Oreo Cookie Fudge Brownies

Oreo Cookie Fudge Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 165g/51/2oz butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g/7oz dark chocolate grated or finely chopped
  • 3 free range eggs
  • 2 free range egg yolks
  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds only (or alternatively 2tsp vanilla extract)
  • 165g/51/2oz soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1tbsp cocoa powder
  • 154g/51/2oz pack of Oreo Cookies broken into quarters
  • icing sugar for dusting (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/Gas4. Grease a 20cm/8in square baking tin with butter, then line with baking paper with the paper overlapping the sides a little.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the grated (chopped)chocolate. Leave to stand for  few minutes, or until the chocolate melts, and then stir together.  Alternatively, you can put the chocolate and butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave in 25 second blasts, stirring well each time.
  3. Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla together in a large bowl until the eggs begin to get light and fluffy. Add the sugar in two additions, whisking between each. Pour it around the side of the egg mix so as not to knock out the air that has been whisked in.  Keep whisking until the mixture becomes stiffer. Once the egg mixture is ready, pour the chocolate into it – again around the sides so as not to knock the air out.
  4. Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt and a third of the biscuits and stir until fully combined, then pout the mixture into the prepared tin. Scatter the remaining biscuits over the top, pressing them slightly. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 – 3 minutes. The middle should be ever so slightly gooey. Leave the brownies to cool in the tin – the to will sink and crack a little.
  5. Pull the brownies out using the overlapping paper and cut into squares. Dust with icing sugar if you like.

These are very rich and very, very tasty. Great baking for a wet and windy day like today…..the ones in this picture didn’t last long!
