So, I said I’d share the occasional dessert, and trust me, these are your new favorite brownies. “Brownies” is hardly a fair description for these- the bottom layer is chocolate chip cookie, the middle layer is double stuffed Oreo, and only the top is actually brownie. Bring these to any potluck, bake sale, or to work just because and they WILL be gone.
I first saw these on thelondoner.me. The London-based blogger had named them “slutty” because, in her words, “they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy.” I suppose if you’re going to be bringing these to church or your kid’s school bake sale, you may want to re-name them. Maybe just Oreo chocolate chip cookie brownies? Definitely doesn’t have the same appeal.
The other issue with the recipe from The Londoner was that she used British baking mixes, which must be smaller than ours (go figure) because when she made her brownies in an 8×8 pan, they came out ok. Mine were like, five inches thick and raw! At the time, hers was the only recipe for Slutty brownies on the internet, so I had to figure out the American version for myself. I also got a laugh because she calls for “2 packs of Oreos- double stuffed if you can find them”. And pictured are two little sleeves of Oreos. Haha… no wonder we are so much fatter than everyone else. One American pack of Oreos is more than enough to fill a 9×13 pan, not the 8×8 pan she used, and you can find double stuffed and about 18 other varieties of Oreos anywhere here!
If you aren’t a big fan of Oreos, of course you could stick all sorts of things in the middle of these brownies instead… Reese’s peanut butter cups, Snickers, caramels, etc. I’m a huge fan of Oreos, though, so I doubt I’ll ever try this recipe with anything else!
One more thing- I only bake with real butter. Resist the temptation to use margarine, or shortening, or vegetable oil, even if the mix calls for it. Whatever brownie mix you use will probably call for vegetable oil. Replace this with melted butter! Seriously! It works just fine and tastes soooo much better. If you’re going to go to the trouble of baking, don’t ruin it with flavorless oil.
- 1 box brownie mix (Duncan Hines is my favorite)
- 1 bag chocolate chip cookie mix
- butter to prepare cookie and brownie mixes
- eggs to prepare cookie and brownie mixes
- 1 package Double-Stuf Oreos
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, prepare cookie dough according to cookie mix directions and set aside. In a separate large mixing bowl, prepare brownie batter according to brownie mix directions and set aside. Spread cookie dough evenly in bottom of 9×13 pan. Lay the Oreos on top of the cookie dough layer in the pan, packing them as close together as you can. Pour the brownie batter evenly over the top of the Oreos so that the Oreos and cookie dough is completely covered. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until fork inserted into center of brownies comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool completely and cut into 24 pieces.
