This is a very easy traybake that looks gorgeous and is also super yummy. Because it is just melted chocolate on top, it is easy to transport which makes it more then ideal for a picnic or get together. But I would advise you to take one for yourself before you do because they will disappear, take my word for it. The recipe is quite simple and straight forward which makes this one great when you need some last minute baked goods in a hurry. This is also great because it is basic but delicious flavors that nearly everyone is guaranteed to devour. I always think, when in doubt make something chocolatey!

Oreo and Chocolate Marble Squares (9 x 13 inch traybake)

120g butter, softened

1 cup milk

2tsp vanilla extract

2 cups plain flour

1 1/3 cup caster sugar

1tsp baking powder

1 egg white

4-5 oreos

2tbsp cocoa powder

100g chocolate chips, optional

200g milk chocolate

sprinkles

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc/350ºf and grease and line a 9 x 13 inch baking tin with baking parchment.
  • Beat the butter for about 30secs until creamy then add the milk and vanilla extract and gently try and mix it in a little but not with an electric mixer because it will splash all over you. Don’t panic at this point because it won’t mix together and it will look like your doing it wrong but don’t worry.
  • Sieve in the flour then add the caster sugar and baking powder. Use a wooden spoon to mix that all together.
  • Add the egg white and using an electric mixer, beat the mixture for about 2mins, making sure all the batter is smooth and lump free.
  • Divide the batter between two bowls, about 2/3 for the chocolate and 1/3 for the oreo. Crush the oreos into one bowl and mix through and sieve the cocoa powder into the other bowl and toss in the chocolate chips if using, again mix through.
  • Pour the chocolate batter into the prepared tin and spread out evenly. Put dollops of the oreo batter all over the chocolate layer and then use a skewer to swirl the two batters together to make a marbled effect.
  • Bake in the oven for about 25mins or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool in the tin then remove and let cool completely.
  • To finish, melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in thirty second bursts, mixing between each interval. Pour the melted chocolate all over the traybake and spread out into an even layer. Decorate with sprinkles and leave to let the chocolate set. Or just dig in, who doesn’t like some melted chocolate!
