Heyyyy! Does anything sound more tempting than these Oreo Stuffed Brownies with Oreo Vanilla Frosting at this moment in time, now that they've got your attention? 🙂
I've had some Double Stuf Oreos tucked away and surprisingly they've made it untouched until this recipe. That is a miracle in itself around here, but whatever works!
Unfortunately for my family, I've had to resort to putting the smack-down around here, or there would be no recipes to share here. 🙂
So, around our house, if you find something that might be used in cookies, brownies or desserts, before indulging, you might want to ask before proceeding to eat. Just for precautionary measures, mind you. Better to be safe than sorry, right?
Anyways, back to the Star of the brownie show! These brownie beauties are bursting with Oreo cookie love in every bite.
These Oreo-stuffed fudgy brownies are rich and decadent and the vanilla frosting on top, mimics the Oreo frosting found in the middle of Oreo cookies and then there are more Oreo cookies loaded on top with a chocolate ganache drizzle.
Pretty much Oreo Brownie Heaven, if you ask me...these Oreo Stuffed Brownies with Oreo Vanilla Frosting.
What's a girl to do?
Eat 'em. Eat 'em like a Rock Star!
