When it comes to dessert making sometimes I just sit and think about how I can fit the most calories possible into one bite. Let me tell you friends, I don’t know how many calories these brownies have in each bite, but I’m guessing the number is frightfully high. Which means? These are some dang tasty brownies. I’m always getting cookie dough, brownies, and oreos mixed into things (hello Coldstone!), so why not put the 3 together? I used my tried-and-forever-true brownie recipe, added some oreo pieces, and stacked some egg-less cookie dough on top and let me tell you, the result is something straight from heaven.
Brownies (Adapted from Buns in My Oven)
1 cup butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups good quality cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
12 oreos, broken into small pieces, but not crushed
Cookie Dough “Frosting”
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tablespoons milk
1 cup chocolate chips (I always use Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate)
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 glass pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a small saucepan melt your butter over medium-low heat. Once the butter has melted stir in the sugar and cook for another couple minutes while you keep stirring.
3. Pour your butter/sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add in the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and vanilla until everything is well combined and smooth (use a hand mixer or stand mixer).
4. Stir in the flour by hand and then carefully fold in the oreos. You don’t want to crush them so you still get heavenly chunks of oreo goodness.
5. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven when done and cool completely before “frosting.”
6. Make your cookie dough “frosting” by using a hand or stand mixer to cream together the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Once smooth, add in your flour, salt, and milk and mix into a dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.
7. Frost your delicious and well cooled oreo brownies and let the “frosting” set up in the fridge for about an hour for easy cutting.
