- 20 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1-1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup AP flour
- 1 package of Oreo (regular stuffed or double stuffed)
- 1 cup unsalted butter (at room temp)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 egg
- 2-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups AP flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
For the Brownie layer:
- In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium high heat. Once the butter is melted, add the sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk to combine and remove from heat. Add the salt, vanilla and eggs and continuously whisk until the eggs are combined. Add the flour and continue to mix. Set batter aside.
For the Cookie Dough layer:
- Cream together the butter and sugars with a mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Set dough aside.
- Pre-heat the oven to 340 degrees.
- Line the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking pan with tin foil, or spray the bottom of the pan with baking spray (I used PAM).
- Layer the cookie dough on the bottom of the baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom layer.
- Layer as many oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap. One single layer will do. I had some mini oreos left over from another recipe and wanted to use it up, so I put a mini oreo in between the regular sized ones.
- Pour the brownie batter on top of the oreo layer and make sure it’s evenly layers on top.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes. Test with a knife or toothpick to see if the center is done. If the knife/toothpick comes out clean, let the brownies rest before serving. If the knife/toothpick comes out with batter still on it, allow the brownies to bake about 5 minutes more.
- Serve with ice cream (optional).
This is REALLY bad for your health, but hey, you only live once! 3 layers of goodness – brownies, oreos, and cookie dough. Lots of chocolate involved. Simple concept, and fairly simple to make. You can even use a shortcut by using pre-made cookie dough from a bucket/package and brownie mix from a box. Then, just layer everything together.
