Gingerbread Oreo Blondies

Today, I am teaming up with my blogging buddy, Jenny from Picky Palate. We are sharing Oreo recipes that are perfect for the holiday season! I made Gingerbread Oreo Blondies and Jenny whipped up Candy Cane Oreo Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Both of these festive Oreo treats need to be added to your holiday baking list. They are fun for the kiddos and kiddos at heart-like myself:)

Everyone was raving about the Gingerbread Oreos on Twitter so I had to hunt them down. They were not easy to find. I went to store after store and then learned that they are only available at WalMart. We are not WalMart shoppers, for many reasons, but I made an exception for Gingerbread Oreos. I had to try them!

To be honest, I wasn’t blown away. They were ok, but not life changing. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I turned them into blondies. I added cinnamon, ginger, and a pinch of nutmeg to the blondie dough to bring out the flavors in the Gingerbread Oreos.

Something magical happened to those Oreos after they came out of the oven. They are irresistible in blondie form! I layered them between sweet brown sugar blondie dough with white chocolate chips and the results were amazing!

The results were so amazing, I had to give all of the blondies away. Ok, I ate one, but I knew I would eat the entire pan if they were sitting on the counter, so we shared them with our friends. Everyone enjoyed them. The Gingerbread Oreo Blondies were a success!

Go to the store, grab some holiday Oreos and get baking! These Oreo Gingerbread Blondies and Jenny’s Candy Cane Oreo Chocolate Chunk Cookies are waiting to be baked!

Gingerbread Oreo Blondies

Yield: 20 blondies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Sweet brown sugar blondies with Gingerbread Oreos and white chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups of all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 cup white chocolate chips
20 Gingerbread Oreos

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.

2. In a small pan, melt the butter over medium low heat on the stove. Or in a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. In large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips.

4. Pour half of the blondie dough into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Press the Oreos on top of the blondie dough, evenly spacing them out. Pour the rest of the dough over the Oreos and spread as evenly as possible. The dough will be thick and sticky.

5. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.

    Newman’s Own makes ginger flavored Newman O’s- available all year, and a little more “healthy” (?) than an Oreo.

    oh yum, I have never really like oreos by them selves but in something else, they are awesome!

    A question– when you say “press the oreos”- are you putting the entire oreo cookie with the creamy middle into the blondie dough, or just the actual cookie sides into the dough?

    • Two Peas replied: — November 28th, 2012 @ 10:32 am

      You press the whole cookie into the blondie dough. Cookie face up! I hope that helps!

    I am the SAME way- I don’t step foot into Walmart unless I have to! But these cookies are a good reason for me to make the exception. What a delicious treat. Perfect for a holiday party

    Awesome recipe! I would never think of such a creative way to pair Oreos!

    Wow! These look so chewy. I have never tried the novelty oreos, but I am officially intrigued.

    I made Candy Corn Oreo Blondies and fell in love with them. I am hoping to bake something with the Gingerbread Oreos too, as I think they taste even better than the Candy Corn ones.

    I didn’t realize until I read your post that Gingerbread Oreos existed! I love the original Oreo and tend to not enjoy the other flavors…the original is just too good! Love your resourceful idea of making a blondie out of the gingerbread oreos. Your blondies look off the charts delicious and perfect for holiday treat gifts!

    Mandie @ Oh So Decadent — November 28, 2012 @ 12:46 pm

    MMMM these do look wonderful! And you could literally put your shoe between brown sugar blondie dough and it would taste amazing! Definitely a win in my book :).

    Unfortunately I can never seem to find any of the fun flavored oreos in Manhattan but I definitely want to make those blondies! With or without them!

    I am so out of touch, I’ve never heard of gingerbread Oreos. I’m not quite sure how I feel about them… but I do love blondies.

    I have not heard of these Oreos you speak of. Gingerbread? Oh my! I have to try to find them. And then make these blondies!

    Laura L — December 2, 2012 @ 9:18 am

    I love GBOCs!!!!!! But they are really hard to find around here and sell out quickly. Next time the store has them in stock I’m going to buy more than just 2 packages- those 2 lasted less than 3 days at our house!
