Outrageous Oreo Crunch Brownies

Oreo Brownies


Brownies are a dessert that have been around for many years and I know there are several different ways to make them.  I know everyone has their very own favorite family recipe that cannot be beat, I know there's a recipe in my family that I consider "The Best" recipe!  Brownies have always been a common dessert in my family, it wasn't out of the ordinary for us to have a pan of brownies sitting around at any given time.  They are so easy to throw together and you have a delicious dessert in no time!  It's also a great thing to have around just to nibble on, you can cut a little piece and walk around and eat it.  Brownies can easily be one of those desserts that doesn't have to be eaten with a fork. 

Brownies are also one of those desserts where there are endless ingredients that can be incorporated into the recipe to give it a kick.  While looking on the baking isle it is easily seen that there are endless options that can be added to make a desired taste .  It's amazing to me to look at the box brownie mixes and far they've come over the years; there's not only plain brownies but brownies with marshmallows, double chocolate and tons of other things.  I've seen many things added to brownies to spice them up but until this recipe I had never seen a recipe where Oreos or any other type of cookies were added. 

This recipe for Outrageous Oreo Crunch Brownies created by Ina Garten is absolutely awesome.  This is definitely a recipe for any brownie, chocolate or Oreo lover.  Whatever your sweet craving is, this is a recipe that will quench and fill it!

(I reserved a few Oreos to sprinkle on top) 

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothepick inserted comes out clean.

***Since I used a 9x13 mine were thicker and needed to cook longer than 35 minutes.  Mine were a little gooey but I loved them like that!
