I also have a yummy recipe for you today. And by yummy, I mean, insanely delicious. I made brownies, but then I decided to put a layer of oreos in the middle. It was a pretty darn good idea if I say so myself. The brownies were amazing and the oreos provided an awesome little surprise in the middle. This is my all time favorite brownie recipe and I love coming up with little ways to mix it up!
Oreo Stuffed Brownies
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp instant espresso powder
2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 10 oz package dark chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 and line the inside of a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with foil. Let the foil hang over the ends of the pan. Grease the foil.
2. In a large saucepan, over very low heat, melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Once melted, stir in the sugar until well combined. Next, stir in the eggs until well combined. Then, mix in the espresso powder, vanilla, and salt. Fold in the flour until just combined and then fold in the chocolate chips.
3. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Place oreos on top of the batter. Pour the rest of the batter over the oreos and spread out to make it even.
4. Bake for about 40 minutes. The sides will be set and the center will be just a little wet still. Let cool for 15 minutes. Using the ends of the foil, lift the brownies out of the pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
