I love desserts, they are probably my favorite thing to eat. I love when things have a lot of frosting like on cakes, brownies and cupcakes. I had the opportunity to try out some new icings from Signature Brands. They have Oreo icing. Let me tell you about how much I used to love Oreo Brownies. In the 90’s there were Oreo Brownies. I loved them so much. They came in a box of 6 and they were so delicious. They stopped making them. I was really upset about it, they were better than Oreo cookies because they were so moist and the icing was amazing. A few years ago I was in the Reno airport and I saw an Oreo brownie, I was so excited. I thought it was back. I found them at the store and immediately purchased 4 of them. I was sorely disappointed when I tried them. They were not the same Oreo brownies I fell in love with, they were really not even good at all. I ended up throwing away the rest of them. After a year or so I bought one more, just in case the one I had wasn’t very good for some reason. I had the same result. I had come to realize that those were a thing of the past. I was kind of used to it because when my mom or I really like something it ends up being not made anymore.
I had the opportunity to try out the Oreo icings from Signature Brands, and they enclosed a recipe for Oreo Brownie bites. I thought that it sounded really good. I had seen the Oreo icing and the S’mores icing at Wal-mart and I was really curious as what they tasted like. When I received my packages from Signature Brands with everything I needed to try out the recipes I decided to try the Oreo Brownie Bites. I had my trusty assistant Noah in the kitchen with me and it was really easy to make. I was really surprised how quickly we made them. I ended up making normal sized cupcakes instead of the minis. I also forgot to put the icing in the middle, so I will be sure to do that next time. I can’t tell you how delicious they were even without the icing in the middle. I had found that Oreo Brownie taste once again, just as I remembered it. I really had to control myself from running in the closet and sucking down the whole package of icing. I have thought about going to Wal-mart to buy a package just for that purpose. I really think that Oreo Brownie Bites are my new favorite dessert; they are a brownie and a cupcake in one. Noah loves them too, I had to hide them from him because he would eat them all if he had the opportunity. I can’t wait to make them again soon.
There are four flavors of the icings from Signature Brands, Original Oreo, Chocolate Oreo, Original Hershey’s S’mores and Chocolate Cinnamon S’mores. You can easily put icing tips on the frostings so whatever you make will look like a professional made it. I love that because I am left handed and I am horrible at icing cupcakes and cakes.
Be sure to check out the website for more recipes. You can find the delicious icings at your local Wal-mart.
