Gluten Free Living – 2017
You’re going to love Oreo Cream Brownies. Seriously, these gluten free brownies are amazing. They start with a gluten free brownie mix which are becoming more and more easily available these days. I picked mine up at Walmart.
Then there is an icing layer that’s spread on the cooled brownie layer. The icing is reminiscent of the stuffing inside Oreo cookies! Then the brownies are iced with a chocolate chip icing. They are absolutely scrumptious.
Last year we had friends lose a sister/(in-law). They asked me to arrange a funeral meal for them. Since she has Celiac Disease, I asked everyone to bring gluten free recipes and food. The gal who brought desserts, made GF Lemon Squares and this amazing dessert.
There were over 60 people at that funeral (98% with no gluten intolerance), and without a doubt the gluten free desserts were a big hit. Everyone raved over these Oreo Cream Brownies. I got the recipe because I knew I wanted to make them some time.
Well that time came when this same gal was back home from the hospital after more complications from Celiac. I made another gluten free meal for their family that included a Chicken and Green Bean Stir Fry with Ginger Sesame Sauce and this heavenly dessert.
While these brownies are gluten free, they are not particularly healthy. But if you’re gluten intolerant these brownies are an incredibly rich, decadent dessert that will rock your world! I refrigerated the brownies over night to try to get the brownies to cut better, but that didn’t work particularly well. So if you don’t mind a dessert that’s not exactly gorgeous, Oreo Cream Brownies will work remarkably well.
I share these brownies as part of our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. But they are also great brownies to take to tailgating parties, baby showers, or any kind of potluck or party because they’re sensational in taste and texture. In fact, no one will probably even realize these brownies are gluten free if you don’t tell them. If you want to enjoy the taste of Oreo cream in your brownies, then this recipe should do it for you. But be warned, Oreo Cream Brownies are addictive. You won’t be able to stop at just one!
Oreo Cream Brownies are sinfully rich, decadent brownies your family will love.
Unless someone told you these were gluten free, you’d never believe it!
Oreo Cream Brownies are addictive. They’re a great way to get your chocolate fix. 🙂
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place gluten free brownie mix in a mixing bowl. Add egg, oil and water.
Whisk to combine.
Grease an 8×12″ glass baking dish. Pour brownie mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Bake according to the length of time suggested on the brownie mix). Cool brownie layer completely before adding icing.
Combine Crisco shortening, sugar, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Beat with an electric mixer for two minutes.
Spread Oreo cream over top of cooled brownie layer.
Microwave chocolate chips in microwaveable safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir with a spoon. Microwave again for 30 seconds and stir chocolate mixture again. Microwave an additional 10 seconds or so and stir until chocolate is smooth.
Spread melted chocolate over top of Oreo cream. Allow brownies to set at least two hours before serving.
I actually refrigerated the bars over night to see if I could get them to come out of the baking dish a little better. But that didn’t work particularly well. (You normally do not have to refrigerate these brownies).
Oreo Cream Brownies are great for the sweet tooth lovers in your family.
If you enjoy sweets but suffer from gluten intolerance, these brownies are for you!
The thick Oreo cream makes these brownies divine!
