Thanks to everyone who entered the Oreo Fudge Cremes giveaway. Your comments were great, but I could only pick one (as usual), and the free sample goes to The Cookie Sleuth.
Thanks again for participating, and stop by tomorrow because I’ll be posting another fun giveaway.
As for the new Oreos, they’re delicious straight out of the bag, but I had to try baking them into brownies anyway. Rather than stir them into the batter, I layered the cookies so that I’d get stripes of white coconut filling when cut. They look pretty neat, eh? You can make these with any brownie recipe, but I used one of the old, original fudge brownie recipes and it worked out well. However, next time I might try a recipe with less butter. These were rich!
Coconut Oreo Fudge Brownies
- 1 stick 4 ounces unsalted or salted butter
- 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate chopped
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup 2.25 ounces all-purpose flour
- 24 Oreo Coconut Delight Fudge Cremes
- A little flaked coconut for garnish optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch metal square baking pan with nonstick foil or regular foil. If using regular foil, spray bottom with cooking spray.
- In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium. Reduce heat to low, add the chocolate, remove from heat and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla and salt without mixing. Just put them all in the bowl. Once they're all in the bowl, gently stir or whisk just until mixed (the point is not to beat in a lot of extra air).
- Stir in the melted chocolate mixture. When well mixed, stir in the flour.
- Spread a very thin layer of batter over the bottom of the pan to anchor cookies.
- Make 4 rows of 3 cookies (12) across the bottom of pan. Dot with a little more batter, then stack on another layer of 4 rows of 3 (12). Spread remaining batter so that you cover all the cookies. Sprinkle top with a little coconut if desired.
- Bake on center rack for 25 minutes. LET COOL COMPLETELY. Chill for 2 or 3 hours, then lift from pan and cut into 16 squares.
Just bought the Oreos this morning and they happened to be on sale for $2.49. They are pretty good–especially if you like coconut. They definitely scream to be put in something (like brownies). I might do ccc’s with them broken up and with coconut added.

Evil blogger…now I have to try these! 🙂
Plus the brownies I make all the time are only baked at 325. Though they are super easy and I do think they’re great, there are also many other recipes I’ve discovered that taste better, these are just the most simple. 😉 I’ll shut up now.
Mmm, I’ve got to find/get/taste those new Oreos. What stinks is I was just at the store today and didn’t even think about looking for them. 😉 That brownie recipe is similar to my go-to, but my recipe has less flour (1/4) and used cocoa instead of chocolate.
wow-thing! i love it! i put it on my list ! kisses!
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust
YES. I need these in my life!
This is a great idea for the extra Oreos. I will be making these, too! 🙂
Melissa, you should definitely try putting Oreos in brownies. You can use any recipe, or just use boxed mixed. Thanks for visiting Cookie Madness :).
Cheryl, yes! CS always has good cookies on tap.
Sue, if you like these than you’ll love the look of the Neapolitan version. Did you see that one a while back? I think the coconut version tastes better, though. I prefer coconut in brownies over strawberry.
Wow! This is an awesome recipe! I love Oreos and I love brownies! This is a great treat for after family parties when we are too full for ice cream but would love something sweet. Where did you find such a great recipe? I can’t wait to try this for myself and check out your book on Amazon!
Congrats to Cookie Sleuth and I’ve found another interesting blog to follow!
What a great use of the Oreos! The brownies look really pretty with the layers showing like that.
