I have seen so many PINs and google postings about oreo brownies...even Bryan came home the other day talking about this brownie recipe that had oreos baked in the middle. Psst...I had seen it on Pinterest for months before this...come on Bryan, get with the times...lol. Anyway, I decided we would have this treat even though it would be all my calories for the entire week :( ! I wanted to make my own brownies for my first batch, but after running all over town searching for vacuum screws, roasting a pumpkin for puree and then pureeing it, cooking dinner (shephard's pie with steak instead of ground beef and sweet potato fries that seemed to take hours), cleaning the kitchen and then eating, making brownies from scratch just didn't appeal to me. So, I used the boxed mix of dark chocolate fudge brownies.
I prepared the brownies according to the package. I used skim milk instead of water and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I sprayed my 12 muffin tin with baker's joy and put 1 tbsp of the batter in the bottom of each space. I then put an oreo in the middle of each one...topping it off with more batter for each muffin. One box was EXACTLY enough for 12. I sprinkled the top with Resse's pieces (the more the merrier for me, but not everyone likes them...so, I put ALOT on half of them and only a few on the other half). I put the pan in the oven for 20 minutes and they were perfectly cooked. If you are like some people who like the inside brownie, you could make this recipe in a square cake pan.
ENJOY! The joy of brownie, oreos, and Resse's
