Lorraine Pascale's cookies and cream fudge brownies

Makes 16


  • 175g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 large eggs and 2 large egg yolks
  • seeds of 1 vanilla pod, or 2 drops of vanilla extract
  • 175g light brown soft sugar
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 x 154g pack Oreo cookies, broken into pieces
  • icing sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease a 20cm square baking tin and line with baking paper so that the paper slightly overlaps the sides of the tin.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan, then remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Leave for a few minutes until the chocolate softens, then stir together.
  3. Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the sugar in two lots, pouring it in around the edge of the mixture so you don’t knock out the air, and whisk until the mixture becomes stiffer.
  5. Pour in the chocolate mixture around the edge and mix gently.
  6. Add the flour, cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and a third of the Oreos. Stir, then pour into the tin. Press the remaining Oreos on to the mixture.
  7. Bake on the middle shelf for 25-30 minutes – it should be slightly gooey in the middle.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin, then lift out using the baking paper and cut into squares. Dust with icing sugar.
