Ever since I bought the Lorraine Pascale book, Baking Made Easy, I have been itching to make these Oreo Brownies. In all honesty I don't know why its taken me so long - you all know my obsession with Oreos! I remember watching Lorraine show how to make these in the tv series that went with the book and thinking what a genius combination!
So this weekend I finally got round to making them..why on earth did I not make these sooner?! The brownie recipe was gorgeously moist and super chocolatey and adding Oreos to the mix made them even better. If you don't have quite the same obsession as me for Oreos the recipe did make suggestions for other things that could be added, such as pecans. As I seem to have ended up with a cupboard full of Oreos (how did that happen?!) I think I can safely say I will be adding Oreos to mine for awhile.
I sent Karl off to work with the leftover brownies and apparently they were polished off pretty quickly. It seems the lads at his work also share my Oreo obsession!
To top it off..it made my day that when I tweeted to Lorraine Pascale on twitter that I'd made her brownies and how much I liked them, she tweeted back to say thanks!! It may have only been one word but it showed she'd taken the time to read my tweet and respond..hooray!
