Fudgy Cookies and Cream Brownies

My Fudgy Cookies and Cream Brownies have the best Oreo flavor and were a HUGE hit when I made them. These rich brownies are topped with an Oreo-filled white chocolate topping, and they're simple to prepare!

THE BEST COOKIES AND CREAM BROWNIES
There were two things that were important to me as I worked on this recipe. First, the brownie on the bottom needed to be thick, chewy and fudgy to the max. Second, I wanted a topping that wasn’t simple a frosting stuffed with Oreos. That just didn’t feel like enough. And I wanted to be able to stack the brownies in a container without the frosting getting all over the bottoms. Is that weird?
Anyhow, I achieved both objectives and these brownies are just addictive. It’s not even fair.

To start, there’s the brownie base. To make these ultra fudgy, the amount of flour was kept to a minimum and there’s no leaver used. Both of those ingredients will lend a more cakey brownie, so they are kept under control here.

These brownies also use both cocoa powder and melted chocolate. I love using a little bit of both to get both the strong chocolate flavor that the powder gives while also getting a little extra fudgyness from the melted chocolate. I went with Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa in these brownies to try and mirror the dark color of Oreos, but you could also use regular unsweetened cocoa.
