FoodBlogSwap: Oreo Brownies

The FoodBlogSwap is an event amongst bloggers from the Netherlands. You cook from a blog and someone else makes something from your blog. Each month this is great fun and I love to participate. It is a great way to discover new blogs. This month I got to make something from At Sowyen's Kitchen. And I couldn't choose so I decided to bake and to cook something from her blog. Another recipe will follow this week. First I will share the recipe for Oreo Brownies. I love Oreos and brownies, so this combination I really wanted to try. They tasted really great. We shared them with friends and they all agreed. We adapted the recipe slightly because my boyfriend Nick doesn't like dark chocolate very much, so we used milk chocolate instead.

Oreo Brownies: (makes 16)
- 165 gr unsalted butter
- 200 gr milk chocolate, chopped
- 4 eggs
- 165 gr light brown castor sugar
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 16 oreo cookes, in chunks

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees. Line an oven dish with a baking sheet.

Melt the butter in a pan and remove from the heat. Add the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melted and the butter and chocolate form a nice mixture. Let it cool down to 37 degrees. We don't have a thermometer but you can check, because your body temperature is about the same. So carefully check with a clean finger and if it is about the same, it is all good :)

Beat the eggs until they are tripled in size. Add the sugar gradually while you keep mixing until combined. Then carefully combine with the chocolate mixture and stir this together until smooth. Do not use your mixer anymore. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder plus 1/3 of the oreos and stir again carefully until combined.

Pour the batter into the oven dish and add the rest of the oreo cookies on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, but it depends a bit on your oven. Ours took 40 minutes to get a nice soft texture but not too runny on the inside. Let the borwnies cool down before you cut them into squares.
