Oreo Brownies

Oreo Brownies

Remember the Cranberry Salsa I made back in December? Loved that recipe. It came from this cute book-

I purchased “Bliss” last month, and found this recipe for Oreo Brownies. Since Oreos are my fave store bought cookie, and I love brownies, I had to give this recipe a try. They were quick to put together and a real kid pleaser. More like a bar cookie than a brownie, similar to Nordy Bars. Great for an easy semi-home made treat.
The cookbook: I loved the clean look of this book. Love that’s it’s a local author (Utah) and thought A Bountiful Kitchen readers would love it too. Great cookbook to add to your collection!

Oreo Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 package Oreo cookies chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup chocolate chips milk or dark
  • 1 cup vanilla or white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line an 9 x 13 pan with foil, leaving an overhang of foil around the edges. Lightly grease the pan.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the chopped cookies with the butter. Pour half the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the chips, marshmallows, and nuts. Top with the remaining cookie mixture. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.
  4. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool to room temperature and lift the bars from the pan. Peel back the foil and cut into serving pieces.

Recipe Notes

-I omitted the nuts, partly bc I thought most kids don't love nuts, and partly bc I thought nuts with this combo didn't sound good.

-I used closer to 1 1/2 cups each of choc chips and white chips, and used closer to 2 cups marshmallows total.

-Also, think I would like this better cooked in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan, the brownies were a little on the thin side for me.

  1. Walks along the golf course during the day with my girls, (1&3)
    No more sweaters, socks, turning up the heat, no more "wishing" we could go outside….REAL WALKS…

  2. My very favorite thing about Spring is the parallel it draws from Winter—Winter allows the rain and snow, for a couple of months, from dark, threatening clouds. Then, as if nothing ever happened, we rise to a perfectly sunny, cloudless day. A lovely, clean slate from the seemingly neverending cold. Forgiveness.
    It is my favorite time of year.

  3. My favorite thing about spring is watching the world come alive. I'm already seeing my hyacinths poking out of the ground. And I know more will follow quickly. And this Spring, I'm especially looking forward to enjoying my second trimester of pregnancy and welcoming a little girl this summer!

    Love your blog – I'll be back!

  4. The brownies look delicious! I'm loving that the snow is finally melting, after the worst snowfall in history here! It felt great to put away all the heavy winter coats!! I noticed yesterday that there are buds coming on the trees! I can't wait for the cherry blossom festival!

  5. I love waking up to the sun peeking through the blinds on a spring morning and being able to draw the curtains and feel the sun's warmth! That is what I LOVE about spring!

  6. Flowers and birds everywhere! Warmth! Finally I can emerge from 'hibernation' and play in the dirt! Plus, the BBQ is finally released from it's snow cave and waiting to be used.

  7. I love the tulips and daffodils that come out. Something else I'm realizing is that I love the fact that we don't have to bundle up when we go outside!

  8. The first bulbs to poke there little tips out of the frost and snow. In my yard those hardy little things are the snow-drops. The daffodils can't be far behind.

  9. So excited to share the recipe with friends of mine – I put a link to your site and the giveaway on my blog earlier tonight.

    Also, I forgot to mention in my earlier post what I like most about spring – it's the tulips! I can't wait to see all the tulips pop up in my garden!!!

  10. The thing I love most about Spring is the April General Conference. My husband is in the Tabernacle Choir and this is our first conference together as husband and wife. (Last general conference we were only dating.)

  11. I love spring because the world finally wakes up after the long, dark winter! I love this spring especially because my baby is due! yay!

  12. I love spring because you never know what we're going to wake up to. It could be sunny, 45 degree's or a snowy blizzard. I enjoy both kinds of days- walking with the kids to the park or putting on a snowboard to catch the last days of winter!
