Hey all, my name is Ashley, and I’ll be a contributor to Geek Eats. I discovered Pop Culture Uncovered through cosplay, and even had the honor of being featured. I’m super excited to join the site as a writer and I’ll start off in the sweetest way possible: dessert!
My roommates and I had a cheat day last Sunday, eating more than I care to admit. But once we’d scarfed down breakfast skillets, waffles, wings, hummus, and other goodies, we were ready for dessert. Normally, I bake everything from scratch, but when it’s 8pm on a lazy Sunday night, there’s nothing better than boxed mix. I have two recipes for you all that use mostly premade ingredients, so they don’t require a lot of thought. Easy and delicious, what more could you want?
What you’ll need:
Brownie mix (and any additional ingredients you need to make the brownies)
Preheat your oven and prepare the brownie batter as directed on the box.
Grease a cupcake pan and pour a little batter just to cover the bottoms of the cups. I found that a regular box of brownie mix to fill an 8×8 pan filled approximately seven cups in a 12-cup cupcake pan.
Take one Oreo and add a layer of peanut butter to the outside of one cookie. Stick a second Oreo onto the peanut butter side and add them to the cupcake pans.
Once you’ve added all the cookies, fill the rest of the cups with the leftover brownie batter. Pop the pan into the over for the recommended amount of time on the brownie box.
If I were to do this again, I think I would add another layer of peanut butter to the top of the Oreos or maybe a layer of Nutella. These are great warm, but the Oreos do have a tendency to harden a little once the brownies cool. I would recommend heating these and eating them with a large glass of milk.
