I’ve completely ripped off this recipe from another blogger, The Londoner, and now I’ve heard reports of it circulating Pinterest too. This is so easy and so naughty that it deserves its title, Slutty Brownies, and it should only be reserved for the naughtiest of your friends-people who couldn’t care less about calories. I love the idea of layering different desserts, and think it’s so brilliant to see a pie inside of a cake, or a piece of candy inside a cookie, or in this case, to see cookies layered inside other cookies and brownies. I’m getting inspired just thinking of all the possibilities that could come from such an innovative technique so I think I’ll play with that idea a bit from now on, especially if I’m too short on time to do anything fancier. I kind of like how excited people get to see the final product too. I brought some of these treats into work today, and they were gone before lunch. Clearly, no one told my coworkers not to ruin their appetites by eating sweets before a meal. Oh well, who lives by that rule anyway?
Stuff You’ll Need
Makes 1 8″ square pan of brownies, portion sizes are up to you
- 1 box of chocolate chip cookie dough mix
- 1 box of fudge brownie mix
- 1 package of double stuf Oreos
- Ingredients to make the cookie dough/brownie batter-usually one egg, 1/3 cup of canola or vegetable oil, and 2 Tbsp of water per package
- Square cake pan-either 8″ or 9″
- Parment paper (optional)
How to Do It
- Preheat the oven between 350 and 375 degrees F if you have the option. If you don’t, preheat it to 375 degrees F. Cut a piece of parchment paper that’s large enough to cover the bottom fo the pan and still have 1-2″ paper hanging over the sides.
- Follow package directions to make the chocolate chip cookie dough, and line the bottom of the pan with the dough.
- Create a single layer of double stuf Oreos across the cookie dough. There should be a few left over in the package for you to snack on, but don’t go nuts. It takes almost an entire package to cover the cookie dough if you’re not stingy.
- Follow the package directions to make the brownie batter, and pour it over the layer of Oreo cookies. Use a rubber spatula to spread the batter evenly if it doesn’t cooperate.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a fork or wooden tester comes out clean when stuck into the middle of the batter.
- Remove from the heat, and let cool in the pan slightly. If you’ve used parchment paper to create handles, you can pull it out of the pan to cut. If you haven’t, you can cut pieces from the pan while it’s still warm. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream to make them really fabulous.
Tip: Be creative with this if you want. I’m going to try additional attempts at this, but there are so many different brownie and cookie batters, that you can’t possibly go wrong.
