Oreo Brownies

For my first post, I would love to share this amazing recipe I adapted the other day. Oreo creme filled brownies. These are super simple but a little time consuming since you must let the brownies cool completely before spreading the creme. Onto the recipe:


Brownies: full disclosure, I used a box mix so please feel free to use your favorite recipe or your favorite box mix.

Creme Filling:
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. hot water 
Chocolate and Oreo Topping:
  • 2 cups milk chocolate morsels
  • One row of Oreos (about 10-12 Oreos)


  1. Bake brownies  in a 9x13 pan
  2. Allow brownies to cool completely, I placed mine in the refrigerator as soon as the pan had cooled off
  3. Create creme filling by combining the shortening, vanilla, sugar, powdered sugar, and hot water and mix with beaters or stand mixer until smooth (approximately 2 minutes)
  4. Spread creme filling over brownies. To do this, we placed different dollops of creme topping in different sections of the brownies. We then used our hands (wearing gloves) to spread completely over the brownies. The spoon made it difficult to smooth without ripping the brownies
  5. Melt chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. Every 30 seconds I checked the chocolate and stirred to ensure it wouldn't seize up
  6. While you are melting chocolate, place your Oreos in a plastic bag and smash up. I just used my hands to crush them but I am sure a roller would work too
  7. Pour melted chocolate over the creme covered brownies and be sure to cover entire pan
  8. Quickly add Oreos on top of the warm chocolate to ensure they will stick
  9. Cool brownies again in the fridge to harden chocolate
  10. Use a sharp knife dipped in hot water to cut into the brownies and store in an airtight container.
  11. Enjoy!
