Triple Dark Chocolate Truffle Brownies

These bars are extremely rich so I would recommend cutting them in smaller 2″ squares. Unless…if you are like me and have a sweet tooth for brownies or well anything chocolate in that case, you can cut them into any size you would like. Or just pretend you are cutting them into 2″ squares, that still counts right?!

Anyways, you NEED to try these brownies! Once you try theses you will never be able to go back to the original box brownies!

Triple Dark Chocolate Truffle Brownies

Makes: 9-12 brownies


Brownie Layer
10 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup +3 tbs (regular) cocoa powder
1/4 cup + 3 tbs dark cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Truffle Layer
4 oz cream cheese, cubed at room temperature
1 whole package Oreos (30 cookies)
Chocolate Coating
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tsp shortening


Preheat oven to 325°. Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.

Place butter, both cocoa powders and sugar in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds, or until butter is melted. Mix everything together until smooth. Stir in eggs and vanilla until combined. Pour in the flour and mix until everything is completely combined. The batter will be very thick and glossy.

Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan and smooth it out until level. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out slightly moist with a little bit of batter left on it (that’s what makes them fudgy!) Let them cool completly in the pan.

While the brownies are cooling, prepare the truffle layer. In a large food processor (you can also use a gallon size bag and anything to crush them with), add Oreo cookies and pulse into a fine crumb. Dump in cream cheese and pulse until a “dough” like consistency forms and you can’t see the cream cheese anymore – it will form a large ball when it’s ready. Once brownies are completely cool, take chunks of the truffle mixture and pack it onto the brownie in an even layer.

In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips and shortening at 30 second increments in the microwave until completely smooth and pourable. Pour the chocolate on top of the truffle layer and spread it out with a rubber spatula into a smooth and even layer. Place tray back into the refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow the top to set up properly. Take the pan out, allow the brownies to come back to room temperature for at least 10 minutes for smoother cutting lines.

And your Triple Dark Chocolate Truffle Brownies and done and ready to be served!
