Oreo Brownies – A Rich and Decadent Dessert

Oreo brownies are not only chocolatey, decadent, and an amazingly good dessert, but they are also super simple to make.

The outside of this brownie recipe is crunchy and sweet with pieces of Oreo cookies, and the inside is soft, chewy, and gooey.

Trust me, if you make this dessert, people will beg for more–it’s that good. And, we all love Oreo cookies.

The brownies are made from scratch and taste sooooo much better than a boxed mix.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownies

  1. Add the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract to a large bowl and mix until creamy (it’s ok if you still have a few lumps in the butter).
  2. Next, add the eggs and mix.
  3. Pour the flour, unsweetened cocoa, and salt into the bowl and mix.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir them in.
  5. Take half of the Oreo Cookies and break them into four pieces each, add them to the brownie batter, and stir.
  6. Pour the brownie batter into the 9″ x 13″ greased baking dish and top with the remainder of the broken Oreo Cookies.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Let the brownies cool for about 30 minutes before cutting.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Butter in a large glass bowl.

Start by adding the butter to a large bowl.

Softened butter makes mixing a little easier, but if you are like me and forget to set it out to soften, it will work just fine right out of the fridge.

Sugar in a glass bowl with butter.

Next, pour the sugar into the bowl.

Vanilla extract in a glass bowl with sugar and butter.

Pour the vanilla extract into the bowl and mix the ingredients until creamy.

It’s ok if the butter is still lumpy because you’ll be mixing the batter some more.

Eggs in a glass bowl with sugar and butter.

Add the eggs to the bowl and mix.

Flour, unsweetened cocoa, and salt in a glass bowl.

The next ingredients include flour, unsweetened cocoa, and salt. Mix everything again until well blended.

Finally, take ten of the Oreo Cookies and break them into about four pieces. Add them, as well as the chocolate chips, to the brownie batter and stir to combine.

I used a spatula for this last bit of mixing so I wouldn’t break the Oreo’s up more. But, if they do break more, that’s ok because they will still taste great.

Scoop the batter into the baking dish and top with the remainder of the Oreo Cookies.

I used a smaller dish for this recipe, and they came out pretty thick. I do love thick brownies, but I recommend baking it in the larger 9″ x 13″ dish.

Don’t they look amazing?
