As I was working on some blog planning today, I realized that I missed a big day. National Oreo Day was last month, apparently. And we missed it!
Since I love all things Oreo and cookies-and-cream-flavored, this is indeed sad. Since I’ve rejoined Weight Watchers, this is probably for the best. (Although, looking at this completely objectively and logically, Oreo Day DID take place well before my first WW meeting…)
Still, once I got Oreos on the mind, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the delicious Oreo desserts I’ve made. It’s not a good idea for me to make one right now, but that won’t keep me from sharing an AMAZING recipe with you. YOU can make it!
(Please. Let me enjoy these brownies vicariously?)
So, let me introduce you to Oreo Magic Brownies. “Magic,” because they are magically delicious. SO GOOD. Seriously. Make them now! (And then tell me about it. No, wait, don’t. No! Do! Tell me how good they are!)
Oreo Magic Brownies
Original source: Cookies & Cups
1 box brownie mix and ingredients needed according to the package directions
1 (16.6 oz.) package Oreo cookies, divided equally into thirds, coarsely chopped
1 (8 oz.) tub of Cool Whip, thawed in fridge
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Prepare brownies just like the package says, then add 1/3 of the chopped Oreos. Bake according to your package directions, and then let the brownies cool completely. Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and Cool Whip together, then add in another 1/3 of the chopped Oreos. Spread this mixture on top of the brownies.
Melt the chocolate chips and oil in the microwave (medium for about one minute should do it, stirring every 30 seconds or so). Spread or drizzle melted chocolate over the cream cheese layer, and then sprinkle the remaining Oreos on top. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
And then? Then ENJOY. Happy belated Oreo Day!

Who doesn’t like Oreos? I would choose Double Stuffed or Golden Oreos … but I’m not choosy when it comes to Oreos. :)
Yum! These brownies look so delish! I love Oreos. I always have, and I’m a 63 year old grandma now. That’s why I don’t buy them, because I would eat the whole bag! And I don’t need any more you-know-what around the middle. :)
But I may just have to buy a bag to try out this brownie recipe.
