Oreo Brownies

My husband loves to send me links of things I should try out as far as baking or cooking. It usually means, "Hey babe, I think these look delicious. Can you please make these for ME?". I didn't mind trying these out as I was definitely in the mood for some chocolate, which doesn't happen very often at all. I know.. weird. I made them last Sunday and shared a few with a couple of friends that came over to watch the Oscars with us. I took the rest to co-workers who devoured them in no time. A couple of people warmed them up in the microwave for just a few seconds and said they were so delicious warm. The smell of them warmed up was amazing!!

2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 eggs
1 1/2 tbsp instant coffee granules
1 tbsp vanilla
1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup +2 tbsp flour
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chopped Oreo cookies (25 cookies)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9"x13" baking pan.

In a heatproof medium bowl, microwave butter, chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate until melted and smooth. About 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute. Allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, coffee, vanilla and sugar. Blend the chocolate mixture into egg mixture; cool to room temperature.

In a medium bow, sift together 1/2 cup flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture. In a small bowl, stir Oreos and remaining 2 tbsp of flour. Add Oreo mixture to chocolate mixture. Pour batter into baking pan and smooth top with a rubber spatula.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; do not overbake. Allow to cool. Refrigerate, tightly wrapped, until cold; then cut into squares.
