You take the high road…

…and well, I’ll take the low road. Sometimes it’s necessary in life to take the high road. Bite your tongue. I know some people say you don’t feel better telling someone off, I beg to differ. :P I loved telling the trainer off at the gym. I loved when Uncle Buck gave the principal a quarter and told her what to do with it. And I LOVE when Juno’s step mom goes off on the ultrasound technician (for the record I am not in favor of 16 year olds being with child, but it’s not my place to judge…and it was just a really good movie. :) )

I considered not taking a photo of an Oreo. Ohhh, for about 3 seconds. I mean seriously, how could I not?

First off, just want to say thanks for the support. I’ve been getting lots of nice comments and email! I can assure you all that this is not upsetting me, just amusing me. You can’t teach junior high for all those years and run a blog for 5 ½ years without having thick skin. Not saying that words can’t hurt me, just saying that some random person from the Internet who I have never met in life certainly isn’t going to be the one doing it. Besides, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” –Eleanor Roosevelt…and those ladies and gentlemen are words to live by!

And though I considered just posting directions on how to open the Oreo package and eat them, I decided to be nice and try and make something with them. Around the blog world there have been chocolate chip cookie covered Oreos as of late. Don’t know you started them but they are making the rounds. So I thought, oh, brownie covered. Only to discover that someone had already done it, and not that long ago. So I figured this is the month of love, so why not bust out some Red Velvet. I didn’t want to do cake, so I found a recipe for Red Velvet Brownies…perfect. I used the Vanilla Oreo because I prefer them…plus I like the color contrast as well.

This is a thicker batter than regular brownies, so they don’t dip as well as one would like. You kind of have to really dip and spread the Oreo around. And please use Double Stuff (why do they even bother making regular stuffed anymore?). I was afraid that they might break, but luckily that did not happen.

On a super side note: DO NOT eat these fresh out of the oven. The filling in the Oreo gets super-hot and burns your tongue something horrible and there aren’t enough swear words in the English language to cover that. I know. Live and learn. At least I am finding that out for you. See the pain I am willing to endure for you. :)

Red Velvet Brownie Dipped Vanilla Double Stuffed Oreos

½ cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Pinch salt
1 TBSP red food coloring
1 tsp. vinegar
2 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
About 16-18 Double Stuffed Vanilla Oreo Cookies (all depends on how much batter you put on yours)
Preheat oven to 350F. Place cupcake liners into two muffin pans (mine hold 12 each). You won’t get 24 unless you are a way better dipper than me. Which you probably are. :)
In a saucepan on medium heat melt the butter.
Remove the butter to a large bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar, in that order, mixing between additions.
Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and stir it into the cocoa mix.
Fold in the flour until fully combined.
Dip the Oreo into the batter and do your best to completely coat it. Yep, you are going to get a little messy. Deal with it and move one. Place Oreo into cupcake liner. Do this with all of them. Eat any leftover Oreos, if anyone asks tell them they fell on the floor. :P
Bake for 14-16 minutes.
Let cool, and then eat.

  1. you are awesome.

  2. oh my word!
    I can’t eat this right now because I have gestational diabetes but in 5 or 6 weeks when this baby is out of me I am making these ASAP!
    Looks amazing! (and i certainly can’t argue with double stuffed!)

  3. holy bejeezus (do I say that a lot here??) what have you done!!

    I like how the red cake turns the oreo kinda pink. I love pink.

  4. Peabody you are the BEST!!!! I literally laughed out loud when I saw this. Keep up the great blogging.

  5. These look amazing. I will probably end up making them the next time I am tasked with bringing treats somewhere.

  6. um…wow! these look amazing!!!!!

  7. I am usually just a lurker… I don’t like oreos or red velvet cake, so this doesn’t appeal to me, but my husband would think it was great!

  8. love your blog!
    and this recipe is perfect… i love red velvet! i think this is a great recipe. and thanks for the warning about the filling…:)

  9. So true. Being a blogger with a thin skin is just crazy talk. I like to take all hate email as a compliment. Or put a good old “that’s what she said” after it. And move on.

    Red velvet touches my soul in so many awesome ways. And I’ve never had those vanilla oreos. Tragedy? I think so.

  10. Hannah E. P. says:

    Ooooh! I think I’m going to have to give these a go for our SuperBowl party!

    And you know what, my husband is a big huge freak and doesn’t like double stuff Oreos. Doesn’t. Like. Them. He likes the regular ones a bunch though. Not sure why we’re married :) I like to gross him out by making my own ‘quad’ stuff Oreos by taking the cookies off the tops of 2 and sticking them together. I swear I’m not 12 :)

  11. Those look super yummy! I love red velvet!

  12. BRAVO!

  13. OMG!?!?! I have to say I am normally a lurker but for the last post about the numbnuts complaining I thought you deserved to hear my comment! Not to mention the fact that you are an INCREDIBLE baker! We don’t seem to see such amazing concoctions here in Australia but I drool everytime I look at your blog.

  14. Sound messy to make…but toally worth it!!

  15. What?! Now this dessert is just crazy! But it sure is pretty! :)

  16. I can’t wait to make these, my family will love them! They for sure won’t last long in my house.

  17. Michelle T says:

    I thought for a minute you wouldn’t do it…but I’m glad you did!

