Father's Day is coming up soon! We all know the best gifts are the ones you make yourself, so here's a little inspo for some treats for Dad.
We turned our favourite brownie recipe into these decadent Oreo Brownie Sandwiches, especially for Father's Day!
Pop them into a bag or box with a ribbon and taa-daa! Your Father's Day gift is all sorted (but save one for yourself 'cause they are delicious!).
Oreo Brownie Sandwiches
For the Brownie Sandwiches
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp coffee powder
190g plain flour
For the Oreo Buttercream Filling
250g butter, softened
500g icing sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 pack Oreos, crushed
Spare Oreos for inside
Melt the butter in a pan, then once melted, keep the pan on the stove and mix in the sugar. Keep mixing for 2 minutes until it has thickened.
In a bowl or your mixer bowl, add all the rest of the Brownie ingredients, then mix slowly while pouring in the butter/sugar mixture from the pan. Mix until combined (it will be sticky!), then pour the dough into a dish lined with baking paper and sprayed with spray oil.
Chill the dough in the dish in the fridge for 2-4 hours or overnight, then once it's firm roll the dough with your hands into golf-ball size balls. Space them out on a lined baking tray and bake at 180 degrees celcius fanbake for 10-12 minutes, then leave to cool.
While they are baking, mix up some buttercream. Whip butter until pale and fluffy (around 5 minutes), then add icing sugar and beat until creamy, finally add milk and vanilla essence and mix until combined. We made this into Oreo filling by adding 1 packet of crushed Oreos, but this is optional (Maltesers work well too!).
Once the Brownie Sandwiches are cool, pipe or spread the buttercream onto half of the Brownie Sandwiches, add an extra Oreo in the middle if you like, then sandwich the remaining Brownie Sandwiches on top and press together gently to make a Sandwich.
If you don't want to make icing, these are also delicious as Brookies (brownie cookies!).
Bag or box these up for Dad and he'll be ready to dig in!
