These brownies are quite frankly ridiculous! But as we all know there are those times in life when only ridiculous trashy food will do. It’s hard to avoid these calorific delights if you end up scrolling through pinterest late at night and so here is my version.

Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line a 22 x 30cm baking tin with baking parchment.
Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and place in microwave for 30 second blasts, stirring after each one until the contents are completely melted.
With a hand-held electric mixer, whisk the sugar and eggs together for 2-3 minutes until pale and fluffy. Slowly add the melted chocolate and butter then add the vanilla extract and continue to whisk until thickened. Lastly, sift in the flour and baking powder and fold through gently.
Spread the cookie dough evenly across the base of the prepared baking tin. Arrange a layer of Oreo cookies across the top of the dough and then pour over the brownie batter.
Smooth the top and then bake in the middle shelf of the oven for 20 minutes until the top is firm and the brownie has come away slightly from the sides of the tin.
Allow the brownies to cool on a wire rack slightly before removing from the tin to cool completely.
Prepare the glaze by placing the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and place in the microwave for 30 second blasts as before, stirring until smooth. Whisk in the icing sugar and cream until smooth and set aside.
Pour the glaze over the brownies and allow to set slightly before slicing.

    Hello there can I know the amount of the sugar you put in for the top layer ? The chocolate and butter too?

    • All the ingredients in a list down the right hand side of the recipe or click the ingredient tab if you’re on a mobile device! :)

  • Raeesa Simjee

    Hello. please may I have a recipe for cookie dough

  • Grace McDonnell

    Hi. Are these suitable for freezing, or how long will they keep?
    I normally make edible gifts for family at Christmas (Jams, Chutney, Piccalli, Biscuits & Fudge). These could be a nice addition to the hampers. They look devine!

    • I’ve actually never tried freezing them but I would say they would be better fresh. You could make them a day or two ahead and frost when you need them. Hope that helps!

  • Absolutely you can make your own. I actually don’t have a straight chocolate chip recipe online but give it a google and you’ll find something for sure. :)
