Do you like brownies?


I've got a yummy recipe to share with you today!  Not too long ago, my daughter and I ate lunch at our favorite deli; the owner is known for her scratch-made goodies...cookies, bars, 5 layer cakes, cheesecakes, etc.  We decided to share an Oreo brownie...it was sooo good!  I told Ivy that she could probably Google a recipe so we could try them at home.  She was able to find a recipe and we tweaked it a bit...here it is:

Ultimate Oreo Brownies

1 box of your favorite brownie mix (for 9x13 pan), prepared per package instructions
12 Oreos, quartered
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add Oreos and vanilla to brownie batter.  Transfer to prepared pan and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Check them early, so they don't overbake.  Cool completely.  Prepare frosting.

Buttercream Frosting

6 tablespoons softened butter
3 tablespoons cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat with mixer until smooth.  Frost brownies.  Top with crushed Oreos, followed by a drizzle of hot fudge ice cream topping.

Note: The picture is from the first batch that my daughter made.  I made the second batch and crushed the Oreos for the top a bit more.  Also, I warmed up the fudge topping just a bit so I could drizzle it over the top.  If it's cold, you get more of a "blob"...which isn't all bad if you are really into fudge!  LOL

These are amazing!  My husband served one to our contractor yesterday, who is not a huge chocolate fan, and he said they were "more than a brownie" and "the best brownie he ever had".  Pretty high praise for something prepared from a mix with a few quick add-ins!  This recipe is a keeper.

Hope you are having a great day!  I promise to be back soon with blog candy....
