How to make the Oreo brownies
- Preheat the oven to 356°F / 180°C and line a 8 inch / 20 cm square brownie pan, either with parchment paper or by greasing it with butter and flour.
- Melt the butter and chocolate, placing the chocolate pieces and the unsalted butter in a container and melt them in a bain-marie or in the microwave.
- Beat the eggs and sugar, place them in a bowl and whisk for 1 minute.
- Add the melted dark chocolate to the egg and sugar mixture and whisk.
- Add the dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder and salt to the mixture and whisk until you have a smooth cake batter.
- Add Oreo cookies, cut into small pieces and stir into brownie batter.
- Pour the brownies batter into the square pan and bake in the oven at half height for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Let the brownies cool completely before removing from the pan and cutting into 12 equal sized pieces with a large knife.
How to preserve brownies
Store the brownie at room temperature in a cake box with a lid, they will stay fudgy for 1 week.
Or place them in freezer bags and you can keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Tips for successful brownies
Line you pan
Use a square aluminum pan and line it with parchment paper to prevent the brownies from sticking to the bottom. It will be easier to remove from the pan.
Room temperature eggs
Use room temperature eggs to achieve the perfect brownies texture. You can run them under hot water before making this recipe.
Weigh the ingredients
The key to making a great fudge brownies is the right proportion of each ingredients. Use an electronic scale to weigh your ingredients, especially the flour, which can change the texture if there is too much or too little.
Do not over mix the batter.
After adding the flour to the mixture, mix gently just until it is incorporated. Over mixing the flour will make your dough too elastic.
Avoid overcooking your brownies
It is better to undercook it than overcook it, indeed it is partly because of the overcooking that your brownies will be too dry. Check the cooking with the blade of a knife. Your brownies should still be soft when they come out of the oven, they will harden as they cool (kind of like cookies) (overcooked it will be too dry).
Allow to cool completely
Like cookies, let your brownies cool completely before unmolding and cutting to prevent crumbling or breaking. You can place your brownies in the fridge for about an hour before cutting it with a large knife.
For an even more indulgent brownies
If this brownies recipe isn't decadent enough, then here's a suggestion of things to make them even more indulgent.
- Add a layer of Oreo cookies to the center of the brownies. For a crunchy layer in the heart of the brownies, pour half of the batter, then arrange the Oreo cookies and add the second half of the batter.
- Add chocolate chips to the mixture, the chocolate taste will be even richer by adding chocolate chips inside and on top of the brownies.
- More crunch with crushed nuts, add chunks of nuts for an even crunchier brownies like hazelnuts, macadamias or almonds.
- Add cream, serve the brownies warm or warm it in the microwave before serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or custard.
