Peppermint Oreo stuffed brownies topped white chocolate peppermint bark start with a mix so they whip up in no time.
I love our local grocery store, HEB. They have great selection, the lowest prices in town, and they give so much back to the community. Folks from outside Texas always ponder why we’d have a grocery chain with such a strange name. The founder’s name was Harry E. Butt so when they expanded beyond the original store, they went with his initials instead of Harry Butt Groceries.
A few weeks ago I was perusing the aisles when I came across HEB brand peppermint oreos at half price. Who can resist peppermint Oreos at $1.50 a box?
The last couple of weeks have been really busy for me. Things are picking up at work. I’m trying to get things fixed around the house and I’ve been working on getting my yard back in shape. I planted nearly 300 bulbs this week, weeded my rose beds, and chopped down two small trees that were growing into my house. I still need to mow my lawn but that looks like it will have to wait until this weekend.
My students and colleagues now expect weekly treats so I was hard pressed to get something baked. I always have brownie mix on hand. You never know when the craving might hit. I’ve been wanting to try an oreo-stuffed recipe so this was my chance.
These peppermint Oreo stuffed brownies start with Ghirardelli brownie mix. You can obviously substitute your own favorite brownie recipe if you prefer made from scratch. I put about 1/4 inch of brownie batter in 10 muffin cups, an Oreo, and then topped with the remaining batter.
I topped my peppermint Oreo stuffed brownies with white chocolate peppermint bark. You don’t have to do this if you’re in a hurry or short on supplies. I left a few plain to make sure and they’re quite good. You can also just make these in a 8 x 8″ pan if you like. Bake following the box directions for that size pan.
