Oreos Love Company!
What are they? Well.....start with a base layer of chocolate chip cookie dough......top that with a layer of Oreo cookies layed out side to side....you still with me? Then you're going to top all of that off with a layer of brownie mix (box mix or from scratch...your call). And then you're going to stuff your face when they come out of the oven and not worry one little bit about how many calories could possibly be crammed into one little piece of these. I made these for 4th of July.....and calories don't count on a holiday, right?
I had been seeing a picture of this going around on Pinterest for the last couple of months....you do look at Pinterest right? It's totally addictive.....ok, so maybe if you're not on it yet, you should stay away.....because it's really totally time sucking! In case you were curious though.....here's my boards :)
Anyways, I kept seeing this Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n' Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar.....and I was waiting for a chance to make it when there would be enough people to share in the amount of calories it would take to consume a pan of these...and Bang! 4th of July at my sister-in-law's house....perfect!!
I actually decided at the last minute to throw this together and it really couldn't be easier. I followed their recipe and did the chocolate chip cookie dough they had listed....but if you were really in a crunch (or you're my sister-in-law who doesn't bake things from scratch) you could even substitute a refrigerated cookie dough.....with so much going on in the bar, I don't think it would be detected! Since I was in a hurry, I threw in a box of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies.....my go-to brownies when I need that old school brownie fix (since that's all we had at home growing up....my mom almost never made stuff from scratch). Bake this heavenly pan of chocolate-y goodness for about 50 minutes.....and then you'll have to wait to let it cool off enough to not completely fall apart when you cut into it. I'm not joking when I say this pan felt as heavy as taking a turkey out of the oven!!
So check out the blog Kevin and Amanda for the recipe.....and don't say I didn't warn you......and Enjoy!!
