An easy treat for this 4th of July, 2021 – brownies frosted with an Oreo filling and melted Hershey kisses. For me, this originates from a request from my husband, who pointed to one such treat at Barnes and Noble and asked, “can you make that?” So I did.
You can use any brownie recipe or brownie mix you want, using an 8×8 or 9×9 pan. This frosting recipe uses Crisco to duplicate the Oreo filling. You could use butter instead, but it would considerably change the taste.
- 1 brownie recipe, made as directed and baked in an 8×8 or 9×9 pan and completely cooled.
- 1/4 cup Crisco
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbs water
- 4 to 5 Oreos, finely crushed
Directions – blend Crisco, sugar, vanilla, powdered sugar and water. You may want to add more powdered sugar and /or water, depending on the consistency you want. Mix in crushed Oreos. Frost brownies. Top with melted chocolate. (Microwave 1 cup or so of whichever chocolate you want to use in 30 second increments along with a tbs of vegetable oil until you can stir smooth.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by! Wishing you all good things!
