Oreo Truffle Brownies

Whoever decided that the been-around-forever Oreo cookie smashed with cream cheese and covered in white candy coating tasted delicious was/is brilliant, I tell you. But I’m not going to lie, the Oreo truffle itself can be a bit time consuming and let’s face it, they’ve been around for so long, it was high time to morph the Oreo truffle into…say…a brownie! Now that’s brilliant!

After seeing the general idea on Pinterest, I decided to create my own tweaked version. Basically what we have here is a simple, rich brownie, baked and cooled and then topped with the famous Oreo truffle mixture. Drizzled with white chocolate (or white candy coating if you prefer) and woila! You have the Oreo Truffle Brownie.

It’s decadent. It’s sinful. And it’s seriously the newest, coolest way to enjoy the almighty Oreo truffle. Trust me, you don’t want to get left behind on this one.

Oreo Truffle Brownies

Ingredients

    For the brownies:
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Oreo Truffle and Topping:
  • 26 Oreo or other chocolate-sandwich cookies
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened
  • 4 ounces white chocolate or white almond bark

Directions

  1. For the brownies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate chips. Stir constantly and remove from heat when the chocolate is fully melted. In the same pot, whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Then add eggs, blending fully one at a time. Add the flour and salt and stir until well combined. Pour the batter into a greased 9 X 13-inch pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the heat down to 325 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let the brownies cool completely.
  2. For the Oreo truffle topping, crush the Oreo cookies and mix with the softened cream cheese until the mixture is well-combined. I find the best method is to lightly crush the Oreo cookies and then mix the cookies with the cream cheese in an electric stand mixer, food processor or with a handheld mixer. Lightly press the Oreo truffle mixture over the cooled brownies.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate or almond bark on low power at 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate into the corner of a ziploc bag. Carefully snip a small piece off the corner and drizzle the chocolate across the brownies. Alternately, you can cut the brownies into squares and then drizzle with the chocolate. Chill the brownies in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set (10-20 minutes). Cut into slices and serve. In my opinion, these brownies taste best chilled but you can also serve them at room temperature.

    I love your recipes. I check your blog weekly. These recipes are practical for me, and I love that! Thank you for a wonderful website!

  2. Heidi says:

    Yummmmm!! But my dear, may I ask. How are you able to bake, move, and be a mama to 4 kids + a new born? You’re a bionic woman! I hope you’re all handling all this big change! I will definitely still be your #1 fan if you need to take a breather. Xoxo

  3. These brownies look so inviting!

  4. Oreo truffles are the bomb! I just made cookies with an Oreo truffle swirl – I guess I’ll have to whip out the Oreos again and make these brownies!

  5. Teresa R. says:

    I’ll be making these this weekend! We had your broccoli salad yesterday and it was so good that I had some for breakfast this morning.

  6. These are going to made…sooner rather than later :)

  7. Cammee says:

    My son will die over these since Oreos are his all time favorite cookie, which is really sad because I have some mad cookie baking skills! These might be just the tool to lessen the “you need to go mow the lawn” struggle.

  8. Sandee says:

    mel, you are evil. ;)

  9. Oh my gawd yes! Pure genius! Pining now, to make today!

  10. Ann-Britt says:

    Ummm look so good. Sadly I do not think that I can get chocolate chips here in Denmark. Would love to make these.

  11. Laura says:

    @Ann-Britt, that made me laugh because I just delivered a few big bags to my sister in Denmark! I don’t know which part of Denmark you are in but, if you go to Malmo, check out the British shop for them. I noticed they had a few American things too. Otherwise, I would just chop up some semi-sweet chocolate bars and try that instead. Your next problem might be the Oreos ;)

  12. Stacy P says:

    Can I love you and hate you at the same time for this recipe?

    **made your banana bread this week and it was loved by all and eaten in one day. then I FINALLY made some real yeast bread from your recipe and it turned out and was eaten in the same day. Now I’ll have to make these so they can be eaten in the same day.
    I’m seeing a theme here…..

  13. TrishInFL says:

    I’ll be making these very soon! Thank you for another great recipe :-)

  14. Oh…MY…Goodness…these sound and look so good and perfect for my love hate addition with oreos :-) Can’t wait to try!!!!

    i’m speechless.

  21. I love your recipes wow!!! I normally do not like to make desserts but all these recipe I will sure try
    Thanks

  22. Lisa says:

    Made this tonight. This is definitely one that should be thought out and made ahead of time. I popped this in the oven about an hour before company came and then realized it needed to cool and chill. Opps. Ended up tasting rich and fantastic, but the truffle layer mixed a little with the brownie cuz I didn’t let it cool and had to hurry along the process by putting it in the freezer. Not the prettiest presentation, but tasted oh so delish. Was curious if you thought a boxed brownie would work in a pinch (I know- gasp!)

  23. Renee says:

    Just made this recipe, i love your blog all the way from austalia and so do many of my friends and family beacause l share the food with them… I had trouble spreadimg the oreo layer though.
    Thanks for your amazing recipes

  24. Sandra says:

    This is wrong on all levels and I absolutely love it!!

