So I may have texted my husband almost in tears when I had finished photographing these Oreo Stuffed Red Velvet Brownies and realized that there was no memory card in my camera. I’m thinking he was secretly glad that I was at home manning resting time for our three youngest children and he was at our 8 year old’s basketball game, thus he was unable to witness my meltdown in person.
I must say I was quite proud of myself and no tears were actually shed. The show must go on right? That’s why I’ve now made two pans of these brownies in less than four days. No complaints here!
These decadent Oreo Stuffed Red Velvet Brownies were an absolute hit at our impromptu Super Bowl party this past weekend. So much so that I then made them again so I could actually have photographs to share with the recipe.
Crazy concept, right? I have a feeling I’ll be making them again soon as my sister-in-law could be president of the red velvet fan club and once she see’s what I’ve been up to, well, I might as well head towards the kitchen now.
This dessert is a delicious collision of three of my favorite sweets. My One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Brownies, Oreos and my Microwave Chocolate Ganache. If the three are awesome on their own, together they are hands down my new favorite dessert. When you hear people raving upon first bite, you know you have a winner!
These Oreo Stuffed Red Velvet Brownies are deliciously decadent! A thick, fudgy red velvet brownie base is stuffed with Oreos and then covered with a layer of chocolate ganache and even more crumbled sandwich cookies.
My idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. Grab a couple glasses of milk and a few brownies and cuddle up on the sofa with a movie. I’m so not high maintenance, even if my husband my argue otherwise some days.
If I was a betting person, I’d guess you have all the ingredients in your kitchen for these Oreo Stuffed Red Velvet Brownies already. And the fact that you can prepare them in just 15 minutes? I think that’s argument enough for you to scrap the idea of hitting a store for a heart shaped box of candy and making brownies instead.
Your Valentine will thank you, guaranteed.
How to Make Oreo Stuffed Red Velvet Brownies
 In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter.
 Add cocoa and coffee to melted butter.
 Stir together to combine.
 Add sugar, eggs and vanilla to saucepan.
 Stir together until well combined.
 Add vinegar and food coloring to saucepan.
TIP: I prefer to use gel food coloring rather than traditional food coloring as it’s more concentrated which means you don’t have to use as much of it to achieve the desired color.
 Stir until food coloring is completely combined
 Add flour, baking powder and salt.
 Stir together until just combined
 Pour batter into greased 9″ x 13″ baking pan and smooth into an even layer.
 Place Oreos onto batter evenly into four rows and six columns.
TIP: I LOVE Oreos! I’ve used both original Oreos and the Double Stuf varieties in this recipe with equally delicious results.
 Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until just set and a toothpick inserted into the center removes cleanly.
 PrepareMicrowave Chocolate Ganache per recipe instructions.
 Allow brownies to cool for five minutes before covering with chocolate ganache.
 Garnish with crushed Oreos and refrigerate until set.
TIP: A typical package of Oreos will have approximately six cookies left over to crush for the garnish of these brownies.
