|Oh yes, and I drizzled white chocolate over some of them|
Hi friends! Oh boy do I have a lovely gift for you! If only you could have joined the group of friends we had over last weekend for a BBQ so that you too could have been momentarily high off the amazing richness of the Oreo brownies I made. It all started with the Strawberry Cheesecakes with Golden Oreo Crust that I made for the princess's birthday party. I felt bad that I had left out the chocolate counterpart to the golden Oreo. I know, it sounds crazy, but I am fair like that. If you HAD to choose between the original chocolate Oreo or the newer Golden Oreo, what would you pick? Well, it's a good thing you don't have to pick! People, these are amazing...you gotta make them! Oreos in the Brownie, Oreos in the frosting filling and Oreos to top it off!

Amazing Oreo Brownies
1 box of your favorite fudgy brownies (plus ingredients to make it) OR your favorite recipe (I used these Fudgy, Chewy, Cakey Brownie from My Baking Addiction and they were so amazing they were worth the extra work)
24 Oreos, divided
1/4 c butter, room temp
1/4 c shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 c heavy whipping cream
3 c powdered sugar
Line an 8 X 8 pan with foil or parchment paper. Prepare and bake the brownie mix according to directions. Cut 8 of the Oreos into quarters and lay on the bottom of the lined pan. Pour the brownie batter on top and bake. Make sure you leave the brownies a little fudgy, don't over cook them. When it's done, let them cool nicely on the counter or if you're like me, throw the pan in the freezer.
Now let's make the heavenly frosting. With an electric mixer cream the butter and shortening. Add the vanilla and whipping cream and again, with the mixer, beat for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and mix for another 2 minutes, scraping the sides to make sure everything is mixed well. Quarter 8 more Oreos and fold into the frosting. Get the brownies out of the freezer and dump the whole thing over the cooled brownies and spread evenly. Quarter the remaining Oreos and sprinkle them on top.
Some how the frosting tastes just like the Oreo middle! Get your eat on! Enjoy!
