Don’t these brownies look delicious?? I can’t really take all the credit for it, as I came across the Cookies and Cream Fudge Brownies recipe on the BBC’s Baking Made Easy website.
If you’re feeling lazy, you could probably just toss some crushed Oreos into a pre-made brownie mix and be done with it.. Or you could make them from scratch like this:
5½ oz butter, plus extra for greasing
7 oz dark chocolate, grated or finely chopped
3 free-range eggs
2 free-range egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla extract)
5½ oz soft light brown sugar
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
A pinch of salt
5½ oz pack of Oreos, broken into quarters
Powdered sugar, for dusting
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8″ square baking pan with butter, then line with baking paper with the paper overlapping the sides a little.
- Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the grated (or chopped) chocolate. Leave to stand for a few minutes, or until the chocolate melts, and then stir together. Alternatively, you can put the chocolate and butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave in 25-second blasts, stirring well each time.
- Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla together in a large bowl until the eggs begin to get light and fluffy. Add the sugar in two additions, whisking between each. Pour it around the side of the egg mix so as not to knock out the air that has been whisked in. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes stiffer. Once the egg mixture is ready, pour the chocolate into it – again around the sides so as not to knock the air out.
- Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt and a third of the Oreos and stir until fully combined, then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Scatter the remaining Oreos over the top, pressing them in slightly. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25–30 minutes. The middle should be very so slightly gooey. Leave the brownies to cool in the baking pan – The top will sink and crack a little.
- Pull the brownies out using the overlapping paper and cut into squares. Dust with powdered sugar.
