Peanut Butter Oreo Brownies

Printed at Crazy for Crust.

Ingredients:

24 Peanut Butter Oreo cookies, chopped*

¾ cup cocoa powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

2/3 cup butter, melted and divided in half

½ cup boiling water

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cups flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon salt


Directions:

1.       Preheat your oven to 350°. Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

2.       Coarsely chop your Oreos. (I cut them in quarters and then rough chopped the pile.) Set aside.

3.       Add cocoa and baking soda to a large bowl and stir to combine. Stir in 1/3 cup of melted butter. Add the boiling water and stir until the mixture thickens. Add sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup butter and stir until combined. Stir in flour, vanilla, and salt and stir until completely incorporated. Stir in Oreos. Spread in pan.

4.       Bake 30-35 minutes, until brownies begin to pull away from the side of the pan. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Yield: about 30-35 brownies.

*You can use any flavor of Oreo you want.
