We decided to take the brownie batter Oreo to new heights with this Brownie Batter Oreo Cookie recipe that embraces the chocolatey-brownie flavor of the cookie for a double-chocolate brownie with an added cookie crunch.  

You can simplify this from-scratch method with your favorite brownie in a box recipe. Just preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and mix the batter according to the package’s instructions. Next, pour half the batter into the bottom of the pan. Line the pan with half of the package of Oreos and pour the remaining batter evenly on top, covering the Oreos. Finally, bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes. Bake for less time if you like your brownies slightly under-baked and fudgy.
