These fudge Oreo brownies are ultra fudge brownies made with a dark cocoa powder. They have an Oreo in the middle and more Oreos on top. Every bite of these rich brownies has Oreos!
How To Make Brownie Batter
This brownie batter makes the fudgiest brownies! It has whipped eggs and tons of chocolate chips.
- Whip the eggs and sugar- To get the crinkle tops, you whip air into the eggs and sugar! It needs to whip for 5 minutes.
- Use butter and oil- This recipe uses both melted butter and oil to get the fudgy center.
- Fold in dry ingredients- Fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. There is more cocoa powder to flour because less flour makes a fudgy brownie. If you want a cakey brownie you would add extra flour.
- Add chocolate chips- Next, fold in the semi sweet and milk chocolate chips. Trust me, get both types of chocolate chips.
What Type of Cocoa Powder To Use
These brownies taste better when you use a Dutch process cocoa powder. I got this one from Guittard This one is my favorite because it has extra fat compared to Hershey's brand. The extra fat will give you a very rich brownie.
You can use Dutch process Hershey's brand, but the brownies won't be as dark in color.
Baking The Brownies
Pour half of the brownie batter into a silver 8X8 inch pan. A light colored pan, will reduce the chances of the edges over baking.
Then, place whole Oreos on top of the brownie batter. Spread the rest of the brownie batter on top.
Next, top with milk chocolate chips and Oreo pieces. Then, bake for 45 minutes. The middle should be slightly underdone, but the edges will be set. Give the pan a jiggle, if it jiggles at all bake for another 5 minutes.
Cooling The Brownies
The fudge Oreo brownies need to be completely cooled before you dig in. When they are warm, the chocolate flavor won't be strong. The chocolate really blooms as it cools down.
Also, the brownies will continue to cook as it cools. If you dig in too early, they can become too goopy.
Once cool, pull the brownies on to a cutting board and remove the parchment paper. Cut the brownies with a sharp knife to get even squares.
How To Store
These fudge Oreo brownies should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. They will last up to 5 days.
I don't recommend chilling the brownies, to keep the fudgy texture they need to be room temperature.
