Hey everyone! Long time no post! Things have been hectic around here lately, we are moving in 2 weeks! Same town, we're just moving up from a townhouse into a house..we are really excited. So between looking for a place that suited us, and the start of the packing process, plus our busy everyday lives, there hasn't been much time to blog! Can I just say that I always forgot how much I HATE packing? Don't we all? I wish things could just magically appear in the new house! I always think "oh, it would be that bad" but it is! I guess it's sort of my own fault though..you see I sort of have an obsession with home decor, especially all things wrought iron. I will probably have 3 moving boxes full of wrought iron decorations by the time I'm done packing, and I already have 1 completely stuffed with candles, and that's just the downstairs..minus a few that are out of my reach that my husband will have to get down for me. Anyway, Oreo Brownies anyone? Get a load of these babies! So good, you must try them!
1 1/2 Sticks Butter, melted
1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, divided
13 Oreo Cookies, cut into medium sized pieces, divided
Combine butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Add eggs, and beat well. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Add in 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and all but 1/2 Cup of the Oreo's. Spread batter evenly into a prepared 9x12 dish. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes. Set brownies aside to cool, in the meantime, place the rest of your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until they are completely melted. Sprinkle the rest of the Oreo's over the brownies, then pour your melted chocolate into a sandwich bag, snip off the corner, and drizzle all over brownies. Let cool completely before cutting.
