Fudgy Oreo Brownies

These Oreo Brownies seriously are my most favorite brownies ever – the fudgy factor alone is worth every calorie.

Is it “fudgy” or “fudgey”? Google didn’t know, and my spell check doesn’t either.

But then again, my spell check doesn’t know how to spell bundt. Or brownies. Well, sometimes it knows brownies, but not all the time.

So I wouldn’t trust it either way if it said fudgy was a word. Or fudgey. I don’t think it really matters.

What does matter? Is that these brownies are so fudgy that my daughter actually thought they were fudge.

That’s how good they are.

I am soooooo a fudgy brownie person. I guess there are two camps of people: fudgy and cakey. These are most definitely NOT cakey brownies. These are ultra rich, chocolatey, fudgy brownies.

{Ha! Learned something new about my mac just now: if you stop it from auto-correcting fudgy 10 times in 2 minutes, it stops trying.}

Last week was OBC. I was stressed, crazed, and I neeeeeeeded chocolate. I needed brownies.

Because I can eat an entire pan of brownies in one sitting by myself, I like to add things to bulk them up. Like frosting. Or Oreos. It makes me pause and realize I shouldn’t eat more than half the pan.

I used my favorite brownie recipe. It’s my go-to not-a-box brownie.

They taste better than a box – I promise. And they’re just as easy. I promise! I make them all the time.

These Oreo Brownies are the best yet! | crazyforcrust.com

I made just two changes in my original recipe:

1. I baked them in a 9×9″ pan, so they’re thicker. Thicker = Fudgier.

2. I used Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa. I’ve never used that before. And oh, wow. I’m never using anything else ever again. Who knew a mere 2 tablespoons of dark cocoa could make such a difference?

I really have no words for how good these are. Favorite. Brownies. EVER.

These are one bowl brownies, as long as you have a microwave safe bowl. There are 3 kinds of chocolate, but it’s worth it. And there’s lots of butter. And lots of sugar.

But guess what? They’re lower in fat.

I used reduced-fat Oreos. :)

Fudgy Oreo Brownies

Yield: 9 large brownies or 36 bites

Fudgy Oreo Brownies


  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Special Dark)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 16 Oreos


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place the two baking chocolates and butter in a large, microwave safe bowl. Heat on HIGH power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is smooth. Stir in sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and cocoa and stir well. Add flour and stir carefully.
  3. Spread half of batter in prepared pan. Place Oreos evenly over the batter, and top with remaining batter. Bake about 33 minutes, until a toothpick 2 inches from the outside of the pan comes out clean. Let cool before cutting.

    These look awesome, I LOVE fudgy (according to dictionary.com, it’s not even a word, LOL! Someone invented it, but i like spelling it as “fudgy”) brownies! And does it make a difference if I use just normal unsweetened cocoa powder? Thanks!

  6. I always spell it fudgy, but maybe it’s one of those words that’s not really a word. I don’t care, anything fudgy is a winner in my book! These look wonderful. Obviously.

  7. Oooh girl! Best brownies EVER! And fudgy can be spelled however you want it as long as it looks like this :) Pinned!

  8. Spell check could use a lesson on spelling, am I right?! If Google didn’t know how to spell it either than I say you are A Ok! :)

    These look amazing, Dorothy. How creative to put the Oreo cookies in the middle!

  9. These look pretty darn fantastic. I am recently obsessed with Oreos. I think I need one or two of these in my life.

  10. I like my brownies rare, as in so gooey, they’re barely cooked. Of course, those are for the nights when you and the fam are going to eat them hot straight out of the pan while watching junk TV. But fudgy is definitely my game, and these look awesome. I’m still so sad that I couldn’t participate in OBC. I hope there will be a next time.

  11. These look ooey, gooey and delicious! Thanks for OBC – you guys did an awesome job picking out topics and hosts. I’m still not finished reading through everything, but so far lots of good info.

  12. I used fudgy as opposed to fudgey. One less letter to type :)

    And does anyone like cakey brownies? I really don’t think so from what I can tell. Dry and airy vs. dense and rich and like eating a slab of fudge. Ummm…no comparison.

