Dreamy Oreo Brownies

Because calories don't count on the weekends, I made these for game night tonight! These Oreo brownies are sinfully delicious, paired with a glass of champagne... they are just plain heaven! I'm obsessed with everything on the cookies and cups blog! Check her out if you need some new dessert ideas, if you are on a New Year's diet, do not enter her site! haha.

Dreamy Oreo Brownies
1 box brownie mix (I used Pillsbury Fudge Brownies) – with ingredients to prepare them according to the package directions
1 (16.6 oz) package Oreo cookies divided equally into 3rds all coarsely chopped
1 (8 oz) tub of Cool Whip thawed in fridge
1 8 oz block of cream cheese softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Prepare brownie batter according to package directions, folding in 1/3 of the chopped Oreos.
Bake according to package directions, until a toothpick inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean.
Let brownies cool completely.
Meanwhile in your mixer bowl beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until combined and smooth.
With a spatula fold in the Cool Whip and another 1/3 of the coarsely chopped Oreos.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of cooled brownies.
Now in a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips and the vegetable oil on medium power for 1 minute.
Stir and repeat in 30 second increments until melted.
When chocolate is melted spread evenly over the cream cheese layer.
Now sprinkle the remaining Oreos on top of melted chocolate.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
Cut into squares.

just made these. They are very rich to eat by themselves but would be great on top of a scoop of ice cream.

Do you think I could use my own brownie recipe (it's really easy and delicious) instead of a mix. They look so good and I try and stay away from mixes?

Ashley said...

Dianne, I think you could use your own brownie recipe and make it that much better! Good luck!
