Yep, you read that title right. Thanks to Pinterest.com, I have another recipe to share. This one has been pinned by 100s of people at Pinterest, but it is courtesy of Amanda of KevinandAmanda.com, a food blogger who makes fantastically ridiculous desserts and shares them with the world.
And so I attempted one of her creations today. A chocolate chip cookie dough oreo stuffed brownie. Oh yeah, people. That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!
I pretty much followed Amanda’s recipe, but I’ll show you the photos I took and put in my 2 cents. First up: the pan. She recommends lining your pan with wax paper and spraying the paper with cooking spray. I did this. And she’s right – the “loaf” of cookie/oreo/brownie will pop right out with the wax paper.
Then I made the cookie dough – just a regular cookie dough. Put that in the bottom of the pan and used a spatula to make it as even as I could.
Next up were the Oreos. I ran out of the regular Double Stuf Oreos, but we had a container of “blondie” Oreos, so I stuck one of those in the empty spot.
Next up was the brownie batter. I just used a regular brownie mix for this, and per Amanda’s note, I added a bit of Hershey’s syrup to the batter. I made the fudgier version of the batter (2 eggs instead of 3). I poured that over the Oreos and them used a clean spatula to spread out the batter over the Oreos.
Doesn’t that look like it’s going to be amazing? Look at the depth of chocolate/oreo goodness in that pan!
Amanda said the mixture should bake for 45-55 minutes on 350 degrees, but I ended up letting it go longer because my toothpick came out gooey at the 55 minute mark. I let it go another 5 minutes and then took it out.
The only bad thing about the baking process? THE SMELL of the waxpaper. Cootieboy came into the kitchen about 5 minutes into the bake time and asked if a candle was burning. Sure enough – the wax paper was smoking in the oven. It never caught on fire, but I definitely kept my eye on it just to make sure.
Once the pan was out of the oven, I let it sit for as long as I could possibly stand it, and then cut into it.
The brownie mix was definitely underdone – but that’s okay, because that’s how I like my brownies anyway – very mushy in the middle. The cookie dough was almost perfect.
Cootieboy came in for a taste test and declared them good. So do I.
