Cookie Dough+Oreos+Brownie= CRAZY GOOD!
I first saw this recipe on What’s Gaby Cooking, as the slutty brownies and then on Kevin and Amanda (quite possibly my most favorite new -to- me site). I knew I wanted to try them but I wanted to be sure that I would be able to take them somewhere—meaning, I did not want to leave them in my house. Me+brownies or cookies=dangerous.
A 4th of July BBQ was the perfect excuse. And, they were an instant hit. Really, I have never had someone rave so much over something I brought to a potluck, except maybe crack pie.
Since then, I have made them gluten free (using boxed mixes) for another 4th of July party and then again for an office baby shower. Always a hit.
These are as easy or difficult as you want them to be. You can use boxed brownies and pre-made cookie dough or you can spend a bit more time and make your own. It is simple. Cookie on the bottom, oreos in the middle and brownie on top.
I used half of the recipe for my favorite cookie dough and followed Gaby’s suggestion for the brownie layer.
Make some for your next party!
Until next time,
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1¼ cup white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 12-18 Oreos
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 10 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup cocoa
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup flour
- First, make the brownies. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add the sugar and cocoa. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, salt, and whisk in the egg. Fold in the flour and set aside.
- Next, make the chocolate chip cookie dough. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla. Add the chocolate chips. Mix just until combined.
- Now, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking pan with foil--making sure to leave a bit of overhang. This will make it super easy to pull the brownies out of the pan and leave you with one less pan to clean.
- Scoop the chocolate chip cookie dough into the bottom of the pan--pressing down to ensure an even coverage. You may have a little bit left over if you want to sample it.
- Open the Oreos. Eat one. Eat another one. Stop eating them. Make a nice layer of Oreos on top of the cookie dough. You don't need to get them super close together. You don't need to overlap them. Just a layer....don't stress so much about the details.
- Pour the brownie mixture on top of the Oreo layer. My brownie was a bit thick so I poured it on in glops and used a spatula to smooth it out. It worked wonderfully. You just want a nice even brownie layer over the top of the Oreo layer over the top of the chocolate chip cookie dough layer.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure it is cooked all the way through.
- Let cool for 20 minutes before removing the foil from the pan. Cut into little squares and watch them be devoured quickly.
