NEXT UP: Oreo-Surprise Brownies

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Want to know how to make friends fast?

Make this recipe. Seriously. No one can resist the mind-blowingly awesome combination of thick, fudgy brownies and comforting, creamy oreos. Your lucky taste-testers will deem you a culinary genius. And you want to know the best part?

These treats are super easy to make. I'm talking two-ingredient, 40-minute total, mix-pour-bake easy. Sure, you can make brownie batter from scratch, but when you're in a rush--aka need to make something to bring to a Super Bowl party at the last minute--a trusty box of Betty Crocker Brownie Mix will do. And when your newfound friends are feeling sad--aka they are watching the New England Patriots barely lose to the New York Giants--these Oreo-Surprise Brownies will ease their pains.

I hesitate to even call this concoction a "recipe" since it's so simple; you only need brownie mix and Oreos. Fair warning though: only make this if you are ready to acquire a whole new bunch of friends.
