Brownie covered Oreo's

I got this idea from my cute neice, Alison, who got it from this website:
 http://picky-palate.com/2010/12/06/brownie-covered-oreos/ I tried it for the Super Bowl with my saucepan brownie recipe and regular Oreo's. As you can see mine weren't too pretty because of the melty icecream, but it was GOOD. I thought it would be cute for Valentine's day with the red filled Oreo's and sprinkled on top with red sprinkles.  Instead of dipping the Oreo's in the Brownie mixture like the original recipe said, I put a small spoonful of Brownie batter on the bottom of the muffin tin and then placed an Oreo on that and then came another spoonful of brownie batter. Mine came out looking like small cupcakes or muffins, but were perfect for holding a scoop of icecream and chocolate sauce drizzled on the top, then they had the oreo cookie in the middle for a surprise. YUM!
I used my Saucepan Brownie recipe which I love and will post again for this.

Saucepan Brownies
Melt in saucepan:
1 stick of butter
2 - 1 ounce squares of unsweetened chocolate
Remove from heat and add:
1 cup of sugar
Stir then add:
2 eggs, one at a time, stir after each
Then stir in:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Then add:
3/4 cups flour
dash of salt
Stir till well mixed. Can add nuts or chocolate chips. Bake in greased 8 x 8 pan at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes (or until desired doneness, I like mine slightly gooey)Sometimes I like to sprinkle nuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips on the top before baking, then when they're done I drizzle melted carmels over the top. Or drizzle with marshmellow cream and fudge frosting. Sinful.

Here is how I made my brownie covered oreos:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray a muffin pan with non stick cooking spray.
Put a spoonfull of brownie batter into each muffin cup, then place an oreo cookie on top the batter. Then comes another spoonful of brownie batter.



Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes or until brownie is set, you don't want to over bake.

Mine came out looking like little muffins

I topped mine while they were still warm from the oven with icecream and chocolate fudge icecream topping. You could do with the red filled oreos and sprinkle the top with red sprinkles. Or I think any miniature candybar would be good in the middle as well. Just use your imagination!
YUMMO!