    Ps. I think my boyfriend emailed you about charging micro amounts of money for reciepe cards and such – it could be as a donation basis.

  18. There is such a thing as red velvet brownies??? Crazy! And what is it about the vanilla oreos that does it for you Peabody?

  19. You go girl! Red velvet brownie, you are seriously awesome. Those look evil enough. ☺ I’d probably stick a bit of batter in the cupcake liner, squish the oreo in and slop some more on top. I’m lazy. (But yes I did, as a child, take an entire package of doublestuffed: open them, scrape them out, and eat the filling… All of it.) Oy.

  20. You are fabulous! Definitely wanting some of these… yum!

  21. LOL The add above the comments is a tip for a flat belly…right underneath the picture of the Red Velvet Brownie Dipped Vanilla Double Stuffed Oreos. PRICELESS!

  22. Hey… bout a wagon wheel next!!!!

  23. I’ve got the same ad, also thought it was apropos… especially since while reading this I kept thinking, “No, I may not go buy blond Oreos, I do not need them, my jeans are getting too tight. Must look away.”

  24. Bahaha. At first I thought this post was just a picture of an oreo cookie. That would have been epic. Listen to me, I’m talking like a teenager. Woo! K, now I feel pathetic…

  25. I’d just like you to know that my boyfriend and I just had a long discussion about how much I like/appreciate your blog, and I think the recipes you give us. I’ve gone to your site for a while now and made some of your recipes, which I love. :)

    Not sure if I can make something as crazy decadent as this, but maybe. :P

  26. Nice!!

  27. Fantastic post!

  28. I love you Peabody.
    I smirked something fierce when I saw your post come up on FB and there was a photo of an oreo. Love love love it. Can’t wait to try these. I actually just bought a bag of oreos for when my diet is over and I get back to baking since I wanted to do an oreo stuffed in something monstrosity.

  29. These look delicious! Oreos are the only store bought cookie I buy these days. So sorry that people have been nasty to you, particularly while you’re going through a difficult time in your life!

  30. I think PickyPalate was the first to do them. I love this idea of yours for Valentine’s – we have a bake sale at church the week before VDay – I think I’ll make these!

  31. Amazing- yum!

  32. I will be making these to pass out as my valentine’s.
    Awesome blog!

  33. Man, some people get so worked up about things, you have to wonder sometimes, why do they care so much about someone they don’t even know to be so rude, if that makes any sense :) Take as many photos of Oreos as you’d like, I say!
    These cookies sound irresistible. I may just have to make a batch for my Valentine.

  34. Thanks for the heads up about burning your tongue on the filling. I swear I once made up a completely new language when trying something straight out of the oven. I think you always take the high road. It is like I tell my girls, you don’t have to be best friends with everyone but you do have to treat them the way that you would like to be treated.

  35. My mom always told me there was no point in telling someone when you were upset and standing up for yourself because it would be like talking to a brick wall. They just wouldn’t care or get it. I always knew she was wrong. (Although the repercussions of growing up with this mindset haunt me still.)

    Stay true to yourself. And if the situation calls for it…let ‘em have it (respectfully, of course). Cheers! :)

  36. You rock Peabody!! F*$k ‘em if they can’t take a joke.

  37. Neat idea! I haven’t seen something like this before. I have friends who love red velvet cake, so this is added to my “must-make” list!

  38. LOVE this. LOVE your sense of humor. LOVE your site!

  39. This is perfect for Valentines Day!
    In our part of the world we deep fry Oreo’s. Yes, I shamelessly buy the funnel cake batter from the store and dip my Oreo’s in that, then deep fat fry them until they float. I know, unhealthy. Try it though. Of course, shave some truffles over them so they are up to par for the finer folks in the food world! Love your humor!

  40. These look freakin awesome!! Sorry you had to burn your tongue though!

    Ps. I would have laughed my ass off if you had just posted how to open the container and eat oreos.

  41. Ha Ha! Just the Oreo pic I was waiting for. Such a clever idea.

  42. That looks terrific!



  43. I <3 you. ^_^

    I had to laugh when I saw that picture of an Oreo… and might I say, I love Oreos! They're definitely a weakness. I refuse to buy them… because I'll eat the entire darn package far too quickly. ;)

  44. First time to actually click over….you are CRACKING me up! I love it. I love sass. Keep it up. I can’t click over when I read at work (hey, don’t act like I’m the only one) but that doesn’t mean I can’t click over when I get home!

    Keep up the SASS!

  45. I wanna try this! So good.

  46. Holy crap. I’m such a sucker for vanilla oreos. This looks awesome!

  47. Hee hee hee. . .

    I mean really, I hope that person kept their subscription long enough to see this. I really, really do!

  48. I will take the low road with you. I like all kinds of food…good and (supposedly) bad. The current recipe on my blog includes Velveeta. But, I think that is mandatory for Super Bowl, right?

    I love red velvet cake and I love those golden Oreos. Great combo!

  49. haha….I missed this post yesterday, and just happened to scroll down past the roll post today…glad I did!

  50. This is awesome, thanks for the laugh!

    Red Velvet covered Oreos, you have the best ideas.
