So I realize I’ve been promising cookie recipes for a while, and while these aren’t exactly cookies, they will blow your mind with their deliciousness. But first, a quick anecdote.
For my whole life, I have been an Oreo HATER. I literally despised them. They seemed like they should be so good, but then you take a bite, and the cookies are too dry and the white stuff (what is that, even?) did hardly anything to help it’s aridity. And so often, I found myself somewhere where people had food, and the dessert/snack they brought that EVERYONE loved, was Oreo’s. Always Oreos. One day, I was at a retreat with my school, and all us girls were hanging out, eating junk, when lo-and-behold, there came the Oreos. Again. But all of a sudden, someone smart (actually brilliant, if you ask me) pulled out a tub of peanut butter. “What’s that for?” I asked. “Why the Oreos of course!” She may or may not have said those exact words, I can’t remember, but it’s all the same to me. Nonetheless, I was shocked. Peanut butter and Oreos? Who would’ve thought! I was told I just had to try them, so, deciding to be brave and give them a shot, I took a bite and fell instantly in love. And from that day on, I still hate Oreos, but with peanut butter??? Now THAT I will eat.
So what does all of this have to do with anything you ask? Well, shortly after discovering this amazing combination, I discovered this wonderful recipe for Peanut Butter Oreo Brownies.
It even sounds amazing, I know. Since this original discovery, I have made these several times, and each time when I give any away, I get request after request to make them again.
I found this recipe on lifeallover.com. So no, I am not the mastermind behind it (although I think they got it from another blog too), just the loving consumer.
Here is my experience with them: Eat happy!
Love, Just Jo
