ISO: Old Oreo brownie box mix recipe

waterdog13 | Nov 7, 201309:18 AM     12

Hi everyone,

So I know there's a zillion Oreo brownie mix recipes out there, but I'm looking for one on particular. In the early to mid-90s, there was a box mix for Oreo brownies that included a separate white icing/filling packet. (We lived in the Denver area at the time if that helps.) After you made the brownie mix you'd put gobs of the icing on top and then swirl everything together with a knife for a marbled effect. Into the oven it went and out came gooey deliciousness. My sister in particular loved this mix and would 'bake' it often (I know, I know, but we were kids and it was good and we could make it without supervision).

Anyways, in the mid to late 90s grocery stores stopped carrying it. A few years later, I saw the no-bake Jello version but it's definitely not the same. Does anyone out there remember this mix? I'd love to create a from-scratch (maybe slightly healthier) version of it as a surprise for my sister. I know the white icing was definitely not cream cheese-based, or at least didn't taste like it was (my sister hates cream cheese). Pretty sure it wasn't buttercream-based either, but to tell you the truth at this point I really don't remember.

Thanks for your help!
