Creates, Bakes and Cakes

I am not sure who invented this recipe but whoever they are, they are a genius because this recipe is seriously worth the 1 hour it took to make. The hardest part of the recipe was actually waiting for the brownies to cool down enough to eat! If you have never tried making Oreo brownies before then you need to stop what you’re doing now and head to the shop to buy the ingredients to make it as soon as you can. Those of you who have tried these before will understand how much in awe I am of this recipe and those of you who haven’t will thank me for introducing this idea to you.

This recipe made around 12 large brownies and 18 smaller ones depending how you want to cut them.

Here’s the how to:

Preheat the oven to 180°C, Gas mark 4 and grease an oblong shaped tin that is roughly 18 x 27cm.

In a bowl whisk together 2 medium eggs and 200g (7oz) caster sugar until the mixture looks light, fluffy and aerated.

In another bowl put 100g (4oz) plain chocolate, broken into small pieces, along with 100g (4oz) margarine. Place this bowl in a pan of water over a gentle heat to melt the chocolate.

Once melted pour the chocolate into the egg mixture and stir well. Add 200g (7oz) plain flour and 1.5 tsp of baking powder.

Stir the mixture well with a wooden spoon before pouring it into the prepared tin. Now for the finishing, most important part, take a packet of Oreo biscuits and lightly press each of the Oreo’s into the mixture so that you can still see the tops before placing the tray in the oven.

Bake in the oven for around 30-35 minutes, removing once a slight crust has formed. Allow to cool for a little while (the longer the better, if you can resist it that long) and then cut into squares and transfer to a wire rack.

IT’S TIME!! Eat them warm or cold and have as many as you want because let’s face it you deserve it after going through all the effort of making them. Why not add a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream just to make it that little more delicious!
