Oreo Cream Filled Brownies

Love this fun spin on a brownie…Oreo Cream Filled Brownies are basically two thin, chocolatey brownies with homemade Oreo Cream filling! So delish!

Sometimes ideas are just too easy. Too perfect. Too “major duh”.

That’s these brownies.

The idea for them popped into my head when I was eating lunch out with friends. Literally just popped in my head while they were in the middle of a conversation about something completely non-brownie related.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Of course they looked at me like the weirdo that I am. You’d think they would know better by now.

 

See, everyone wants to PUT Oreos in desserts..how about we just mimic their yumminess in a brownie? I already have a fantastic Oreo Filling Recipe, so I just baked a brownie on the thin side, smeared that filling all over it and topped it with more brownie.

The recipe for the brownie is super simple…

Just grab some chocolate chips…

And butter.

Melt them together.

Meanwhile beat eggs and sugar in a mixer until they become pale in color…

Add the rest of you ingredients and then pour your butter/chocolate mixture in…

You could probably use a boxed mix for this, but just make sure you buy the “Family Sized” Brownie mix.  A smaller mix might not make enough.

Spread that in a 10×15 pan.  I greased the pan…lined it with parchment and then greased it again. That way the brownie will release easily from the pan.  There is NOTHING worse than going to all the trouble and having your brownie stick and mess up the whole lot.

The batter will be thin.  It’s ok.

Bake them for just a few minutes until the center is set. And allow it to cool.

Make your filling, which is super easy.  I used shortening in my recipe, because that is more like the Oreo filling, however if shortening isn’t your thing sub in butter.  It will change the flavor, but of course it will be delicious.

Top the filling with the other half of the brownie…

  1. #1 UGH. Not even kidding, this recipe idea was written down in my top secret recipe idea notebook.

    #2 This either means you’ve been sneaking down to Arkansas and reading my notebook OR we have similar ideas from time to time. I chose to believe the former, as I have an inflated sense of self worth and creativity.

    The end.

  2. Love this recipe! What a great idea! I’m sure these would be a hit at my school’s bake sales, people love “bar” cookies, and thus I am always looking for new twists! I’ve pinned this recipe and will hopefully make it soon!

    I made these today and now I have a belly ache from eating too many. This might be one of my most favorite blog find recipes

    I actually baked these the day you posted the recipe. The beauty is that you use simple pantry items, which allows for ‘on the fly’ baking like this. The brownie recipe was fantastic – it came out really well.
    …then I sliced it up into 4 layers, threw it all into a crazy giant 10″ Han Solo silicone mold I have, and made the bestest, nerdiest brownie/Oreo/Han Solo cake EVER. Lots of love to you!

    I made these for the grandkids this weekend – AWESOME!! The hit of the day.. I used butter in the filling. Add a glass of cold milk and it is the best snack ever!!

  6. Made these today for my husband for father’s day. They are awesome! He loves sweets and really loved these. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I posted a pic on fb and already received requests for the recipe. It was easy to share, so on it went!

    I have made these twice in the past 2 weeks. They are soooo good. My sister and brother love them also. Thanks for the recipe.

    Just made these and glad I tried the filling beforehand because WOW that filling is CLOYINGLY sweet as the recipe stands. I have a major sweet tooth and I still nearly choked on it. I whipped in three more tablespoons of shortening and that made it much more like the Oreo filling. Maybe my confectioner’s sugar measurements were off, but I did follow the recipe. Otherwise these were fantastic. I don’t think a pan of my brownies has ever disappeared so fast from the counter. I already have requests for more!
