Official Notice: To all the peoples of the internets who are panicking that my entire site is going to turn into nothing but low carb recipes – this should set your hearts at ease. I may not be eating this stuff but I sure do like to cook it and I have a teenage boy – which goes hand in hand with a teenage boy’s metabolism.
The one thing that is always a win and always welcomed in my house is brownies. Seriously, they’re like Disneyworld, they make everyone happy. I think they may be my son’s first love.
The second thing my son loves are Oreo cookies. He is an Oreo nut. I have no idea why. I mean, they’re okay and all that but there has never been a time in my life to date that I have thought “oooh, I really need an Oreo.” Apparently, Brady has an entirely different thought process. For those following me on Instagram, remember the Giant Oreo Birthday Cake I made him last year?
Even Brady took a picture of it. Made me feel like I’d actually done good there for a minute….
So on his last day of traditional high school, I made him a batch of Oreo Stuffed Brownies to share with friends and his favorite teacher. It was a fitting note of sweetness to close one chapter and open another as he prepares to start early college in the fall.
No matter how big he gets, he’s still my baby – and my baby likes Oreos. He also likes asking his mother to bake something at the last minute. So today I’m giving you a recipe that accommodates both of those criteria. Let’s get to it!
To make these you’ll need: Brownie Mix, Oreos, and White Chocolate Chips. You’ll also need whatever your brownie mix says to add to mix them up according to package directions.
Now I LOVE this brand of brownie mix. In fact, if I’m going to make them from a mix this is the only kind I use these days. So that is just to let you know that if you haven’t tried it, you really should. I usually get mine at Big Lots. It runs around $2 a box there but there are two times a year when you can get 20% off your entire purchase (the friends and family sale event) so that is when I stock up on mixes and canned goods there, making this around $1.60 per box.

To make these:
- Mix up your brownies according to package directions.
- Add in ten broken Oreo cookies.
- Stir to incorporate.
- Spread batter into greased 8×8 baking dish. Bake according to brownie mix package directions.
As soon as the brownies come out of the oven, break up the remaining Oreo cookies and put on top. Very gently press them down just a little. Allow to cool completely.
Pour chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for thirty seconds at a time, stirring in between each, until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for a few minutes and place melted chocolate into a zipper seal freezer bag.
Snip corner off the bag and pipe melted chocolate in a zig zag over the top of brownies. Allow chocolate to cool and harden before cutting and serving.
Okay, now that’s pretty
Enjoy! Or do as I do, and watch your teenage son enjoy
Best of all, these are quick and easy, too!

- As soon as you remove brownies from oven, break up remaining cookies and place on top, pressing down very lightly. Allow to cool completely.
- Pour chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for thirty seconds at a time, stirring in between each, until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for a few minutes and place melted chocolate into a zipper seal freezer bag.
