No-Bake Mondays: Fudge Brandy Brownies

Brownies with bite. Rowr.

This special little guy is made with Oreo crumbs, semi-sweet chocolate morsels, walnuts, condensed milk, and an extra-special guest: brandy. Let me tell you that it's the brandy that makes this treat kickass. If you're like me and you like chocolate bold and even slightly bitter, it takes care of that nicely. Gives it a little sexy kick at the end. Ooh-la-la.

You'll love the smell of crushed Oreos and condensed milk while making this. And I gotta say, this is one recipe where I probably ate too much of the batter.. Whoops.

No-Bake Fudge Brandy Brownies

In minutes 20 (+ 2 hours refrigeration)
Makes 12

1/2 pack semi-sweet chocolate morsels (6 oz)
1 1/4 cup oreo crumbs (about 14 cookies)
3/4 cup walnuts
1/2 can 14 oz condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 tbsp brandy

1. In a pan, melt chocolate morsels and butter on low heat for about a minute or until completely melted. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat.
2. In a large bowl, mix Oreo crumbs (set aside a tablespoon or two) and walnuts. Add condensed milk, vanilla extract, and chocolate mixture. Add brandy and mix well. If you're feeling a little gutsy, add another half a tablespoon of brandy for a solid kick!
3. Line whatever container you want to put it in with foil or grease it with butter and sugar.Press the mixture firmly onto bottom of container. Garnish with Oreo crumbs on top.
4. Refrigerate for about two hours and enjoy!

 Happy no-baking today!

  1. I think I will try this...soon :)

  2. Hey Carren,
    You should! This is definitely on my top 3 list... Let me know how it goes!

  3. kris, what's a chocolate morsel? i usually just buy the big blocks of chocolate being sold in shops like cooks exchange here. puede ba yun? and i'll just break it into chunks? how many cups is a 6 oz? am i asking too many questions, hehe

  4. chocolate morsels are those oddly-shaped chocolate things that come in the same pack as chocolate chips.. so you can use chocolate chips too! and 6oz is half a pack. I say about 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips :)

    big blocks of chocolate work too!

  5. More recipes with alcohol, please! :P

  6. When they state "oreo crumbs", do they mean the "whole cookie", or do you have to remove the white icing in between?
