SRC: Oreo Cookie Brownies


I love the Secret Recipe Club for so many reasons, but this month I love it because I got to snoop around Rhonda's blog, The Kitchen Witch. I've actually been reading her blog for a while. And I'll bet she doesn't realize it, but we've even conversed through email. You see, I also write a dutch oven cooking blog (that I've neglected lately) and Rhonda is a budding dutch oven chef! She shared a hilarious dutch oven cooking experience with me.  You'll get a kick out of her experience and storytelling abilities here!

I have to say, The Kitchen Witch has something for everyone.  From the gourmet to simple but delicious recipes, I know you'll find something you'll love!  I chose this dessert because I needed something quick and kid friendly.  My oldest daughter wanted to have some friends over for a party and I needed a dessert to serve after the BBQ.  These Oreo Cookie Brownies was a huge hit.  I had no idea that 6 teenage girls could eat an entire pan of brownies!  This is what was left after they got through with it.  I'm glad they saved me a small piece!


 I did make one small change to the recipe.  The original calls for store bought frosting, and I have a hard time eating it because it's so sweet.  So I substituted vanilla pudding mixed with whipped topping as the frosting.

Oreo Cookie Brownies
Serves 15
 2 cups Cookie Crumbs (about 1 package of Oreo cookies)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 box brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on the box to prepare the mix i.e. eggs, oil and water)
1 large box instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
Mini Oreo cookies or cookie crumbles

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Mix the cookie crumbs and the melted butter.  Press into a 9×13 pan.  Prepare the brownies according to the package directions.  Pour the batter over the prepared cookie crust, spread evenly.  Bake according to the package directions.

Let the brownies cool completely.  While the brownies are cooling, mix the pudding with the milk and stir well.  Carefully fold in the whipped topping and spread on top of cooled brownies.  Top with mini Oreo cookies or cookie crumbles and enjoy!  Store any leftovers (if there are any) in the refrigerator.

  8. I make a different version of these that has Vanilla Buttercream over the top of the brownies. This sounds like a nice light version for summer though - I'll have to try it out!

  22. Hi! We made these brownies yesterday, and they were a huge hit. One suggestion.. You may want to revise the recipe to note Instant Pudding and the actual size of the pudding. We used the small 3 oz box of French Vanilla and the topping turned out really nice. We used cook and serve pudding at first, and then realized this was wrong because the topping was way too runny. So we had to remake the topping, but it turned out really nice. VERY VERY rich!
