Oreo Madness! Hmm, that's strange, my pants feel tighter.

In case you are new around here, I've started posting a recipe every Sunday. Feel caught up? Awesome.

Before we get started, I would just like to state that I am in no way, shape, or form responsible for any weight gained as a result of reading this post.

I am completely innocent. Blame the links. Blame the internet. Blame the chocolate. But please don't throw rocks at my house tomorrow morning when you step on the scale. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Okay, so it all started when my friend Joanne posted this recipe saying she couldn't wait to make it.

Well when I saw the pictures, neither could I!

So I went out, bought all the ingredients, and yesterday we made it! Yea, go me! Super Brownie Baker! Mega Mommy power!...

*cough* Err... who's writing this post anyway? Weirdo.

As I was saying, I made the recipe yesterday. I even took the following pictures for documentation.

I've got your undivided attention now, don't I!

But honestly, the recipe was kind of a flop. So, from the bottom of my loving little heart, secretly hoping that the original poster of this recipe won't read this and blow my car up, I would like to say in the kindest way possible, DON'T MAKE IT!!

The caramel in the middle was hard, the oreo was stuck to the bottom of the paper which you had to peel away, and the brownie mix was barely cooked. Basically you're eating hot, uncooked brownie mix.

Not that that is a problem for me neseccarily but my kids nor my husband didn't appreciate it very much. And I know probably grosses some of you out there reading this.

Sooooooooo, that being said, I modified the recipe and it turned out oodles better!!

So with further ado, I present for your thorough enjoyment and just in time for swim suit season:

Oreo Madness

20 Oreo Cookies; coursely chopped
Caramel square candies
Brownie mix (either your own or your favorite box mix)
Hot fudge
Whip Cream

Start by lining your cupcake tins with baking cups. Make brownie mix and stir in coursely chopped oreos. Next, cut a caramel square in half to place inside each baking cup.

Pour brownie/oreo mix over caramel squares until about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 25 minutes. Cool slightly then lather in whip cream and hot fudge topping.

I'm sure it would be okay to toss a few oreo crumbs on top as well.

Eat warm and thoroughly enjoy. Makes about 14 chocolate yumminesses. (I totally should have written the dictionary. Just think of all the cool words we could be saying, like yumminesses!)  

And now, I never want to see this recipe again. I ate WAY too much hot fudge out of the jar.

I may have gained five pounds just reading this post. And now I want to make them.

Charlotte said...

Dear Serene,

You are evil.

I love you.

Is it possible to make these in a hidden way so I can keep them all to myself?

Love, me.

I'm impressed that you were able to salvage the recipe and turn it into a good thing. When I try to do little adjustments like that, the "not that good" thing I'm trying to fix ends up turning into a really, really "not that good" thing.

In other words, I am not creative in a culinary sense. But you sure are!


Linda said...

That is just wrong. I gained 5 lbs just looking at it.

Heidi said...

Go you with your modifications. This reminds me of my double chocolate caramel cake cookies I made--only no whipped cream. And no hot fudge either. Hmm. I really have to be in the mood for caramel, so I'll put these yumminesses on the back burner (ha ha) and go back to eating my piece of pineapple upside down cake (a cake which I do not like) and my piece of cheesecake (a cake which I have a hard time handling. I hope the hamburger washes it down well.

And, yes, if you're wondering why I'm eating SUCH things at 2 am...well, actually, maybe you don't wonder but rather empathize. :-)

Ahh...the good ol' days...when I could get away with eating all these kind of goodies...I LOVE CARMEL...I LOVE WHIP CREAM (my favorite part of
ANY TREAT!) and chocolate...I don't miss so much...I know...blasphemy on this blog...! Now, that I have dreamt those "good ol' days...It is back to "reality"...Must concentrate on making my "green smoothies"...(smile)

Oh...did I mention...I have lost "18" pounds???? (smile) and your dad has lost "33"???? Added bonus...Hyrum has lost nearly "20"...

I really should have turned back when I first saw the photos. Oh goodness!
This baby weight is never coming off now! Well, out of the three moms in my ward who gave birth last month, I'm the fattest. That really, really motivates me. Then again, it kinda makes me feel like giving up and eating a whole batch of these by myself.

My secret dream is that when people meet me after reading my book and seeing my photo, they'll say, "He looks skinner in real life." To that end, I am working to lose a good 20-30 pounds. This post was the wrong thing for me to read today.

Valerie said...

Sounds like an easy way to make good brownie cakes GREAT! I love caramel (and I'm making something caramely today). Great job fixing the recipe!

annie said...

I am so making these- anything with caramel in it is my best friend!
