Brownie Batter Oreos

I have a stack of recipes on my ‘must make’ list, so I typically don’t make something twice — unless I have a special request or it is outstanding.  A couple of weeks ago I had gum graft surgery; it was probably one of the most painful things I’ve ever experienced.  But more than that, I am still limited on what I can eat.  It is killing me!  When I made the first batch of these, I was on mashed potatoes and milkshakes.  I managed to lick some frosting from my fingers, but that was all I got.  Matt and Gray both raved about them AND they are soft, so I made another batch on Saturday.

So yes, I’ve made two batches of these in less than two weeks.  But in my defense, half of the first batch went to a family at church…..and Matt and Gray demolished the rest.  This second batch — I refuse to share them.  Yep, they are really that good.  And I have a partially used box of brownie mix; it would be a sin to waste it.  I might have to make a third batch.

Brownie Batter Oreos

For the cookies:

  • 1 box devil’s food cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.  Sift the cake mix into a large bowl (Be sure to do this — I didn’t the first time, and my cookies had lumps) and stir in the remaining ingredients.  Roll into golf-ball size balls and place on cookie sheet, making sure you leave room for them to spread.  You’ll need to bake them in batches.  Bake for roughly 6 minutes, and then let cool.
For the filling:
  • 3/4 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powder sugar
Beat the first 6 ingredients with a hand-held mixer until smooth.  Slowly add in the powder sugar a little bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
Frost away.
