Oreo Filled Brownie Bites

Oreo Filled Brownie Bites

Cake Pops.

Red Velvet everything.

Bacon in everything.

Mini everything.


Is this Oreo filled everything next?

I know I'm not the first. I've seen variations of different treats stuffed with Oreos. My friend Amy just stuffed one into a chocolate chip cookie. Hi Amy! You are brilliant and you know I couldn't believe it when I saw that post cause I had this one churning in my head at the same time.

I thought why not jump on the trendy bandwagon and stuff an Oreo in a brownie. You know now that I think of it I should have added a Hershey kiss, or a few M&M's in the middle. I could have had the turducken of desserts. Doh!

I had just bought a gigantic box of Oreos at my local warehouse club and I thought, what can I stuff these babies in? How about brownies?

Yeah I could have made them from scratch, but why bother when Mr. Ghirardelli can save me all the time and energy, and I just so happened to have a box of his fine products in the cupboard.

Next time I whip up a batch of these I need to get a non-nut mix. Evan was really disappointed that there were walnuts in these. Bad Mommy.

It really couldn't have gotten any easier. Here's what I did:

Oreo Filled Brownie Bites
1 box of your favorite brownie mix (I used Ghirardelli's walnut mix)
1 package of Oreos, any kind you like
1 cupcake pan

Spray your cupcake pan with cooking spray. Put a good tablespoon of batter in the bottom of the cup, enough to fill the bottom. Place the Oreo in the middle of the batter and press down slightly. Cover with another tablespoon of batter.

Bake in a 350 oven for 25 - 35 minutes. Test with a toothpick for doneness. Let rest in pan for 5 minutes, remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

This made 11 brownie bites.

"...the turducken of desserts" *snort* So true. No doubt these are awesome - what's not to love about a cookie stuffed inside a brownie? Hello!

And you will probably gain many followers because of it. My stuffed cookies post has something like 80 comments (unheard of for me.) And they're still coming in. It's crazy. I get it, though. I mean, *I* made them. And I'll make these. Naturally.

OMG, this is the best I have seen - looks like they are meant to be there.

This is officially evil in so many ways, and I so want one right now!

Hmm I'm a big fan of a chewy brownie so I'm not sure how a feel about an Oreo in the middle. Does it stay crunchy?

This is something Mr Chiots would love, perhaps if this were dipped in chocolate that would add another layer of goodness.

I have heard that spreading a little bit of peanut butter or Nutella on the bottom of the oreo is excellent. I, personally, LOVE chocolate and peanut butter, so that's what I will be trying. :)
