#51 New Recipes: Oreo'n'Cookie'n'Brownie Ridiculousness

I will warn you now, this is not for the faint of heart. Or anyone with clogged arteries. I'm pretty sure this is even more deadly than the deliciously dangerous Salted Caramel Butter Bars I made.

Adding to the threat - it's incredibly easy to make.

You start off with chocolate chip cookie dough:

Then you add a layer of Oreos - the recipe calls for double-stuffed but I'm going to use regular ones next time.
Pour a layer of brownie batter over it (the box kind of brownie batter, no need to get fancy):

Bake it.
Cut it.
Serve it to your unsuspecting friends:

A little of this stuff goes a LONG way. It's incredibly rich. And delicious. Moist, crumbly, so much chocolate goodness... and way, way too easy to make. The recipe I found is mostly a recipe for making the cookie dough layer, but it would be just as easy to scoop dough from a pre-made tub. Possibly easier, because I felt that the cookie dough from the recipe "rose" a lot higher than I expected (or was necessary).

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg Double Stuffed Oreos
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix
1/4 cup hot fudge topping

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well to thoroughly combine.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt, then slowly incorporate into the mixer until the flour is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish that’s been lined with wax paper and sprayed with cooking spray.
5. Top with a layer of Oreos.
6. Mix together brownie mix, adding an optional 1/4 cup of hot fudge topping to the mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos.
7. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
8. Remove foil and continue baking for an additional 15-25 minutes.
9. Let cool completely before cutting — brownies may still be gooey in the middle when still warm, but will set up perfectly once cooled. Enjoy!!
To half this recipe for an 8×8 brownie mix, simply half the chocolate chip cookie dough ingredients.

Even with making my own cookie dough this recipe was far too easy. Make sure you have plenty of people coming over if you're going to make this, or that it will be easy to leave at your host's house, because a little bit goes a long way. It's too rich to eat large pieces, but if you're like me that won't stop you (even though it should!)

Danger Will Robinson! DANGER!
