I'm not much of a dessert person. There are a few things that I have a weakness for, like ice cream and shortbread, but my sweet tooth isn't that developed. I do love brownies too, though, and when I saw this recipe for these brownies on What's Gaby Cooking, I knew I had to try them.
They are insanely good and I could probably eat the whole pan of them. My husband said they're some of the best brownies he's ever had. They are gooey and chocolatey, but the Oreos on top give them a nice crunch too. They are so delicious - you have to make them right now! (I'm kind of serious.)
- 10 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 15 Oreos, crushed and divided
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once it is melted, mix in the sugar and cocoa powder. When the ingredients are mixed together, remove the saucepan from the stovetop.
Either in the saucepan if you have room, or in a separate large bowl, combine the cocoa mixture with the salt, vanilla extract and eggs and whisk everything together.
Stir in the flour, chocolate chips and half of the crushed Oreos with a wooden spoon until everything is mixed together.
Use a spatula to scoop the batter into a greased 9x9 baking dish and spread it flat. Spread the remaining Oreo bits on top of the batter. Bake the batter at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
When they are done baking, let them cool before you cut them and remove them from the pan. Enjoy them and try not to go into sugar overload!
