Things I Bake | Brownies with a Twist.

June 24, 2012

Thanks to the powers of stumbleupon and a friend who let me taste these at a school bake sale, I have discovered these brownies that I can only describe as “positively sinful”

Let just get to the final photo, shall we?

If you can’t tell what this consists of, here’s a diagram. It’s three layers, and probably one of the easiest recipes you will ever come across.

The full recipe is from The Londoner’s blog, and I thank her graciously. I baked these and took them with me to a party, and they were all gone by the end of the night, so that tells you something – doesn’t it? She doesn’t exactly call them Triple Threat Brownies though…

Here is the recipe:

1 Box of cookie mix,
1 Box of brownie mix,
2 Eggs,
2 Packs of Oreos (double stuffed ones are even better if you can find them)
Some oil
& your favourite ice-cream (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350°F, 180°C, gas mark 4.
Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
Follow the instructions on the cookie mix box & stir furiously until you have gooey cookie dough, I usually add a little extra water and oil to what they suggest, it just keeps it moist as you’ll be baking it for longer than suggested. An extra teaspoon of each is just right.
Squidge (technical term) the cookie dough into a lined baking tray, until it covers the bottom.
Cover this layer with your Oreos. Don’t use the broken ones, eat them as you go. This recipe is too glorious to use substandard Oreos.
Mix up your brownie batter. Just stick to the recipe on the box for this one & pour over your Oreos. Bake for 30mins.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
When its still a little bit warm, use the paper to lift your creation out of the tray and rest it on a chopping board.
Use a large, sharp knife to cut it into manageable chunks, sections, slabs… depending on how many calories you think you can handle in one sitting.

This is all adapted from her blog, but you can see the full post here, complete with pictures. This is just my ode to her recipe.
