RECIPE: Oreo Stuffed Thin Mint Brownies

This blog contains sponsored content.

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season which means we celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend! This celebrates the largest girl-led business in the world and I am very pleased to blog about their incredibly delicious cookies!

With nearly 25,000 cookie entrepreneurs in Northeast Ohio, we are lucky to have access to cookies!  National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend is a holiday truly worth celebrating (hello, it’s about cookies and supporting our girls, what’s not to like?), mark your calendars for National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend on February 26-28, 2016.

Selling Girl Scout Cookies has helped girls have fun, develop valuable life skills, and make their communities a better place. Moreover, I have learned a lot about the Girl Scouts and the positive message they send to young girls.  Cookies and confident women are definitely a win-win situation in my book!

Girl Scout Cookies will start arriving by the truckload February 27, and cookie booths begin March 3. To find a cookie booth in your neighborhood, to purchase cookies or to learn about joining Girl Scouts download the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder on iPhone or android, or visit girlscoutcookies.org. Also, find them on Facebook @Girl Scouts of North East Ohio

So, back to cookies.

My love of Thin Mints is no joke, and my husband’s love of Oreo’s is legendary.  So, I have created a dessert recipe to satisfy us both.

This is all using just ONE bowl. I love to cook and bake, but I don’t like doing dishes, so any recipe that requires minimal washing is a winner in my mind.

Instructions
For the crust
  1. Preheat oven at 375⁰F. Crush 18 Thin Mints. (I put them in a gallon size Ziploc bag and use a rolling pin. This is a great way to get out aggression too!)
  2. Melt 2 Tablespoons butter in the one bowl you will use for this recipe. (For simplicity, just melt the butter in the microwave, 30 second increments works well for me.)
  3. Dump crushed Thin Mints into bowl with melted butter, add 3 Tablespoons water and mix.
  4. Spray 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Put cookie-butter-water mixture in pan, spray your fingers, and press cookie mixture down and out to edges. The cooking spray keeps it from sticking to your fingers (a nifty trick I use often).
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, take out and let cool.
For the brownies
  1. Set oven at 350⁰F.
  2. While crust is baking, melt 4 oz chocolate chips and 3 Tablespoons butter, stirring until smooth. (I microwave for 30-60 seconds and stir between nuke sessions until melted.) Let cool slightly.
  3. Whisk in sugar and vanilla (mixture will look grainy). Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking well (mixture will look glossy and smooth).
  4. Stir in the salt and the flour, stirring until the mixture is just combined.
  5. Pour half of the batter into the 8x8 pan with Thin Mint crust. Place 16 Oreo cookies in the pan.
  6. Then pour the remaining batter on top.
  7. Place in oven for 10 minutes (set at 350⁰F), and then take out of oven and crumble 6 Thin Mints on top.
  8. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  9. Cut, eat, and enjoy! Another excellent trick I learned from my best friend (who is a chef), cut brownies with a plastic knife and you’ll get crumb-free squares (crumbs do not stick to the plastic! Whoa)!
