Holiday Baking Day One: Brownie Covered Oreos

My holiday baking has begun and the menu’s changed a bit from what I originally intended to do since I kept seeing wonderful ideas on blogs all week! One item I saw recently were these Brownie Covered Oreos from Jenny at Picky Palate. They looked so simple and easy that I knew I had to try them out for myself!

I used a box of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie mix + a bag of regular Oreo’s (I got them at Target and Target didn’t have the fancy holiday Oreo’s). The only hard part was that my brownie mix had chocolate chips in it – which sometimes made the Oreos a little lopsided in the cupcake pan.

You can see the chocolate chips sticking up a little from the batter. My last batch of brownie-oreos had a ton of chocolate chips piled on top since as I dipped Oreos I kept forgetting to include the chocolate chips!

I sprayed my cupcake pans pretty well so I didn’t have a lot of trouble getting them out of the pan. I did have to let them set up and cool in the pan slightly before popping each one out with a knife – otherwise, the cookie-brownie hybrid tended to break in half.

I drizzled these with melted white chocolate and a tiny sprinkling of colored sugar. I gave a batch to my friend for her birthday last night as well – so these are good for all occasions!

I got these cute holiday bags at Michael’s for storing a few of the treats I’ll be making over the next few days. Mine don’t look exactly like Jenny’s and I forgot to include an “inside shot” so be sure to check out Picky Palate for more photos of this simple and easy recipe!

  1. Hi Kirbie – These did taste really good! I wished I had thinned my batter out a bit more for easier coating and used a plain brownie batter though. But still good! I do love the bags from Michael’s, too. Cheap and cute!

  2. These look great! Just wondering… did you just dip the oreos in the brownie mix? or did you put the mix in the tin, then the oreo, then more mix? Also, did you have to adjust the temperature & bake time from the directions on the box. Any help would be appreciated… Thank u!

  3. Hi Rose – I dipped the oreos in the browie mix and covered any edges that were showing. These don’t need as much time to bake – about 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees – be sure to not overdo them! I also popped mine out of the muffin tin with a knife after they were done.
