  3. Bake for 32 to 35 minutes, then test the brownies with a toothpick. Insert it into the center of the pan. If there are only a few moist crumbs, the brownies are done. Keep checking every 2 minutes until you have moist crumbs.

  2. Add confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then increase to high speed and beat for 2 full minutes.

  3. With a spoon or rubber spatula, fold in the chopped Oreos. Taste. Add salt if frosting is too sweet.

  4. Spread buttercream on top of cooled brownies. Chill uncovered for 30 minutes and up to 1 day in the refrigerator.

Chocolate topping:

  1. Cut the butter into a few pieces and place in a small saucepan with the chocolate chips.

  2. Melt together on low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and combined.

  3. Pour chocolate on top of the buttercream. Spread all over the top in an even layer. Allow chocolate to set at room temperature for a few hours or in the refrigerator for 1 hour before slicing and serving.

  4. Serve and enjoy.
