I always wanted to stuff brownies with something delicious and this gave me the perfect option. When you bite into these brownies the combination of textures is amazing. I love the crunchiness of the outside of the brownie and the Oreo cookie combined with the soft velvety brownie.
This is the type of dessert you don’t feel guilty eating because every bite was totally worth it. Plus, I love a classic black and white anything- it’s just so chic!
A view from above…I love the scattered, haphazard look of these brownies floating on the sheet tray.
