Oreo Truffle Brownies

Oreo Truffle Brownies | | #brownie #oreo

About a year ago, Jordan’s school had an evening book and craft fair. We went to dinner with some friends and then drove over to the school to buy some new books.

As we walked through the parking lot, at 7:00 at night in the late Fall, the stars were coming out.

Jordan turned to me and said something to the effect of, “Wow, is this how dark it gets?”

I thought she was joking. Her friend and his mom laughed. And then I realized something.

She was serious. She really didn’t know how dark it gets.

Because she always goes to bed before 8:00. And, other than Halloween, we were hardly ever outside after dark. The poor child had been deprived of nighttime.

I’m really not a horrible parent. I just value my sanity.

You see, no matter what time she goes to bed, she wakes up no later than 6:30. Recently, we hit a long stretch of bouncing into my bedroom before six. And when she loses sleep it takes her days to recover it.

Days, people. Days of tantrums and general unpleasantness.

But this year I decided to be nice. We had people over for New Year’s Eve and let her stay up to celebrate the ball drop…with the East Coast live show at 9:00.

And I may have let her think it was midnight.

Maybe. But I will neither confirm nor deny that.

As for the screaming and unpleasantness…for going to bed at 10:00 pm, she was pretty good until bedtime Sunday. There may have been a lot of TV on that day. And the next.

But I will not confirm nor deny that either.

What I will confirm?

That these brownies rock.

I didn’t make Oreo Truffles this year. I wanted too, but ran out of time for all that rolling and dipping.

And then I thought, why not just make an Oreo Truffle layer? On brownies? And spread melted chocolate on top? So. Much. Easier.

And tasty, too.

I’ll be making these again for sure. As for letting Jordan see the night sky again…well, there’s always New Year’s Eve next year.

I’m kidding.


Oreo Truffle Brownies


  • 1 box brownie mix (8x8 pan size) and ingredients called for on box
  • 20 Oreo Cookies
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Bake brownies according to package directions, using foil to cover your pan for easy removal. Leave in pan and let cool completely. (The refrigerator can help speed up this process.)
  2. Finely crush Oreo cookies in a food processor. Add cream cheese to food processor and pulse until mixture is combined and smooth. Spread over brownies and press to compact.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Spread evenly over Oreo truffle mixture using an offset spatula. Chill until hardened, remove from pan and cut into squares.

  2. Made these today for my mom to take to work. I let the edges get a bit too hard (always forget JUST how much the brownies harden after removing from the oven – gotta take them out way before a toothpick comes out clean!!) But I think the moist truffle layer will make up for it. I just used the icing packet that came with the brownie mix instead of using chocolate chips and decorated the top with chopped Easter chocolate mini eggs candies!! I’d like to try making these again using peanut butter sandwich cookies, and also using vanilla sandwich cookies with strawberry cream cheese (I’ve done that for making the actual truffles before and people love it, so I can only imagine that adding a layer of brownies to that would be excellent!!

      I’m glad you liked them! Sorry they cooked too much. I always err on the side of underbaked with brownies!

  8. Just made these with a King Sized Hershey bar in the brownie layer (a steal from your recent cookie truffle post), semi-sweet chocolate chips on top of the brownies, and chocolate cream Oreos. If lightening strikes me today, I’ll die a happy gal thanks to this recipe. Fantastic!!!
