White Chocolate Oreo Brownies

White Chocolate Oreo Brownies

I've had a momentous achievement in the time between this post and the last. Wait for it...... I've finally learnt how to flip an omelette! Though I've tried a lot, the omelette ends up scrambled most of the time. Not this time though, it flipped beautifully and I had a gorgeous omelette like the ones they serve at cafes. I'm quite proud, even though I get how stupid this sounds, considering my utter lack of cooking skills, it's enough to have made my day. I've learnt how to make pasta and a few other basic things, and while it's turning out to be quite fun to cook, I think I'll learn properly once I'm back home, from Mom.

Anyway, back onto the brownies. SRC took a break last month, to do some re-arranging and a revamp of the rules. I am now officially handling it's Facebook page, which is a super fun thing to do. The group is turning out to be a lot of fun, I actually ended up missing it, and made my recipe almost as soon as we were given our secret assignments, more than a month ago.

This month, I received Eliot's Eats as my blog, which was super interesting because it's written by this couple, that keep their identity anonymous. The name comes from T.S Eliot. I haven't seen anonymous food bloggers around too much, so I was totally kicked by this, and the privelege of being anonymous is something I wish I had too, at times. There's just so much I could have been able to say. Their blog has a lot of stuff on travel and adventure, but I zoomed in onto the food stuff, and after quite some deliberation, picked these White Chocolate Oreo Brownies, that she too made for a SRC post. I'd never baked with white chocolate before, other than the occasional ganache, so I was quite pumped. And I bought a ton of oreos once, which I wanted to use up rather than just pig out on them.

These were so so good. They browned a little too much, but that's because I haven't gotten used to this new oven yet. They tasted amazing, not overly sweet as I had worried, and the Oreo's added amazing flavor. A great recipe to keep, especially when you need something quick and easy.

White Chocolate Oreo Brownies
Recipe from Hugs & Cookies xoxo via Eliot's Eats

1 stick [113 g / 8 oz] butter
1 cup [170 g / 6 oz] white chocolate chips
1/2 cup + 1/8 cup [ 150 g] sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tbsp vanilla
1 cup [120 g]  flour
1/4  t. fine sea salt
15 oreos, cut into quarters

Instructions -
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F [160 C]. Grease and line a 9x9 pan, leaving some overhang of the foil to make it easier to pull out later
  2. In a small pan under low heat, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly. Be careful, white chocolate burns easily, so use a double boiler if you're comfortable with that. Remove from heat.
  3.  Stir in the sugar. Now add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well. Fold in the flour and salt, stirring until just combined. Toss in the chopped oreos.
  4. Pour into prepared pan, and bake for 30 minutes, until a wooden skewer inserted comes out clean. Enjoy :)

  1. Thanks, Avanika! I am really honored. This recipe is one that gets quite a lot of hits! They are pretty easy to make (if you can keep oreos in the house) and I have made them quite a few times using different oreas (peanut butter, mint, different colored holiday-themed ones). Nice to meet ya' and I'm glad you got our blog!

    1. I'm sure it does. I've never seen flavored Oreos, either here in the UK, or back home in India :( I'm sure they'd be amazing to bake with though. I wish I lived in America!

  4. How funny you chose this recipe b/c it was this post from Eliot's Eats that made me become a follower of hers! I still dream about them from time to time-they are so beautiful! :) Great job, and great job learning how to turn an omelet. I haven't quite mastered that myself.

    1. It was. Unfortunately, living in student accomodation doesn't allow you to eat too many. There are way too many hungry mouths around :P
