Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Fudge Brownies

17 Jun

I have to confess, I don’t like frosting. Never have, never will. Now, before you string me up by my toenails and make me eat a jar of sickly sweet stuff, hear me out.  Sometimes frosting can be a good thing,  like on a cake.  But I hate when it’s piled on so thick, you can’t really taste the cake itself. Same goes for cupcakes. I usually scrape the frosting off and only leave a thin layer so it compliments the buttery richness of the cupcake but doesn’t drown it in icing.  However, there is no place for it on brownies.  If brownies and frosting hooked up, it would be a drunken one night stand.   A regrettable one at that.  Brownies are so rich and fudgy, perfect for ice cream or whipped cream, not for an overbearing drama queen like frosting.  So without further ado, I give you Chocolate Peanut Putter Oreo Fudge Brownies sans frosting. Enjoy~


  • One box of high quality brownie mix or your favorite recipe
  • 8 Oreos crushed up
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Butter and Co Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
  • 1 egg


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter a 8 by 9 inch pan; set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter and the egg, set aside.  Prepare the brownies according to directions. Fold in the crushed Oreos. Pour half the batter into the pan, spoon the peanut butter mixture by tablespoon evenly over the batter.  Top with the remaining brownie batter. Cut through the batter several times with knife to get marble design.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Store tightly covered.

    The idea of drunken-one-night stands have never appealed to me. But this, this looks amazing. All the enjoyment without the regret. Well, perhaps a little regret when I am working off the entire pan I imagine I would eat.
