Oreo crunch brownies

“My tastes are simple. I am easily satisfied with the best. “- Winston Churchill

This a great brownie .


Thick , fudgy brownie = good

Crushed oreos = good

Good + good = Great

See?..its simple mathematics.

Like I have told you before , I never tire of making brownies. The only thing I don’t like about brownies is cutting them neatly ( or trying to cut them neatly).

Now , why would anyone crush up cookies and mix them into a brownie batter ? Because I am telling you to ! Actually me and the million others before me who have made these or similar brownies .

Any brownie lover would be crazy about these. The batter comes together in a saucepan with a whisk in a matter of minutes. It is rich and everything a brownie should  be. The chopped up oreos lifts it up a notch , the pieces playing peekaboo through the cut edges and adding a crunch to break up all that fudginess. You could keep the oreos whole or in large chunks if you want the bits to be more visible. Regardless, this recipe from “simply decadent brownies” is going into my ever increasing list of favourite brownies!

Ingredients
  1. 120 grams or about 2/3 cup dark chocolate
  2. 165 grams or ¾ cup unsalted butter
  3. 3 eggs , at room temperature
  4. 200 grams or 1 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1 tsp vanilla
  6. 125 grams or 1 cup all purpose flour
  7. ½ tsp salt.
  8. Around 10 oreos or sandwich cookies
Instructions
  1. Grease the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch square pan with butter or non stick spray. You could also line the pan with parchment paper or aluminium foil. Preheat oven to 180 C .
  2. Chop up the oreos. You could keep them as big as you want. I chopped each cookie into 4 quarters . Keep aside
  3. In a medium saucepan , melt together the butter and chocolate (both chopped to small pieces).
  4. Mix in the sugar .
  5. Mix in the eggs , ONE BY ONE , until each is properly incorporated.
  6. Mix in the vanilla.
  7. Add the flour and salt , and mix in until you cant see the flour anymore.
  8. Fold in the chopped oreos.
  9. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 180 C for 28-30 minutes. A tooth pick inserted in the centre will come out with a few moist crumbs .
  10. Cool completely in pan for atleast an hour before slicing.
Notes
  1. These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days and in the refrigerator for upto a week
  2. For cleanest cuts , cool brownies completely and use a sharp knife. Wipe the blade between cuts.
  3. My measuring cup is 240 ml

This brownie ticks all the boxes for me : thick , super fudgy , rich , deeply chocolatey , cracked top. Add to that they are loaded with oreos , I had to resist polishing them all off myself.Not that I ve ever eaten a pan of brownies myself. I havent. Trust me  .

  1. i tried this for selling at our society summer market sale and it was a hit. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. Hi ,
    Thanks for such a awesome recipe
    Wanted ask you the dark chocolate used would be compound or couverture .I have Callebaut callets semi sweet ones ..can I use them ??
    Also ,you only melt chocolate and butter in a sauce pan over a flame and then once done cool and then add sugar and other ingredients ??
    Also can I mix with a hand mixer ??
    You have a lovely blog
    Thanks again

    1. Hi Dimple… you can definitely use the Callebaut . it would be great. I have baked this with both compound and couveture. And after melting the butter and chocolate, you can whisk in the sugar immediately. After that , you can wait for few minutes if you want . But i just whisk in the egg immediately. As we whisk it in, the mixture doesnt get a chance to cook the egg..!
