Oreo Brownies. .courtesy of My Sis!

Fall is one of my favorite times for baking! My kitchen has been buzzing with activity. .mainly with trying out new recipes ideas that are starting to stack up.  This recipe though, was put in our family cookbook by my sister. We were hungry for chocolate dessert the other day, so Cami and I whipped some up.
She insisted on helping. .so I put her to work crushing oreos with her fist. .
(yes. .there was a huge mess. .but she had a great time)
. .and measuring them into the cup. We dumped a cup of coarsely (and I mean coarse) crushed oreos into a family sized brownie mix. .preparing and baking the mix as described on the box.
We chose to use white frosting to cover the cooled brownies. .and then sprinkled another 2/3 cup oreos on the top.
Cut 'em up and serve 'em on a plate. .ours were pretty messy!
Or. .you can get kinda Martha Stewart-ish. .and put 'em on an orange plate and dress 'em up with Halloween sprinkles!
Which is what we did to increase the cool factor in order to take them to a BBQ last Saturday night. I went home with an empty plate, so it must have worked!
Make sure you pick up the supplies today so you can try them out on your family this weekend!
Enjoy them as you do some fall yard work, or while you just sit and enjoy nature, or even while you take in some college football!!
Wishing you a GREAT weekend!
