Food Lust - Oreo Truffle Brownies


We all know how I am a big fan of Oreo biscuits and I frequently make the Oreo Brownies using the recipe by Lorraine Pascale which was featured on the blog many months ago. They are a massive hit with my family and friends. But now I have found an even better recipe for sheer pornographic chocolate indulgence!

Earlier this week I visited my wonderful friend Debbie (who's a great mate to have because she's an amazing makeup artist) who had made Oreo Truffle Brownies which were ruddy amazing! These are very different to the Lorraine Pascale brownies but just as delicious. Here's the recipe:


INGREDIENTS

1 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. Double Stuffed Oreos
4 oz. cream cheese softened
10 oz. Dipping Chocolate


INSTRUCTIONS


1.  First things first - Preheat your oven to 180C.

2.  Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

2.  Now add the eggs but ensure to mix well. 

3.  Carefully put in the vanilla, salt, cocoa and flour. It is important to only beat slightly, don't overdo it.

4.  Once complete place the mixture into a greased 9X13 (32.5x23cms) pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes 
     then allow to cool completely.

5.  Whilst waiting for your brownies to cool you can make the oreo truffle layer. Grab a plastic/freezer
     bag and place the oreos inside, now the fun bit, get smashing with a rolling pin until they are finely
     ground.

6.  When oreos are totally crushed, mash together with the softened cream cheese and crushed oreos
     with your hands until they are well combined. As soon as the brownies are definitely cool you can
     then place the layer of oreo truffle on top. This is quite tricky to do without eating the truffle mix.

7.  Melt the dipping chocolate over hot water in a pan (you can use chocolate chips) and once melted
     pour and spread over the top of the oreo truffle layer. Cover and put in fridge for an hour until set.

8.  Now go and make yourself a cuppa ready to eat these sweet treats.


Here's Debbie's attempt at Oreo Truffle Brownies and my goodness, they were yummy!!!
