The idea for them popped into my head when I was eating lunch out with friends. Literally just popped in my head while they were in the middle of a conversation about something completely non-brownie related.

Oreo Cream Filled Brownies

Love this fun spin on a brownie…Oreo Cream Filled Brownies are basically two thin, chocolatey brownies with homemade Oreo Cream filling! So delish!

Sometimes ideas are just too easy. Too perfect. Too “major duh”.

That’s these brownies.

The idea for them popped into my head when I was eating lunch out with friends. Literally just popped in my head while they were in the middle of a conversation about something completely non-brownie related.

Of course they looked at me like the weirdo that I am. You’d think they would know better by now.

See, everyone wants to PUT Oreos in desserts..how about we just mimic their yumminess in a brownie? I already have a fantastic Oreo Filling Recipe, so I just baked a brownie on the thin side, smeared that filling all over it and topped it with more brownie.

Melt them together.

Meanwhile beat eggs and sugar in a mixer until they become pale in color…

Add the rest of you ingredients and then pour your butter/chocolate mixture in…

You could probably use a boxed mix for this, but just make sure you buy the “Family Sized” Brownie mix.  A smaller mix might not make enough.

Spread that in a 10×15 pan.  I greased the pan…lined it with parchment and then greased it again. That way the brownie will release easily from the pan.  There is NOTHING worse than going to all the trouble and having your brownie stick and mess up the whole lot.

The batter will be thin.  It’s ok.

Bake them for just a few minutes until the center is set. And allow it to cool.

Make your filling, which is super easy.  I used shortening in my recipe, because that is more like the Oreo filling, however if shortening isn’t your thing sub in butter.  It will change the flavor, but of course it will be delicious.
