These deserve an extra brownie point! What’s better than a warm ooey gooey brownie fresh out of the oven?... No seriously, I’m asking because I can’t think of anything better! This chocolate brownie recipe will become your new go-to recipe - it’s super easy to make and soooo delicious. Brownies are fantastic on their own but also stacked up with other treats! Such as a cheesecake square like in my Hibernation Mini Treats!

  • Add your butter and chocolate to a heatproof bowl and place it over a pot of water. Let the water come to a boil then switch it off (the steam will continue to melt the chocolate and butter) then mix it all together with a wooden spoon until smooth.

  • Remove your melted chocolate from the heat then whisk in your granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and salt.

  • Crack 4 eggs into a small bowl. In another separate bowl, crack two more eggs but only keep the yolks. Add your eggs and vanilla in with the chocolate mixture then continue to mix.

  • Sift in your flour and cocoa powder on top and fold them both into the batter. Mix until all ingredients are combined.

  • Pour your batter into a 9x13” pan lined with parchment paper and use a rubber spatula to spread it out evenly Line Oreos on top of your brownie then bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes.

  • Once your brownies have cooled, carefully remove the sheet from the pan (use a cake board to flip the sheet over to reveal the Oreos if flipped.  Take a ruler and a large chef’s knife and cut your brownies into equal squares.
