There are very few seasonal Oreo flavors that get me excited, but there really is something special about the orange-and-black sandwich cookies that you can only get in October.

Oreo cookie-studded brownies start with your favorite brownie batter. Below is our recipe for homemade chewy brownies, but any box of brownies works just as well (here's our readers' favorite brownie box mix).
If you're in the business of baking up a brownie for one, you can make this idea single-serve too.
