Brownie-Covered Oreos


I've been accused of being a dessert snob, and I'll admit, it's true. I like a challenge, be it frozen lemon mousse or creme brulee. But even I can recognize the undeniable truth that box mix brownies and oreos are a magic that just can't be created from scratch.

I was trying to think up some fancy dessert to bake for Sean's friends, but as soon as I spotted this recipe, I decided to scrap those plans in favor of full-on, unadulterated junk food porn.

The steps are beyond easy.


Mix your brownie batter according to the directions on the box.

Dip oreos in the batter.

 Put each oreo in a well-greased or liberally sprayed muffin tin. Bake at 325 for about 15 minutes.

 Et voila! From the outside, an unassuming mini brownie.

But what lurks inside is a happy surprise!

i might have to make these right about...now.
is the oreo warm and soft? or is it still slightly crunchy? both sound yummy but i just want to know what to expect.

Laura,
It's still warm when it's right out the oven, but stays crunchy by the time the whole thing cools. I considered microwaving one and having a mini a la mode sundae, but I didn't get around to it.
