These are regular oreos they just happen to have little stanley cups on them. The irony of stanley cup oreos in Toronto is not lost on me.

I lay down the first layer of batter in the greased pan lay out my oreos and then poured the remaining batter over top. The cookies basically melted inside the batter giving these brownies a super gooey consistency. You can’t go wrong with a good fudgey gooey brownie. No matter what time of year it is!

These brownies get nice and crispy on top and keep the gooey goodness going underneath. A perfect pairing.

Up top it looks like just a regular old brownie but when you bite into it you get all the oreo cookie excitement inside. My brother in law was over yesterday and let’s just say that when I came home the brownie pan was nearly empty. Clearly they were a hit. I’m on the hunt for more simple but delicious recipes I can make this summer. I don’t have the same patience or desire to be in the kitchen in the summertime. On a sunny warm day I want to spend every possible moment outside. I tend to make lots of cookies, things that don’t take a long time. Meals too tend to be simpler, lighter. I can’t believe that it’s June next week! I cannot wait for my first cottage trip of the summer, to swim in the lake, lay in the sun, go for boat rides! It’s my favourite time of the year!
