It has been a long time since I have had brownies. Considering the amount of sweets I have had in the past week (between birthdays and Easter) and taking into consideration the amount of candy I have left stashed in my cupboards, I really did not NEED to make brownies this afternoon…or did I?
I was inspired by the Brownies with Oreos I saw on Vanilla Sugar and set into action by my pregnancy cravings (I really don’t know what I will do when I can’t use that as an excuse anymore). The result? Yum!
I used a box of “family size” brownie mix, following the directions as they were on the box.
Chopped up about 10 Oreo cookies (had a sampling of one with Moira).
Stirred the chopped cookies in to the batter.
Thawed and mashed about 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries.
Poured the batter in the pan and swirled the raspberries through it. Baked for about 10 minutes longer than the instructions on the box recommended (about 38-40 minutes for a 9×13 pan).
In the words of Moira, “Ta-ta-da” (she likes to add syllables into her words lately…funny).
I like mine warm with a scoop of (less-fat slow-churned) vanilla ice cream.
