Welcome to Traveler in the Kitchen! Let's be friends on Facebook
I'm not big on buying packaged cookies. Why should I when I usually make my own? Or try something crazy at the farmer's market or a coffee shop. There is something about Oreos. It probably goes deep into this Traveler's mind to when I was 5 and only got to have Oreo's at my friend's house. Or something.
This summer I've seen more flavors that usual. And often they are on sale. Currently there is a package of Neapolitan Oreos in the pantry. I'm thinking about what I can do with them. But first things first, I needed to do something with the rest of the Peanut Butter Oreos. Other than dipping them in milk. First they went into these brownies. Then they went to a shark week viewing party.
Are you a shark week fan? It's addicting. We took over one of the TV's in our employee cafeteria and turned it to Discovery channel. Who needs two channels of news when you could watch sharks all day?
These brownies are super easy: 5 ingredients are ready to roll.
What You Need
1 box devils food cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cup chopped Peanut Butter Oreos
What You Do
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9x9 baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray (or use a silicone baking pan and skip the foil).
In a large bowl, combine the boxed cake mix, oil and egg. Slowly add the milk - the batter will be really thick and dense (you can add a little more milk if needed). Stir in 1 cup of the chopped cookies, you'll be keeping the remainder for the top.
Press the batter into the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the remaining cookies over the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let sit for at least 30 minutes and then cut into bars.
Do you have a favorite cookie or candy from your childhood? Heck, why not from your adulthood?
