A double dose of deliciousness in this easy brownie recipe like in my Oreo chocolate chip cookies made with Oreo cookies and all the flavor of a chocolate brownie.
The combination of two favorite treats in this Oreo brownies recipe, fudgy and rich chocolate brownies with Oreo cookie chunks as in this recipe for oreo cheesecake brownies.
These perfectly fudgy brownies are made with a combination of chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder like in my classic chocolate brownies, which provide a dose of fondant texture and that incredibly rich chocolate taste.
Brownie paired with Oreo's is a guaranteed treat, like in these favorite Oreo recipes from my blog, baked cookies and cream cheesecake, oreo cupcakes, Oreo milkshake, Oreo cake pop or this mini oreo cheesecake.
Easy and foolproof recipe to prepare for any occasion, and homemade is much better than recipes with brownie mix, perfect for a birthday, a snack or just to enjoy, Oreo brownies will have their place at the party.

Ingredients and substitutions
Here are the ingredients you'll need and possible substitutions to make Oreo brownies at home and scroll down to see the quantities in the recipe card.
- Butter: Use unsalted butter rather than salted butter to control the amount of salt added. I prefer brownies with butter but you can also substitute it with vegetable oil.
- Chocolate: Use semi-sweet chocolate chips or baking chocolate chunks, you can also choose bittersweet chocolate for a fuller taste.
- Eggs: large eggs at room temperature to obtain a consistent batter.
- Sugar: Use white granulated sugar that can be replaced with flavored sugar such as dark brown sugar.
- Cocoa powder: Use only bitter, unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Flour: All-purpose flour that you can substitute with another flour of your choice or gluten-free flour (be careful with the quantity, measure well with an electronic scale, if you put too much flour you could have cakey brownies instead of fudgy brownies)
- Oreo cookies: I use about 10 broken Oreo cookies in the batter and 4 cookies for the top of the brownies. You can easily replace Oreo cookies with other cookies like biscoff cookies.
- Vanilla and salt: Pure vanilla extract to flavor the recipe and table salt or sea salt to bring out all the flavors.
- Chocolate chips: Add semi-sweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to the recipe at the end of the preparation before baking to have a more melting and chocolatey consistency.
- Nuts: crushed nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts, walnut kernels or pecans for extra crunch.

How to make Cookies and cream Brownies
Melt butter and chocolate
- Place the unsalted butter cut into pieces with the chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) in a medium bowl.
- Melt in a double boiler or in a microwave until the mixture is melted without any pieces.
- Set aside and let cool for a bit during the rest of the preparation.
Useful materials: Use a stainless steel bowl for the double boiler and a microwave-safe bowl to melt your ingredients.
Beat sugar and eggs
- Place eggs, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl.
- Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for about 2 minutes until you have a voluminous and shiny mixture.
- Add the melted butter and chocolate mixture and mix again with an electric mixer to incorporate.
Tip: I recommend using the electric mixer to mix, it's important to whisk the eggs and sugar well to get that shiny mixture that will give that crunchy layer on top of the brownies.
Add dry ingredients
- Add the dry ingredients, flour, unsweetened cocoa powder and salt.
- Mix this time gently with a spatula just enough to incorporate them and have a smooth mixture.
- Finish with the oreos cookie pieces and mix just a little to incorporate them.
Tip: You can mix and sift the dry ingredients together to make a smooth mixture that blends better with the brownie batter.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C and line a square brownie pan with parchment paper for easy removal.
- Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an angled spatula.
- Add a few pieces of Oreo cookies to the top of the brownies and press them lightly into the batter.
- Bake the Oreos brownies for about 30 - 35 minutes until it has a shiny crust on top but is still a little soft in the center.
- Let the brownies cool completely in the baking pan and then place them in the fridge covered with plastic wrap for about 1 hour before cutting them into 16 pieces with a large knife.
- Enjoy the Oreo brownies on their own or as a dessert with a bit of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Tip: Be careful with the baking time, if the brownies are overcooked the texture will be dryer and they will lose their fudgy consistency. Check at the end of baking with a toothpick inserted in the center, it should come out with just a few crumbs and not liquid batter.
Storage and freeze
Room temperature: Oreo brownies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container box with a lid for about 5 days.
Can I freeze brownies? Allow the brownie to cool completely before placing it whole and covered with plastic wrap or cut into parts in freezer bags and store in the freezer for 3 months.
Thawing: Let it defrost gently at room temperature overnight or use the defrost function of your microwave to go faster.
Tips for this recipe
Use room temperature ingredients: Especially for the eggs, which also need to be beaten enough to be frothy and shiny and have that crust on top of the oreo brownies.
Be careful with cook time: An overcooked brownie is an overdried brownie, as it also contains cookies inside, they will absorb even more liquids, so for a nice fudgy brownie reduce the cooking time a bit.
Let it cool before cutting: This is the ultimate trick for cutting clean slices. When the brownies are cold it's easier to cut them, so place them in the fridge for a bit before cutting them with a large knife.
Greedy tip: Instead of cutting the oreo cookies into pieces and mixing them into the batter, pour half of the brownie batter, place the whole Oreos cookies on top and then cover with the other half of the brownie batter.
