This recipe was given to me by a young friend. It’s absolutely decadent!
It’s a little like the Roman banquet concept: a live bird baked within a bird within a bird – with the mythical chirruping bird flying free at the end!
Or the contemporary and rather prosaic analogy would be the turducken…
Use your favourite chocolate brownie recipe and chocolate chip cookie recipe and buy a packet of Oreo cookies.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Make your favourite brownie mixture and cookie mixture.
Line a large baking tin with baking paper and pour brownie mixture into the tin.
Place the tin with the brownie mixture into the oven. Cook for about 10 – 15 minutes.
Wrap the Oreo cookies in the chocolate chip cookie dough (make sure that none of Oreo cookies are showing).
Take the brownie mixture out of the oven (should still be runny) and place the cookie dough containing the Oreos into the brownie mixture. Make sure the cookies aren’t touching each other.
Place mixture back into the oven for a further 15 minutes (keep an eye on it as cooking time differs depending on oven power).
Test by inserting a skewer into the brownie mixture to see whether mixture is ready (it doesn’t matter if it’s a bit gooey as it continues to cook a little when out of the oven and it’s better to be a bit underdone than overcooked and dry). Remove from oven when you are happy with the set.
Cut into chunks when cool!
