Here are my Oreo Cookie Pops, making their debut at my girlfriend Clarissa’s 21st birthday celebration earlier this afternoon!
After all the hard work yesterday and some assistance from K, I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. Also that, as a whole, the dessert was rather well-received at the party. I couldn’t be more satisfied.
It’s amazing how they fit right into her theme of “madly eclectic”; the girls especially were attracted by its cute exterior and someone even commented she felt like a little girl again munching on a lolly 🙂
Oh, and did I mention it was a really sweet party?
Allow me to introduce you to a little heaven on earth.
Yes, that statement may well be bordering on the lines of blasphemy, but I’ll leave you to decide if you’d like to hop on over to the Dark Side (dark chocolate, geddit geddit?) once you’ve had a taste of these brownie cups. They’re not just ordinary, boring brownies. And neither are they simply Oreo-flavoured or peanut butter brownies.
Inside these little cups of magic are two whole Oreo cookies, and all-natural peanut butter (which is good for you, if eaten in controlled portions, though I can’t say for sure with this recipe…). If that isn’t a mouthful, I don’t know what is!
Indeed, these cups are what I’d like to call “calorie bombs” — be sure to watch how many you gobble down!
Inspiration for these brownie cups came from a Food Snots entry I chanced upon. The recipe there calls for brownie mix but as I’d have you know, I don’t trust pre-mix ha ha. So, I combined a dark chocolate brownie recipe from Joy the Baker with the recipe I found on Food Snots and, voila! Nothing short of a genius idea 🙂
