Based on my go-to brownie recipe (featured in the “Comfort Baking” cookbook), these dense, decadent, crinkly-topped brownies are baked with chopped Oreo cookies and topped with a simple icing for the ultimate easy dessert.


Units Scale

For the brownies:

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup (4 oz) semisweet chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped (about 1 heaping cup)

For the icing:

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk or heavy cream



  • Store leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • You can freeze these brownies, fully baked and cooled. Tightly cover the fully cooled brownies (uncut) with plastic wrap and foil, then freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw, covered, at room temperature for several hours before slicing.
