AAAUUGHHHHHHH WHYYYYYYYY didn’t I put it in the food processor?!?!?!! That way there wouldn’t be awkward disgusting grains of rice in my brownies. I DON’T FORGIVE MYSELF FOR THIS I AM SO STUPIIIIDDDDDDDD
Ok back to the recipe. But really, I am stupid.
With my leftover Oreo rice, I did the only thing I know how with chocolatey starchy goops: turn them into brownie batter.
Start with some Oreos in a food processor. I think I used 22 Oreos, and maybe 5 or 6 sheets of graham crackers? Crumbs go in a bowl, along with a can of sweetened condensed milk and a teaspoon of vanilla.
After stirring and tasting, I realized that it was painfully sweet and needed something salty and bulky to balance it out. Salted peanuts or pretzels would have been perfect, but I had neither. But you know what I did have?
Mixed them until the chips were all broken up.
Next, into the oven on “medium-low” for 20-ish minutes.
The tops were crackly, and the texture was very brownie-like (albeit a bit dry because mine burned around the edges). So sadly, these cannot be called man bars.
This is the best chocolate lava recipe I’ve done. Just forget the other ones on this blog.
Warning: there might be a lot of sugar in this.
“It is a sugar bomb”
1/2 banana, mashed
1/4 c melted butter
3 oz melted chocolate
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
11 Oreo cookies, quartered roughly
2/3 c dulce de leche repostero (MUST be “repostero” or “para reposteria.”)
Mix banana, butter, melted chocolate, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the flour, cocoa, and salt and mix for several minutes to combine everything (and produce some gluten, which makes brownies nice and chewy).
Add the Oreos and stir to incorporate them. Pour the batter into a well-buttered 8×8-inch pan.
Stir the dulce de leche in the jar to smooth it out a bit, and then dollop globs of it on top of the brownie pan. You’re going to swirl it with a knife or spatula to make it fun and pretty.
Bake at “medium-low” (maybe 300°F?) for 18-20 minutes. It should be done only around the edges and still liquid in the center – and suitable for eating in a bowl. Quite delicious. Quite delicious indeed.
No glamour shots of the plated product because it was so good that once I was eating it I didn’t care about the blog anymore.
