The Oreo Stuffed Brownie

"USA won 0-1"! Yeah we lost against Germany, but we are in the second round! Maybe I'll get some time to make soccer theme cupcakes before the world cup is over? In the meanwhile try out this Oreo Stuffed Brownie, or is it Brownie Stuffed Oreo, who really care. Its tasty, that's what matters! As you have probably figured out by now is that my husband is a HUGE chocolate fan, cause I keep pointing it out (here and here and here). I on the other hand LOVE Oreo's I pretty much try anything that has Oreo's in it.

And that being said how could I not try this recipe! Chocolate and Oreo's! Together, yes please :) and sprinkles to top it off, can't get more perfect than that!

The brownie is a little different from my usual recipe, but it tastes just as good. I used birthday Oreos, but you can go ahead and change to your favorite Oreo. FYI this is a really dense and sweet dessert, so make sure that you have people that you can share with before baking, cause you really don't want to eat it all yourself!

The Oreo Stuffed Brownie
Adapted from Bake at 350

1 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork
1 cup all-purpose flour, shifted
20 Birthday Cake Oreos (or regular Oreos)

Optional, if you like sprinkles like me :)
1 tsp corn syrup
1 tsp water

1. Preheat oven to 325*F with the rack in the middle of the oven.  Line a 9x13" baking pan with Al foil.
2. Sift together the cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.  Set aside.
3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add sugar and whisk together. Stirring constantly, allow the sugar to melt.
4. Remove the pan from heat and add the sifted cocoa mixture, whisk together until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue whisking until combined.
5. Add sifted flour, continue whisking.
6. Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 20 Oreos.  Cover with the remaining batter; spread gently using a spatula.
7. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, until the brownies are done, but the center still looks soft.
8. Set the pan on a wire cooling rack and let cool 10 minutes.
[OPTIONAL: if you love sprinkles like me
9. Stir together the corn syrup and water. Once the brownie is cool to the touch, lightly brush the corn syrup mixture onto the cooled brownies and spread the sprinkles over the brownies.
***the corns syrup allows the sprinkles to stick to the brownies and adding the sprinkles after baking means they don't melt and become discolored***]
10. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting and serving.
