Oreo Brownies - Pinterest Success #2

These brownies are from a recipe I saw on Pinterest and was just waiting for the right time to make them. I was asked to take brownies to the pompon team tailgate at MSU on Saturday, and was looking for a brownie recipe that was easy to make, different than the norm and delicious too. I ended up taking two kinds of brownies; my usual brownies, with chocolate chips and these Oreo Brownies. Both were gone before the end of the tailgate and the pompon girls and their families loved them.

The Pinterest inspiration came from this source, but I wasn't sure about the recipe, so I tweaked it a little bit. It seemed like it would be better to layer the Oreos in the middle of the brownies, instead of on the bottom. The Oreos become soft after baking and are a delicious surprise when you bite into the brownie. And, this recipe couldn't be any easier :-)

Oreo Brownies

1 box brownie mix for 13x9 pan (oil, eggs and water as directed)

1 package Oreos (update - use red Christmas Oreos for the holidays)

Prepare mix as directed on box. Pour 1/2 of brownie mix in 13x9 pan. Place Oreos in rows, on top of brownie mix, then top Oreos with remaining mix. Bake as directed. Allow to cool and cut in squares.

*note - I line the brownie pan with non stick foil. Just lift out foil after baking and brownies won't stick to pan.

Here is a sneak peek from our day. This cute little girl got her Spartan spirit going at the tailgate too. The groomers gave her a haircut last week and she looks so different than the last time I posted her photo here. She absolutely loved being there with all the game day fans.

Have a wonderful start to your week :-)
