I have no control over myself when it comes to eating/doing stuff that I love. Once I take an Oreo or 2, I see them as warm-ups for the next 5 or 10 that will soon be consumed. Wait for about 2 minutes...okay, I'm ready now for the full course.
Even without the Oreos these brownies would be amazing. They are very, very fudgy. Not for cake-like brownie lovers. :) Just imagine one of the moistest brownies you have ever had and then throw in some chopped up mint Oreo cookies. Ta-da! That is basically what these taste like. Fudgy with bits of crunchy, minty goodness. Eat your heart out!
Mint Oreo Brownies
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 pan with foil.
In a small bowl. Sift together the flour and cocoa powder. Whisk in the sea salt and set aside.
In a medium saucepan. Melt the butter and unsweetened chopped chocolate until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Remove from heat. It will look 'grainy' because of the sugar but don't worry. Whisk/stir in the eggs one at a time. Beat well after each addition. You should now have a smooth, satin-like mixture. Add the flour/cocoa and stir until uniform. Stir in the Oreos. Pour into prepared pan. Crush some extra cookies over the top. Bake for about 35 minutes. A tester should be free of any batter but have a few moist crumbs.
