Oreo Brownies (adapted from David Lebovitz via Smells Like Home, with inspiration from Beantown Baker)
- 1 c. butter
- 8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 1/2 c. sugar (feel free to decrease this...as I said, they turned out REALLY sweet)
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 c. flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 package of Oreos, roughly chopped
Combine butter and chocolate chips in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate and butter are thoroughly melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla extract, then beat in eggs, one at a time. Sift together flour and salt, then mix this into the chocolate mixture, stirring just until combined. Stir in the Oreos. Pour batter into a greased 9x13" pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted about an inch from the edge comes out clean.
