I’ve got a special treat for you today, Brownie Bites with Oreo Frosting. Crispy bite-size brownies with a soft chewy interior, topped with decadent cookies and cream frosting.
Marketers always know how to get me.
Until I made this recipe, I hadn’t bought a package of Oreo cookies in years. Literally years.
Usually I can walk down the cookie and snack aisle at the grocery store, bypassing the junky snacks (on toward the less junky snacks) very easily. I always tell myself that if I want sweets I’m better off making them myself.
A good deterrent, yet not restrictive.
However, the other day I was meandering through the aisles with my coffee in hand (which I cannot resist at the grocery store) and happened to look up in the cookie section.
There they were… Mini Oreo Cookies. I was doomed.
I’m the kind of girl who cannot resist baby animals or cute food. If I see a miniature bite of anything a sing-songy, “Awwwwwwe!!!!” always escapes my lips.
It’s a personal problem. I’m currently in therapy trying to fix it. *wink*
Anyway, I blinked and the Mini Oreos were in my grocery cart. I justified this slip by telling myself I would make something with them. Something just as itty bitty and awe-worthy.
So today I’m sharing my personal guilty pleasure treat, Brownie Bites with Oreo Frosting.
This simple brownie bites recipe is the perfect platform for Oreo frosting. They are rich, chocolatey, crispy on the outside, chewy in the center, and terribly cute.
Brownie Bites with Oreo Frosting are a great way to have your daily treat without going overboard. That is, as long as you only pick up one or two, then run away from the platter holding the rest of them.
My Brownie Bites recipe is a great “base recipe” for all sorts of brownie bite treats. After you try them with the Oreo Frosting, consider add-ins likes mini Reeses cups or cherries.
But you have to, have to, have to make the Oreo Frosting first. It is divine.
I finely crushed the Oreos so they would be small enough to fit through a large piping tip, then mixed them into a creamy frosting base for a cookies and cream frosting flavor.
Then I piped the frosting on top of the brownie bites and garnished them with a Mini Oreo Cookie.
Touché Oreo. Touché.
Brownie Bites with Oreo Frosting are fabulous for fall parties and lunch box treats. They are reminiscent of childhood, yet rich enough to satisfy a distinguished palate.
…Plus they are so darn cute, who could resist?
