Oreo Brownies – indulgent and delicious!

Oreo Brownies - indulgent and delicious! Fab Food 4 AllIt was my daughter’s 13th birthday last Sunday and she knows what she likes when it comes to cakes and sweet treats, so this year she decided she’d like me to bake some Oreo Brownies for the occasion! It was lucky that I’d decided to bake them on the Saturday morning because later that day we were to spend 5 hours in A&E when her cold brought on a bought of asthma. I wouldn’t ordinarily have gone to A&E but the Walk in Centre had closed by the time she agreed that we needed to get hold of an inhaler (as last attack was over a year ago it’s not something we had in the house). So daughter was well looked after and given oxygen and inhalant via a mask and was continually monitored before being sent home at 10.30pm with an inhaler.

Oreo Brownies - indulgent and delicious! Fab Food 4 AllDue to the high dose she’d been given we were given a sheet of instructions which meant that I had to give her decreasing doses over the next 5 days at 4 hourly intervals, including through the night. This has not been fun for either of us but today is the last day of medication (hooray) and hopefully she will be back at school tomorrow! I look forward to a whole night’s sleep! I had hoped to post this Oreo Brownie sooner but as you can see I’ve been a bit side tracked with a poorly daughter at home and sleep deprivation!

Oreo Brownies - indulgent and delicious! Fab Food 4 AllSo back to the Oreo Brownies, we still managed to have a birthday tea on the Sunday afternoon and the Brownies went down very well. My daughter enjoyed hers with a Frappacino from her favourite coffee house (from the supermarket) as an extra treat. Last year she insisted on a pancake stack with maple syrup as a cake so I can only guess what she’ll want next year. Hopefully it have a less eventful lead up too!

    Wow, your poor daughter, I hope she never has to go through that again. These look wonderful! I love brownies full stop, but interesting additions make them really special.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, she had a slight blip on the way to school the other morning but when you won’t wear a coat on a frosty morning! So dad had to take her her inhaler and then she was fine to be dropped off at school.

  20. Katie Bryson

    What a fantabulous bake Camilla!!! My boys would LOVE this. I’m sorry to hear your daughter’s been poorly – very worrying when things like that happen. I had asthma when I was younger, and I really struggled with it at times. I seem to have mostly grown out of it since we moved out of London.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Katie! Glad to hear your asthma is better, I keep thinking daughter has totally grown out of it and then a reminder comes along!

  21. Zerrin Günaydın

    OMG these look super yum! You’re making me hungry!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Zerin:-)

  22. Choclette

    PS, don’t forget #WeShouldCocoa if you make anything with chocolate this month!

    1. Camilla

      I’ll bear it in mind Choclette:-)

  23. Choclette

    Oh no! Asthma is not the right sort of birthday present 🙁 But these brownies look absolutely perfect and must have cheered her up a bit. I would love a birthday cake like this.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Choclette, yes asthma brought on by a cold wasn’t the best present but she went back to school yesterday just in time for a jab!

  24. Kavey

    Oh my goodness, Camilla, I need to make these for my Pete! They look delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kavey, I’m sure he’d love them:-)

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Bintu, I don’t blame you:-)

  29. christina conte

    So sorry to hear about your daughter, Camilla! Especially so close to her birthday, that wasn’t fun! My daughter has exercised induced asthma, and I know it’s not something you can just wish away 🙁

    Your brownies look lovely and how great that your daughter doesn’t go with a traditional cake every year! I think that’s fun! Happy belated birthday to her!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Christina, sorry to hear your daughter gets asthma too. I keep thinking my daughter has grown out of it but not totally it seems as it was far worse when she was younger. I will pass on you belated birthday wishes, thank you:-)

  30. Elizabeth

    These look SO incredibly good! I want, on my plate, right now, pretty please! 😀

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Elizabeth, what a shame, they’ve all gone:-)

      1. Elizabeth

        You’ll just have to make some more! 😀 I’ll be right there!!

        1. Camilla

          Any time Elizabeth:-)

  31. Eb Gargano / easypeasyfoodie.com

    Yum! These look amazing!! My kids just ask me for increasingly difficult themed cakes – this year my daughter wants a Lego Friends cake!?! As cake decoration is not really my forte, that one might have to be bought. I would much prefer her to ask me for a batch of these!! Sorry to hear your daughter has not been well, but glad she still managed to enjoy her birthday and is now on the mend!! 🙂 Eb x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Eb, yes my kids did ask me for a Minecraft Cake one year but they know I’m not much of a one for cake decorating so stick to simpler requests being realistic LOL:-) Scooping a hole of of a cake and filling it with sweets is about as advanced as I go LOL! I did pull out all the stops my my MIL’s 80 birthday cake once but it was a surprise and decor of my choosing:-)

  32. lisa

    OMG these look so good!! Love oreo’s and love brownies! The perfect combo 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Lisa:-)
