Yesterday I introduced you to the new limited edition Gingerbread Oreos~today I’m going to cook with them!
There are plenty of fun things to do with Oreos–you can make Oreo Cookie Truffles, dip them in white chocolate, or even bake them into cupcakes. All of those would taste delicious with these new Gingerbread Oreos. But I wanted to do something different. But what?
I did what any good blogger would do-I headed over to the Frugal Upstate Facebook Page and asked for advice! I wanted some ideas of what flavors would go well with gingerbread, but I didn’t want to give away yet that I’d be using Gingerbread Oreos.
Chocolate. Orange. Raspberry. Lemon. Rum. Cinnamon. Caramel. Vanilla.
All of those sounded delicious. I decided that you couldn’t go wrong with chocolate. Then I was chatting with my friend Laura of Waughzee’s Wee Wonders and she suggested I create gingerbread brownies, and top them with a whipped cream infused with rum. Or orange. Or both.
Ohhh. Now that sounded GOOD. So I hit the kitchen and created:
The process was super simple. First I lined my brownie pan with parchment paper (to make them easy to get out). Then I covered the bottom of the pan with Oreos:
I busted open a box of my favorite brownie mix and mixed them up (or you could use a double batch of my Saucepan Brownies). I poured them over the Oreos and baked until done.
