Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n' Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar | Tasty Tuesday | Kayla Kitts Photography

Tasty Tuesday!

It's been a while since I've done a Tasty Tuesday ... and well, I don't know about you, but that's just not gonna work for me!

I, thankfully, found this recipe on Kevin&Amanda a couple years ago - and it's been a hit ever since.  Kayders and I take goodies into Dominic's work often, and a guy there says he'd "pay so much money for these!" ... he's lucky I just love to bake ;).

Without further adieu:

--Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n' Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar--

These things are heaven I tell you.  Hea-ven.  Warning:  you will want a big glass of milk on hand.  You're welcome!

Amanda does a great job of showing you step-by-step directions - but it really is simple: layer, bake, enjoy!!

What you'll need:

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 9x13 Brownie Mix
1/4 cup hot fudge topping

What to do:

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

- Cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes.
- Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
- 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.  (This is where I usually say to add extra chocolate in, but not this time.  Fear not - we will be adding it in there, I promise)
- Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish that's been lined with wax paper and sprayed with cooking spray.  (This will save your life.  Line that baby.)

- Top with a layer of Oreos.  Yum, Enough said.

-Mix together brownie mix, add an optional (aka highly recommended) 1/4 cup of hot fudge topping to the mix.
- Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos.

- Amanda's recipe calls for covering with foil here - but I personally have had better experience without the foil.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
- Let cool completely before cutting.
- Note from Amanda {and I second!} : brownies may still be gooey in the middle when still warm, but will set up perfectly once cooled.

Another note:  Store bought cookie dough can make your life easier I hear, but I have yet to try it =)

PS - totally going to give it a try with Holiday Oreos -- let me know if you do too! <3
