Oreo Stuffed Brownies

True creativity sometimes leads to magical marriages. The Oreo cookie is the perfect blend of cookie and frosting cream center. These days there is an Oreo for everyone. Chocolate lover's get chocolate cookies with chocolate cream. Vanilla lover's get vanilla cookies with chocolate cream. There are all sorts of blend of the two. Don't forget the new fancy ones that include mint, peanut butter, birthday cake, cookie crumbles, double layers, and double stuffed. And still the old Purest Traditional Oreo.

But what is there about an Oreo that drives us to do all sorts of things to it? Have you tried a fried Oreo? Or how about an Oreo cream pie? Oreo ice cream? Chocolate covered Oreos. And of course my specialty baking them into things such as cookies, cupcakes, and the all important brownie.

Want a sure fire bake sale seller? Want to put any other baked goods in their place? Try this one out and watch the amazing look of people in heaven. I should also note, if you have ever eaten mine, i actually use homemade brownie mix, but store bought works the same.

Full time: 1 hour (includes cool time to frost)
Makes 12-15 brownies

You will need:

12-15 Oreos
1 egg
1 box family size brownie mix (19.5 oz)
1 1/2 cups chocolate frosting
*ingredients called for on brownie box

Let us begin:

Preheat your oven to 350.

Line a 12 cup muffin tray with paper liners, have a second tray ready to use just in case with 3 liners.

Mix brownie mix according to package and add in the one egg.

Here us the fun finger part. Dip an Oreo into the brownie mix and coat it.

Place the dipped brownie into a paper liner and continue with remaining Oreos.

After you finish 12, you should see that the brownie mix has pooled slightly around the Oreo.

Cap off each one and make sure they are 2/3 full with brownie mix.

If you have left over mix, continue one at a time into the second tray. Making sure you can cap off each one with extra mix.

Bake in oven for 12 minutes. To test if done gently insert toothpick trying not to pierce Oreo.

Allow to cool completely before frosting.

Top with a thin layer of chocolate frosting, this adds a tiny bit of needed moisture and covers any Oreos peeking out.
