Overloaded Brownies

Overloaded Brownie (noun): [oh-ver-loh-did brou-nee] A delicious combination of chocolate chips, Oreo cookies, and fudge brownie topped with whipped vanilla frosting and crushed Oreo cookies.


Warning: Only true chocoholics should attempt the following recipe. Anyone not prepared may experience a chocolate coma and/or a massive food baby. Caution should be taken.

Some call it a miracle, others a mistake. I, however, like to refer to this recipe as a happy accident. One Fall night, my lack of organization led me to add a few extra ingredients to a simple batch of brownies. Of course, I couldn’t just throw out a perfectly good batch of uncooked brownies, so I made it work; and thus, Overloaded Brownies were born in all their glory.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package Oreo cookies (you won’t need the whole package)
  • 1 container Betty Crocker “Fluffy White” whipped frosting

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine fudge brownie mix with eggs, water, and vegetable oil as instructed on the back of the box.
  • Take out all of your anger by crushing about 7 to 10 Oreo cookies in a bowl (I usually beat them with an ice cream scoop, but more serious bakers may want to use some sort of blender).
  • Poor the crushed Oreos into the chocolaty mixture and stir until combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips into the already overindulgent concoction and stir until combined.


  • Grease a 9×13 baking pan and poor in the mixture.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes (I usually stick a knife in the middle to see if it comes out clean before taking them out).
  • Despite being tempted by the delicious aroma of freshly baked brownies, don’t eat them yet. Let them cool.
  • Once cooled, ice them with the frosting so the top is covered.
  • Crush another bowlful of Oreos and sprinkle them over the brownies until the top is covered.


  • Cut, serve, and enjoy with a glass of milk!
  • And finally, go to the gym, because this is not a low calorie dessert…

    As a true, “chocoholic” according the description, this is an amazing recipe. I love brownies, so if they’re overloaded I’m sure that makes them ever more delicious.
