Coconut Oreo Brownies.

I couldn't get the mint brownies out of my head and when I saw the fudge covered coconut Oreos, I knew that I needed them in my life, and that they were going to be this month's Pintertest.  (As if I needed a reason to make them... plus I had a rough day, and while brownies don't fix everything, they sure don't hurt.)  In case you are a weirdo who likes coconut flavor, but not coconut texture these are the treats for you.  Zero coconut flakes.  Zero texture.  All the yummy flavor.  Maybe the best Oreos in the history of Oreos.  Although the birthday cake ones were something special.  I miss those bad boys.

Coconut Oreo Brownies
(adapted from I heart naptime.)

You will need:
1 box brownie mix plus ingredients to prepare it (NOT the 9x13 family size)
1 package fudge covered coconut Oreos (I found them at Walmart)
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
2 tablespoons coconut milk (or half & half, whole milk, or evaporated milk)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla

Make brownie mix according to package. Chop half the package of Oreos and stir them into the brownie batter. Pour batter into a greased 9x9 pan. Bake according to brownie mix directions. 
Once your brownies are done let them cool for an hour. With an electric beater, mix together 1/4 cup butter, powdered sugar, coconut milk, and coconut extract until fluffy. 
Spread frosting over brownies. 
To make chocolate glaze, combine 1/4 cup butter, chocolate chips and heat in the microwave in thirty second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. After chocolate chips are melted, stir in vanilla. 
Pour over frosting and spread with a rubber spatula. Chop remainder of Oreos and scatter on top of frosting. Chill one hour before cutting.

  2. Did you ever try the Banana Split Oreos? They were special edition a few years back (haven't been able to find them since; hold me) and they were hands down not only the best Oreo I've ever tasted, but also the best store-bought cookie I've ever tasted!
