Description

These are the BEST ever brownies! Made with my favorite mix and made even more decadent with crushed Oreo cookies. So easy and always a hit!


Ingredients

  • 1 package Ghirardelli Double Chocolate brownie mix (the kind with the chocolate chips in it)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 10-14 Oreo cookies

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325. Prepare the brownie mix as directed with the egg, oil and water.
  2. Coarsely crush the Oreos in a large bag with your hands or a rolling pin. I like to leave some pieces pretty big. Pour them into the batter and mix well. Batter will be thick.
  3. Pour batter into a greased square baking pan (mine is about 8×8) and bake for 30-40 minutes. Check doneness by inserting a knife into the brownies; if it comes out mostly clean, you should be good to go. But when in doubt, I’d say underbake!

Notes

I double this for a 9×13 pan.

FYI: the texture of these is similar to a regular (but super ooey gooey perfectly baked) brownie. Usually people don’t even know that there are Oreos in it because they sort of just melt right into the batter, making them extra… yummy. You could sprinkle some on top if you wanted them be more like Oreo brownies.
