I've been craving a good, rich, chocolate-y dessert for some time now. Finally, a time arose when I could make something - and take the majority of it to work.
We had double-stuffed Oreos in the pantry that we hadn't opened - and they were given to us last year. So, they were just a tiny bit stale but not expired. This inspired me to make something I've been wanting to try for some time: Oreo Brownies!
I make these in a 11x7 pan so I made 3/4 of the recipe. I didn't make any more changes, though I used some Splenda in place of about half of the sugar. That was a mistake because I've learned - now I know for sure with this experience - that it doesn't melt the way sugar does. But, that did not affect the taste! I also left off the frosting, thinking that it was unnecessary - and it was!
These turned out amazingly well! I baked them for about 25 minutes - but could have done with only about 23, probably. I like fudgey brownies! Everyone at work loved them and I could have eaten five right out of the oven....but resisted. This one is a keeper, for sure!
