Oreo Caramel Brownie Bombs – Here’s what one fan had to say, “A coworker brought these in to the office yesterday. May I just say, they are the most delicious brownies I’ve ever had in my life.

And I’m an almost 50-yr-old passionate foodie with a lifelong chocolate addiction! They’re chewy, crunchy, gooey and soooo very chocolatey. Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe!!”

Today’s recipe got a lot of attention and was the object of some good-natured fun from members of our Rock Recipes Facebook Page, when I posted a couple of preview photos there yesterday. I asked for folks to suggest a name for this incredibly indulgent recipe.

Some of the suggestions, especially those from friends in private messages were of a nature that…well, let’s just say I wouldn’t want to enter any of them into a search engine!

Individually wrapped soft caramels are fine to use in this recipe.

These begin with a bottom layer of soft chocolate chip cookie, which is topped by broken Oreos and gobs of caramel. Then comes a layer of soft chocolatey brownie. It’s no wonder that this one ticks a lot of boxes for dessert and sweet lovers.

A drizzle of chocolate ganache to crown these beautiful squares may be over the top but when you’ve gone this far, why not?

  • 1 1/3 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

To make the cookie base

  1. Lightly grease a 9x9 baking pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
  4. Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, folding to combine well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Spread in the prepared baking pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F. (325 degrees for glass bake ware)
  7. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with the Oreo pieces and caramel candies.
  8. Pour the brownie batter evenly over everything in the pan.

To prepare the brownie batter

  1. Sift together flour, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
  2. Melt together butter and unsweetened chocolate over low heat.
  3. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.
  4. Add eggs,vanilla and sugars. Stir very well until sugars are dissolved.

Hi Barry - love your recipes. Made this today for my book club group tomorrow, and wanted to note that there is a step missing from 'making the brownie batter". Unless I missed it completely (and I read it over several times) it says to sift flour/cocoa/salt, then melt the butter and chocolate, cooling and adding the eggs and sugars. There is no instruction to add this mix to the flour mixture. I know it might be self evident, but it just halted my progress as I tried to make sure I hadn't missed a different step somewhere. In any event. just added flour mixture to chocolate mixture and beat it till smooth. I'm sure they will be delectable and my group is looking forward to them!!

One line was omitted, when our new software converted the recipe. Fixed now. Thanks.

I purchased your new cookbook and this was the first recipe I tried. Just took them out of the oven about half and hour ago, the top of the brownie looked done, but when I just poked at them, it's still quite liquid underneath! Any suggestions as to what went wrong here. Only difference I made to your instructions was a 8 inch square pan as opposed to a 9, so I added a few mins to the final bake time.

Thanks, new recipe book looks delicious!

There is a big size difference there although it doesn't seem like a lot. 81 vs 64 square inches.