    And yes to baking Oreos into them. I’m a fan as often as possible!

  13. Spell check hates me and the word “fudgy” – thats okay, who is it to judge me when I get fudgy brownies? These look right up my alley and I love love love that you used reduced fat Oreos because I totally laughed out loud when I read that. :) I almost always use dark cocoa powder, but one time, my dad thought I had burnt the entire pan, the brownies were so dark … I’ve used half and half (regular cocoa and dark) since then;) I wish I could have some right now, they look like they would win my chocoholic heart over in a second!

  14. Hershey’s special dark is my favorite!! And I love the use of low fat in these brownies :)

  15. I am totally a fudgy brownie person. Also love chocolate and haven’t been getting enough lately. Need one of these ASAP!

  16. just found your site and I love it! Always looking to follow more dessert blogs! and I am excited to try this brownie recipe because I am forever on the search for the perfect from scratch brownie

  17. Seriouuuusly–these are SOOOO fudgy!!!! I am dying over here!

  18. I think it’s just “fudge brownies” unless they are “fudgier”…?? lol
    btw, these are great (even after being frozen)!!

    • Especially when you remember they’re in the freezer and heat them in the microwave… (BTW, I’m pretending you took half the pan, mmkay? Because they’re all gone and I was the only one to eat the rest…)

  19. Dorothy, you are SO cute with your reduced-fat oreos! I think that all brownies should be fudgy. Cakey brownies are just… Well, chocolate cake squares without the frosting. Not brownies!

    My Mac does the same thing! I decided it’s “fudgy,” but it still needs to learn brownies. And bundt. (So does my phone — it doesn’t believe “bundt” is a word either.)

  20. Ok, this must be heaven! Wooo

  21. I don’t care how it’s spelled, just get it in my face! These look ridiculously good!!!! I love how fudge-y they look!!!

  22. As long as they taste fudgy/fudgey … that’s all that matters … your photos are the proof … they are fudgy!
    Brenda @ SweetSimpleStuff recently posted..Nutter Butter Zombie EyeballsMy Profile

  23. Now these are my kind of brownies! These look incredible Dorothy!
    Kathy recently posted..Apple Maple Roasted PorkMy Profile

  24. Hi Dorothy. Do you know of any reason why I couldn’t use a variety of flavoured sandwich cookies: peanut butter, or maple, etc? As long as they have the icing-type middle, I was hoping the cookie could lend itself to variations. Thank you.

  25. fudgy is the only way to go! I love oreos in brownies..can never have enough chocolate!
    alex recently posted..Candy Corn CupcakesMy Profile

  26. I’m totally with you… fudgy beats cakey any day, and the Special Dark Cocoa powder is THE STUFF. It’s so good! I love that you used Oreos in these, too. What a great treat!

  27. The fudgier the better!! These look so good Dorothy!!

  28. Mmmmm….fudgy. I can’t stand cakey brownies so these look like perfection to me, especially with the Oreo cookies in the middle!
    Nancy @ gottagetbaked recently posted..Olive Oil Pumpkin LoafMy Profile

  29. I vote for fudgey vs cakey also. These look awesome! I’m pinning these to my cookings / bars board.
    Michele @ Flavor Mosaic recently posted..Italian Sausage and Pasta in a Cream Basil SauceMy Profile

  30. Yes!! I love that you used Special Dark! That stuff is amazing. Cakey brownies ain’t got nothin’ on fudgy brownies. (I am convinced that it is spelled this way because that’s how it’s spelled on the Betty Crocker box and Betty knows all!)
    Katie @ Dip It In Chocolate recently posted..Peach CrispMy Profile

  31. isit okay if i use baking paper instead of aluminium foil?

  32. Your blogger get-together sounds like so much fun, Dorothy! There really is nothing like talking with others who really “get it” ! Extra big bonus that the husbands and kids get along as well. :) I would love to attend a gathering like that in St. Louis. As for these brownie bites…..You reeled me in with Cookies ‘n Cream Kisses (who knew?!) but I fell in love with the Mini-Oreos on the bottom!
