Oreo Brownies Ingredients
  • Butter. You can use unsalted butter or a dairy-free butter substitute if you prefer. Real, salted butter will lend the best flavor.
  • White Sugar.
  • Brown Sugar. Dark or light will work. Dark brown sugar has a deeper molasses flavor and is ever–so-slightly chewier. For this recipe, it is really about your preference.
  • All-Purpose Flour. You can use a gluten-free all-purpose one-for-one flour in this recipe.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa. The darker the cocoa, the darker the brownies. I like using this one.
  • Eggs. slightly beaten.
  • Vanilla Extract.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. You can also use chocolate chunks or chopped chocolate bars.
  • Oreo Sandwich Cookies. We use whole chopped cookies. You could use the mini Oreo cookies and leave them unchopped.

How to Serve Oreo Brownies

These decadent brownies can be eaten as is straight out of the pan as soon as they have set. They can be enjoyed hot or cold. If you want to ramp things up, serve each brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and maybe even a drizzle of chocolate ganache or caramel sauce.

These brownies are rich. I cut cooled brownies into small pieces, which makes this Easy Oreo brownie recipe the perfect addition to a dessert bar.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should toothpicks be clean for brownies?

No, your brownies will be overbaked. Go with 25 minutes and take them out. Let them cool in the pan. Once cool, they’ll be set.

What makes brownies fudgy vs cakey?

This is not a cake-like brownie recipe. Some recipes call for more flour and baking soda or baking powder to make them rise. This recipe has a minimal amount of flour and uses eggs so they don’t rise as much. The fat from the butter also aids in making this thick brownie moist.

How To Reheat & Store Brownies with Oreos

Best Way to Store Oreo Brownies

Keep your leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature. When storing your brownies, it’s important to ensure that they’re completely cool before putting them into an airtight container. If they’re still warm, they can create condensation inside the container, which can make them soggy. Make sure the brownies are at room temperature before sealing the container and putting them away. Storing them in a cool area will keep them from getting too soft. They can also be refrigerated.

Can I Freeze Oreo Brownies?

Yes. If you use a disposable pan, you can freeze an entire pan of brownies to thaw later. You can also freeze brownies individually on a tray and then move them to an airtight container after a couple of hours. A third option is to freeze brownies in individual sandwich-size freezer bags. In any case, brownies with Oreos should be placed in an airtight container to freeze and will last for up to three months.

How to Reheat Oreo Brownies

The best method I’ve found to reheat brownies is 10-30 seconds in the microwave for a single brownie. This depends on your microwave, the size of the brownie, and whether or not it was refrigerated. I recommend starting at ten seconds and adding ten seconds more as needed.

Variations and Substitutions

Once you have the basic recipe down, it’s time to play around with some variations to really make these brownies your own. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Mint Chocolate Chip: Use the Mint Oreos instead and mix in some chopped Andes mints instead of chocolate chips.
  2. White Chocolate Raspberry: Use Vanilla Oreos and white chocolate chips. Add macerated raspberries to each brownie when it is served.
  3. Peanut Butter Cup: Use peanut butter creme Oreos, and add chopped-up mini peanut butter cups or peanut butter chips to the batter instead of chocolate chips for a deliciously rich and nutty flavor combination.
  4. Coffee Lover. Use the Java Chip Oreos and add a teaspoon or two of Espresso powder in place of an equal amount of cocoa powder.

Recipe Tips for the Perfect Oreo Brownies

  • Don’t overcook. Your toothpick will not come out clean. I’ve cooked these brownies in different ovens in different states. They took anywhere from 20 to 35 minutes.
  • I used a 7×11 pan. If you use a 9×13, the brownies will be thinner. Or, you can double it and use a 9×13 baking pan. We have a free pan conversion sheet to help use the pan you desire.
  • No need to use a mixer with these brownies. They’re best just mixed by hand.
  • Heat the butter and sugars together first and allow them to cool while you sift the flour and cocoa together. That way, when you add the eggs, you will not end up with scrambled eggs.
  • Don’t skip sifting the cocoa. Cocoa clumps up and is hard to mix if it’s not sifted.
  • Lightly press the chopped Oreos into the top so they bake into the brownie, and don’t just slide off the brownies when you serve them.
  • Crush the cookies in a food processor or in a gallon-sized plastic zipper bag using a rolling pin. Don’t over-crush.
  • Lining the pan with parchment paper keeps the brownies from sticking and, it makes the brownies easy to remove from the pan for easy cutting.
