Slutty Brownies seem to be every food blogger’s go-to recipe at the moment. They are being pinned, posted about and shared all over every social network I look at and they always look mighty fine. So how could I not try them? In truth I’ve been craving them for a couple of weeks now, but only got around to making them yesterday.
So are they worth all they hype?
The combination of ready-bought biscuit-mix, muffin-mix and soggy Oreo biscuits just isn’t particularly great. If it was made with homemade ingredients it would be much nicer, but it would still have those damp soggy Oreos in the middle and it’s the whole slutty easiness which makes the recipe so appealing in the first place…
Even my 7 year old’s response was ‘mummy, I don’t really like this‘ and half the brownie was left on the plate. Gobsmacked is not the word. It’s a chocolatey treat, I didn’t think it would be rejected by a small boy.
That’s not to say they’re totally without merit. If you’re looking for an easy treat which involves minimum effort then by all means give them a try – I’d love to know whether you’re as underwhelmed as I am or whether you’ve found the secret to making them truly delicious…
You don’t really need a recipe for slutty brownies, but I’ve made you handy infographic which tells you pretty much all you need to know. If you did need a ‘proper’ recipe for Slutty Brownies I got mine here.
