Birthday Brownies

In my quest to make birthday recipes all week, I came across these beauties by Bridget of Bake at 350. They’re Oreo brownies. But not just any Oreo brownies. These are made with the special birthday cake Oreos made for Oreo’s 100th birthday.

There was only one problem I ran into making these. They call for 20 Oreos.

That leaves exactly 1 Oreo left in the package for tasting.

It’s practically criminal.

I made these in my 9 x 13 springform pan (yes, they do make those!) so they’d be easier to cut, but Bridget’s tip about cutting them with your bench scraper? Genius. I’m never cutting brownies any other way.

This batter is really not pretty before you bake it. I kind of thought something was wrong, but once they baked they were just fine. Like she says, they’re bumpy, but it’s ok.

If you compare my photos to hers, you’ll notice mine are lighter in color. That’s because I only had regular cocoa powder. If you use Dutch process cocoa like the recipe calls for, your brownies will be beautiful and dark like Bridget’s.

Also, I could only find the jumbo confetti sprinkles. This just hasn’t been my week for sprinkles. And while the jumbo ones add a sort of whimsy, they’re totally not nice to eat. They’re really hard. I picked mine off when I ate them.

ha.

But the cake Oreos? They make this dish. It’s sooo good.

You should definitely make them while they’re still selling these things.

They’re Little Man approved.
