Birthday Cake Oreo Brownies

Birthday Cake Oreo Brownies | ButtercreamBlondie.com

Happy Friday guys!  How about we kick off the weekend with some brownies?  Not just any brownies of course, double trouble cookies and cream brownies.  These over the top brownies have trouble written all over them, the type you’ll want to get involved in immediately.  I’m talking truffle brownies filled with birthday cake Oreos.  And just in case that’s not enough, how about a layer of decadent chocolate ganache poured on top with a few extra Oreos for good measure.  I told you they were trouble!

You guys know I’m all about my truffle brownies, but this time they’re a bit more decadent.  Okay, maybe a lot more decadent.  I picked up some birthday cake Oreos last week and knew brownies needed to happen asap.  Have you tried the birthday cake Oreos yet?  I’m a fan, but I also tend to think that anything labeled Birthday Cake is pretty spectacular.

These brownies are pretty fantastic on their own, but once you pour that chocolate ganache on top, we’re talking a whole new game here.  It works perfectly because as the brownies cool, they sink a little in the middle creating this little well.  It’s like the ganache is meant to be there ;)  A few more Oreos on top with a good dose of rainbow sprinkles and you’re looking at a party on a plate.

Although you will want to dive into these bad boys immediately, they need a good amount of time in the fridge so the ganache can firm up.  I refer to this time as torture.  All your patience will be well worth it once you make that first cut.  And while these overhead shots are fun, let’s get down to business.

That’s what I’m talking about people – rich, decadent, over the top brownie love.  Whatever you’ve got going on this weekend, I hope these are part of your agenda!  Happy baking!
