oreo brownies

August 24th, 2012

Last weekend, a few of our friends here invited us over for dinner.  Being the eager-beaver cook that I am, I wouldn’t let them rest until I’d volunteered to bring an appetizer… and a dessert.

So, for inspiration, I took to Pinterest!  And I found these amazing Oreo Bars, which looked totally delicious and only involved three ingredients — dream come true. 

But OMG, for a three-ingredient recipe, these are a pain!  They’re insanely sticky, so they wouldn’t release from the tin foil I poured them into (or, um, flattened them into), they got all over my hands and our countertops, and I could hardly cut them!  I tweaked the recipe a little so you guys can hopefully learn from my mistakes, because the finished products were pretty freaking awesome.

I had a request from a friend to name these “Moon Bars” but I’m still not totally sure why!  I guess because the oreos look like the surface of the moon?  Doesn’t “Oreo Brownies” sound more delicious?!

PS — The dish in these photos is from the Noritake Metaal collection!  I love these large square plates so much — they double as serving platters!

No-Bake Oreo Brownies


1 16 oz package of Oreos
1 package small marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter


Prepare a baking dish by lining it in foil and spraying the foil with cooking spray. 

Place Oreos in food processor and pulse until ground.  Melt marshmallows and butter in microwave until puffed, about 1 1/2-2 minutes.  Remove and pour in ground Oreo Cookies.  Stir to combine then transfer to a the foil-lined pan.  Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.  Remove bars out of pan and peel off the foil.  Place the removed bars in the freezer for another ten minutes, and then cut them into squares.  Once cut, the bars can stay at room temperature for several hours.

Makes 24 small bars

    I love 3 ingredient desserts, especially no bake ones. And yes, oreo brownies sound much better than moon bars!

    You used to bring oreo brownies to band rehearsal on your snack days in 8th grade. But they looked a lot different from these. I guess more “brownie” to them. YUM.
