Halloween Oreo Brownies


This is a perfect dessert for Halloween.  When I saw the orange Halloween Oreos in the store, I thought they would be fun to crumble into a brownie.  The result is a dense, delicious, colorful chocolate brownie.

For a change, this recipe could also be made with mint Oreos.


Enjoy!
