This is a very forgiving and malleable recipe. For some reason we were out of chocolate syrup, so I added one square of Baker's semisweet chocolate and half a container of chocolate flavored icing to the mix. Hubba hubba! I'm just not sure the kids are going to get any of these. It would be a shame to allow anybody but me to eat them :) great without frosting or with. This is my first batch of scratch brownies, and is the recipe I will always turn to.
FUDGY OREO BROWNIES
1 and 1/4 sticks unsalted butter 140g
1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar 300g
3/4 cup cocoa powder 75g
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs cold
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain/all-purpose flour 60g
1/2 cup chocolate chips 90g
16 Oreos whole
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper, and set aside.
Place the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 1 minute. Stir well, then microwave for another minute. The mixture should very warm to the touch.
