Death By Chocolate Brownies

I love Christmas and I love making Christmas goodies. This year is an unusual year for me because all of the goodies I love making I could not eat. I was excited though to make them for others. I decided that I would make our neighbors some brownies…then realized I had some Oreos and some chocolate chips that were off limits for me and that Mark was never going to eat. So I thought it would be a good idea to add those to the brownies. I was drooling just looking at them and got asked for the recipe by every single person I gave them to. So grab a glass of milk and get ready to have all of your chocolate dreams come true. IMG_4737

Ingredients for Brownies:

10 Tablespoons room temperature butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour

Mix all ingredients together and set aside.

You will also need about 1/2 of a bag of chocolate chips and 1 entire package of double stuffed Oreos.

Grease an 8x8 baking dish. Cover the entire bottom with oreos. Then cover with 1/2 of your brownie batter.


Take half of your chocolate chips and dump over the brownie mix pressing them in. Crush 1/2 of the remaining Oreos and sprinkle over the chocolate chips.


Layer the rest of the brownie mixture and then repeat with remaining oreo and chocolate chips.

Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes (because it is so thick it will take a little longer than normal) Do check them at around 30 minutes to make sure they are not burning though because your oven might be different than mine! Take out of oven and let it rest in the pan for a few hours before cutting just so everything can settle.


Slice into 2 inch ish squares and enjoy! I did hear from one neighbor that they are very good warmed up…so give that a try.


Tips from Kj:

The biggest tip I can give is just to keep an eye on these in the oven. They took a lot longer to bake than I thought they would and I don’t want yours to burn if you leave them in too long. It is better to undercook a little because it gives them ooey gooey goodness than to cook them too long and have dry brownies.

I also think you could go many places with these. Like with Reese's peanut butter cups, or Rollo's, or Hershey's cookies and crème bars?? Anyone with me??
