Holiday Cookie season is here! It’s a little earlier than usual, but it’s 2020 and we could all use a little joy, even if it’s 6 weeks early. My inspiration for this week’s bake comes from a few leftover goodies from Halloween. Below is the recipe for my Oreo Fudge Brownie Cookies along with my tips, tricks, and don’ts that I did. This is a cookie recipe you’ll want to make all year; they’re that good!
Ingredients for Cookies
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 package (12oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 cup Gluten-Free Flour
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 package (12oz) of white chocolate chips
- 1.5 cups of crushed oreo wafers
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar (for topping the cookies)
Directions for Cookies
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine semi-sweet chocolate and unsalted butter. Microwave on high for 1.5 minutes or until the mixture is smooth when stirred. Set aside.
Mix eggs, sugar, and vanilla with hand mixer in large bowl until blended.
Add flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Mix on low until well combined.
Blend in chocolate mixture.
Fold in 1 cup of the crushed Oreos.
Stir in white chocolate chips.
Drop a tablespoon or cookie scoop of mixture onto parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until shiny.
Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes.
Move to cooling rack and top with remaining Oreos and powdered sugar.
Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts that I did
Be careful not to overcook your chocolate chips in the microwave. The texture should be smooth, not grainy. If it’s grainy, you’ve heated them for too long and will need to redo it.
Oreos are not gluten-free. To limit the amount of gluten in my batch of cookies I used gluten-free flour. You can use regular flour if you’d prefer.
This cookie recipe would be great with nuts too. Feel free to play with the ingredients and add any extras you like.
These cookies should be fudgy, not dry. If they look underbaked, don’t worry! As long as you’ve baked them for the time listed in the instructions they’re done.
These cookies are delicious reheated too. Microwave for 5 seconds and add a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.
As always, don’t forget to ENJOY!
