Oreo brownie cookies with chocolate ganache

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

A reminder to scoop your flour from your flour bag into you measuring cup. Also,form your dough into high mounds and chill these overnight. And,preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temp for baking

Still trying to use up my extra large box of Oreos,so I decided to finely crush them up, toss them in my brownie mix cookies. Then frost them with chocolate ganache (a fancy name for melted chocolate) and top with more finely crushed Oreos. These came out a little flatter than I prefer, so I may add a little more flour and a tbs of cornstarch next time to see if that helps them stay puffier.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 brownie mix
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbs water
  • 3 /4 cup finely crushed oreos

Directions – combine brownie mix, flour, vegetable oil, eggs, and water. Blend in crushed Oreos. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dpugh. chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completley.

  • Ganache ingredients
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl,heat both types of chips for one minute. Set aside. In another microwave safe bowl, heat cream for one minute. Pour over chips, let set 10 minutes. Stir smooth. Frost completely cooled cookies. Top with crushed Oreos. Store in covered container.

I went a little crazy with the ganache!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with joy and love. Remember to be kind. We are all fighting a battle… Some are more difficult than others.

Chocolate Chip cookies recipe # 25

Extra chips in this cookie!

These are one of my many, many chocolate chip cookie recipes. Rob requests only two things – chocolate chip cookies and brownies. I don’t like making the same thing over and over, so I have a collection of various recipes for both. That way there is a little variety for me in my baking. These cookies came out a little gushier than normal because we are having issues with our oven. It is less than 4 years old. I was pleasantly surprised that we got the warranty with it. So we are getting it fixed for free. We are waiting on some parts to come in and the tech will be back to fix it.


Some tips – scoop your flour from your flour container into measuring cup. Also, preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking to allow it to cycle for the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, cold (I used a cheese shredder to shred it)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Divide dough into 12 equal mounds of dough. Gently press remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips into tops of each mound. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on prepared sheets. Bake 12 to 16 minutes, depending on how gushy you want your cookies. Cool completley. Store ina covered container. I also chilled them a little too in the fridge.