  25. Ann-Britt says:

    @Laura, I just found a place where I can get them on the internet. But I will be sure to check out the British Shop as I have an upcoming trip to Malmø planned with my daughter, her schoolfriend and the friends mother. I’ll take them with me to visit that shop too, Thanks for your help.

  26. Lauren says:

    @Lisa – i made these tonight using a box mix for the brownie portion…worked great! and as far as spreading the oreo topping, i just used my hands (washed of course) and patted it down.

  27. Jackie says:

    When I read this I thought “these look SO good. I definately shouldn’t make them.” Well, I did anyway. First I opened my bag of chocolate chips and they were MOLDY! Really, moldy??? Whoever knew chocolate chips could mold, but they did. At that point, once again I thought, “maybe I shouldn’t be making these.” Later as I was crushing the oreos and the ziplock bag burst open showering my kitchen with oreos I again thought “maybe I shouldn’t be making these”. I proceeded anyway. After crushing more oreos and leaving the kitchen for a bit I came back only to find that my 1 and 4 year old boys (and another male that lives at my house that I won’t name, but is the one that is supposed to be a good role model to the little ones) had eaten them. I crushed more while thinking, “I shouldn’t be making these.” I continued on though and then as I single handly ate half the pan I once again though, “I really shouldn’t have made these.” Was it worth it though? Every single bite was definately worth it!

  28. Susan from WA says:

    These were a HUGE success for my son’s birthday today. My husband (who refuses to eat cake on account of it being dry) informed me that I can make these for his next birthday. Love, love your recipes, Mel. Thanks for helping me feed my family with style and ease. And your commentary! Let’s just say you make me chuckle so often.

  29. Meg says:

    Woah! First of all, great and easy brownie recipe! I lined a glass 9×13 with tinfoil, baked as instructed and they came out beautifully! Perfect! My kids and I just made the oreo truffle mixture, pressed it on gently by hand as another commented suggested, then melted my chocolate chips in a ziploc bag and squished it around at 30 second intervals. . . one less bowl to clean. Um, these are ridiculously delicious! It tastes like some cheese-cake-brownie dream or something! Thanks so much! We ALWAYS love your recipes!

  30. Meg says:

    And one final addition- I brought these to a party last night, and people were moaning over them and begging for the recipe! I’ve sent a bunch of people your way:)

  31. [...] Oreo Truffle Brownies recipe slightly adapted from: Mel’s Kitchen Cafe  [...]

  32. [...] Oreo Truffle Brownies eli suomeksi väännettynä Domino-Tryffeli-Browniet tai jotain sinnepäin. Alunperin oli aikomukseni tehdä jotain leivonnaista, johon tulisi Domino-keksejä jossain muodossa. Lähdin metsästämään reseptiä googgelista hakusanalla Oreo cheesecake. Monen mutkan kautta päädyin näihin pieniin suklaisiin herkkuihin, vaikka ajattelin, että nyt teen jotain, johon ei suklaata tule, mutta toisin kävi. Ohje kuulosti niin erilaiselta, että sitä oli pakko kokeilla. Kuorruteosuus vaikutti hyvin mielenkiintoiselta, sillä se muistutti cookie-pops taikinaa(en ole kylläkään koskaan tehnyt niitä, katsellut vain reseptejä). Pieni pala näitä riittää taltuttamaan makeanhimon. Kuten nimestä voi päätellä nämä ovat jotain tryffelin ja brownien väliltä. Niin ja se kuorrute oli tosi hyvää… Alkuperäisen ohjeen voi katsastaa täältä [...]

  33. Casey says:

    This is the recipe I use all the time for brownies! I was wondering… have you ever used a different flavor “chip” for making just the brownie layer alone? I was thinking about using butterscotch chips today. I hope they turn out good!

    • Mel says:

      Hi Casey – nope, I’ve never used a different flavor of chip for the brownies. Good luck if you try it – keep in mind that many other chips don’t melt as well as chocolate chips.

  34. Casey says:

    It was pretty good! It’s not so much a brownie texture, more of a chess square maybe? But it has a really good flavor!

  35. Amanda says:

    What kind of white chocolate do you use? Because I’ve tried 3 times now with 2 different kinds of white chocolate and neither of them were “drizzle-able”, all 3 times the bags busted out at the seams because the white chocolate will not melt into a liquid.

    • Mel says:

      Amanda – I’ve found that white chocolate chips don’t melt very well so I almost always use the white baking bars (found by the chocolate chips). I can usually find the Baker’s brand in my area.

  36. Logan says:

    Hey Mel! Would these keep well fridge, making them the day before they are eaten? Made then last year for an event and they were requested again:)
    The rest of the menu is all yours as well;)

  37. […] course, was the day.  Last night (with a bit of help from him, I confess) I tried this recipe for Oreo Truffle Brownies, and after dropping my preschooler off at, you know, preschool, the boy and I went on to […]

  38. Brittany C says:

    Oh, Mel! I am so glad I came across this recipe when I was searching through your brownie recipes for inspiration. I made them for our Sunday family dinner and holy moly! To say these were a hit would be a MASSIVE understatement! THEY ARE BOMB! All my siblings made me send them the link right then and there. Thank you! We will definitely be making these again and again!
