What happens when you mix oreo and brownies? LOVE at first bite. It's an experience. These brownies are fudgy, sweet, and that crinkly top is freaking awesome. I'm big on textures so I love the juxtaposition between the fudgy bottom and the crinkly top with a slight chewiness from the oreos. It's amazing.

This is the third recipe in the BrowniePalooza lineup that I'm doing this week (hence all of the brownie recipes). So many people wanted to have an oreo recipe, so here it is in all of its glory. Enjoy with a little ice cream for a little a la mode action or eat them alone, either way you're going to LOVE this recipe.

how do you make oreo brownies?

To make these oreo brownies, start by melting butter and chocolate together until smooth. Set it aside and begin whipping the eggs. This ensures that nice crinkly top that we all love! Beat the eggs and sugar together for about 8 minutes.

Then pour in butter/chocolate mixture and fold in the cocoa powder, flour, and kosher salt. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick baking spray or line with parchment paper. Pour half of the batter into the pan and smooth on the bottom. Add oreo cookies and pour the rest of the batter on top and add more oreo cookies.

Bake for 35 minutes and you're done!

kitchen tools used

Only a handful of tools are needed to make these oreo brownies! They're super easy to make, check out the tools I used below! Of course, you do not NEED these tools, but I like to provide this as guidance to make the recipe even easier.

tips for making oreo brownies

  • Be sure to beat the eggs for the full 8 minutes prior to adding the melted chocolate and dry ingredients! This will ensure the crinkly top!
  • After beating the eggs, be gentle with adding additional ingredients so that the batter does not deflate. We want the air bubbles!
  • Allow these oreo brownies to cool, it's a super important step! This ensures that the brownies are fully set before cutting.
  • If you don't like oreos, you can omit them for a delicious crinkle top brownie recipe.

why do brownies get crackly top?

Two factors yield the crinkle crackly top that we love - air and chocolate. For this oreo brownie recipe, I beat the eggs and sugars together for about 8 minutes. This adds air to the batter to ensure it's not only fluffy but when you bake it, the air bubbles rise to the top which create crinkly/crackly top.

Secondly, the chocolate also helps also create the crinkle top. The chocolate has more fat than water so this creates that crinkly crackly shiny top.

Serving: 12 servings
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 35 mins
Calories: 494kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsps sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 25 oreo cookies

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Microwave butter and pour into a mixing bowl. Add chocolate chips and whisk until melted. If chocolate isn't fully melted, microwave for 15 seconds and continue to whisk until smooth. Set aside.
  • Add four eggs to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Add eggs, sugar, brown sugar, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium high for 8 minutes, mixture should be light yellow color.
  • Reduce speed of mixer to low and slowly pour in the melted chocolate/butter mixture. Mix on low for about 5-10 seconds and stop the mixer.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add to batter and fold in just until the flour is combined - do not overmix, it's ok it the batter is slightly chunky.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with oil or line with parchment paper. Pour half of the batter into the pan. Break about 15 oreos into pieces and spread onto the batter. Add remaining batter on top and then add remaining oreos on top.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting.

  2. Good lord these brownies are dangerous 😅 made them for a party and let’s just say they didn’t make it to the party. So moist and the Oreo valences with the fudgeyness so perfectly. I’m gonna have to make 2 batches from now on. One for me and one for everyone else!!!
