I think it’s safe to say that almost every Mom does some sort of Brownie and Oreo combination. Really, I think it just depends on what your kids, or your friends and family like, right?
Like most kids my boys love brownies, and they love Oreos. The only thing they love more is brownies and Oreos together!
This really isn’t a true “recipe” rather it is more of semi-homemade concept, that can be changed and modified numerous different ways. Just use whatever flavor Oreos your family likes, make your changes from there and enjoy!
With these Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups I like to stack two in a disposable cup, put a small dollop of regular white frosting on top of the second one (or the top one), garnish with a some coarsely chopped Oreos, and add more sprinkles if desired.
Why the plastic cup? They’re easy to transport that way if you’re bringing them somewhere, and if you’re serving them at home they’re easy to serve and eat that way. Of course you would remove the cupcake liners before you assembled the cups.
I have to say Oreos have come a long way. There are so many really good flavors to choose from these days!
To make the Brownie Cups perfect for any time of year, simply swap the Oreos with a different flavor and the sky is the limit. 🙂
Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups
Makes 16 brownies, or 8 cups.
1 box (regular size) Brownie Mix and ingredients called for on back of package
Birthday Oreos, Golden Birthday Oreos, or any other flavor of Oreos you prefer
Frosting of choice
A few Oreos for garnish
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees, or temp. called for on back of brownie box. Line cupcake pans with paper liners, and spray lightly with non-stick spray.
2. Prepare brownie mix according to instructions on back of box. Place about 1 Tablespoon of brownie batter in bottom of each muffin cup. Place Oreo on top of brownie batter (use any Oreo you like) and continue filling as you normally would for a brownie cupcake.
3. Bake as you normally would. After brownies are completely cooled, peel of paper liners, stack two in a cup, frost and decorate as desired.
* During the warm months I don’t like to use Buttercream Frosting for the Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups. We’re usually outside with the kids whenever we have a get-together where these Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups would be enjoyed.
It doesn’t take much heat at for Buttercream frosting to start to break down and look very unappealing, not to mention possibly get someone sick. I’m just saying… This treat needs to be refrigerated until served.
Happy Baking! 🙂
