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.

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. 🙂

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

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

    1. 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…)

  5. 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.)
